Title: ChinnyVision - The Complete Guide To Roland
Post by: chinnyhill10 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)

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! ^_^
