Re: Arcade Game Designer

Recently discovered that Blimpgeddon & OctuKitty when played on ULAplus hardware has incorrect colours. When making these games the first thing I did was change ULAplus palette to look like standard palette, but the emulator (ZXSpin) I used wasn't really showing me correct colours. So if you've made...

Dizzy Scripting Engine - TRD

Don't think this has been posted yet.

Hello I'm UltraNarwhal, an indie dev for PC (Windows/Linux). I'm also creating smaller games for older systems, now that there are easy to use tools available (AGD/NESmaker/RedPill). My first release for PC is Project Hornwhale, out Q2 2019 (after several years working on it) https://youtu.be/dLt6kY...

Re: Licence to Kill

My easiest and most deliberately average game, it was mainly an experiment to see what I could do with AGDx in the short time I had. Look out for Blimpgeddon 3 late in 2019 which will have vastly more time spent on its development, also advances in AGDx should allow 80 screens in a single load and m...

Re: Beginner Question: Which Pixel Art Program do I use?

I use GIMP primarily, check and tweak animations in Aseprite and import to ZX-Paintbrush for use on Speccy.

Re: Octukitty (Ft. Octav1us Kitten)

Hello, thought I'd de-lurk. Thanks for playing my silly game.
The sprite is a mole holding a balloon with a string, I also forget the backstory for it :?
