There are literally dozens of versions, commercial and mag type-ins. All the early 80's arcade hits had ZX81 versions, Defender, Scramble...etc. There are probably 20 or more versions of Space Invaders. Of course the quality varies greatly. Most of these are available in the ZX81 software collection at Internet Archive, last time I checked.

One game called "PackRabbit". It is one of many versions of the Pac Man games. The PackRabbit came on a cassette, at first. Now, it is converted into a .p file.

Enjoy that game! :lol:

Maybe the most ambitious Pacman was posted by Brian Lewis, pseudo-hires and the behavior of the ghosts was supposed to mimic the the original.
