MultiDude (Spectrum) released :: 01 Oct 2014

MultiDude is a Spectrum puzzle game from Alter Ego developers RetroSouls where the player must guide brightly coloured characters to safety; often this involves trying not to block the exit route out for one dude whilst moving the other. It also has a rather lovely soundtrack for AY-equipped Spectrums.
