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.

We had discussed it very very briefly last year and again this weekend where I said I’d pencil in a start for next year. You would get highly stylised isometric graphics - Spectrum palette no colour clash, of course - if we went down that route, though ;)
Still, only after Melkhior’s Mansion is finished, released and I’ve had an extended break from pixels (as in, pretty much the rest of 2020!) will it ever get considered!

Feel like it would also suffer the Paperboy problem, where the actual game area ends up being very restrictive. I'd almost rather someone went the other way and made a top-down Paperboy.

The idea would be that you could switch the view to see more/get access to further parts of the play area.

I know Bob is on here so I hope he doesn’t mind, but for those not on Twitter I really feel everybody should see Bob’s latest progress on the 128K version of Melkhior’s Mansion. Absolutely amazing! Stunning work!

It seems it will be one of the greatest games of the year, definitely!

Off-topic: Now I'm wondering if we'd ever see isometric versions of other games: Back to Skool, Sim City...
