New arcade game: Sqij 2018 (for arcade hardware)


Another day, another release. This time it’s SQIJ again. The previous game I released was a Spectrum version of this C64 game, but here I’ve taken the Spectrum game and coded an arcade version of it – and because the Taito arcade hardware is much more capable than the humble ZX Spectrum – this game is now looking as good as it’s ever going to.

As this version is for arcade hardware most people will have to play it on the MAME emulator, but it should run on the real hardware too.

Go here to download the game, read all about the game follow the interesting links to its story.

And not only that: the ZX Spectrum version should be available on physical cassette tape in the near future, but more about that when it’s out 😉

New Spectrum game: SQIJ 2018.

My first release of 2018 is a funny one – basically it’s a remake of one of the very worst games for the ZX Spectrum. Or more precisely: this game is a remake of the original C64 game that unfortunately only received such a truly atrocious Spectrum version back in the day.

But here’s a new version that’s almost identical to the original C64 version – same map and item placements … and most importantly – unlike the official Spectrum version from 1987 this one is actually playable.
