Welcome to the Egghead homepage

My name is Jonathan Cauldwell, and back in the late 1980s I began writing games for the ZX Spectrum computer.  Several were published, the most famous of which were probably Egghead and Egghead to the Rescue, which appeared on Crash powertapes in 1990.  The ZX Spectrum died as a mainstream games machine in 1993, but if you owned one of these machines in the years leading up to that time, the chances are you've played at least one of my games.

Fast forward to today, and I'm still producing games for the machine.  On this site you'll be able to find out more about the games I wrote back in the day, what I'm working on now, as well as maybe learning how to create your own games for the machine which kick-started the British games industry.

Often found lurking around various retro gaming forums, most notably World of Spectrum.  Occasionally I'll do talks or demonstrations at retro gaming events and have been known to do the odd write-a-game-in-a-day challenge.  Have laptop, will travel...

Contact me via the Feedback tab.  Alternatively - and despite the fact that I don't own a mobile telephone - you can also find me on twitter (@ZXSpectrumDev) and Facebook.
