My new game stuff.

Post by Juggernaut Headcrush » Fri Sep 09, 2016 8:38 am

Been a while since I've popped on here, thought I'd share some of the stuff I've been up to.

Most recently, I've been working on a new ZX Spectrum game based on an H.P. Lovecraft short story called "In the Walls of Eryx", got a video of my progress here. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FLDfdU-1WVI

Last year I managed to transfer most of my Amiga disks to my PC via a Compact Flash Card; one of the many things I was able to recover was a disk filled with custom levels for Worms that I made, based on sci-fi spaceships. I ended up filling up the rest of the disk with new levels created in Photoshop and then transferred them (painfully) to Deluxe Paint. I made a video of some of them in action here. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jGCwcB_29p4.

The Wicker Woman game that I made 5 years ago is now playable in-browser here http://keezees.com/wickerwoman.html, programmed an emulator into my website so I can show it off to people without them having to download anything.

I've also been working on getting a world record high score on New Zealand Story, this video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rSDRvGYHTdo shows the last attempt that I managed to film, the cabinet since erased all the scores for the game, but I have been filling up the table again with my new attempts and have had a score upwards of 2.5 million.

I also managed to get the hi-score on R-Type in the Megabytes games cafe in Glasgow. It's set to the hardest difficulty, incidentally, got to level 5 before I lost both lives.Image

Did you do any bugfixes or corrections to The Wicker Woman? I can't recall exactly what I found, but I do remember giving up in frustration when I found an unsignposted exit from a location (other directions were listed, just not the one to get me to an otherwise inaccesible place). It was a while after release so I didn't send you the info, maybe should have if I'd realised it would persist.

Not knocking it btw, I enjoyed as far as I got until the frustration set in.
