A walkthrough of the 2021 ZX Spectrum game, The Swarm is Coming... Written by Minilop, the author of other fine modern Spectrum games such as Twenty Four Hour Parsley People ( and Cocoa and the Time Machine (

Since the colonisation of Proxima B in 2112, Humans have been mining Proxima Moon Alpha for the element Proximium.

Scientists have discovered that Proximium has a unique characteristic, being able to distort the space/time continuum.

Proximium has now been incorporated into the first successful experiments with teleportation, enabling small, non-living, items to be transported across space time in seconds. Scientists working at the Moon Base are working hard to improve the capabilities of the first ‘Materializer-ZX’ (Mat-ZX) aiming to get it to a point where humans can be teleported, which they hope will help to rapidly accelerate the colonisation of Proxima B and further human expansion across the galaxy...

This is a huge game split over four missions (plus a training mission):-

From the recording originally sent by Pavel Plíva to Recorded using "rollback", a feature of the emulator which allows you to mark a point, which you can then roll back to later if you get into difficulty, and try again. More info. on the channel "About" page:
