Woot 2019 Tape Magazine

Post by R-Tape » Mon Dec 23, 2019 8:45 am

Woot 2019 is here!

Image

Your best bet is to download the >>>>WOOT BUNDLE HERE<<<<, that's got everything together.

Magazine:
Woot info page
Desert Island SCREEN$
Jeremy ZXMan's speccy quiz

Games:
5 rings (If the tap file loads then it should run) (yes... that's the name)
Cheesy chase: Moritz and the mildewed moon
CHRISMAGIC DOT
CracFac
Jet Set Willy – 12 room minigame
Joe Blob
Sploids
Sprouty
The day before the day the Earth stood still

Truth be told, the scrollers feel very flat without AY music, but I don't think the rest of the mag misses it at all—quite the opposite. I'd recommend putting something appropriate on in the background and pretending. Sorreee.

Thanks to everyone that contributed, or just thought about it, or did nothing at all. Pass the sherry, blood clotting cream and mince pies—it's ZXMAS. Woot!

By the way - if you're playing Sprouty, play the version from this page rather than the bundle. It has a longer and more varied AY track. I must have mixed my files up somehow.

I haven't had chance to properly try the games until now.

Enjoying Sploids. Hi-Score 3175 so far. It seems the best strategy is to take every available position and only risk a colour match if you have a nearly clear board. Though, there are times that it feels the RND seed is destined to hand your arse to you no matter what you do. It looks like it's 200 points for a full match, and 40 for any other combination.

Don't forget, fire button uses up a coin to clear out one random panel if you're stuck. The game could have done with instructions as that particular function may be easily missed.
