Happy Found: An AMIGA game in GREEK

YES!

Just found this amongst all the stuff I'm currently looking thru...
Well done, and COMPLETELY IN GREEK!

So this will the first Greek-only game in HOL! (clicky)

In the zone (where else )

BTW: Other Greek games warmly welcome.

[edit]
nasty! - stupid Aminet beat me to it (gee, I swear I had no idea )

Don't thank me, thank Aminet (see update in post above )

Well, I had no idea that it's available until I input the programmer's surname into google (I had to "decrypt" it first, though )

Funny thing is that there have been a few Greek games that are not in HOL. Unfortunately, I can not find them. My fault back in the mid 90s that I didn't keep them. If I remember well, there were 3 games, released by Spin Software. A shooter called Galaxy ...something, a mind game called Tarta, and a strategy game that I forgot the name. I have reviews in Greek mags from all 3....

Cool

Hopefully other Greek people reading this will be able to retrieve these rare treasures someday.
Fingers crossed!

@manicx: could you please scan in the reviews and then e-mail me so that I have your address for reply? I'd like to add 3 new HOL MIAs as Greek games are exceptionally rare. Thanks!
Or alternatively, upload them to the HOL ftp.

There is also a chance that some Greek guy directly reads the HOL entry and writes to the team by web interface, supplying screenshots!

So... After 7 years, we found this forum and this post.
We are the greek programmers who wrote these 2 games (TARTA & SHANGHAI).

Maybe i can send you the other game (TARTA). If someone there still want it.

I'm sure that would be much appreciated

Currently there's no entry in HOL (Hall of Light) for Tarta...

Nice to see you here, Alexis. Your game was an excellent Shanghai clone, a bit difficult of course but I'll never forget my surprise when I first heard the "Χάρρυ Κλυν" quote when the time was up!

Speaking of Greek games, did anyone ever come across "Gnosis"? It was an excellent Trivial Pursuit - like shareware game, with an editor! I remember you had to hold down Ctrl (or was it Amiga?) to write in Greek.

Unfortunately, I got rid of all my floppies a few months ago after realizing that I hadn't loaded one in years thanks to WHDLoad, and my wife was giving me a hard time about the waste of space... now I kick myself for not backing up some rare gems I had first.

alkis21 I don't believe you did such a thing.
I doubt my floppies work (I still have my Amiga AND my C64 disks), but to throw them away? Tough.

Pyromania I doubt you'll find more. There are maybe 4 or 5 tops... total.

Nice to see you all.
I don't have the Amiga anymore, but before i give it away, i copy all my favourite games to .adf files. Of course ALL my source files (from AMOS).
My last upload to Aminet was "The most beautifull clock in the world", that i made for a local TV station (for the night).


I will try to upload some progs from the past.
