In the last episode of the series, we take a look at the news and top selling Spectrum games from July 1985. In an end of series special, we take a look at probably the best known game publisher on the Spectrum, Ultimate Play The Game.
Вышел новый клон Спектрума AVR ZX SPECTRUM v2.0, размером около двух обычных карандашей. Обсуждение проекта тут. Видео-обзор от автора:
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!
A very early Phoenix variant from Softek — but is it any good?
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).
