Terrapins - An excellent ZX Spectrum remake of an 80's coin op!



Quote:
The last news of today and a damn good one at that, is this weeks release of the Arcade remake of ' Terrapins ', which was an original Arcade game in 1981 now colourfully playable on the ZX Spectrum by Highrise and developed using Arcade Game Designer. This lovely commercial game with a demo available as well, puts you in control as Mama Terrapin, who has to save her babies from the evil bugs that are scattered throughout a large eight storey building!

I've been out of the Speccy scene for quite some time. I think I heard Martijn no longer runs WOS?

InvAGDers Deluxe - ZX Spectrum Space Invaders for free if you buy Terrapins!



Quote:
It was only just last month that I did a review of the Arcade remake of ' Terrapins ' on the ZX Spectrum by Highrise developed using Arcade Game Designer. A game by Allan Turvey, David Saphier and Craig Howard, featured high quality gameplay and a fantastic soundtrack that will be commercially released via Cronosoft in the next few weeks as its very own cassette. But what I didn't tell you as I found out recently, is you'll also be able to play a damn fine version of Space Invaders to go with it!

Gimmick! Yumetaro Odyssey - In dev ZX Spectrum title inspired by other classic games



Quote:
Once such game that is known as ' Gimmick! Yumetaro Odyssey' by greenwebsevilla, really caught my eye, as not only is it based on the 1992 Famicom/NES game Gimmick! published by Sunsoft, but each level is inspired by other classic games such as Sonic, Super Mario Bros, Castlevania and more!

Pumpkin Poe - Jet Set Willy style ZX Spectrum fairy tale platformer (WIP)



Quote:
Unlike the previous game we spoke about, this one is a work in progress platformer that's going to be in a similar style to that of Jet Set Willy but in a more child story vibe, so expect lots of colourful rooms, difficult enemies to jump over and items to collect.

Impossabubble - Dave Clarke shares his work in progress bubbling ZX Spectrum game



Quote:
There's a lot of ZX Spectrum games to get through today and the next one to talk about, is Dave Clarke's rather nice in development arcade platformer ' Impossabubble ', which is being developed using Arcade Game Designer. Currently at an early stage of creation, Dave has shown off a number of animated screens in this new teaser video, although he does go on to mention it does need a title screen, loading screen, music and as always the final touches!

The Sword of Ianna - A new game launches on MSX and ZX Spectrum that will blow you aw



Quote:
This year has been all out awesome for retro goodness, what with Argus coming out on the C64, unreleased games finding their way to the Amiga, and of course Speccy games doing the rounds. But if you have an MSX or yes a ZX Spectrum, you really should prepare yourselves to be amazed, as RetroWorks, the same team behind Vade Retro, The Charm, and Teodoro can't fly, has finally announced the release of one of the most anticipated of games 'The Sword of Ianna'

Any tips for getting the +3 version of sword of ianna to load? I'm trying to get the side a\side b dsk files to load up in fuse but nothing starts. Other dsk files are working ok.

Both disks work fine for me in Fuse for Windows. I dragged Side A into the Fuse window and it booted, then inserted Side B when asked and that loaded fine, so the images are OK. Must be something with your Drive A setup in Fuse, is it set to single-sided 40 Track and have you selected Spectrum +3 from the Machine > Select menu?

Has anyone seen the ZX Spectrum Demoscene? There's some really cool stuff out there, made me change my opinion of the machine for good!

Of course! As I've said here several times before: the Spectrum community is how I'd like the Amiga community to be. They're the benchmark of excellence to which I judge every other computer scene.

I know, right? And yet when I had the audacity to mention that in the Outrun thread, I got my head bitten off.

If the Amiga scene could be even half as active (both for new hardware and new software) as the speccy scene then I'd be a very, very happy Dunny....

The Last Run - John Blythe teases a potential new ZX Spectrum game!



Quote:
It's that name again John Blythe, creator of games such as The Darkness of Raven Wood, Foggys Quest, Circuitry, and his previous spiffy game called 'Peculiar Perplexing Perils Of Professor Poldark. But this time he's no longer going cute, as he has recently been teasing a new project he may or may not release in ' The Last Run '; a rather excellent looking action shooter. As in his words "our battalion is gone. Destroyed in the last airstrike from the enemy. You have one desperate, suicidal run at the enemy base. One last loony run. Make it count soldier! Make them pay soldier..."

Zukinox - A rather nice Cybernoid ZX Spectrum clone by Jaime Grilo



Quote:
The ZX Spectrum scene has really been busy this week, what with the Benny Hill theme added to Benny Hill's Madcap Chase, Horace and The Robots announced, and a Zelda style game called Xelda shown off with new footage, but this time we are looking towards Jaime Grilo's Cybernoid clone of ' Zukinox ', which again is for the ZX Spectrum and released just yesterday!
