Re: The inevitable worst game ever thread

What was the best Spectrum football game? Emlyn Hughes International Soccer Agree, much better than the overrated (although still decent) Microprose Soccer. Talking about stinkers, yesterday I had a go at Hopper Copper , just to remember how appalling it was. A waste of tape, not even worth £1.99 (...

Re: Little bugs in the database

These two entries refer to the same title and therefore should be merged into one: https://spectrumcomputing.co.uk/index.php?cat=96&id=27540 https://spectrumcomputing.co.uk/index.php?cat=96&id=26902 The only noticeable difference seems to be the text, which is almost completely written in capital le...

Re: Arcade Game Designer

Thank you Jonathan :D

I also noticed you dropped the FADE command, do you think you will reinstate it?

If I do not use any AY sound effects, can I delete the definitions from the source code, those that appear at the bottom of the .ASM file, to make the final game code shorter?

Re: .TRD and .SCL minimum model

Are there examples of .TRD/.SCL that were created with the 48K/128K Spectrum in mind? All of my games available in such formats - Al's Double Bill, Funky Fungus, Doom Pit, Seto Taisho Vs Yokai, Seto Taisho To Kazan, Sophia - were designed to be compatible with standard Spectrums equipped with the D...

Re: Arcade Game Designer

Hi Jonathan, is it possible with the new AGD to add calls to external code like in the traditional AGD, through a CALL instruction strategically inserted in the scripts as ASM 205 etc.? I did that in several of my games in order to add custom sound/visual effects. I noticed in fact that after import...

Re: The inevitable worst game ever thread

Hello everyone. I would like to begin by adding an obvious game to this list: Super Soccer by Imagine. Awful Awful Awful Awful Awful. Hi Spector. Super Soccer was indeed horrible, but wait until you try Peter Beardsley's International Football. Or Gazza's Super Soccer :x Gazza II , on the other han...
