DescriptionThis is offensively good for a first attempt in Spectrum BASIC, with more colourful action than Derek Jolly's favourite magazine.
The plot is acceptably ludicrous - brave Sir Clive is called upon to rid the kingdom of dragons while protecting passing cyclists - but you can tell you're dealing with a professional because firing a bullet doesn't stop everything else from moving.
Not crap so much as mediocre, even if the dragons do look like kangaroos.
CommentsSir Clive's Dragon Mission is really quite accomplished for a BASIC program, with up to sixteen sprites chunking around. As a result, it's painfully slow.
The graphics look like somebody worked on them quite hard and then gave up in frustration - Sir Clive never looked more anorexic - and being rendered in magenta on green hardly helps their cause.
This has all of the elusive pathos of a game that doesn't want to be crap but can't help it.

DescriptionYou are left alone at home, your mates don't want to go to the pub. So what are you going to do? Why, play strip stone-paper-scissors which some random girl of course! A rather tame effort given some of the 4bit hardcore porn that has passed for a game this year...

DescriptionNow you might think, with Anders being from Sweden, that this game is about a certain famous Swedish car manufacturer who aren't sponsoring the CGC 2006, so don't get their name mentioned here. But you'd be wrong! This game springs out of a bizarre css thread, started by Bohus Kral and relating to the word "vole", which means something different in Czech. Vole, naturally, became Volos - the Slavic god of cattle, wealth, fertility, the underworld, poetry and jam. This game took 3 attempts for Anders to get the finished version just right... or wrong.

DescriptionIn this third part of the Volos series, you are in control of Cowthilde who has been appointed to become a "rescuow". That means she is used to rescue people from the caves.Once Cowthilde is put into movement, she will keep going until she hits one end of the screen. At the right side, there is a person waiting to be picked up. Once he is picked up, guide Cowthilde back to the left side and a point of score will be awarded.To make it more difficult, Volos the bull god is back into the game. He moves back and forth at the top of the screen and suddenly will make a dive downwards. Fortunately there is a set of bricks that will prevent him from hitting Cowthilde, but for each time Volos hits a brick, it will be removed. Eventually there won't be any bricks left, and Cowthilde won't have anywhere to hide for Volos.You have a total of three cows. When you have lost the last life, you get a score summary and the chance to play again.Movement is as follows:O = Initiate movement leftP = Initiate movement leftAny other key will make Cowthilde stop where she is, which can be a useful way to wait for Volos to make his dive before moving on.If you think this game is a bit slow, it is recommended to be run on a 33 MHz ZX Spectrum or better. Or an emulator that can be boosted to 10X.
CommentsI put my emulator in full speed (as you recommend) and scored 141 before I give up after 2 minutes. I was very lucky, the bull never managed to catch me once!Sorry carlsson but you managed to cross crapness line. Anyway, it does what it says, we'll see how much sweet bellas it will gather.

DescriptionThis game is entirely in Swedish, more precisely a home cooked dialect of Wermelandia. In brief summary, the game is about finding the secret island hidden somewhere in the river. This is accomplished by shining three kids of lamps onto the river:"A" shines the big lamp. You have a total of 5 of those lamps."B" shines the medium lamp. You have a total of 5 of those lamps."C" shines the smallest lamp. You only have 3 of those lamps.The two bigger lamps will give a rough estimate where to find the island, while only the smallest lamp will exactly point it out.You can also send a sonar to scan for the island by pressing "D". You have an infinite number of sonars, but those are quite inexact and will indicate both where there might be an island or some big fish.When you have found the island or have run out of lamps, the game is over.Greetings to Gustaf Frding.
CommentsLol, I found myself laughing at this game, because now I'm not sure if ikea makes fun of us or not. Brilliant idea, very nice instructions and finnish accented font, bring this game to very top of the crap game listing.Also I managed to find the island, it's realy not like an island at all.Jmna Hjartdl! (ok this bit was taken from ikea katalog)
