HTML5 Spectrum Loading Screen

I was searching around to see if someone had written a Javascript library to simulate the old ZX Spectrum loading screen. I didn’t find a library but I did find this great little HTML5 screen loader on robeesworld.

For those of you too young to remember, this is what Spectrum owners would see for large portions of their time with the machine:

This inspired me to hack a quick one for our GameCity visit with MicroTowns and here’s what take 1 looks like. Need to pixelate it next and add the yellow/blue borders 🙂
