Welcome to Last Train to Tranz-Central, a two-part run 'n' gun adventure for the beloved ZX Spectrum! :D
Part I: 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.
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: 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…
PlanetaSinclair gave a score of 8/10 for this game! Thanks! :D

Great game. Adjusted difficulty, fluid, you can redefine keys and a lot of fun. Congratulations!!! :-)
Ok. Now I got the bundle!! Thanks for giving us this creations. Our ZX need to be fed... Cheers!
what's the length of the game ?
If you get it on cassette it's approximately 4" × 2½" × ½
Well, it entirely depends upon. your skill level. I've never actually timed it but if you know what you're doing I'd say about thirty minutes to an hour for each part?
If you know what you're doing ;)
Hope that helps!
Love this. This is actually the first Spectrum game I've ever played so I appreciate the emulator recommendation as well
Thank you for the kind words, and welcome to the World of Spectrum! :D It's fun and silly and the water's lovely!
Can I ask what made you want to try it? Genuinely curious :)
I think it was actually this tweet that made me add it to my wishlist months ago and I just finally got around to picking it up
Also a small correction, I just remembered I played Jetpac forever ago so it's technically not my first Spectrum game but it's the first one in a very long time.
Ah, I see, Rob is always very kind and generous! Thank you for trying out the game - I have a bunch of others, some paid for, some free - something for everyone ;)
Thanks again for your kind interest!
Hi, is it ok with you to upload a walkthrough of this game to YouTube? Thanks.
Sure! Go for it! And ty for playing! :)
Your game looks awesome, Great job! Are you interested in a co-op bundle? I recently finished an update for my game ([DIS] Assemble) and we are making a pre black friday bundle with another art asset pack
Ameazing!! I love it!
