Retro-ZAP! Redux: Part 3 of... um, 2.

In my last article, I wrote at length about my experience making Retro-ZAP! on my near-ancient TRS-80 Model III computer. As I described, the experience was a fun and interesting one. It provided a mix of both high- and low-points, all of which were fun to write about. What I did not expect however, was the level of attention that would be generated by a Space Invaders knockoff, written in interpreted BASIC.

Retro-Invaders! - Part 2

"That's No Moon, It's A Space-Station!"

Hey again! Time for Part 2 of my little foray into retro-system game programming. This time around, I'm going to jabber on a bit about the process I went through while actually experimenting and coding "The Idea". To bring this "Retro Masterpiece" of slow-poke BASIC code to life took me a grand total of about 18-20 hours; and that includes the time I spent mucking around trying to get the &*#%$-ing cassette port working, plus writing the various bits of test code. (Hah! Take that 3D-Realms!)

The MSX Lode Runner TRS-80 Model 4/4P Bootleg Project

Mark McDougall, of The Space Invaders TRS-80 'Bootleg' Project fame, has taken another big leap with a port of the MSX version of Lode Runner to the TRS-80 Model 4/4P equipped with a MicroLabs/RadioShack hires graphics board. While it would be cooler without the need for a hardware add-on that few collectors have (I sure don't), it's still a great technical accomplishment and a very interesting story. Be sure to check out this awesome bitmap image of all the levels in the game! (Thanks to Matthew Reed for bringing this project to my attention.)
