I should also add that it would have been even better if the Spectrum loading screen could have been adapted for the CPC - but this is only a rather minor quibble.

Yes, right. Unfortunately I'm not an artist and the speccy loading screen was a collaboration. I didn't want to use mode 1 so ...

Well, this game is a conversion rather than a port. It is different anyway :)

Maybe somebody could help with a title screen. What's about @MacDeath or @Carnivac or/and all the others posting mock ups here in the forum. This time it actually would really make sense to draw a screen. Give it a helping hand guys.  :)

Hello,

Nice game ! It reminds me a little bit Klax !  Graphics are not so bad but could be improved. Anyway, that's a very good surprise, as 2015 is clearly not a very good blend (hu hu,not sure of this traduction, means "cuvĂ©e" in french :-) ) for CPC software.

I recorded a video with some gameplay.



I started OK, clearing the board several times; but then I lost focus getting to level 14 :picard:

The funny thing is I didn't know about Magical Drop, but I've checked videos and the gameplay looks similar. I would say the game mechanics are closer to Klax than Magical Drop, but there you are.

I finally got to play it, and loved it. I started off relaxed and cool, but soon enough I was frowning and trying to concentrate...


Thanks mate, that's a really cute title! Why don't you update the Wiki home page with an announcement? Also, can I add it to the downloads?

Thanks! I'm glad you like it.

I don't know how to do that, but I can try (any pointers?); and of course you can add it to the downloads. NP!

Oh, more than liked it, just stopped playing :D


Don't worry, I'll edit the page myself :) (hint: if you hit Edit on a page you can very easily see how the wiki works...)

Ok, added it to the Wiki's home page news :)


We should also have a special page about all your own efforts...
