Pyskool 1.1.2

posted by TecSoft

Pyskool is a remake of Microsphere's Skool games written in Python and Pygame. It's designed to be very customisable and tweakable: even the behaviour of the characters is determined by lines in plain text configuration files.

The main changes since 1.1.1 are new theme tunes, new 'all shields' tunes, new 'open safe' tunes, new 'up a year' tunes and new lesson questions and answers for Skool Daze Take Too, Ezad Looks, and Back to Skool Daze. The new tunes (actually nursery rhymes and other traditional songs) are done in the style of the original Skool game tunes (i.e. rasping notes produced by code running in contended memory). Hopefully you'll be able to recognise some of them!

posted by TecSoft

ZX Spectrum 48K with AY-interface. 3 channels Speccy chip tune. A cover of "Courtesy" (Super Hexagon) song by Chipzel.

Also, probably not entirely finished as we would run out of RAM on the target-machine (Vectrex).
