Re: The best Speccy game by Beyond Software: discussion

There seems to be a theme developing here: a lot of Beyond games seem great in theory and have lots of great ideas, but somehow never quite live up to themselves in reality.

Re: The first entry! "Escape the Room"

Well, we have the first game of the competition: "Escape the Room" by Stephen Smith! You can see the full review here: https://connosoft.com/csscgc2020/reviews/001.html Thanks for the great review, probably funnier and more entertaining than the game! BTW, I've never actually heard of a Pentagon un...

Re: The screenshots look good, but it's a terrible game

The issue I always had with R-Type is that you need to be diligent with weapon power up collection to defeat the bosses, if you lose them, miss them or end up with the wrong ones you may as well restart the level. Couldn't agree more. I recently played it an Arcade club so it was on free-play, and ...

Re: Games for your family

The only time my dad went near a computer pre-2000 was to play Tomahawk once on the Speccy, back in the day. After it had loaded, he decided to use the joystick, so he plugged in the joystick interface... That was the end of that Spectrum, and the end of my dad's (already miniscule) interest in com...

Re: Spectrum games recreated in 3D

After watching the video, I'm thinking of a sort of first-person Sabre Wulf. It'd be amazing! Sabre Wulf wiouldn't be too hard, but the main obstacle is having images of the baddies (i.e. the sabre wulf or rhinos) front-facing, otherwise it looks like they are walking sideways as they come towards ...

I like this idea. I wonder if you could do a left to right side scroller in 3d maybe something like Green Beret?
Do you mean like Green Beret as an FPS?

Spectrum games recreated in 3D

I've just released my new game, called "Lost in the Game". Each level (there's only 4 at the moment) is a recreation of a Spectrum game but in 3D. Depending if there's enough interest, I'll be adding more games. Requests welcome. :) https://stephensmith.itch.io/lost-in-the-game https://www.youtube.c...

Re: What are your current ZX Spectrum projects/games that you are working on?

I don't know if it qualifies since I'm not writing a game for the Speccy, but instead recreating old games in 3D. The intention is to have one big game, with each level being a different Speccy game. So far I have about 5 levels created. Here's a very short video of the Gulpman level:- https://www.y...
