I like the idea. How/when/where can we get hold of it?

Re: WILLY, 48k about a legend

Just bumping this post because I fear my question might've gotten lost under the embedded video... so, does anyone know anything more about this? I have no idea how or where I stumbled upon it, and can't find any more information about it anywhere -- and yet it clearly appears to be a plan to make ...

WILLY, 48k about a legend

Did someone post this on here recently?

Either way, I'm wondering if anyone has more info on it? It doesn't seem to Google well, and I have no idea how I stumbled upon it!

Sterling work, as always. I wonder if the blue wizard's ear (and possibly chin) could be a little more crooked, in order to avoid the little bit of blue clash there?

Re: New Game Maze Death Rally-X

I loved arcade Rally-X - and this interpretation is just awesome. Quite beyond what I expected, tbh. Within moments I'd forgotten I was playing on a Spectrum. Spectacular work.

The only 'criticism' I have is that the smoke is a tad hard to see: white on yellow isn't so easy on middle-aged eyes. 😉

Re: My Saturday night...

Neat. I'm showing my ignorance here, but what are you playing on? I can see curved edges suggesting a CRT telly, does that mean a real 16bit (or is it MAME)? (Playing Splat! on my +2) I was playing original Out Run in a sit-down hydraulic cab at Arcade Club in Manchester. The most awesome place in ...
