Re: The comp.sys.sinclair Crap Games Competition 2021: 25th edition extravaganza!

END OF WEEK 14: In this week's CSSCGC review: there's only been one submission this week, which was Salvador Camacho's Camel Racing , for the 16K ZX81. And also for the same machine and the same memory capacity, Colin Williams' MotoRace81 wasn't submitted this week, but Google decided to hide away ...

Re: The comp.sys.sinclair Crap Games Competition 2021: 25th edition extravaganza!

Exciting news! After an unexpected three weeks of downtime, the CSSCGC surges back into life with two new entries for the ZX81! And because they're for one of the machines that this forum is interested in, it's only right that I post the reviews here as soon as possible 9as I'd do with QL stuff on t...

Re: The comp.sys.sinclair Crap Games Competition 2021: 25th edition extravaganza!

END OF WEEK 13: It's the first report from the Marshlands... and it's not good news, in that I haven't had a chance to review the one entry I've found this week. I say "found", because I only came across it when the Evil Google Empire forced me to log into my email through the web portal instead of...

Re: The comp.sys.sinclair Crap Games Competition 2021: 25th edition extravaganza!

END OF WEEK 12: Hva i helvete? It's been a blank week. And it's been a blank almost-two-weeks, seeing as the last submission was a day after the week 10 round-up. I've had promises, but these are yet to be fulfilled... The week 13 round up will come from a different part of the country - CSSCGC Tow...

Re: The comp.sys.sinclair Crap Games Competition 2021: 25th edition extravaganza!

END OF WEEK 11: Just the one submission this week - Paul E. Collins' Balloonatix for the 48K Spectrum. As Crap Games go, that was a good one, despite the urge I had to throw all my computing equipment across the room into a pile of smashed circuit boards when I encountered the tremendously evil sta...

Re: Can anyone remember the url of Sinclair’s old websites?

I remember finding the Sinclair Research website in my first year at university (1997/98) and being amazed that the company still existed in any way.

I never did buy an A-bike...

Re: 40 years ago...

A toast also to Lardo whose most excellent refurbished zeddies will probably be around for another 40 years. :D Mine is serving me well this year. Once I'm established at New CSSCGC Towers (the move is in 17 days) I'll get it out again and test all the wonderful ZX81 entries I've had by that point....

Re: The comp.sys.sinclair Crap Games Competition 2021: 25th edition extravaganza!

END OF WEEK 10: Double figures on the weekly reports. Operation Fly By Night (Away From Here) is getting a bit fraught, but if I said I was grateful not to have received any entries since last Saturday, I'd be half-lying at least because I want them to keep coming in. I already have the promise of ...

Re: Was there ever a good Centipede for the ZX81?

I’m sure there’s a way to embed tweets into a thread, but until I work it out here’s a video of the conversion... https://twitter.com/BobsStuffGames/status/1370460068509069312 That looks absolutely top banana. Or should that be top mushroom? Anyway, what everyone else said: finish that, it'll be wo...

Re: The comp.sys.sinclair Crap Games Competition 2021: 25th edition extravaganza!

I said I would publicise any ZX81 and ZX80 games here in full the way I do on the other forums when they arrive. And finally, on the right day, one has! So cheers to 1024MAK for answering the call. Presenting, something that not only celebrates the ZX81 blowing out 40 candles on its birthday cake, b...
