thanks, wow, so many games - I have to start browsing that site on my own
however, I've got several months of time before the Next is released, providing there will be an option to load games from cassettes, old school style, for an authentic experience :-)

Really fancy doing a text game on the next, sure Jim B is doing tutorials next year for ZX games. What would anyone recommend for the noob to try that would work with the next (I have a "basic"=) understanding of programming in VBA). Not wanting to use a text game builder more actual build it from scratch, but wanting avoid physics and collisions etc.

Gareth Pitchford has made a new 8-bit text adventure book covering some of the forgotten homegrown text adventures of the early 1990s made with Quill, PAW and GAC etc.
Is available in a few formats (and a free pdf file!)


Fantastic memories here.

Personally, I loved Urban Upstart. It was slow and quite primitive, but for some reason I found it really engaging. It's worth noting that it was written by the brilliant Pete Cooke, who went on to write amazing things like Tau Ceti, Academy and Micronaut One.

Oh, Twin Kingdom Valley was really good too.
