Name that Game

Don't think anyone in particular is confirming responses, so I think we can agree that you're up etownandy (unless Space Bandits had a look alike clone we don't know about)!

That one's frustrating, coz I love the game, but every copy I have crashes when entering any dungeon except the one right outside of the starting town, rendering the game unplayable

I keep blaming the nanoPEB's disc format, but not sure if that's what it is.

 

It would be Legends II

I believe it uses sector access, so you need a real disk image. I do not believe transferring via FIAD works properly, IIRC. I know that is the case with the ToD editor, and I think I recall it on Legends II as well, but I may be wrong.

 

Great game... I play it on Classic99 fairly often. :)

Ya, that's what I figured.

 

Same with the 1985 version of Space Station Pheta (the Tad Woods Forth version) only level 1 will load from a nanoPEB 1600 sector formatted volume, Too bad too, because the 1987 Jeff Bunting version (I think it's the one that was released for FR99) doesn't allow you to load or edit levels, and most importantly (on a game that one can spend several hours playing), it does not save the high score.

 

I did manage to get a copy of the 1985 version on disk, but I assume the original was protected, as it just asks me to "insert program disk and press any key"

 

Oh well, of the hundreds of programs I've got stored on CFs, I've only ever encountered problems with those two programs (Legends II and the 1985 SS Pheta), Even if there are a couple more, I'd say is a pretty good track record for a custom formatted emulated disk.

And it's a drum roll and crash hit (Sabian of course) for Mr Sparkdrummer (I nearly played a round to blank out the daffy's - guess I should have)

This thread's awesome! Learning about so many great games I never knew existed. :love:

 

Funny how some of the rarest games on the TI look to be some of the best. Usually the other way around. :lol:

Oh no no no! When I play one of my "real iron" drum kits it's Zildjian all the way. (Even tho' I own a couple Sabian cymbals)

That was going to be my next one, so I'll let someone else have a go...

 

(and sorry, but Sabian is Canadian, so gotta promote the home grown product (ironically home grown by Robert Zildjian!!))

Ksarul - I'll have to upload it then. It is quite fun. You have to jump the frog over all kinds of obstacles moving on a conveyor belt. It was showcased as a type in program in an issue of Micropendium.

 

Digdugnate - I was the one that uploaded the image so I better damn sure know the name.
