Re: New File Browser for ZX-UNO

New test version available here. This just adds screen preview for v2/3 .z80 files in fullscreen browser mode (this only works from the NMI version of the browser) along with some small bug fixes.

Re: Frumpy

005:
  • On completing a room, you can now press left to retry it (to improve your time) or jump to move onto the next.
  • Rooms now have codes. When you start a game, you can enter a room code to start from a specific room or just press ENTER to start from the first screen.
Download here.

Re: Frumpy

The boxes and umbrellas are a really nice new addition. (would love to see them in even more levels!) Would you consider implementing a password system? And maybe an option to replay a stage after completion? It's a really fun game for speed running and that would make single segment attempts a bit...

Re: Frumpy

Hopefully fixed the issue with the end message. Updated the .zip file in the original download for v004.

Re: Frumpy

Took me about an hour and a half to play through, with the last screen (aptly named Kill Screen) taking about 45 minutes or so by itself. Pixel perfect timing and jumps aren't that prevalent in the other stages, but here it was just one after the other. Though I got pretty consistent up to the last...

Re: Frumpy

v004: Added 6 new screens, taking the total to 12 screens (not included the first tutorial screen). Added boxes which can be pushed around and jumped on to clear obstacles. Added umbrellas which can be collected and are helpful when falling from a great height. You no longer get to set a record time...

Re: "Very British" games

Hampstead is an obvious choice. I'd also say Frankie with it's terraced house setting and having to solve a whodunnit during the game.

Re: Frumpy

Just downloaded the new version of this game, i am using it on the ZX Vega. It works well and it is a good game. Thanks for the feedback and kind words! For those who've finished the current six room version, I've created 4 new rooms. I'd like to add another 2 before releasing a new version (doubli...

Re: C64 Standard Bitmap Mode (320 x 200)

I can't answer your questions Peter but I agree with your comments about C64 BASIC. Many moons ago, I used to get INPUT magazine and would have a peek at the listings for the other machines to see what was what. The listings for C64 programs seemed to mostly consist of printing random sequences of p...

Re: Frumpy

Completed version 003 from start to finish this morning. Got the record on all stages, though I had less than a second to spare on Room 7. Such a fun game, I thoroughly enjoyed this! Will there be any more rooms? :) Thanks for the feedback and the .rzx file. It was very interesting to see your appr...
