If you’ve done swearing at your Atari after the release of Flappo Bird on the 2600 a few weeks ago (http://tacsgames.itch.io/flappo-bird), how about taking it out on your Sinclair ZX81 or MB Vectrex next? Both of these vintage systems have just seen the release of their own clones of the infuriating addictive Flappy Bird. Actually, the ZX81 and mighty Vec both deserve plenty of TLC and love so maybe it’ll be best to try these games out on emulation instead?…in fact, go hug your Vectrex right now 😉
Quack, for the ZX81 is by Bob, of Bob’s Stuff – maker of incredibly fun and playable games for the ZX81 (and ZX Spectrum). and has a knack for squeezing every ounce of fun juice out of the tiny 81.
Yup, the ZX81 keyboard might be a bit pants but in this game but you’ll only need one. Mash away!
Tap to fly and avoid everything el…..dammit, faceplanted again! Can you beat my whopping high score of (fanfare) four points?
Over on the Vectrex we have VeccyBird and you’ll have to do a little more tapping to keep ‘flappy’ or whatever it’s name is, aloft and out of trouble.
Yup, I suck at this too…I think I’ve only made it past the third tube but like the original you just can’t put it down.
So there you go, two more fantastic clones of a game the world loves and hates….and hates…and then loves a bit more 🙂
Posts have been a bit light these past few weeks as Curstie and I had promised ourselves, at the beginning of the year, we’d crack on with our house renovation and a lot of redecorating. I’m just about to start another day of sanding down walls and woodwork and spotted this via Facebook.
Chip tune artist TDK is offering all of his digital albums at a price to suit yourself.
Everyone loves Knightrider yes?…thought so. Well check out this (free!) fan made PC game currently in development.
Check out the project site at http://www.theknightrider.com where you’ll find more information and a chance to take a look at the digital cast and collection of retro cars that are set to appear in the game.
Well I never, diagnostic tools for KITT are performed on a Commodore 64…oh wait, no she’s just loading SIDplayer….Devon loves his disco!
If you can’t wait until the game is ready, how about loading up the classic Knightrider game by Ocean software?
