Re: third xanadu game

The ALLY command is a cool feature.

Strangely, I've just been corresponding with the author and have popped a page up about the Hopesoft games here... http://8bitag.com/info/hopesoft.html

The solution to some of these puzzles are made too complex for me. Not my kind of game, but at least I managed to finish my map .
You seem to have to spend a lot of time commanding NPCs to do things. I'm not a big fan of that sort of thing.

Re: Cell of the Ridges zx spectrum

The author writes that cell of ridges was a lot better than Leotrope. That made me curious and that's why I started playing it but I didn't even manage to get out of the cell Graham's Doomsday was the one that was totally different. Very dark in tone. He even produced a second version of the game w...

Re: Cell of the Ridges zx spectrum

I've isolated the Cell solution...

Getting out the cell doesn't really seem to be an issue. You just go north twice.

Re: Cell of the Ridges zx spectrum

The author's solution is included in the Leotrope part 2 solution in that zip file.

It's been about thirty years since I played Graham's games, so I can't remember a thing about it.

Yes I noticed that when I wanted to use unpaw to look for the missing points (with our solution you only get 75 points)

Here's a temporary .TAP version... I've had to remove the graphics from the title page in order to rebuild the database... http://8bitag.com/temp/leotrope-part2.tap I was hoping to extract the ones from part 1 and drop them into the corrupted section of part 2... but there seems to be something odd ...

Re: Starcrash - ZX Spectrum

You'll need a version of SC_Speclone with the Spectrum ROM loaded into it. It's something that I will look at when I have a little bit of free time. I did have a quick look earlier (to verify the presence of the Leotrope snapshot on the disk) but I don't have a suitable image of SC_Speclone prepare...

Re: leotrope

As discussed in another thread... Here is a snapshot of Leotrope part 2 that has been extracted from issue 5 of the Sam Coupe diskzine, Enceladus issue 5. (The diskzine was produced by the author of the game) http://8bitAG.com/temp/leotrope.zip There does seem to be some slight oddities in the PAW f...

New Game from Jim MacBrayne

Amiga owners will probably remember Jim MacBrayne as the author of games like The Golden Fleece and The Mission. He talks about his Amiga text adventures here, as well as the recent PC ports he's produced... and his BRAND NEW game for 2020... http://8bitag.com/info/jim-maybrayne.html

Re: Starcrash - ZX Spectrum

Unfortunately this is not uncommon. Several years ago we played a spectrum game called Leotrope here on the forum and as far as I know there stil hasn t been found a copy containing the second part. Yes, Leotrope was definitely two parts as I played it back in the day and was indirectly involved wi...

Re: Starcrash - ZX Spectrum

Although there should be two parts to the game; one on each side of the tape, as shown in the review...
https://spectrumcomputing.co.uk/mag.php ... 65&page=41

...only one side/part is preserved.

I'll flag it up as being an issue on the ZXDB.
