Re: New Game from Jim MacBrayne

Interesting to learn about QB64. I have written a lot of programs in qbasic during one of my former jobs (not games) but wasn't aware this updated version existed.

Re: Cell of the Ridges zx spectrum

Agreed. To a certain amount it can be ok like for instance the puzzle on getting the knife. but this is a bit too much furthermore some puzzles are very far fetched and not made clear during gameplay for instance the command "carefully cut gargoth" would never come to my mind or how to leave the cas...

Re: Cell of the Ridges zx spectrum

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 .

Getting out the cell doesn't really seem to be an issue. You just go north twice.
Yes but is the next command I needed RUN WEST because without doing this you are killed. Thanks :thumb:

Re: leotrope

I compared them and there is no difference concerning the obtained points. I guess it is not possible to get 100 points in the first part.

I don't understand why in this solution at the end you should WEAR IR because you needed that earlier to notice the yellow ticket.

Re: Cell of the Ridges zx spectrum

The author's solution is included in the Leotrope part 2 solution in that zip file. Thank you, yes I noticed it, but first I like to try the second part of Leotrope without the solution. The author writes that cell of ridges was a lot better than Leotrope. That made me curious and that's why I star...

It's not in standard PAW format and inPAWs won't recognised the PAWs signature for some reason.
Yes I noticed that when I wanted to use unpaw to look for the missing points (with our solution you only get 75 points)

Cell of the Ridges zx spectrum

This week I started to play another adventure by Graham Burtenshaw, the author of Leotrope, called Cell of the ridges. I did not get very far. Until now I found the following objects inside my cell: -length of rope -glass box -bit of string -small stone -piece of fungus -thing like a hammer -small k...

Re: Starcrash - ZX Spectrum

Leotrope Part 2... is actually out there, together with a full solution by the author... It was included on issue 5 of Grahame's SAM Coupe magazine Enceladus. It can be played on a SAM using a Spectrum emulator... Technically, I guess, the snapshot could be extracted a dumped back onto a Spectrum.....

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.

(P.S. I'll never cease to be amazed how slow the C64 is in loading stuff )
Well it would be nice an emulator could speed up the loading a bit, but then again when I had my first MSX computer it was normal it would take up to 15 mintues for a 64k game to load :)

Are you saying there's a tape image?
Yes, not on 8bitfiles, but I got it from someone who made it from his original copy.

Re: Skullduggery

Ok times goes fast I noticed :) I didn't realize it has been over a year since we were playing this game. Well I was organizing my computer and stumbled on my map. I've forgotten about most puzzles and I don't think I will start playing it again, but here you have my map so you can use it to finish ...
