« 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.

I played Sgt. Helmet today, just a couple of quick games (almost completed stage 2).

Some bits are a bit fiddly, like shooting the fences... if you walk straight, instead of getting through the hole you just made, you hit the actual fence; or the respawning soldiers in tight spaces.

But it has a very nice "budget" feel. I love it! Good graphics and music, some puzzles, not a bad game to spend an afternoon.


EDIT: looks like there will be physical edition of this one. I don't know details, but if is the Mojon Twins self-publishing like they did with Che-man, it may be cassette in jewel case.

I'm working on an English DSK version. I don't know about M4 compatibility as I don't own one, but it'll definitely compress into a single file on the disc. ;)

The Mojon Twins uploaded by mistake an OLD version with a known bug with the Joystick control. The correct version was uploaded to their website this morning.

M4 versions will follow somewhen today or this week, when Joseman finds time to do them.
