What are your current Spectrum projects?

Post by Ivanzx » Fri Dec 08, 2017 5:20 pm

Are you working in any new game for the Spectrum? A piece of Hardware? Anything Spectrum-related goes ;)


We want to see them! :)

I'm still working on improving a Spectrum-related project called ZXDB. Does it count? :)

I recently completed a disassembly of Hungry Horace:

https://skoolkid.github.io/hungryhorace/ (hexadecimal)

I'm adding Pokes, Bugs and Trivia pages to it now, and was going to wait until they were done before announcing anything here, but since you asked so nicely... :)

Interesting! Was it made totally in assembler?

Having another go at the improbably long titled The Indescribable Adventures of Bertrand Bubblethwaite: Bertrand and the Twisted Support. :D
It's currently a multicolour vertically-scrolling platform rendering routine, and that's about it. Some sprite routines shall follow shortly.

Hah! Not all at once and only in-between paid work - I'm working on at least 2 books next year. But you'll at least see the 1st 2 near the beginning of 2018.

It's 100% machine code, yes. Not exactly one of the best examples of the art of assembly language programming on the Spectrum - in part because it's an early title, I suspect - but it gets the job done.
