Two new games from Russia:

Lost In the Worlds

Game site
https://nihirash.itch.io/lost-in-worlds

and thread on Russian forum if anybody interested:
http://zx-pk.ru/threads/29246-moya-mini ... words.html

Feels like Manic Miner clone, yet the difficulty is even more hardcore than the original ;)

Written with PGD designer (yes, PGD and not AGD ;) )

Rogue

Download in the thread at Russian forum:
http://zx-pk.ru/threads/29242-rogue.html

The game genre is, I would say, turn based strategy. You move your warrior through the maze and every your move means one move
of your enemies. You kill enemies,collect health, weapons and treasure and progress to next levels through exits.

First levels don't give any chalenge but maybe later it becomes a true game???

It seems like a Basic game with UGD graphics but for Basic game with UGD graphics it's quite polished in my opinion.

The author claims, it's not final version and that he wants to rewrite it but I'll share it here anyway as it's generally complete game.

Cheers.

Lost in Worlds is great, a very short, mad platformer. Also contains a couple of nods to the best platform game in the history of the Universe ;)

Infy lives: 35332,182

Can be completed quite easily without cheats, as long as you can pass level 2 :shock:

Looks like a new author to ZXDB (?). I've inputted him as "Shynni", @Ralf can you confirm that's correct?

Not really correct, @R-Tape
Transliteration is correct but he's not the author.
Игра сделана на основе NOMAM14_Basic_Tenliner_Contest, автор Jakub Debski.
which means: game inspired by NOMAM14_Basic_Tenliner_Contest, author Jakub Debski
So the author is Jakub Debski and while I don't know him, it's 100% Polish name.

Not sure about Basic Tenliner Contest but I believe it can be this thing below. In that case it was some competition for 8 BIt Atari and this game is a port from Atari:

EDIT: I would also adjust the author of Lost in Worlds. Pinny is his nickname on zx.pk.ru but on his own website he uses a nick Nihirash!

Guys, you got it all wrong )

The author of this particular game is Александр Шарихин (Alexander Sharihin). His nicknames are "pinny" and "Nihirash!". That's his twitter: https://twitter.com/nihirash

The original game (by Jakub Debski) was made in BASIC for some Atari compo. I did not manage to run it, but is looks not exactly like Alexander's game. So it's just inspiration.

And Shiny (Шынни, Дмитрий Крапивин, Dmitry Krapivin) is the other author - he made Rogue and Beams of Light.

If I search for Dmitry Krapivin under author it also brings up Bye, V3nom! by goblinish.

Are Dmitry Krapivin, Shiny, goblinish, g0blinish all the same person?

@michellekg , thanks!

And I would say yes, Shinny=Goblinish, he's a very well known and active member of Russian Spectrum community.
