Re: "Patrulha Espacial" Patch for 50Hz ZX81

When I tried "Patrulha Espacial" and "Missão Andrômeda" I was surprised to hear my Chroma Interface-equipped ZX81 play music over the TV! I don't have any sound equipment, so that was like when your cat suddenly starts talking to you... Activate "Beeper Sound" in the EightyOne emulator, then you wil...

Re: Work in progress : 1K hires Stupid Cupid

The hearts will then drop from second line down and on top moving horizontally. I think it would be better if you would make the vertical ones pause for some time to allow the player to catch his breath again. This would be some sort of a bonus round where the player can score extra points but cann...

So what can be added in the remaining 352 bytes?
Nice game! The shooting is a little monotonous, maybe you could add a horizontally flying heart that sometimes appears on the top of the screen (instead of the falling hearts), just like the saucer in Space Invaders?

Re: New game - BiggOil

I was thinking about trying to write an "Anteater" game, but I'm glad that you did it first. All those little details - the oil company idea, the "panic pipe retreat", the rotating hose drum, the moving clouds - make it a very enjoyable game! And it's very addictive, because the bottom cave is so ha...

Re: LODERUNNER on the ZX81

Hmm, looking at the Loderunner screenshots at Mobygames I see that the original Apple II version had blue bricks, while the PC CGA Version had cyan bricks...

I prefer your blue brick version, but that's of course personal taste. :)

Re: New game idea

Last night I spent almost one hour playing the game on the emulator and still had not revealed half of the picture, so I had to save a snaphot... The bad thing is that you need a lot of time for this game - but on the other hand, this is unbelievable considering that it is a 1K game! I think that th...

Re: LODERUNNER on the ZX81

The great advantage of the "Chroma Program Enhacement Creator" is that each user can customize it according to his own preference without changing the original game. So there is no final version ;) Believe me, noone can make it better than you... The hole-closing effect looks so great! Thank you so...

Re: LODERUNNER on the ZX81

Kelly, would you like to publish your Chroma .col and .chr file?

If it isn't finished yet, then it would certainly need a few beta testing volunteers (like me for example). :D
