Drag'n'Drop 11i1 edition reviewed

Posted by Mark Stephens on 07:58, 22/11/2021 |
 
The latest edition of Drag'n'Drop (now into Volume 11) was released at the recent London Show. Drag'n'Drop is a long-running quarterly RISC OS magazine published electronically as a PDF file. So you you can read it any Computer system. It reminds me of the 90s style Acorn magazines and is a mixture of news, reviews, listings, and tutorials. You can buy the listing already typed in.

Rougol November talk - RISC OS Pyromaniac update

Posted by Mark Stephens on 22:01, 15/11/2021 | ,
 
This month's talk was probably the first proper 'hybrid' Rougol meetings with 8 people in person and 25 (including the speaker) on Zoom. We were actually kicked out of our usual room into a smaller one, so 8 people worked well.

Rougol's November talk is on Monday

Posted by Mark Stephens on 07:03, 12/11/2021 |
 
Just a quick reminder that Gerph will be giving us an update on Pyromaniac developments on Monday night. If you missed his last, excellent talk (shame on you!), you can catch-up here.
 
As usual you can attend in person or online and it is free to attend.This meeting is the one where Rougol need to persuade the pub to give them the room for another year, so they are hoping to get a good in person turnout.

Amcog Games Haunted Tower Hotel Released

Posted by Mark Stephens on 08:32, 8/11/2021 |
 
The latest game from Amcog was launched at the London Show with Tony and Sophia in appropriate costume (and they sold out of copies). It is a platform game, which runs on pretty much any modern RISC OS system (including emulation) and involves lots of challenging mazes with a nice intro plot, lots of spooky music and interactive ghosts. The game can be played from keyboard or joystick. I have a copy on my Titanium, but it is certainly harder to play than Sophia made it look at the Show.
