Just in time for the holidays (sort of), here's the latest round of additions. I still have some way to go with the queued material, but keep it coming and it'll get processed as soon as possible.
Thanks to all contribs, both to this update and the rest! On behalf of myself and my co-editors, thanks for keeping the site running and for keeping the adventuring spirit alive. See you all in 2014!

We've been added quite a lot of non-English games lately, and the clue sheets for Heyley's games are finally up as well. Thanks to all who have helped this time around. Oh, and thanks for the various comments about the Howarth interview. Glad it's being read.

It's been a while since our latest update, but work has continued behind the scenes. This time around I'm immensely pleased to present an interview with Brian Howarth, a classic game creator which many of you will be familiar with from his Mysterious Adventures series, Gremlins and others. I've been on the lookout for him for a number of years, so I was very thrilled when contact was finally established.

Brian is a very friendly and interesting chap, and I hope you enjoy reading the interview as much as I did conducting it.

In other news, a number of games have been added and a large number of Amstrad and TRS-80 screenshots have been added.

Quite a lot of new games - a particular thanks to ChickenMan for supplying lots of screenshots this time around (still need to add some of them).

I'm doing my best to salvage information on the Amstrad games mentioned in the news update from April 23. Some of these are included with this week's update.

I've been leafing (pdf'ing?) through old issues of the classic TRS-80 magazine 80 Micro. A few new - well, old actually - games saw the light of day again.

I'm still working my way through the list of submitted material. A special thank you to Juan for his work on the Amstrad section. Unfortunately it seems as if one of the most useful Amstrad resources, CPC Power, is down for the count, so for the time being it isn't available for our research. Too bad. Other than that, as usual thanks to all contributors. There's more to come!

It's been too long since the latest update and we have an embarassingly long backlog. Ouch. I'll do my best to get most of it out of the way within the next days. But I'm awfully pleased that you've all been so active.

Following the news in the previous update about the solution to a long unsolved BBC adventure comes news in this update about the solution to another long unsolved BBC adventure. Take a bow Crown of Mardan, though this time the problem in solving the game lay mostly in the fact that until recently a bug-free version was not available from the usual suspects.

Moron

Plot

Aeons ago, whilst out joy-riding in their spaceship, a race of people known as "Morons" managed to stimble upon and subsequently steal the Three Pillars of Time (the PAST, PRESENT and FUTURE).
Overcoming their amazement at their good fortune they put the Three Pillars of Time in the Purser's safe aboard the spaceship and set a course for their home planet.
The Moron Captain, being a sneaky sort of Moron, removed the Three Pillars of Time from their place of safe keeping and hid them elsewhere within the ship.
When the crew realised that the Pillars of Tie were missing, they knew that their Captain had been sneaky and promptly killed him.
As the crew's I.Q. was even lower than their now deceased Captain they omitted to question or torture him first to find out where he had hidden the Three Pillars of Time.
They immediately abandoned their posts and began a frantic search of the spaceship.
The ship meanwhile, drifted aimlessly through space until it approached the planet Earth ... on a collision course ...
Realising their danger they managed to put the spaceship in an unstable Earth orbit, then the Moron crew twiddled their thumbs and generally mooched about...
This is where you take over...

Your objective is to teleport aboard the Moron spaceship, find the Three Pillars of Time and teleport back to Earth. To help you, your dead predecessor has scattered 9 replacement Oxygen cylinders and 9 replacement Batteries aboard the spaceship.

You'll need to:
Maintain your life support system
Avoid tripping the Intruder Alarm
Deal with the Moron's pets
Then, if you find each Pillar of Time, you'll have to dispose of the Moron (who comes to claim it), in a novel and unusual way.

Finally you'll need to compete your objective before the spaceship spirals out of its orbit and crashes onto the Earth.

The Morons couldn't find the Pillars of Time... CAN YOU?
