Re: Dizzy Scripting Engine - TRD

It may be doable but it would mean rewriting the loader, and replacing the TR-DOS CALLs with appropriate cassette loading ones. I'm also not sure whether anything gets loaded during gameplay or if it's all done before the game starts.

Re: 13 new games and an wonderful project

The games are pretty nice. The falling distance is quite unforgiving for most of them, but it makes for some interesting level design. Invisible platforms seem to feature a lot as well. Are all of the games fully completeable? In 'Timothy's Travels', I became stuck at the top of a ladder and couldn'...

Re: Little bugs in the database 2

Quadrax is another game that's marked as turn-based multiplayer, when it's actually simultaneous.

Re: uMIA: Smoog

By the way, I checked both disk versions of the game and they were identical. But I don't know if they were both obtained from the tape or if one was based on the other. The loading screen is probably legit. The handwriting is part of the game itself, and I doubt that it was added on later. It looks...

Re: Boom & Popcorn

They're both BASIC games, so you can just break into them and look at the keys. For Popcorn:

1: select tune 1
2: select tune 2
Z: move paddle left
X: move paddle right

The boot screen is unrelated to the game itself, it's just there to make the game easier to start.

Re: ZX Spectrum games that appeared on other platforms

They have an API. But it seems like normal people aren't allowed to use it.

Re: Forgot the name of an underwater game

It wouldn't happen to be this game, would it?

"Fully compatible with all Spectrums"? So 16K Spectrums don't count then? ;)

Re: The best modern Speccy game beginning with C: vote

I voted for Castlevania. I remember when it originally came out and I was blown away by the level of quality. The graphics are some of the nicest I've seen in any Spectrum game, and the music is fantastic too. In fact this game directly inspired my interest in the AY with its downloadable soundtrack...
