ZX Spectrum Game Chaos - 3D Printed Fridge Magnets

Posted: Jan 18, 2015

Another one of my favorite retro games from the '80s is ZX Spectrum game Chaos: Battle of the Wizards. This is a game I spent many hours of my youth playing, so I will now use the 3D printer to recreate bits of it.

Here we recreate some of the sprites from that game into 12mm-thick printed objects with magnets embedded on the back. Ideal for sticking to your fridge or log burner in my case!

Once again, like my previous models based on bitmap sprites, these models were created pixel-by-pixel in a 3D CAD program.

Here is a model of the memorable Gooey Blob from the game:

Chaos: Gooey Blob

I've created several models from the original game bitmaps to enable us to recreate a scene from the game. Here is the Red Wizard, surrounded by Gooey Blobs and an approaching Golden Dragon. His only shelter is his Magic Castle.

Instead of mounting them on a fridge, I have placed the pieces on the side of a wood-burning stove. It fits in well in the living room, though I must remember to remove them when I turn it on!

Any chance of selling those? I'm definitely interested!

Hi Stan,

Sure, if you still want some of them drop me an email to [email protected] and I'll let you know. I only have the pieces in the picture above.

I have reached the end of the internet and I am happy. This is truly glorious.
