Re: TIKI TACA

I liked Sabre Wulf so much, but programing my game, Ive noticed that Atic Atac is a very good game. Great! This looks really amazing. And yes, Atic Atac looks like a simple game, but has so many small details here and there that ultimately (no pun intended) can be a more complex game in terms of de...

Re: New Upload & Edit Facility

Re: Loading Programs from Compilations?

FUSE also keeps the tape counter at the same position when you reset the machine. So you can load one program, reset, then LOAD "" the next one.

Re: Site Updates

BTW, just added Droid Buster by Ariel Endaraues (Jan 2019). Someone pointed out it was missing from the ZXDB.

Re: Type-in games: unofficial translations, plagiarism and derivatives

Is there really enough of a difference between these programs for them all to have separate entries? Well, in this case perhaps no, because we don't have an author for the translated version and the title is close enough, but on other cases there are usually some kind of attribution and major chang...

Re: The games that never got released

There really isn't. No one from Rare has ever come forward and and said anything of the sort. Erm, but they did? Perhaps I'm missing something, but the cover art is out there, and Tim said that they produced a few sketches and ideas. To clarify, I'm not talking about actual code, so perhaps I'm str...

Re: Type-in games: unofficial translations, plagiarism and derivatives

Yes, it came with a booklet (every issue did). Just check (if you don't know it) the great Microhobby Forever web. Go down by the left frame till 'varios'. Click on it and you'll see the scanned booklets of every issue, among other stuff. OMG! Didn't noticed that! Excellent. So I assume this first ...

Re: The games that never got released

At the end of Underwurlde, the player can escape through three different exits. Each exit then names a different game in which Sabreman is to take part. The first two are Knight Lore and Pentagram. The third is Mire Mare. Despite numerous rumors otherwise, the game never got past the stage of being...

Re: Type-in games: unofficial translations, plagiarism and derivatives

Overall I think we can start adding comments to the games as needed, like "A spanish-translated version of..." or "A spanish-translated derivative of ..." in case the game has some major changes.
And for games we KNOW are officially or unofficially translated: "Unofficial Spanish translation of ...".
