What ZX81 game are you currently playing?

Post by yerzmyey » Tue Mar 06, 2012 1:43 pm

OK, OK, I copied the idea from WOS. ;)

But it might be useful for people reading the Forum and interested in some good ZX81 stuff.

As for me, in Friday we were drinking beer with Hellboj and playin' Boulder Logic by Bobs - for HOURS :) - plus then the "kinda-second-part" of it (can't remember the title at the moment).

And yesterday I was playing "Alien Mind" by Andre Baune. Also a veeeery beautiful game. Platform/logic, very interesting. And - I assume it's BASIC - one of the most developed games in BASIC, I have ever seen (there IS one better but I will play it... today ;) ).

I'm about to have a go at playing some titles that I've never seen before:

City of Xon (Zaxxon clone)
and
Fortress of Zorlac (A kind of Yar's Revenge)

Then I'll be back to hack ZXpand joystick support into fungaloids..!

Yupp, joystick for the "Fortress..." would be really nice! ;)

PS: Cool site btw. That looks more/less like the "database" I mentioned in another thread.

Even if the content is off-limits, perhaps some negotiations with the owner of the engine might mean we could set it up here?

Meanwhile I was for several hours playing "YOOGOR" game - again by Andre. I wasn't able to finish it (it's a pity he made it so difficult), still - it's one of the best games for ZX81, in my humble opinion. Very... misterious. ;)

Today - "Laby".
A very cool game (new, but in oldschool style). Labyrinth genre. Gooooood. :)

In the moment I play with ZX81FALD.p

It's not that spectacular visual game but the sound is incredible great. :mrgreen:






PS: This is my fast loader I am working on. :lol:
So about 25 times faster than original Zeddy Loader, now about 1kByte transfer/second.

City of Xon is a challanging game, it goes so fast! But it's a real programming achievement.

I've been playing good old 3D Monster Maze lately. And Perilous Swamp.

On the other hand, I was playing several times Mazogs again, but this time - for testing the joystick version, made for ZXpand.
A really good fun. :) :) :) Especially with the Amstrad joypad connected in. ;)

This one:

It brings a new meaning to the word "Money Pyramid" ;-) well, at least it's one that works!

Regards,

Shaun.
