Totally addicted. I only got my first ever BBC micro a few weeks ago and I seem to have digressed from reading the manual and tinkering with basic to slaying wizards and snakes full time. Thumbs up chrisB. =D>

Announcing Castle Defender the BBC Micro’s only* tower defence game.
Hi Chris,
I just found your game whilst searching for tower defence games on 8-bits.
I am thinking of atari xl/xe conversion, could you PM me to not hijack this thread anymore?

UPDATE: sorry, i cannot reply your PM :( - i can only read it; could you contactct me directly by email <removed> ?

To answer your question from PM, I would like to try to convert your game to Atari xl/xe, it has same cpu, so logic could be easily reused 1:1, however it would require changes to gfx (equivalent to MODE 1 does not exist on Atari, so video data would need to be reduced to 2-color mode 320x192), also statusbar would need to be recreated/redesigned.

BR,

Hi Chris,

Since there is no way (at the moment) to directly contact you, I have created new topic on the conversion: viewtopic.php?f=53&t=16091
I will be glad if you could help me with the stuff...

BR,
Martin
