Do you know how many ......... appear in ZX Spectrum games?

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

I also thought of Herbert's Dummy Run at first, but I don't think it is.

Was thinking maybe King's Keep or Witches Cauldron but I checked the maps and it's neither of those.

There's some nice detail on the graphic so I'm guessing it's a decent game.

Any clues? Arcade adventure? Graphic from a text adventure?

I tried to google by image but it turns out that picture recognition network is definitely not trained on Spectrum in-game screens.

Yeah, if you look at the different colours used and thus the number of attribute squares, it's got to be quite large on the screen... :?

I must be mad, but I spent two whole lunchtimes trawling the archive and maps for this. I got some nice surprises: MASK has a bookshelf in it, and "The happiest days of your life" is a bibliophile's wet dream. Loads of things come close, but nothing I saw exactly matches the pic.

As Morkin and Firefox say, it's must be a decent game with big sprites (unless it's a text adv), but without clues, I'll have to give up on this one.

Didn't know that was possible!
