Re: Coming soon: SOPHIA II

Pretty stuff Allessandro! You have a talent of making AGD games that don't look AGD at all, and believe me, it's a compliment ;) Thank you Ralf! In fact I try to make them that way :lol: The only thing, I'm not so sure about is music. Yes, I know it's a classical piece but after 5 mnutes of playing...

Coming soon: SOPHIA II

Hello everybody! Last year, among other things (real life etc.), I was working to a new title. Then I saw some very interesting things going on in the ZX-Dev competition , and I wondered, "Why not?" Actually, in the past I thought about an enhanced remake of one of the very first games I played on t...

Re: Mister Kung Fu: A new Kung Fu Master game in progress!

Finally, the old and venerable Irem coin-op gets a proper Spectrum conversion after the feeble Ocean effort - 33 years later! Release V1.1 is now available: - High Score display - Adjusted Enemy flow on 1st level - slightly slowed down kick so it’s dangerous for slightly longer / easier to time - fi...

Re: Quadron, a uMIA from 1988... that you can buy now!!

I decided to encourage the developer (his games were among the first I ever played on the Spectrum, 35 years ago!) and purchased the game. Looks and plays quite nice, it's simple enough to grasp but not shallow, there are several nice touches in both appearance and gameplay, like the different weapo...

Re: Request: SC users score

To be honest I am not a fan of users' score, on WOS there have been cases of plain abuses of it, with people indiscriminately giving 1's or 10's just to make the average score go down or up. I believe it would be better to link each game to the Spectrum 2.0 database, so that everybody can have a say...

Re: GLUF

Hi Denis,

another lovely creation! Simple and effective, and very well presented in both visual and sound, as your previous titles.

And a very big thank you for using my SetoLOAD turbo scheme :D

Re: Out Run - where the Spectrum fell short

I think you should visit a recent poll about this game to see how much love we have about it... ;) I think that a simple this/that poll is not so much representative of people's opinions. Quite a few of those who explained their vote (including myself) stated that although they preferred Enduro Rac...
