Re: MIA: Double Dealer

Looks like it is this one: https://spectrumcomputing.co.uk/index.php?cat=96&id=11662 In such case it is a rare MIA indeed :) Which is a bit weird as it look rather professionally published. Nowadays MIAs are mostly stuff made by some boys, sold in 20 copies and having a hand drawn inlay. Anyway than...

Re: The Curse of Trasmoz

Very nice but I would adjust a thing or two:

Re: Karnov and its great use of colour

...and then decided to chuck in the towel altogether in 2018: Artem Orlov/Oleg Origin is a bit mysterious person And you can't be really 100% sure what true about him and what's fake. Some people even claimed that he doesn't exist, that his games were a project of several people. But I believe he e...

Re: "Nave" at last recovered... :)

The portuguese Spectrum preservation is on fire, congratulations and thanks for sharing them Exactly! I remember I wrote a few years ago a post saying that Portugal is missing a proper Zx Spectrum preservation team that would deal with preserving old software like it happens in UK or Spain. Now I c...

Re: "Nave" at last recovered... :)

Hum... How can I do that?

Re: "Nave" at last recovered... :)

Great discovery! It's this title: https://spectrumcomputing.co.uk/index.php?cat=96&id=27518 The comment says "The tzx is incomplete - the game is missing its level and is thus unplayable." I guess it will have to be corrected ;) A hint: please create a tape image cotaining main game block and all th...

Re: MIA: Spraeng Skolen

By law, all Danish media produced — books, tv, movies, music, etc. — must have a copy stored in the Royal Danish Library. I recall in Poland we have something similar, when you publish a book or magazine you have to send a copy to the National Library. Unfortunately it doesn't apply to computer pro...

Re: Karnov and its great use of colour

Shadow Warriors are also made in a similar style: https://spectrumcomputing.co.uk/pub/sinclair/screens/in-game/s/ShadowWarriors.gif https://spectrumcomputing.co.uk/index.php?cat=96&id=4428 The gameplay is so-so but it looks great and is very different from monochrome or mostly monochrome games. Actu...

Re: Tetris Championship Edition

* show next piece
Res, but maybe a selectable option so people may choose to use it or not.
Also make some great loading screen ;)

BY the way, it seems very polished.
