Futur Anterieur released a conversion of the puzzle game Kubmic for the Amstrad CPC. In this game you have to move tiles on a 5×5 pattern to match both patterns. Ok, this would be too easy, so you are only able to move complete lines.
You can download this addictive new game from the NVG FTP server or at the end of this posting.
Jonathan Cauldwell released a new version of the Arcade Game Designer (AGD) for the Amstrad CPC. With the AGD you can design your own arcade games. It features an own simplistic language, a sprite editor, a screen editor, etc. It is also possible to port games between the different platforms. The games “Lab Escape” and “Jigsaw Rescue” were built with the AGD.
You can get more information and find the latest version in the AGD forums.
- fixed sprite corruption at right edge of screen
- return to BASIC at end of game
- check for objects at next sprite position, not last position
- sprites can now be spawned safely in main loop events
- joystick 0/1 now selectable
Egotrip released a new colourful platform game which was developed with the Arcade Game Designer (AGD) like Lab Escape.You play the pet of Princess Amy – a potato, which came to life after it got electro-shocked. It played with Amys favourite jigsaw in the garden when a gust of wind scattered the pieces throughout the castle grounds. Now it is up to you to collect all 30 pieces until Amy comes home…
The game is about 95% finished and only minor things are missing because of some bugs of AGD, however it is fully completeable. You can download it at the end of this news or from the CPCWiki forums.
Princess Amy was playing around in the abandoned laboratory that exploded in Lab Escape. On the way she had bought a jacket potato for dinner, which she dropped in a puddle of slime. Just as she was about to pick it up, an electric shock caused the potato to come to life. She kept Potato as her pet.
One day not too long afterwards, Potato was trying to do Amy's favourite jigsaw in the garden, when all of a sudden a gust of wind scattered the pieces throughout the castle grounds. Now, you must guide Potato to collect all 30 pieces before Amy arrives home.
This game is about 95% finished. It is fully completeable, there are just a few minor things missing due to AGD bugs.
