Sinclair Infoseek is a Sinclair ZX Spectrum related search engine that will let you find anything on name.
Simply type (part of) the name you are looking for and start the search.
The engine is not case sensitive and accepts the usual MSDOS wildcards `?' and `*' plus the regular expression tokens `^' (matches the start of the name) and `$' (matches the end of the name).
Intelligence has been put in the engine to skip punctuation, spaces, articles and several other words and often mistyped names are automatically corrected (e.g. try searching for "School Days").

Titles can be found by searching on any of original name, one of its aliases, re-release name(s) or multi-part subtitle(s).

Say, you are looking for the game "Abu Simbel Profanation"

Working queries:      Non-working queries:
abu simbel profanation abu profanation (missing words, use the '*' wildcard, e.g. "abu*profanation")
abusimbelprofanation abu +profanation (we're not Google)
abu simbel profanation abu simbel (wrong order)

All games can be played on-line using the ZZ Spectrum Java Spectrum emulator! Simply click on the icon on the search results page to run.
Icons with a little yellow question mark in the upper right corner indicate TZX files, which will be on-the-fly converted to TAP files. This process does not always work, so the game might not load succesfully...

All information is hyperlinked to new searches, making it extremely easy to find other titles from the same programmer or publisher.
All major databases are consulted: Apart from these Spectrum databases, the following remote databases are consulted: Listed information on a software title includes full name, publisher, producer, programmer and artist names, year of release, any tie-in licence, memory requirements, supported joysticks, original list price, series indications, every single reference in the magazines (linked if the article has been put online), as well as direct download links for game images, loading and in-game screens, instructions, cassette inlays, adverts, maps, hints, cheats, walkthroughs and any remakes.
Covertapes, compilations and series are fully indexed and cross-referenced as well, so you will know where each title appeared and what else was on the same tape or series.

Apart from software titles, it finds books, hardware and add-ons and names from publishers, producers, programmers and artists.
Software houses/person names report whether the name was a label from another software house, who holds the copyrights today, including links to their current web-sites and a note whether free distribution of their software is allowed plus their full list of software titles (hyperlinked of course).

At the far right of the grey title bar for each (Spectrum) game, there's link named '[tzx]'. Clicking this returns a TZX image with the information contained in an 'Archive Info' block (ID 32). This can be useful when creating or working with TZX files - you can copy the block to your TZX file, instantly having all details about the game in the file.

Option 'show pictures' will embed loading and in-game screenshots and/or cassette inlay thumbnails in the WoS search results area,
Option 'list only' will severely reduce the length of the results page as it only lists matching entries rather than showing all the details.

Important note: all prices listed on the search results pages are the prices at which the items were originally sold at the time.
They are just listed for historical reference - you can not buy those items here.
