It's not an ADF, it's an executable, you must launch the game.exe file. I have decompacted the archive with total commander and copy the two files: game.exe and game.(I even created a generic whdload with). It's not the same game that Plumpy AGA, it's his ancestor.

Transylvania - One of the best old skool text adventure games which has a high lemon score

I remember first seeing this game on an Apple II very early 80's

There even seems to be an end of level boss fight but can't hit him; therefore progress further:



@GMods; can you please move posts #404, 405, 406, 409 and 410 into a new thread named "Plumpy OCS"?

sorry, I have no more information, I had just tried it out of curiosity. It was while reading the information of Plumpy AGA (by Jason Lucas) that I saw the game was inspired by an old version for OCS (by Paul Tankard).

Ok thanks.

Both seem to be playable demos and are not complete.

I am trying to see if I can contact the developer as he made quite a few games for the Amiga, especially some of the better ones in SEUCK.

Sky Flyer (not number II), Intense Sector One Reborn, PeeBee. I'll let you know if I get a response.

I've created a disk for this OCS version of Plumpy, which you'll find in The Zone!



...guess this was "unreleased" for OCS.

Obviously there's the later, full AGA version; which is based on the above.

Hi Damien,

I know you have Galaga 94 in your collection, not sure if you know that's its a rip off of Galactoid released the year earlier using a lot of the same assets and levels. I guess it is what Harold Muller seemed to do. Balls rips off Pollymorf.

[ Show youtube player ]

Blitris is a nice tetris clone
Galaxians v1.3 by Kevin Gallagher is a decent clone
Super Skiddy 3 - Things on ice is a decent 2 player racer.

All videos are on my channel so you can see what you think

I already have both of Kevin Gallagher's games; "Galaxians & Scramble" on one disk in my collection





v1.3 seem newer though

...but I'm not sure I like the grey background compared with dark blue background above.

Yeah 1.3 was the last version released of Galaxians and was featured in Amiga Format.

I messaged Kevin recently and he wasn't too happy with it for some reason.

He has recently released Missile Command and is working on a Phoenix conversion.
