MSXdev'09 - #5 British Bob

Topic: Software

Three hours later, and the wait for RELEVO Videogames to publish their new game is over. The game concept isn't a surprise anymore, but for completeness sake we'll mention here that it's a fun old-school platform game similar to Manic Miner, with music reminiscent to Malaika. viejo_archivero unknowingly concludes this newspost with: "Everyone enjoy BRITISH BOB, and thank you very much for playing".

Congrats!! This is an awesome game. I normaly hate these kind of game controls. But is looks and feels very solid!!

Is this based on an existing concept? If not then kudo's for the original story and setting!!!!

It's a simulation of what happens when miscreants steal the queen's tea and biscuits!

I LOVE this !
Immediately the name "Blagger" came to mind, which is a game I liked very much.

Ofcourse this has much better, faster & smoother gameplay than Blagger.
Why it also reminds me of Auf Wiedersehen Monty, dunno, maybe because of the enemy movement patterns.

I think the concept is quite original and it's fun to play; smooth controls and perfect response speed, so it's easy to play but never becomes boring.

Yeah, controls are very good in this game. Compare this to Jet Set Willy and conclude we've learned a few things in 25 years.

Beard: it's *very* retro, but well executed! But try to do something more with music than those staccato tunes.. Tongue

Lobo_: I can't be perfect on everything, you know Wink, anyway I really think the tunes fit ok with the game.
