And now... Cousin Horace gets an update!  :)
  • In Chapter 1, you now start with 40 units of health instead of 20, and the medikit gives you 10 units of health instead of 5;
  • Chapter 2 has custom sound effects now;
  • Chapter 3 and 5 have been cleansed of the "ULA Plus bug", a fault in the AGD game designer which caused the game to display false colors under certain configurations, e.g. the ZX Vega;
  • all TZX files (except for the intro) have been customized with the SetoLOAD turbo loader.
The updated game and documentation can be downloaded from my website as usual.

Enjoy!

Newsflash: A user reported that when loaded on a 128K and later models, sound might get garbled in Chapter 2. I fixed the issue and tested the level to be sure there were no more. Please download the game again, and sorry for the inconvenience.

I also increased lives in that chapter from 5 to 8 to make it a bit easier.

More news!

Feedback for the updated game has been positive so far, but a recurring criticism was that the second chapter was too difficult, with many resilient enemies to shoot down. I modified it so that there are a little less of them flying around, and all of them take 2 shots to be destroyed, except for the blimp and the V-1, which only take one. You can download the new package from the usual address on my website.

This updated version will be available on tape from Bitmap Soft as well.
