Several uMIA games from a Spanish website

Post by Neil Parsons » Sun Jul 07, 2019 8:25 pm

Some people of this forum may know of a site called El Trastero Del Spectrum which is a port to many ZX Spectrum stuff for free download. Every time, his webmaster adds some new stuff to this web for their preservation: books, manuals... and ZX Spectrum software, including uMIA recovered from old tapes, disks or microdrives. Mostly thanks to users and Spectrum community members in Spain.

In one of his last updates, Jose Manuel (Trastero's site owner) told that an user called AleZX had submitted some unreleased material from the past, between games and utilities, in this page. Unless uncredited between explanations of each program, these ones were partially developed by Cobra's Arc author: Luis Mezquita Raya.

- La Moto (action arcade made in BASIC and machine code)
- Venusian Invaders (a full machine-code videoadventure game, in an Atic Atac style)
- Antartida (Spanish text adventure)
- SuperCalco (a tape-tape copier)
- F.I.A.O. (a database tool. Useful to catalogue your own videogames collection in tape)

All uMIA, after checking Infoseek at WOS and SC database.

Cheers Neil, this has already been announced, and Ralf kindly collated stuff for us to add in the next update.
