Nice idea, I went till level 4, but I died many times because of enemies respawning just besides me. Frustrating. Nice gfxs and music though.

I agree that the gameplay could be tweaked a bit and the game would be even better, for example: avoid respawning enemies over the player when taking or leaving a spry can (in Pssst I think they don't respawn if there's a can in the gap, but I could be wrong). It's a small change, but I think it would improve the game a lot.

Nice and big sprites, perhaps a bit too big (and I guess that's why they are unmasked). The game area gets too busy, too quick. I think I remember Pssst having smaller sprites in relation to the playing area (?).

Despite all, I think is a good effort and a fun little game, and the music is perfect!

Released The Return of Traxtor, Golden Tail, Magica and The Dawn of Kernel for the CPC.

If you like my games and want to show some appreciation, you can always buy me a coffee.

As a port of PSSST! it is very good and the graphics are a lot better and more colorful than on the Spectrum i think it's very good. In terms of an original idea i cannot rate it as highly because it is based on a classic Spectrum game.

Just had a quick play on this (to level 5r). I like it although I think the collision detection is not perfect. I've not played Pssst so can't compare to the original...
