I would have predicted that (International) Match Day would have flown into the lead, surprised to see it lagging behind a bit.

Re: Micro Challenge magazine...

Heh, I wouldn't have won the TV, either back then or today... :lol:

Maybe if they'd given a couple of examples I might have worked out what they were banging on about..

Anyway, better go, it's time for me to wander round Kweepa's house to watch something on the new telly...

Re: The Definitive Programmer’s Guide to Using the Floating Bus Trick on the ZX Spectrum

Nice article on something that's had me a bit perplexed when people have been talking about it.

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

Used to love Ikari Warriors, I was desperate to play it after playing the demo to death. On another day (or another letter) it would have clinched it for me... ...But I'm going for IK+ . I always loved the beat 'em ups, and this was the one I played more than any other, even Way of the Exploding Fis...

Looks like this 'i' list is going to pretty short compared to other letters.
Yeah, there are a few good games there but one of them stands out a bit for me so it won't be too tough a decision...

Re: In nihilum reverteris text game IN ENGLISH

I like the graphics style, and of course the music...

And cool story, I enjoyed reading it. Well written as well, I'd say probably worth the translation fee..!

Re: Development Environments

Here's my setup: Microsoft's ' Visual Studio Code ' for editing (it has a plug-in for Pasmo/Z80 highlighting which should also work for most assemblers). Pasmo for assembling. SpecEmu for debugging. BitBucket for source control. VS Code makes for an excellent Z80 editor, it's not just for modern la...

Re: Microhobby Cassette #5 #6 (July 1985)

Invasión amarilla ( yellow invasion ) https://spectrumcomputing.co.uk/pub/sinclair/screens/in-game/i/InvasionAmarilla.gif When I played it for this review, an alien crossed a wall of bricks and the message '5 Out of Screen 700:2' appeared. Even in the most epic battles this can happen. :lol:
