I played Dungeon Raiders a bit.

The idea is great. The graphics are good. But it still asks for improvement.

First thing is that it is a bit unfair. You have to protect some characters but you have no chance to protect them
if an enemy respawns just an inch from your character.

Then there is this annoying beeper sound all the time...

But it's always good to see such fresh, new ideas on Spectrum.

Plumbers don't wear ties:
http://idpixel.ru/games/plumbersdontweartieszx/

I believe it belongs to Crap Games Compo https://cgc.source.run/news but just to be sure I'll report it here. It seems to be a better quality than an average game from that compo.

I'm surprised that they have screenshots from that far into the game. The one who took them must have the patience of a saint to sit through it! :lol:

All software to-date

Currently working on ZX Adventure Designer, which lets one create point-and-click graphic adventures for a 48K Spectrum.

A new puzzle game Knights:
http://www.indieretronews.com/2018/03/k ... eVIfp.gbpl

Released in 2018 or still in 2017?

Anyway it's a puzzle game where you move a chess knight or knights according to the chess rules and you have to reach the destination fields.

Try it. You click first on the knight and later on the destination field. The first levels are easy but previous experience with chess certainly helps. In later levels some knights are already in destination places but you actually have to move them to complete the level.
