That's pretty cool to see the battlescape running on the simple ZX Spectrum hardware .. sounds like it needs at least a 128k Spectrum, or the further expanded Russian Pentagon/Scorpion machines to work on.  (according to World of Spectrum)  But impressive nonetheless.  I'd try it if the text weren't all in Russian. :)

I was even more surprised to see that there were multiple levels and environment destruction.  A shame there were no line-of sight restrictions, but I guess that's a little much to ask.  ..not sure the igloo to everything-else ratio in the ice levels is realistic. ;)
