« on: 09:50, 05 August 20 »
The Mojon Twins are porting their MK1 engine to create games from ZX Spectrum to CPC and are converting various games like this for example:

This doesn't look like a speccy port at all, does it? :)

Well, this sounds great! It's what Reidrac mentioned a few days ago here.

However, since all documentation is in Spanish, it's all Greek to me – and to all those other Non-Spanish CPC users out there. We really could need some translation volunteers.

Actually, I think I recall something about a new tutorial that could be even in English; but it may be MK2 or just me being confused :D

You may give it a go with Google translate or similar. I know it sucks, but these tools/engine are huge and I think is worth the effort to use them unless you want to build it all yourself (in which case there are enough docs in English; that's what I read at least).

The author has a Kofi (not sure if Patreon); may be you can ask him for a funding goal so people can chip in to encourage him to translate the docs. There are a good number of MK1 games for the speccy made by non Spanish speaking people; may be that's something else to explore.
Released The Return of Traxtor, Golden Tail, Magica, The Dawn of Kernel, Kitsune`s Curse and Brick Rick for the CPC.

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

I loved the speccy version of Jet Paco when it was released, although I think it was the NES version that got most of the attention (unfair IMHO).

Fun little game; I'm happy to see it'll be also available for the CPC. And the screens look very colourful!

I guess it is as simple as asking nicely:

I like the Mojon Twins games, very cute, and they always put the work into the CPC graphics when they do the CPC games.


It's great to see the various game engines becoming available as well.
