If you're the type of person who is always on the lookout for new and interesting games to play on your ZX Spectrum or your favourite emulator, then we have some great news for you.

Over the course of a year, a teacher at Bearsden Primary School (Dougie mcg) has been showing a group of Year 6 students how to design and code their own games for the popular micro, and now he has published many of them online for others to play (as spotted by 80snostalgia!).

The list of games includes 8 titles (with more apparently to come). They cover everything from the millennia-long battle between cheese and mice to a journey to find missing puzzle pieces, and a contest with the devil himself!

Here's a description taken from the itch.io page:

"The Primary 6 pupils of Bearsden Primary have been working on these games all year.

They have designed and animated their characters; coded their games; designed and tested their levels and created a loading screen.

We really hope you enjoy our creations and we'd love to hear your feedback!

Just download the games and play them on your favourite emulator."

It's amazing to see kids so young interacting with the 80s computer today, and it's even more fantastic that they are being shared online for others to get some enjoyment from.

You can download the games here. You can also find some more games from Dougie mcg's previous Year 6 classes here.
