ZX Spectrum emulator found inside GoldenEye 007 for Nintendo 64


Just when you thought you knew every little secret hidden inside GoldenEye 007.

ROM Hackers recently discovered that the game houses a ZX Spectrum emulator and several of Rare’s classics for the system – Atic Atac, Sabre Wulf, Jetpac and Knight Lore.

One can assume that the emulator was a test for what would become the Jetpac segment of Donkey Kong 64, and that it simply wasn’t scrubbed from the code before the game was finished. Still, it’s a pretty cool homage to the company’s origins.
