Re: Beginners Adventure

Los Pajaros de Bangkok was a very good detective-sque text adventure but it only was released in Spanish.

Re: Rogue like for Zx Spectrum

How about The Oracle's Cave? I think that's like a Rogue game, procedurally generated and the map revealed as you go along, but side-on rather than top-down. One of the best and very underrated ZX Spectrum games. The only caveat is the map generation takes some time -no surprise here- but the game ...

Re: Mister Kung Fu: A new Kung Fu Master game in progress!

Just downloaded, played and it's amazing the quality of the game :o Yes, the ZX-Dev is indeed a nice incentive, but in the past ten years we are having a lot of excellent games made for fans and not from commercial companies. Don't get me wrong: Ocean, Dinamic, Hewson and others made great games, bu...
