2Shaken but not Stirred

Released in 1982 for the ZX Spectrum, Shaken but not Stirred is a text-based adventure game featuring the iconic British spy. It was actually the first James Bond game ever developed too, and sees the player become 007 as they attempt to stop Dr. No from destroying London with his nuclear weapons.

The game begins with Q offering the player a range of weapons (which is the first of many decisions in the game), and builds up to some highly tense moments. Shaken but not Stirred is a difficult game, and one that will push even the most trained spies to their limits. The first half of the game also allows the player to return to London when needed and gives the player the opportunity to get in to the polished shoes of Bond and make meaningful decisions – ones that 007 is expected to make on a regular basis.
