Do you know how many ......... appear in ZX Spectrum games?

Post by tobobobo » Mon Feb 24, 2020 5:27 pm

Hello all.

I haven't posted here for a couple of years, but thought I'd just let you know about a wee project I've put together.

If, like me, you have some unexpected time on your hands and have always wondered how many bookcases/bookshelves appeared in Speccy games, then just look out for the #ZXBookcases hashtag on Twitter.

Here's a sneak-peek at number 32. Do you know the game?

It really is as thrilling as it sounds.

I'd have guessed Pyjamarama too, possibly Dynamite Dan ?

I don't have anything cool to put here, so i'll just be off now to see a priest with yeast stuck between his teeth and his friend called Keith who's a hairpiece thief...

what we need to do is feed snapshots or TZX images into an AI that have known bookcases/books as training data, then let it loose on the TZXVault.

This one's bothering me. It's very close to Underwurlde, but I can't see it anywhere in the map.

Nah, a few of us just need the chance to retire early and become oracles of the archive. Bidet on a blue background? This game. Yerba mate cup on a bench? That one.
