BRILLIANT! I'll be bagging that when I get home.

What a great idea.
Hmm, just pretend I wrote something witty eh?

I'm not sure even WOPR or Skynet could run something as big as 2mb, never mind a Speccy.

I approve of the random penguin liberation, and I believe I just saw Dizzy looking disconsolately out at me from a castle, though that may have been a hallucination. This strikes me as the sort of game John George Jones would have made, if he'd been better at making games.

Fantastic!  When's the C64 version being released?

Don't hold yer breath.

(Though, having said that, somebody did convert an Evil Dead Freescape game I made to the Amstrad CPC last year, so you never know...)

That's looks like promising returns to old fashioned gaming and based on something from here as well.

I want to se more of those....

Pity I don't like using Emulators, they fuck-up my computer.

Someone's done a walkthrough, so those of you averse to fiddling about with emulators can have a look at the game in its entirety...

You're a genius.

This just goes to show how under-used 2000 AD is as a resource for awesome cross-media storytelling. We've had the decent Dredd VS Death video game, a great Rogue Trooper game (on the PS2, and I know there was an older one too), but so little else!

The Dredd mobile game is fantastic -- would be great to see similar games based on ABC Warriors, Slaine, Strontium Dog. Any other ideas?

that looks great, truly like a lost game from the 8 bit era.  I love the definition on Spectrum sprites compared to the other 8 bit systems
You know we didn't have Spectrums Downunder :( but I always wanted one, even with its colour clash the actual Graphics looked much cleaner and more defined than the C64's not that I had one of those either, my dad decided to get us a Tandy TRS80 Colour Computer 1, it had all the upgrades, up from 4k to 64k, upgraded Os and Basic, Disk Drive and Dot Matrix printer we even had a software assembler for writing machine code (which I never did :().  Pity it was a US machine and you couldn't find F&*k all games for it in Australia and its colour was all crappy on our PAL TV.  Still I got very good at typing in listings from imported US magazines as it was about the only source of games I had.
