Below is my personalised version of the Quahappy screen.

I thought of "Another world" for a second there.

What if... Flashback was released on the ZX Spectrum? This is my mock-up screen. :D

I agree with Ralf about the protagonist (perhaps all black pixels, refined and a bit smaller - more like Target Renegade) but the rest is great. I'm sure you have a huge list of requests but in a similar vein I'd love to see a mockup of Future Wars, the player would be nearly the same :D

In fact I'd love to see the full Future Wars game on the Speccy!

Future Wars is on my list. ;)

For the observant amongst you, you'll notice that Conrad is no longer is colour but in black instead (image is linked to ZX Art website) to emulate an actual ZX Spectrum sprite. Now all we need is to see him in motion! I hope this mock-up screen version meets approval. :D

Good. I think the coloured one from earier today was terrible. This is much better :)

Great improvement for the hero!

And now it looks like a real Spectrum game, not a fake ;) Colourful sprites may look fancy for a layman but if you know Spectrum a little bit
you realize that in many cases it wouldn't work well in an actual game when everything is moving.

I also see similarities with the intro screen in Rocky Horror Show, with the 'Enter at your Own Risk' message.

I think the inspiration came from the cover of an old DOS game called 'The Legacy' :)
