Re: Game of the day...

Strider. Haven't reached level 2 yet, but I'm enjoying the acrobatics.

Re: Little bugs in the database

It's from a compilation, not a re-release. Right now, there's no way to differentiate screens from compilations, in either ZXDB or WoS. I will need more time to consider the best solution to this issue... If it's not easy to prioritise them, couldn't the compilation screen be removed entirely? The ...

BTW I expect the swordsman figure is copied from somewhere, too. It looks familiar.
It's a default warrior stance, but I'm sure I've seen the source somewhere too. It's not a million miles away from Camelot Warriors, does anyone know the source for that?

Re: Atic-Atac Isometric Version

I have actually been considering getting a loft conversion. If I found a joiner called Attic Attack, or something like that, I'd sign them up in a second.

Re: The best classic Speccy game beginning with S: vote

Returning to the S, I'm surprised by Saboteur poor performance. It was my second choice. There's so much quality here, it feels like a second round of votes. They should have called it Ninja Commando. Not only would it have sold better, as everyone was ninja-crazy in the 80s, it would have pissed a...

Re: Atic-Atac Isometric Version

Got it. You can have this for nothing:

Bedroom Bellicosity.

(You could go with Bedroom Bellicosity 3D, but it loses some of its power.)

Re: Atic-Atac Isometric Version

Great news; pleasantly surprised. So, no changes to the gameplay, content and graphics required other than coming up with a ridiculously badly punned title. I'm afraid this one is already half taken. https://spectrumcomputing.co.uk/SCRtoImage.php?SCR=/zxdb/sinclair/entries/0031373/0031373-run-1.scr

Re: The best classic Speccy game beginning with S: vote

Also, the way it was developed is pretty insane as well. Fixed. I'm referring to David writing the machine code on paper and Helen inputting it, but yep—it's still impressive :mrgreen: It's interesting that the graphics were done by a friend with a background in graphic design, but no familiarity w...

Re: The best classic Speccy game beginning with S: vote

Another fine list, replete with classics. These stand out to me: Stormlord Spellbound Starquake Splat Sir Lancelot Shinobi Sabre Wulf And especially Saboteur . I spent ages playing this BITD, largely because they shunned the usual tradition of making it impossibly difficult from the off. That said, ...
