I was playing with creating a new colour scheme for Green Beret last night because our eldest has suddenly become fascinated with my VIdeoNuLA boards and wanted to have a go at improving an existing game.Here's the result so far:I found a poke that let me advance through all the levels so played the game through to the end. However, apart from the knife you start with, I didn't ever manage to acquire another type of weapon. I know that on other versions you can get a flamethrower etc. but does anyone know if the Beeb version has other weapons? I've never really played the game much because I found the original colours too garish.
Yeah, it's dreadfulRich Talbot-Watkins wrote:You could change every colour in that game to black, and it'd be no less playable.
In looking for a clue about the weapons, I came across an Acorn User review that called it one of the worst games ever on the Beeb! The Micro User was far more positive
EDIT: Should have looked at the instructions on EveryGameGoing - you have to press 'SHIFT' to shoot rather than 'RETURN' which is just to stab. The flamethrower is shooting green & pink fireballs!
That seems odd. I could swear you could get different kinds of weapons, but maybe I'm remembering things incorrectly. Maybe I'm thinking of a different game. Anyway, I like you color scheme, Rob. I think it's an improvement lol.
You are right - I was simply pressing the wrong button You have to press SHIFT to shoot but I was only pressing the stab key...Bohannan wrote:That seems odd. I could swear you could get different kinds of weapons, but maybe I'm remembering things incorrectly.
I've discovered the flamethrower, don't know if there are any other weapons.
