Unknown discovered games from Romania

Post by Ralf » Fri Dec 01, 2017 8:35 pm

Another news from Spectrum games world that some of you maybe missed.

Some weeks ago a very interesting post on Facebook appeared but as I know it went unnoticed on old WOS and we didn't have Spectrum Computing yet.

Out of the blue some helpful man (sorry, I forgot your name, friend) uploaded 3 full casettes of previously unknown games from Romania

Some screenshots:

and the download:
https://www.sendspace.com/file/z4fsb6

The look really decent. Play much worse unfortunately (try them). But if I was the author then I would be still very proud :)

Admins, would you be interested in adding them to the database?

Sendspace is getting worse, when it finally lets me download my PC blocks it.

^^I'll look forward to seeing these on the site then. They do look great, I'm guessing they all have character based movement?

I have taken the liberty of putting the download onto my Dropbox. This should be easier to access than Sendspace until we can get them on the site.

Thanks to @Ralf for letting us know about these.

Oh those are the games I mentioned in a post in WoS some weeks ago! I know the guy in Facebook, and he said months ago that he had recovered some games from his country, Romania, but since WoS was sooo out, I had lost my interest then.

Thanks for recovering them, Ralf!

I have just done a Google translate of one of the titles and I'm not sure it's appropriate....

Great!

If you check the download they are on 3 cassettes. So in the database they would be compilations. Does ZXDB already support compilations?

I could actually volunteer to create proper info with titles, years, genres and so on. But what structure should it have? Do we have some template for enterning new games data?

I'm picking my way through these and while some of them are howlers, all show promise and are great to browse through. There's some great beeper music, I think from bespoke code.

I'd like to see Robotank with the playability issues removed (keypresses, unfair reaction times).

I couldn't get it to load but it did manage to fill the screen with a giant yellow penis! :o
