Welcome to Last Train to Tranz-Central, a two-part run ‘n’ gun adventure for the beloved ZX Spectrum! 😀

Part I (Side A): All aboard the Space Train!

In the Wild West frontier of the future, Space Trains race across the stars, piloted by powerful next-gen Artificial Intelligence (A.I.) with a whopping 48k of memory each. I know!

Tech this advanced always goes wrong (right?). Following a hook-up with incompatible peripherals at a remote space (train) station, the A.I.s have become corrupted and sent several Space Trains on a crash course with populated planets! It’s up to Maurice, The Space Cowboy, to reach the rogue A.I. in each train’s engine room before the outposts become a crater the size of Nebraska…

Each train is now the last train… unless you succeed!

Part II (Side B): The return of the Space Cowboy

Tranz-Central is saved! But small splinters of code have infected four more trains, heading towards brand new targets. New and old enemies are on board to stop anyone interfering. But the Space Cowboy has returned, leaping from train to train, striving to put right what might go wrong. Hoping each time that the next train will be the train home…

    Really fun little game, different enough from the typical platformer and difficulty curve good also, gets quite tough as you progress.

    I find the music a bit repetitive so play it in 48k mode. Great work on this game.
