Re: ZX Dev Conversions

I will also say that if a game is for a 16K or 48K Spectrum it should be judged on that machine, not criticised for not using 128K features. It is really clear in the rules if you take a look: "-The categories for the votation will be: 1)Graphics/Visuals 2)Sound/Music 3)Playability/Addictiviness 4)...

Re: ZX Dev Conversions

I invited many people, and made it public in WoS, Tweeter, and even Spectrum Facebook groups with near 10.000 members and where 90% of the people are british, and nobody looked excited about it, so... :( I have the feeling that they prefer playing Manic Miner over and over again than paying attenti...

Re: ZX Dev Conversions

Or talking in WOS Chit-Chat forum about what they eat for dinner ;) Yes, there are guys who behave like they were hibernated in an ice cube for 30 years and only woken up yesterday. The can talk about Manic Miner or Jet Set Willy forever, remember that in November 1986 there was an arcticle in Cras...

Re: Q*Box, by ThePope (3D game with AGD)

Sergio, the author of the game, just told me he has corrected the bug in the 48K version, so now should be ok. The download is in the same link ;) Can you please ask if he's the same Sergio Llata that co-authored this game? https://spectrumcomputing.co.uk/index.php?cat=96&id=16890 It is the same Se...

Re: Q*Box, by ThePope (3D game with AGD)

This is very impressive. Shows you can have a good isometric game without a fancy, slow, isometric engine. The collision is not technically correct but it's not a problem. I would have thought the AGD sprite XOR would make this setting look horribly messy, but crafty sprite design mostly gets aroun...

Re: ZX Dev Conversions

That's a shame, don't feel too disheartened though as there are more games every year in the contest. Does nobody here fancy it? You need to make a tiny donation in order to be a judge, but in return you get the power to crush another person's dreams. And you can even donate 10 cents and become a j...

Re: ZX Dev Conversions

The judges look like good chaps, but as I say over there, it would be good to get a more international panel to reflect the entries. I invited many people, and made it public in WoS, Tweeter, and even Spectrum Facebook groups with near 10.000 members and where 90% of the people are british, and nob...
