Re: Interesting game maps?

Cauldron II's map is my favourite, it's absolutely huge and each room is unique, the castle is clearly resembling the Palace logo as well. https://maps.speccy.cz/maps/Cauldron2.png

Edit: got sniped. :lol:

Re: Beat 'em up competition

Nice idea! It will be interesting to see if there'll be an attempt at a 1 on 1 fighter with modern staples like combos, punishments, zoning etc. Could be a real challenge with only one fire button, although there are a handful of really great fighting games on gameboy that only uses 2 buttons, I gue...

Re: Woot 2019 Tape Magazine

Trying to make it different. If the difference makes it significantly less fun to play I can change it. Having not played it for a long time and now looking at it with fresh eyes, it is probably too harsh. It's just kind of unfair as you can't avoid it. I think one of the reasons the original game ...

Re: Woot 2019 Tape Magazine

Woot! Great stuff! The ZXDB may want to mention that Sploids is inspired by Quartet/Assembloids . Had a quick go and found out that you can be dealt impossible parts, for an example, an upper-right part when all upper-right corners are already filled. Can't remember the original doing that (albeit I...

Re: The randomize of death

The Vectrex uses a different system. This type of CRT system is completely different to the way conventional CRT monitors and TVs work. With the Vectrex, the beams position is directly controlled by the program. So if your program gets things wrong, it could leave the beam in one position. This cou...

Re: The randomize of death

I bought a Vectrex, years ago, with the intent of doing some prods for it. It had a dodgy cartridge port and I couldn't be bothered to have it fixed so I sold it on. I remember reading some programmer's manual that said you could easily damage the machine if you loaded the wrong value in a certain r...

Re: 19 new games at Yandex competition!!!!

Here is a walkthrough video with the CD tracks running in the background. Nice music, but not quite appropriate for a fast-paced action game, rather for an adventure/role-play/strategy one. Reading the comment section for that video, Zotova states; it's not the full OST but a bonus track by Tiurula...
