Magic Mushroom screens

Postby davidb » Thu Mar 24, 2011 11:51 pm

Unlike some of the other games I've been looking into, digging around in the level data and trying to modify, Magic Mushrooms came with its own screen designer. I thought it would be nice to be able to create a summary Web page for a set of screens without having to fire up an emulator and take screenshots, so I wrote a tool to do that:

https://bitbucket.org/dboddie/mushroomscreens

The Screens directory included with the Python source files contains a set of levels my brother and I made many years ago which we called "Murphy's Quest For Mushrooms". You can see the summary page for them here:

The game was always a favourite of mine - I thought it was great fun. I bought Magic Mushrooms from the computer shop in the Red House in Chard. And the bastards in the shop took the Magic Mushrooms badge out the box so I never got one. Still annoyed about that now!

I've got a load of MM screens on a cassette that I designed.

I spent some time over the last couple of days transferring files from cassette, and some of them turned out to be levels for Magic Mushrooms! :D

So, to keep everyone happy over the holidays, I've put them in a UEF and attached them here. Some level sets are incomplete, containing some of the original levels amongst the new ones. However, there are a couple of complete sets. I've run my utility on them to generate HTML files for them, and these are included in the archive.

Happy Easter Egg mushroom hunting!
