Thank you very much, Dave Footitt.

Thanks fella. Although I wrote the game, I had nothing to do with posting it out to you - must've been Samwise or Arcadian that did that :)

Re: Mountain Panic available at Play

Yeah wouldn't mind a copy of that map myself! It's currently burnt into my brain but I expect it'll vanish at some point, things don't usually stick around too long in there ;)

Glad everyone's enjoying the game, still can't believe I actually finished it

Re: Mountain Panic available at Play

Thanks for the positive feedback, it's great to read. It can be really difficult after working on something on and off for years to judge how it actually plays! I will look into the joystick issue, we did test on both BBC B, Master and Master Compact (even B+ I think). Apologies for that problem, I ...

Ah! Cool. (He wouldn't be 'Zynx' by any chance?) I'd quite understand if he considered it rather strange or perplexing for someone to remake one of his works, some 23 years later... in BASIC, on the same platform. I regret my choice of music somewhat -- it's a great track (as are many others by Jog...

Re: Mountain Panic available at Play

I believe you can order by emailing either Dave or Pete

But the retrosoftware site really needs a 'shop' section where you can buy the games from.

It's frustrating having written a game to hear that people are having trouble getting it :(

Mountain Panic will be available to buy on 5.25" disc at this year's Play Expo if you fancy picking up a copy!

It's compatible with BBC B, B+, Master 128 and Master Compact.

Favour to ask

Hi all

Does anyone have a real BBC Master Compact, with joystick, for some last minute compat testing?

I just want to send an SSD image over and get it checked out for any issues.

Please PM me if you can help :)

Thanks

Re: Hard disk (or CF equiv?)

I have an external retro clinic CF system going spare if you want it. It's as new, it might need some software support such as a Rom (can't remember) but that's easier than getting a new CF box!

Do we have this article in the archives somewhere? It's from an old Guardian supplement. If we don't I can get it scanned in..

I suppose it depends what you grew up playing in the arcades. For me:

Gauntlet
Rolling Thunder
Congo Bongo
Double Dragon
Kung Fu Master
