My look through all the old Your Spectrum and Your Sinclair magazines continues, in the run up to the ZX Spectrum Next launch (as explained before in my first post about Old Spectrum Mags). Here’s my look at the highlights of Your Spectrum Issue 11 from Feb 1985.

All images are taken from the ever-awesome Internet Archive. Here is the full magazine if you want to take a closer look.

Interesting article below about Activision releasing the Ghostbusters game before the movie came out, and also a cool Slo-mo device to slow down your games (should you want to do so!).

Another cool ad for the unique Deus Ex Machina.

I’d spotted adverts for Soho Sex Quest in the last few issues of Your Spectrum, but here is an actual news piece about it, which probably vastly increased the sales! Check it out below.

Daley Thompson’s Decathlon straight in at no.2! Impressive.

Pretty cool ad here.

I would have loved to have a digital tracer device like this for my Speccy back in the day.

I love a good disc drive.

Another article on graphics tablets for the Speccy. I’m always amazed about how many artistic devices there were.

OCP? They should have released RoboCop, not Address and VAT Manager!

I do love chunky printers and disc drives with big ribbon cables.

They really do do great game articles in Your Spectrum. Here’s one on Underwurlde.

I’m sure I know the name Mike Johnston from later Your Sinclair issues or Sinclair User perhaps. I could well be wrong, but his name and photo just ring a bell.
