uMia: Kryssy adventure games

Whether it's Mire Mare or a BASIC tape you found in the attic, it needs to be preserved digitally. Post here and experts can help to do so.

Double posting. R-Tape, I hope you'll notice that
I added "Nostalgie" after looking through Epsilon's page on that Russian site, I should have waited until you gave more info before I gave it an ID. Any screenshots & info you can give (either by email or in the old/new game thread) would be splendid.
And here are game images and screenshots for Nostalgie and another game from Alexei - Garden Zone.
I saved all games from Nostalgie as snapshots. Maybe it would be a good idea to make separate entries for each of them? Please decide.

For Garden Zone I added autobooting to .trd image

Thanks Ralf, I agree they should have separate IDs.

Even his earliest efforts are excellent.

Alexei has commented that these were originally written for the "Юнга" and ported to the Speccy. I want to include this as a comment, does anyone know the best way to describe this in English? Jung or Yung? What will people recognise?

Jung or Yung? What will people recognise?
I suppose this computer was completely unknown beyond Russian speaking world so you won't find how it is called in English anywhere.

I would go with Yunga. This way it is sounds like the Russian word which begins like in "yummy" and not like in "jungle".

On the other hand I checked and "Юнга" is a common world and means a "young sailor". It comes from German "Junge" - a boy:

If will be allright it you go both with Yunga and Junga I guess.

Cheers, it seems this computer has no Wiki page or anything to link to (?)

They write here that Yunga is a rare clone of better known computer called Specialist:

And this Specialist has a Wikipedia page, even in English:

I have some good news, Pavel 8-)

I spent today some time with Kryssy. I cheated a bit - examined texts in the game and at one moment even used debugger. But here is the result - the first part is completed !

I'll check the next parts but don't know if they will be easier or harder to complete.
Very nice!

Can you please translate the names of these objects?

Can you please translate the names of these objects?
Sure!

(By the way, expect recording of Kryssy 2 later today :) )

1. Piece of cheese
2. Rope ladder
3. Soft shoes
(Exact translation: felt shoes https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Felt You need to have both these shoes and shoelaces to pass silently and safely under
a crusher at one of first screens)
4. Little empty cauldron
5. Shoelaces
6. Iron staple
7. Magic crystal (rather useless but can be exanged like any object for cheese at mouse trap, taking cheese without item exchange means death)
8. Crust (piece of bread)
9. Bottle of milk
10. Office stamp
11. Small key
12. Knife
13. Big scroll (of paper)
14. Camphor oil (or something like that ;) )

At one moment there is a very weird puzzle that most people wouldnt create even after drugs ;) You have a scroll of paper. You use a stamp to print a door on this scroll. Then you use a knife to cut through scroll and open the door this way. Then you you can go through this door (by using the item) and teleport to another location ;) It can be done at any place

Isn't 15 - Ancient Potion?

(edit - 14 > 15 sorry I meant 'the last one')

I don't understand the second puzzle, why does having the boots and shoelaces stop you getting crushed?!

Thanks R-Tape, I missed the last item.

...
14. Camphor oil
15. Ancient potion

By the way, the game story goes something like that:

Ther was a great and happy civilisation of mouse and rats. But one day the Evil God (never seen in the game) decided to destroy it (probably just for fun and out of boredom ;) ) He build a machine of time and send most mice through it in unknown direction. Kryssy is one of the few survivors and must destroy the machine (seen in final location).

Not the best story probably, but let's be honest, Dizzy stores about evil wizard Zak constantly harassing Dizzy and his friends aren't much better and deeper ;)
