It doesn't get much more hardcore than writing a game for a computer from my childhood, so 5 stars for theme interpretation, but unfortunately it doesn't seem to be working very well on the Windows version of FUSE, so I couldn't rate anything else... send me a message if you can fix it then I'll try again and update my rating.

A dim memory from the past helped me guess that I had to issue the RUN command after the .tap file loaded, got instructions and a level was generated, but as soon as I make a move my character disappears then all the enemies slowly disappear one by one and then finally an error gets logged (see screenshot).

Which emulator should this run on? 

Developer

Hi. It should work on any but it has only been tested with FUSE.  Unfortunately all the java spectrum emulator applets no longer work on modern browsers but I found one which was written in JavaScript which seems to work.  I'll set it up tomorrow and then you won't need to install anything.
