As some of the five people who use this forum may have noticed, I've fallen down a rabbit hole of improving old ZX81 games recently for no defensible reason :lol: And my latest project was this: hunchsu.jpg Obviously it's a Zeddy version of the arcade classic Hunchback, published as a Sinclair User ...

Any chance you could apply the patch to the latest versions, with the proper attract-mode text and the high-score display? (I tried adding these lines from the BAS file to ...

Another translation - Mad Jack

Some of the games you find on sites like Hebdogiciel are real lost gems in amongst a lot of dross, and this is one of the former. It's a super-hard 10-level puzzle platformer about robbing a mansion, a bit like one of the really hard Lode Runner levels but without any digging or enemies chasing you,...
