Pentomino
« on: 01:38, 16 April 17 »
By my watch its sunday, which means happy easter!


And so finally, we are really glad to release the first co-production between HAL6128 (GFX) and me (code):






Pentomino is a puzzle-game where you have to solve 464 different puzzles, split into:


32 easy puzzles where you’ll have to place two token
216 medium puzzles with three token
216 hard puzzles where you’ll have to place three token
Additionally during the fourth game-mode, you’ll have to solve all 464 puzzles against the clock.


The first three modes start the puzzles randomized, the fourth-mode, the survival-mode, starts always with the same puzzle. The game consists of 15 different token.


Pentomino runs on every CPC, both Plus and also on the GX4000. Different image-types and a short manual are provided in the zip-archive, provided on my site.


The game is dedicated especially for my big son (6 years old) who is just beginning to play videogames and likes a board game like Pentomino.


You can read more informations and download the game on my site:

Hey, thanks for the feedback. Hope you have a lot of fun with it!
Also, packing all the stuff (lot of gfx, sprites, music, code, buffer) for a 64kb machine is technically pretty cool, isn't it? ;D
