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...

Something tells me you like this game!

I never really got into it, found it hectic in an unfair way. Why do you like it so much?

I liked it. Was mesmerized by it, in fact. Tough as nails, but definitely has the “one-more-try” factor to it.

No. He keeps posting the same message. Worrying.

ARE YOU OK, MATE?

Perhaps it's a riddle, he's trying to tell us something.

It's an anagram of 'thrifty rummy bozos'.

But what does it mean?...

I liked Zythum. It's really playable and actually not that hard.
I'm not any kind of a great player but could reach in the 80s without any pokes the 4th last level.
And 15 years later I finally completed it on emulator, with a litlle help of snapshots ;)

You know very well what it means.

Zythum by Mirrorsoft is not difficult. It's playable.

I don't know/don't remember how mr Daley Thompson jumps, but in Zythum you jump diagonally and then you sort of glide down, again diagonally.
You can control the length of your jump by controlling its height. The higher, the longer. Just keep pressed the jump button until you think you're high enough to glide to the spot you intend to land on. You have to mentally visualize the trajectory.

This is Zythum by Mirrorsoft.

I hate sex.

Just had a look and Zythum, by Mirrorsoft is missing English .txt instructions in case anyone has them.
