# Thank you..
Do you have a speccy to run it on?

I have a 4 16k "Fun game" pack for the ZX81 somewhere. Wish I had something to play it on.

# That's nicely done.
Although I would include a 'skip' button somewhere. It's good to watch it once, but every single time?

# I would
but there's nothing to skip to ;)

# Nice but inaccurate
The data for the screen was not arranged in simple lines (as you would have expected). Instead there were 3 blocks of 64 lines, with lines 1,9,17,25 ... 2,10,18,16 ... 8,16,24,32 being sequential.

The colour was in the correct order though.

(Needs a life.)

# Yeha,
it is inaccurate, but I was going from memory. It doesn't look "proper" but it's not bad for a first attempt :)

# Woo!
First game I ever got for the Speccy for Christmas 1984 was Horace and the Spiders.

Edit: Or was it 1983? Can't remember

# I hit you tree... (this came out shortly after the fact) (& wyh)
Mike: They say that we can’t go down the hill,

Before we go we really should write a will.

Sonny:Well I don’t know if all that’s true,

Watch out for that bush, ‘cause I think it really grew.


Both: I hit you, tree.

I hit you, tree.

Mike: They say football on skis is really dumb,

Before we know it we’ll both be very numb.

Sonny:I guess that’s so, the wind’s in our hair,

You did the sitter, but baby I did Cher.


Both: I hit you, tree.

I hit you, tree.

Mike: I got flowers on my grave.

It was stupid, but baby, we seemed brave.

Sonny:And we weren’t drunk, just acting like clowns.

We didn’t see the tree, but we sure found the ground.

Mike: Don’t let them say that we can’t ski,

We were doin’ pretty good ‘til we hit that goddamn tree.

Sonny:So I put my little hand on the branch,

Thought I’d break my fall, but wound up buying the ranch.


Both: I hit you, tree.

I hit you, tree.

Sonny:I had Cher to hold my hand.

Mike: She had you then found a real man.

Sonny:I had Newt to think with me.

Mike: I had Ted to drink with me.

I went and kissed that tree goodnight.

Split my skull from left to right.

I hit the tree, I can’t let go.

My blood is dripping on the snow.

Both: I hit you, tree.

I hit you, tree.

I hit you, tree.

I hit you, tree.
