Re: New forum game -- Spectrum graphics in the real world?

I added the arcade version of this to my RetroPie setup and was quite taken aback when I gave it a try recently! :shock: If you've ever wondered why the playing area sometimes seems quite small and there are large areas of brick wall background - well, let's just say, on the arcade original (unless...

Re: Pacman RX WIP

This is actually my fifth 'golden age' arcade conversion… Forgive my ignorance. Many of your previous games don't seem to have had a lot of exposure, which is a shame. The audio in your game is really fantastic and probably what stands out the most to me. Your "eat ghost" noise is even cl...

Re: Pacman RX WIP

Incredible, this is so good! After all these decades of (great) Spectrum Pac-man games, it finally feels like the definitive version has arrived. Makes me wonder if you might tackle some other classic titles.

Nice nostalgic thread! :-) Sounds like some of you had fantastic introductory game packs to the Spectrum, especially Pete Prodge! Alas, my game pack was the Christmas 1986 Dixons Spectrum +2 bundle featuring ten mostly incredibly bland games… Mr Micro software: https://i.postimg.cc/9X9MzGcm/Untitled...

Rick Dangerous . https://spectrumcomputing.co.uk/SCRtoImage.php?SCR=/conv_scr/r/RickDangerous.scr&border=0 There are some visibility issues and poor colour choices—this is a game that would benefit from the @Ralf treatment. Personally I've always really loved the colours in Rick Dangerous.

I can confirm that some "girls" in Speccy industry were not real . A wise man named Morpheus once said: "What If I told you everything you knew was a lie?" Though it turns out Morpheus never actually said this line, so everything you thought you knew was a lie. Plus Morpheus nev...
