Have you another URL?

Hello, thanks for your interest in this game!

The small file(1.88MB) of my game has been prepared for you. You can download it now.

Works here ... if nobody does till this afternoon I will put up a mirror for you (aka...when at home again ;-)).

bye
Ron

Thanks a lot. You are very enthusiastic.

I was very stupid because I didn't know that there was a very excellent and convenient attachment facility in this forum. Thus I uploaded my game to FileDropper.com. I selected to upload to FileDropper because FileDropper doesn't need registration.

The file size of my game is actually very small. It is only a 1.88MB zip file.

Hello, don't say that.

Thanks for downloading my game! You are so welcome!!!!!!!!!

The file attachment service provided by this forum is extremely reliable. This forum is the best place for hosting this small zip file(1.88MB) of my game. No doubt!!!!!!!!

I quite like you little game, a nice puzzle one and the graphics remind me of what I would have created back in the day using the character "art" symbols.

http://www.cpcwiki.eu/index.php/Locomotive_BASIC#SYMBOL_n.2Ci1.5B.2Ci2.2Ci3.2Ci4.2Ci5.2Ci6.2Ci7.2Ci8.5D

Code: [Select]
SYMBOL 255,255,129,129,129,129,129,129,255
PRINT CHR$(255)

Areas of improvement:
* Use a font which matches the 8-bit machine
* Select music which sounds more like an 8-bit machine (it doesnt have to sound exactly like the original, but give the 8-bit feeling).

Would love to see a walk through on how to actually complete your game. Does it regenerate another level after the first?

Another really hard game! I liked the use of symbols to match, felt like the brain needed a bit of extra work there as opposed to just boxes or so. Runs great in Linux using WINE, btw. (Seems I have now made it my mission to confirm this for all the competition games. :))

This looks clever and very interesting.

I like to read essays written by intelligent and constructive critics. You are one of them.

Thanks for your opinions! They are priceless opinions!

No detailed walkthrough was prepared for players. Players are mainly required to complete all the matches in each level.

Only nine levels are in the game. These 9 levels were pre-made by me. Ha.....I don't have the technical skills to make this game generate new levels automatically.

Hello,

First thanks for playing the game.

Secondly, thanks for your valuable comments on the game.

By the way, WINE looks very useful and important in playing Windows games!!!!!!
