Rex was so amazing, felt like next-gen Spectrum game at the time. Thanks for reminding me of its name, now I see I have confused it with Myth.
General software. From trouble with the Banyan Tree to OCP Art Studio, post any general software chat here. Could include game challenges...
Free Climbing, a Spanish rock climbing game.
I didn't realise the phrase "free" was coined in this context so long ago, I only learned of it when Alex Honnold scaled El Capitan in 2017*. These days, you'd be forgiven for thinking that being a rock-climber is bleedin' compulsory—I feel like a conscientious objector at work! I never got into it, and unfortunately my skills on a real wall are about as good as mine in this game. It's not clear to me what makes you fall yet. Still, it's surprisingly fun to play and make progress up the wall.
Keys OP=arms, ZX=legs, M=climb up.
It's a really interesting idea. A quick google shows that rock climbing games are not an unexplored genre. There could be some interesting ideas for new Speccy games though.
(btw I know this game needs a running screenshot; just taken one :–)))
*ah hold on; free climbing is not what I thought it was: free climbing is climbing without any artificial aids like ladders or bolts in the rockface, it can still be with a rope for safety (as the games inlay shows), free solo is free climbing without artificial aids and without a safety option. The mad bastards.
Yeah. I did that at the uni. Gets fun after a while in a specially equipped gym. Then you get to climb real rocks and your overconfidence can get the better of you. I got lucky and . . . well, I’m typing this post, aren’t I? But dang it, that moment you realize you can’t go up, you can’t climb down, no one’s spotting you, and there’s a good sixty feet between you and the solid-rick ground below.
Ah, youth . . .
Haha, that's true. It's one of my english 'canned' phrases I use it as a robot (but it's true, I've never heard of them! )WIWC wrote: ↑Thu May 07, 2020 6:36 pmYou say it every single time.
