Drag'n'Drop 11i2 edition reviewed

Posted by Mark Stephens on 07:22, 9/3/2022 |
 
The latest edition of Drag'n'Drop (now into Volume 11, edition 2) is now available for purchase and consumption. Drag'n'Drop is a regular RISC OS magazine published every quarter as a PDF file. As I have said before, it reminds me of the 1990s style Acorn magazines and is a mixture of news, reviews, listings, and tutorials. You can buy a version with the listings already typed in for you.

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.

Archive 25:4 reviewed

Posted by Mark Stephens on 16:52, 13/9/2021 |
 

 
Archive 25:4 (August/September 2021) has arrived. This is another 56 page monster, full of news, reviews and articles. The large number of colour screenshots makes it feel even longer. I think Jim Nagel would very much approve of the high production standards of his successor. The list of authors (both new and familiar) in this edition is also very encouraging.
