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

Thanks for all the votes for LumASCII (I’m still taking that as joint-first 8-) )

See you all again when we get to the letter ‘S’!

Re: Awful graphics, but a brilliant game

Aye here's the main site . Denis made this thread here . It adds a few things about machine type. Thanks, but that’ll be a no then, as work and family life means that I simply can’t commit to producing something to a deadline. And besides, Melkhior’s Mansion is taking any spare time that I do get.

bobs, happy to see you here! I never heard of this game before, it's great! Is there any chance for you to participate in Your Game 6? :)
For that I’d need to know what Your Game 6 is... link? (Sorry, I don’t follow the retro scene closely)

To include a more modern game - LumASCII has to be noted, made out of the pure Sinclair ROM font. (It does look good when you see it play though.)

I *think* I’ll take this as a complement!

Re: ATTR Sprite demo (Sonic)

Very nice! I used the flash bit in splATTR to mask the data. Thanks. SplATTR was such a brilliant use of this art style., and clearly you'd made a very fast engine. I was super impressed with it when it was released ... In fact on your website you quote my review (that I wrote for RGCD) singing its...

I was just likely to use black in my drawing, and drawing on a hideous magenta backgr...

Re: The best modern Speccy game beginning with L: discussion

LumASCII . Proof that an game using the Spectrum's own font doesn't have to be crap! Scrolling shooter, a novel idea, well executed. Cassette only . That’s not entirely correct - you can now download it freely (athough donations are very much appreciated) from my Itch.io site using the link below: ...
