Re: Stormfinch - Pentagon version

As I understand it, .scl format is very, very similar to .trd. They both represent tr-dos disks. Just .scl is compressed while .trd is not compressed. You can convert .scl to .trd with some existing tools and it always work, unlike converting .tzx to .tap for example. No, it's not that. If you conv...

Alessandro, maybe you miss the story about Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles? ;)
Of course not :) I already knew it. But it was, as you pointed out, a Turtles-related matter, which only affected our beloved box of wonders because a couple of licensed games were made for it. And quite good, too ;)

Sophia (Ale, happy with this as a comment?)
Well, since when I presented the game, I openly declared that Sophia was inspired by Cybernoid - as well as from Equinox and Druid - so I would say yes, of course ;)

Re: Ninja Gaiden Shadow Warriors

The spectrum is a UK computer and in that time period the word 'ninja' was not allowed. So can the game's authors please rename it to Hero Gaiden and change the title screen also...for decency's sake. Really? What about Ninja , Ninja Warriors , Dragon Ninja , Last Ninja II , Ninja Massacre , Ninja ...

Also in some obscure game called Kentilla
Obscure for you, maybe :P Kentilla was a well-known text adventure back in the day, written by Derek Brewster of Codename MAT I & II fame. I played it on the Spectrum as well as on the C64. Ah the good ol' days... 8-)

Re: WTF is it?

Do you mean the list in this thread? I agree and it's already there.

It's also already in the ZXDB spreadsheet and will appear on the site in the next update.
Sorry, I didn't notice it before and I thought it was not going to be added. Thank you! :D
