That Time Amstrad Casually Rewrote James Bond | Nostalgia Nerd
[The first 1000 people who click the link will get 2 free months of Skillshare Premium: skl.sh/nostalgianerd4] The Sinclair ZX Spectrum James Bond 007 Action Pack; a bit of a mouthful (no crude Bond jokes here pls). Released in 1990 by Amstrad, this was a computer and game bundle which pushed the ZX Spectrum technology into the 90s, and in doing so, actually did something even more drastic; it rewrote the story-line for James Bond's The Living Daylights. It may not be canon, but the whole pack, and the way it went about things is both a curious tale, and an interesting thing to inspect. So let's delve in.
