ChinnyVision - The Complete Guide To Roland
« on: 13:24, 18 September 14 »
This one was hard work in more ways than one, it's a look at every commercially released Roland game for the CPC:

Should all be there. And no, I haven't included the two ACU type-ins as I don't consider them official games (neither have a SOFT number).


Sorry it's so long but there are quite a few to get through! As usual all captured from my CPC 6128. No emulators used!

Both end screens for ROLAND IN TIME and ROLAND IN SPACE.



EDIT: I was a big fan of ROLAND AHOY!

Am doing a phone game inspired by one of the Roland game (or the original game the Roland one is a rename of but it was the Roland version I played lots)
Favorite CPC games: SwitchBlade, Stryker in the Crypts of Trogan, Turrican II, UN Squadron, Oh Mummy

Rolands Revenge? IIRC the Winter '85 Amsoft catalogue says Roland In Space is the final Roland game so surprised to hear another was planned!

I thought that Roland Takes a Running Jump was a decent Manic Miner clone, not bad for a magazine article. And it had a level editor...

Roland Take A Running Jump was not a commercial Amsoft release and has no SOFT number, so it's not really an official game.


Its a rather poor Manic Miner clone that was more about a programming tutorial and less about being a game that was any good.

Roland Goes Digging is a port of Space Panic, which is the very first platform game.

However, to "complete" the Roland series (ie, including the type-ins stuff; ROLAND IN THE HAUNTED HEDGES, ROLAND TAKES A RUNNING JUMP, etc)... there's always ROLAND SAVES THE POCORO LEGENDS FROM AN INEXPLICABLE PERIL OF SOME KIND... or POCORO LEGENDS for short! ^_^
