Ok, first up, I had someone ask, and got this:

This will be an awesome addition to the Jaguar library with all the Jeff Minter fans we have.  :)  Good to see.

When I get this finished, everyone send Jeff 5GBP for Llamatron. 24 years later, I'm sure he'll crack up laughing.

I'd love to see people trying to play Llamatron with a jagpad instead of 2 joysticks :D.

I have this vision of a specially crafted twin joystick jagpad to play this game... Much like you need the rotary to play Tempest .

Oh it crossed my mind as well... imagine some poundstretcher discount store being raided of its £3.99 unsaleable junk and a new jaguar peripheral, complete with certificate of authenticity, holographic sticker, collectible trading card and to top it all - shrinkwrapped box - appearing on eBay for £300.00 buy-it-now or best offer.

Careful, sh3. You're approaching CJ's level of cynicism quickly.

OK, this one has sound but still needs a bit of work. Progress, though!

Who knows he might make some more freeware  :P

Good to hear the progress on this.

 

I was looking at the first message again, which I probably skimmed at work, and saw you got the go ahead from Jeff Minter himself?   Wow... that alone is a score!  :D-

 

 

Ok, first up, I had someone ask, and got this:

Kind of, but I don't see the point when there's no permission from any of the other game authors/software companies/whatever... sort of shouts "hey, we actually are allowed to do this this this one, unlike all the others..."

Weirder still was the way RGCD requested the permission... luckily those tweets have been zapped into nonexistence, because that was all kinds of comedy.

Oh. My. God.

We're finally getting to the point where I need a skunk or something.

 

Will give this some serious playing in emulation now. :D

 

Thanks for doing this, CJ. I love Robotron like no other golden age arcade game, and Llamatron is one of the very few home computer exclusives I really, really needed to have on a console. Now it's a Jaguar console exclusive thanks to you and the man of hooves! 

 

 

 

 

When I get this finished, everyone send Jeff 5GBP for Llamatron. 24 years later, I'm sure he'll crack up laughing.

I wonder if the adress is still current?

The first game I bought was by Llamasoft (AMC on the C64). When he did his Space Invaders hack (Beast Invaders), I asked him if he could send me the rom, which he promptly did. His mobile games are also really good.

 

Any chance for Revenge of the Mutant Camels on Jaguar? Not as good as Llamatron, but still a fun game on the ST/E :)

I barely have time to play your games before a newer better version is out.  Re-downloaded Gauntlet more times than I can count...

 

I'm going to tweet Jeff a photo of this loaded up on the Jag tonight if thats cool with you.  I'll check back in before doing so..

Your screen isn't centered. There's a line down the right as well.
