Months ago i published in my website's database, lot of Intrigue Software games.
Lately wrote me the original developer of Beneath the stars David J. Smith and after kindly words he wrote:
"Once I saw Beneath the Stars on your web site, I downloaded it and checked out the emulators - in particular the Classic99. Reading the code brought back memories for sure, as I had never fully seen the source code in printed form. I did not have a printer back in 1984 - too expensive (as were all the TI-99 peripherals, disk drive, ROM cartridges etc..) and I was only able to "LIST" the code on my 14" portable TV screen back in 1984. To be able to review the code in "notepad" was amazing. After playing the game the first time in 34 years, I immediately saw what needed to be improved and bugs fixed. Your web site was most definitely an inspiration!
Now i have completely updated Beneath the stars making the game much, much faster, easier to play and enhanced in many ways! The name is "Moonbase Alpha 2019) and can run in TI-BASIC but i also compiled in TI EXTENDED BASIC using ISABELLA.
If you are old enough (like me 😉), then you will recall Gerry and Sylvia Andersons Space 1999 in the 1970's, where the moon broke away from the Earth's Gravity and Drifted off into space. Moonbase Alpha was the name of the Base Station and the Inspiration for the original title of the game.
If you would like to know more or publish "Moonbase Alpha 2019" on your website, please contact me."
Well, I think you can all imagine how happy this message made me.
Of course, now the game is online and downloadable.
Is also present a Cartridge version for FlashGrom99/FlasRom99 or burn a real cart.
(an official label is included in the .zip file of the cart version).
so, hope you will Enjoy the game!
