[Plus/4 Graphics] Robocop PETSCII
« on: July 29, 2020, 23:23:16 PM »
Hot on the heels of the C64 Robocop PETSCII a few days ago, comes the first ever Commodore Plus/4 release by Arkanix Labs!  This features the same Robocop PETSCII by w0rm, but recoloured using the more extensive Plus/4 palette.  For a bit of added value, I've covered the C64 tunes by Jonathan Dunn using TED, the chip that generates the sound on the Plus/4.  Obviously I've had to *quickly* learn the differences between the C64 and Plus/4 to be able to port the code!

The source code and all data and work files are included in the zip archive. You can find the actual PETSCII screen on the disk image.

You can download the package here:
www.arkanixlabs.com/downloads/robocop_petscii_plus4.zip

The release now has it's own entry on Plus/4 World:

For those without an actual Plus/4, we recommend YAPE as an emulator.

Only want to hear my Plus/4 'TED' rendition of Jon Dunn's 'famous' title music?  Try this:
