What do you think about new Next games

Postby Eratosthenes » Fri Aug 07, 2020 2:15 pm

Hi there,

as it's the summer period, I'm not doing retro computer stuff so much. For some reasons I updated my board some days ago. Now I'm wondering whether I like the new software for the Spectrum Next or not.

To be honest: I'm not interested in "new" 8-Bit games. I'd prefer original Spectrum graphics to anything that look like any other 8-Bit or 16-Bit game.

Games like this are impressive from a technical point of view but they may have been provided on any 8-Bit or 16-Bit console. To me the Spectrum stuff was "strange", "ugly", "fajskfd+afnmk*", and so on. But it was Spectrum stuff.

Even though I'm impressed that this is possible on a Spectrum: To me the new software is just 8-Bit/16-Bit retro stuff like anything else for Nintendo, Sega, ...

What do you think about the new programs and games for the Next?

I think the port of Bubble Bobble is great ;-)

Yes, but it's a port. I really like to play Bubble Bobble on "The C64" or on one of my Amigas. So I think I'd also like to play it on the Next...

Is the Next version of "Lords of Midnight" so much better than the original version?

What do you think...

That's the stuff making the ghetto-graphics of the Spectrum (sometimes) look so good... :geek: :mrgreen:
