Zombie Calavera Prologue

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone!

 

Five years ago I saw this game made for Spectrum by The Mojon Twins, and I was so impressed that I asked for permission to port it.

 

Well, life got in between, and finally Yesterday I started porting it, and here is the fully functional game freely available (as the original was also).

 

Not only for Colecovision, but also for MSX.

 

Enjoy it!

Hi Nanochess, nice job porting this to both systems. Seems like an amazing Spectrum game if you ask me. Revo ported it to the SMS just today.

Hello Nanochess and everybody,

Could you be interested by a physical version ?

I really like the graphic style, it deserves a box version, don't you think?

Nice game, however it's normal when a bat dive over you, you're get stucked into underground ? I wonder if I found a glitch...

It's right. You can jump out of it, and in thinner floors it makes you to drop out of screen.

Although I ported it, I would need to ask for permission to the original authors The Mojon Twins before saying anything.

This is a video of the SCC version of the game.

And this is on an WebMSX, I used one of my new ideas, C-BIOS installation.

So this is what MSX colors look like for real on an MSX2 or up.

I've an MSX2 and the colors should look almost the same as MSX, so the purple color isn't right. I'll put up a picture once I load it on my Flash cartridge.

As you may know we have already published uwol and ababol of Mojon Twins. I don't think there will be a problem.

If you want we can publish the MSX version 2 ! We'll publish our first game on this hardware very very soon.

Not cool profiting selling carts of a free original game if you don't post openly the digital rom first.

Our versions of Uwol and ababol were not available for free on Coleco since the games have been entirely reworked, improved etc.
For the games of Nanochess, if he wants to make the roms available at the same time, we have no problem with that.

You are wrong ! Uwol is improved from the original game.  For example you had levels you couldn't get out of because an arrow was missing on the ground. You also had display bugs or unjustified deaths. All this is fixed in our version.

 

The gameplay of Ababol is far better in our version since we have corrected issues with playability, element layout etc.

 

You just have to read the making of to know this kind of details.

A few Improvements here and there.

It does not make that behavior less questionable.

You have the right to have your opinions. We paid Mojon Twins and the developer. As long as the creators and the developer are happy with it, and as long as ColecoVision fans are happy to have a physical version for us, we're fine.
