YOOGOR Released for the ZX81 and Timex Sinclair 1000 / 1500 (16K)

YOOGOR Screenshot: 16K ZX81, Timex Sinclair 1000/1500YOOGOR Screenshot: 16K ZX81, Timex Sinclair 1000/1500This one looks real good for all users of the ZX81 and Timex Sinclair 1000/1500:

"YOOGOR" is an all-graphic, all-animation adventure game featuring Yoo in his first major role. You have previously seen him in "ZXOKO-BAN" and "IZXOLA". If not, go and download the games.

The aim of the game is to guide Yoogor to his lost shield and to bring him back with his shield to his castle. There are 4 major difficulties to do that, 1) the constant threat of falling, 2) the secret of gates opening, 3) the selection of the safest path to go ahead and, 4) the various traps along the way.

Xavsnap. "TRAIN RUSH" is available at http://zx81.ordi5.free.fr/.
It is a fast arcade game in which you must cross the USA from east to
west.

"http://www.ts1000.us" has extended the program contest for

Check out the HYDRA, Game Console Starter Kit, XGS Systems, and the new Game Console Course

It may not be immediately clear what the XGameStation team offers, but they've been creating tremendous proprietary kit systems for a few years now that help interested hobbyists learn game hardware ins-and-outs and programming ins-and-outs from the ground up. Obviously this hearkens back to the old days when we really knew the architectures of our old 8-bit systems and could really maximize their performance if we were so inclined (and talented). Definitely check these folks and their many offerings out.

Microsoft Releases Robot Development Kit - Is a 1980's personal computer-like craze right around the corner?

From "What's New Now from Ziff Davis" Newsletter (commentary below the excerpt):
http://www.pcmag.com/article2/0,1895,2071091,00.asp

Microsoft seems to have won over skeptical robot developers with the release of its new Robotics Studio product. The product's pretty neat, it lets you program real robots, or virtual instantiations of them that live inside your PC. Even better, it's free to download and play with - you'll just pay when you actually use it to control an autonomous mechatron of your own design. Our story is chock full of details on how Microsoft won over the robotics community, what's new inside the software, and where to download it yourself, for free.

Help create a new Vectorzoa Vectrex game!

Spike's Sea Snap Safari: Concept ImageSpike's Sea Snap Safari: Concept ImageThe prolific homebrew GCE/Milton Bradley Vectrex game developers, Vectorzoa, known for cartridges such as "Logo", "Star Sling" and "Spike's Circus" (which I've mentioned previously on Armchair Arcade) have an interesting way for ANYONE to contribute to their next game, "Spike's Sea Snap Safari". While label art and level design contests are popular at AtariAge, this is one of the few times that I've seen one for a non-Atari system.

This looks like fun and hopefully some of the Armchair Arcade faithful will take up the challenge and report on their results. From the Website:
