Re: Which coin-op classics still need a good Speccy version?

Great topic! Two that instantly spring to mind are Congo Bongo and Up n Down, both by Sega. Both were supposed to be released by US Gold and were advertised at the same time as Spy Hunter, Zaxxon and Buck Rogers but were never released. Although they were released on the c64 and they’re great games,...

Re: Kong vs Donkey Kong

The official Donkey Kong is much nicer to look at, but it seems more unfair - certainly compared to the arcade game - when avoiding the barrels. The music and sound FX also seem very slow, despite the game itself playing quite fast, making it sound like the person making the music was drunk at the t...

Re: Kong vs Donkey Kong

Stuart Campbell just posted a request on WoS for a hack of Donkey Kong with better coloured sprites. They managed to do it, but unfortunately the download link seems to have gone.

Does anyone have a copy of the 128k version of the hacked game?

Re: ZX Recoloring project

These look great, thanks for doing these! Interesting choice with Tomcat, a couple of other similar games that could really benefit from coloured bullets are Slap Fight, Flying Shark and maybe even Uridium. Slap Fight in particular was a nightmare at the time, despite it being a decent conversion th...

Re: The best Speccy game by Bulldog Software: vote

You've got the wrong screenshot for Spore! It wasn't a text adventure, but a rather spiffy shoot em up. Well, on the C64 it was. It was a bit rubbish on the Spectrum.

Re: Head over Heels back on Steam

Hmm? Doesn't it contradict the idea that "he's fine with people using Horace and other IPs he owns, except if they’re sold commercially that the company makes a donation to charity instead of the license fee" ? Apparently this person and her assistant were also involved in making and selling soft t...

Re: Bruce Lee RX

This is great! It almost reminds if the Americana re-release was an updated version, kind of like the Sorcery+ re-release where the game received graphical updates.

Re: The best Speccy game by Mastertronic's brands: discussion

That's curious, but of all these huge lot of games, I only played Speed King 2 back in the day. Only thanks to Internet I could know the Finders Keepers saga or a interesting and cool darts game that is 180 (great 128K music). Or others like Feud, Agent X, Kane, Amaurote, ... There's no other compa...

Re: Head over Heels back on Steam

It's also sad that one of the "good guys" when it come to IP I think we’ll have to agree to disagree here. *shrug* I guess we will have to agree to disagree! :D He has stated he is more than happy with any IP he owns can be used, as long as his company is credited and if it's a commercial release, ...

Re: Head over Heels back on Steam

I think the overreaction to this is the thing that annoys me. He got in touch with YouTube because he was unhappy how his IP was being used. It wasn't because he owns the IP and doesn't want anyone to use it or he wanted them taken down for commercial reasons. He was unhappy how it was being used in...
