Did you spend the better part of your youth bathed in the soft glow of 8-bit graphics, clutching a joystick?

Then you're going to want to start saving up your pocket money for this new handheld beauty: the Sinclair ZX Spectrum Vega+.

Built by Luton-based Retro Computers Ltd in sponsored_longform with the original Spectrum creator Sir Clive Sinclair, the Vega+ crams 1,000 original games into its slender build - with thousands more available online to download for free. 

You can either play the extensive library on the in-built LCD screen, or hook it up to your TV to replicate your gaming sessions of years gone by.

Currently seeking funding via Indiegogo, you can pick up the Vega+ for £100 - which is an absolute bargain if your main gaming interests lie in well-made classics and rewarding platform adventures.
