ZX Shop

Welcome to the webshop of BUMFUN SOFTWARE, a ZX Spectrum software house set up by me, George Cropper (aka George Bum) to bring you the best in new and exciting ZX Spectrum titles. All of our tapes are duplicated from a Professionally mastered digital source at normal speed to avoid the problems often associated with hi-speed duplication from analogue media. All tapes are supplied in the classic "jewel" case unless otherwise stated. Keep checking back for limited edition runs with big-boxes, coloured tapes and more goodies for the collector ! I hope to keep bringing everyone exciting software for many years to come for the ZX Spectrum !

 

NB: WHEN ORDERING, PLEASE LET US KNOW WHAT MODEL OF SPECTRUM YOU HAVE. SOME GAMES HAVE COMPATIBILITY ISSUES WITH BLACK +2 SYSTEMS. WE CAN SUPPLY DIFFERENT VERSIONS OF THE GAMES FOR MOST TITLES IN THIS SITUATION.

 

(EASIEST REMEDY: BUY A GREY +2 - IT'S THE MACHINE OF KINGS!)

 

REGARDING POSTAGE:

WE NOW SHIP ONCE A WEEK, ON A FRIDAY OR SATURDAY.

WE ARE A VERY SMALL BUSINESS WITH ONLY MYSELF WORKING FULL TIME ON THINGS AND SOME FRIENDS HELPING OUT. DELIVERIES WILL USUALLY (ALWAYS, MORE OR LESS) BE MADE MUCH SOONER BUT PLEASE ALLOW 28 DAYS FOR DELIVERY. THERE CAN BE TIMES WHEN WE ARE WAITING ON INLAYS/TAPES/ARTWORK TO ARRIVE/BE COMPLETED SO PLEASE UNDERSTAND THIS.

IMPORTANT NOTICE TO NEW AND REGULAR BUYERS

Unfortunately, due to circumstances outside my control I have had to increase prices on all of the BUMFUN titles. This is due to the fact that I get all of my supplies from the UK and because of "Brexit" the pound is now very weak and everything is costing me substantially more. I can only apologise for this and hope that the pound returns to normal sooner rather than later. I have not increased the price in line with the drop in currency value so I am now actually selling the games for less (in terms of the value of the £) than I was before all this Brexit madness. The pound is now very low in value in relation to the Euro, whereas when I began BUMFUN it was at 1.42 !

 

Also, due to several packages going "missing" I now require ALL buyers to use the "Registered Shipping" option. I simply cannot afford to replace packages at great cost to myself just because the buyer wanted to save a small amount on postage. It's not possible for me, financially, and such situations have now cost me a lot. BUMFUN is essentially run as a service to the community and I have yet to "break even" on it as an enterprise. As long as I am not continually losing money I will carry on but I cannot continue to fund multiple packages. I want customers to be happy and have replaced shipments up until now but I cannot continue to do so. So far, missing shipments have only affected a few customers and I have replaced their packages at cost to myself but, sadly, I cannot and will not continue to do so. So, for peace of mind I require customers to use the REGISTERED option.

 

Having now sold a fair few titles the feedback from everyone in the community is that my product is of the highest quality currently available in the ZX Spectrum scene. I use custom wound tapes, not generic off the shelf brands and very high quality inlays with full colour printed tape labels designed by a graphic artist with 15+ years of experience. In terms of price vs the cost of new games for other retro systems I feel that even with this (small) price increase I still offer great games and unbeatable quality at a great price. I hope customers new and old will continue to buy from me and enjoy the titles on offer. Very soon I have a LOT of new titles to release so get ready for more quality games from the #1 name in modern ZX Spectrum software !

REGULAR BUYER WANTING STANDARD SHIPPING ?

 

If you are a long term, trusted buyer then please get in touch if you wish me to send your packages via "regular" shipping.

 

However, as stated above, please bear in mind that I CANNOT replace such shipments if they go missing.

 

I am currently approaching more excellent ZX Spectrum programmers about including their games on my BUM FUN SOFTWARE label. If you have a game that you think I might be interested in then please get in touch via the FUNKYSPECTRUM FAN PAGE or my EMAIL

I am always interested to hear from new programmers and I offer a full service to bring your product to the market and will ensure your game is both professionally packaged and presented !

I am not solely interested in ZX Spectrum software, either, so if you have games for another system then it is quite possible I will be interested in them, too ! If you think I might like what you do then I would love to hear from you !
