Game of the day...

General software. From trouble with the Banyan Tree to OCP Art Studio, post any general software chat here. Could include game challenges...

Interesting title screen effect, I wonder if it's meant to look something like the patterns in this Interlace demo.

Zig Zag by DK'Tronics.

An odd game, you have to drive around a 3D maze in pursuit of these weird alien thingies. The aim is to trap them in a corner so you can mercilessly blow them to pieces with your gun, causing the maze to expand and more aliens appearing. It's basically a reverse 3D Monster Maze.

I recommend playing this game with the Currah Speech System :D

The ZX-Dev remake of Alley Cat—Misifu la Gatita

It looks a bit rough round the edges at first glance, but it's very addictive!

Great game that I couldn't play it back in the day.

This is the first Spectrum game I've played on a emulator ('Spectrum' by Pedro Gimeno for DOS) back in 1993. Cool.

The more I played, the more I like it.

My highest score is still only 80 points... after realizing that I not only must avoid walls and certain objects & enemies while falling off but also get the balloons (or are they flying jellyfishes?)

:oops:
