Döner Kebab, a ZX Spectrum game on streaming services

Once again, here’s an EP that was supposed to be released physically (as indicated in the YouTube video) but apparently wasn’t distributed that way. I’m talking about the Döner Kebab EP by the band Cobra Laser (yes, the same as that other ZX Spectrum program).

Instead of repeating all the previous articles each time, I’ll refer you to the dedicated page, which explains what I do with vinyl records and lists all the pages containing programs, explanations, etc.


As with the others, I bought the track to get a DRM-free version (it’s sold on the iTunes Store) and attempted to convert the track. It took me more than one try, for a simple reason: the programs I use have specific corrections for recordings of dubious quality (old tapes, vinyl, etc.) that are not necessary with a recording from a digital copy (the signal is assumed to be clean). Well, it took me about ten minutes, no more. So, there’s a game, Döner Kebab, inspired by Tapper but which does not contain its code. The author explains that it’s a command for Cobra Laser’s EP, which was supposed to be released around 2013.

In the game, you have to serve kebabs as quickly as possible, spending a few seconds to cut the meat, get the customers out, and pick up the returning plates. I’m pretty bad (there are 12 levels, I made it to the 4th), but it’s still fun with a controller. And there’s music if you play the game on a ZX Spectrum 128 (a variant developed with the Spaniards, with better sound capabilities).
