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 (https://youtu.be/-PMRXtF_ORU) and Cocoa and the Time Machine (https://youtu.be/s0sA6Ci6XBs)...
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):-
Training mission - 00:00
Mission 1 - 06:28
Mission 2 - 26:45
Mission 3 - 41:54
Mission 4 - 01:10:56
As per the author's request, I have not included showing the access codes for the later missions.
This game can be purchased, and a free playable demo is available, here: https://minilop.itch.io/swarm
From the recording originally sent by Pavel Plíva to http://www.rzxarchive.co.uk/. 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.
