User Reviews

  • One of the best ZX-Spectrum emulator.

  • Brilliant emulator.

  • Fuse is a very accurate and feature rich emulator. It emulates a great number of Spectrum models and clones, plus some peripherals. The monitor/debugger also is great, I use it regularly. Small improvements could be done in user interface and documentation, but this does not diminish it's value.

  • Very useful. Thanks.
