Atic-Atac Isometric Version

People are still making stuff for the Sinclair related machines. Tell us about new games and other software that runs on the Spectrum, ZX80/ZX81, Pentagon and Next.

I think possibly not quite up to the speed of the remake, however, I think if the routines were all optimised well and the sprite routines unrolled, then a decent speed can be achieved. There are no nasties in the video yet, just the sparkly throwy thing that bounces around. No objects in the rooms can be physically moved, and theres no food items either, so all that would have to be considered.

Perhaps if we ask Craig nicely he'll redesign everything to suit 256 pixel width ;)

Well, you have Bobby Bearing (https://spectrumcomputing.co.uk/index.php?cat=96&id=606), smaller graphics, but pretty fast, and wonderful physics.

Bobby Bearing is my absolute favorite isometric game, EVER!

Unfortunately though it slows down rather a lot with more than just Bobby in the room :?

This has got me thinking if there were many fast moving iso games on the Speccy.

Spindizzy was pretty fast if you errm..went fast.
