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


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

OK, thanks!

I'll register on the wiki at some point, sometimes I find outdated information that would be just 5 minutes to improve.

That'd be nice to do :) Editing the wiki is pretty easy, you can find help on there but also by looking at how an article has been written it's very easy to understand the syntax!

Very good game, the controls are fine, I kept playing in a trance.


p.s. Question, do the levels ever end? In easy mode I am over level 30, I am wondering if I should just continue playing for a final win or it never ends?
p.p.s. Normal mode is more challenging, I also end around level 14.

I finally found time to play this gem. (I only use original hardware so it sometimes takes some time before I finally check new stuff)
Man,  this game is awesome.  Wish developers back 25 years ago made such quality stuff for our CPC. 

I know of course they didn't have quad core laptops, emulators, Internet and awesome c libraries back then. But they should know better than making crappy speccy ports :)

Anyways, congrats @reidrac

It has 25 levels; take a look to the the game page, it has useful information (including tips & tricks) ;)

How did you get over level 30 in easy mode? May be you found a bug. Do you keep cleaning the board at level +25?  :o

EDIT: hehe checked the code, to finish the game you need to level up normally (without cleaning the board) after level 25 (so that would be 25 levels played).

I know there aren't many two button joysticks out there, but I finally managed to test the game with a GX4000 controller, and it works!

Juan op Twitter: "And it works... The Return of Traxtor supports two button

Keyboard is fine, but with the gamepad plays just perfect (left button to fire blocks, right button to beam them into the bay).

(I had tested it in emulators, of course, but happy to see that the real thing works too)

Real thing works too with 2 button Gamepad. And it's excellent ;)

I finally jumped to Mode 1 and ported the speccy loading screen...

18284-0

OK, agreed that is better than no loading screen (well, not completely true as it has a loading screen, but is just too dull).

I may re-release the game with this addition. Watch this space!
