Hi all, just a quickie - anyone remember Primesolve by (i think) minerva? I had a copy but seem to have lost it and was wondering if anyone had one which they dont use any more and I might buy from them?

Was that the puzzle game with the Heath Robinson contraptions in it? I remember playing a demo of that on an Acorn Computing coverdisc. I might have bought it, had it not a) been so schooley, and b) cost about 80 quid.

I vote we bribe :flamethrower: into writing a new version.

yup, that was it - i have tried to find the demo on the web, but it doesnt seem to have been popular enough for someone to put it on an ftp site

There was a thread/discussion about this here a while ago (Might have been on IRC, as I can't find any search results). I think poolie has a full copy of PrimeSolver, but claims it is teh suck.

I, on the other hand, do have the demo copy that was on the Acorn Computing coverdisk many years ago, and believe it is teh good.

I'll upload a copy when I get home from work.

I vote we bribe :flamethrower: into writing a new version.
I agree! Shame I don't have enough spare time to do it in :P

That would be great thanks - like you I only ever played the demo (and a while ago) but really enjoyed it and would be cool to play the demo again

Maybe I can work a mission into DeathDawn that involves you having to save a frog by dropping a bowling ball onto the head of a man sleeping on an exercise bike...

That was a great game. My old school had it on the NCs, and it provided hours of lunchtime amusement.
