Pudding Chase

Developer: R Tape
Genre: Festive Coordination

 

Platform: Spectrum 48K
Language: BASIC

A hastily produced and vaguely festive game which involves trying to place your pixel (coin) inside the UDG (pudding) by guestimating how many pixels there are horizontally and vertically between the two. Excited? Read the review for more along the same lines.

Crap, Tapir, Slippers

Developer: R Tape
Genre: Catch-em-up

 

Platform: Spectrum 48K
Language: BASIC

R Tape has long been on a mission to prove that games written in BASIC can be half-decent. Correct me if I'm wrong, but that doesn't sound like the kind of thing we're interested in here, does it?

Wild West SpecDRAW!

Developer: R Tape
Genre: Reaction Timer

 

Platform: Spectrum 48K
Language: BASIC

You know the score; "This town ain't big enough for the both of us," a clock strikes high noon and two cowboys stand at opposite ends of a dusty road with twitching fingers.

If that sort of thing appeals to you (or even if it doesn't) then prepare to be underwhelmed.

Sokomath!

Developer: R Tape
Genre: Maths Puzzler

 

Platform: Spectrum 48K
Language: BASIC

R Tapes attempts to "combine an easy & fun game like Sokoban with some complicated mathematics, the idea being that both become more fun as a consequence." My money is on this hypothesis being wrong!

Platform: Spectrum 48K

Basically Etch-a-Sketch with the addition of ZX Spectrum Attribute Colours. A beautifully simple idea implemented in a cack-handed manner!

Genre: Ring Fondling

 

Platform: Spectrum 48K
Language: BASIC

"Aye it's great isn't it. I can picture a few spin offs of this (or cracks), one as a Lord of the Rings game called 'Touch the Ring', where you have to wear the ring while the lord of darkness looks the other way." - R Tape on the Kick The Ballboy review from last year's CSSCGC.

The Blind Spritemaker

Platform: Spectrum 48K

Is R Tape playing God with unethical scientific experiments on UDGs involving symmetry and mutation, or is it art? Hmmmmm.

PIXBIT and the maze of deadly monsters

Developer: R Tape
Genre: Gravity Maze

 

Platform: Spectrum 48K
Language: ASM

If you think a single pixel falling through a maze doesn't sound very interesting, you'd be wrong. Prepare to get hooked!

Another drink, Reverend?

Developer: R Tape
Genre: Shoot-Em-Up

 

Platform: Spectrum 48K
Language: BASIC

If you thought a fast paced horizontal shooter couldn't be done in BASIC - you were wrong. If you dared to dream it was possible, but feared it would be crap, you were right!

The Forest of Doom

Developer: R Tape
Genre: Maze & Collect

 

Platform: Spectrum 48K
Language: BASIC

An amazing storyline involving dwarf high lords, forests (of doom!) and magic tokens... is clearly where the budget of this entry was focussed!
