"Sgt. Helmet Zero" Hits On Plus/4!
Posted by Luca on 2013-10-26
Sgt. Helmet ZeroYes, after three years they did it again!

Exactly three years ago, we've learned how a 48K long game can be squeezed in less than 16K with no loss overall, either in graphics'n'sound or in terms of gameplay. Its name was Uwol, and the guys behind that conversion did a really great job. Could they do better than that?

Eheh they could indeed, we say, while watching the stunning results of their effort!
The man that moved the strings of graphics and code is Kichy/ASN again, the artist behind the fabuolus TED original soundtrack is Csabo/LOD again, and once again the original ZX Spectrum game is another success coming from those cool guys under the well-known name The Mojon Twins! And this time there's no 16K memory limit to stay in, so why don't put down an enhanced version of the original one, with better multicolor graphics instead of spectrumesque hires stuff? So they thought, so they did! Now we have a fantastic enhanced version of Sgt. Helmet Zero running on Plus/4, with additional joystick support and several adjustments and addons here and there.

Sgt. Helmet Zero is a fast jump'n'shoot action game along 4 levels, in which you have to set free the girls which have been taken hostage by evil forces. Free all of them and you'll be allowed to exit and go to the next level. Enemies and turrets shoot at you with no mercy while jumping around avoiding bullets and deep pits, so you have to show to be the tough dude you look to really be.

Less words, more jumps, even more bullets: it's time to play Sgt. Helmet Zero!

New Programs Added
Posted by Csabo on 2013-10-22
Hungarian Plus/4 fan Gabucino (who happens to be second cousin of TGMS!) sent us a little care package that includes a few lost programs. Here's the list of new things added:
He also found a light pen of unknown origins, complete with some programs. Since we don't know the official name (or indeed if it IS an official release), this has been added with the generic name Fényceruza (Lightpen). Check it out and big thanks for these!

PETSCII Power
Posted by Luca on 2013-10-13
PETSCIIThe 31 October 2013 is the deadline for a pretty nice graphics compo previously launched at CSDb: the Plain PETSCII Graphics Competition consecrates the art of PETSCII drawing in its plain shape, color matrix and screen once background and border have been set, no special effects, no fireworks, no borders opening, just PETSCII. Right now, several fantastic works have just been inlcuded in the competition, which appears to be quite a harsh battle.

Big competitions need better berforming weapons to fight with, you know. That's the reason why Markku Reunanen (aka Marq/DKD) has developed PETSCII, a powerful crossplatform graphic tool with tons of innovative features, including smart PETSCII mirroring and rotating, copy/paste, straight conversion, multiple exporting options and so on. It works under Windows, Mac or Linux.
Ok, quite nice. But where's the intopic part? Well, just from today, PETSCII started to support Plus/4 format too, besides PET, C64 and VIC20! And further improvements are on the way!

Don't miss the experience to try this cool one, let's PETSCIIing right now!

Update! After few hours, the author added a fantastic C64 -> Plus/4 feature!
