While preparing the Special Edition of Brunilda for RetroMadrid, we thought it would be cool to improve that version over the already published one.

Metalbrain got to work and, as only he knows, optimized the screen drawing routines to the limit, making the scroll way smoother everywhere in the game.

On the other hand, Wyz took the game music and moved, touched, remixed and modified everything necessary to extract the best possible sound from his own player.

Two tiny bugs were also fixed: a colour changing mushroom and an out of place apparition by Brunilda.

And finally, a pair of english mistakes were fixed, and then AugustoRuiz reviewed the whole translation to make it sound more natural.

Today, a week after the party, we put this "remastered" version at everyone's disposition. You may download it from the game's card. Do it, it's really worth it.

We would like to present a new and old game... well, we are not crazy, it is really just like that!

Around 1991, our friends Acme and Mikomedes wrote a game for the Spectrum which got lost in the sands of time, until, just a year ago, they recovered it and made it work.

As time passes by for everyone and everything, they also decided to create a new version, updating most of the aspects of the game by using the new tools for programming Spectrum games, and taking advantage of the 128K models. So that is how 2 new games in 1 were born here at Retroworks:

  • The Chard (MIA 1991)
  • The Charm (2014)

«Long time ago, where the sun softly raised above the leafy forests and the day just counted a few hours. In misty, shadowy lands. Our hero, who can now be mentioned as such, whose name was then strange, Sir Oup, hanged on a gate that gave entrace to King Chardy's castle. The king had requested his presence...»

If you want to know more about the story, go to the game card... Oh! And it will be available to buy in cassette format, with a really nice cardboard box, at Retromadrid 2014!

Here is the physical edition of Brunilda that we will sell at RetroMadrid 2014. Due to the great reception of the game, this time we want to offer a valuable edition with some extras. It consists on a handcrafted box and contains:
 

  • Brunilda the game in cardboard box that includes the tape with the game and its manual of instructions.
  • A pair of figures of the monks of the game, from Retropixeleadores.
  • An envelope of clues, sealed.

This edition is limited and numbered. It will be for sale in Retromadrid 2014 and in our e-shop if there is stock left after Retromadrid.

New update for Brunilda that fixes two bugs that had been reported:

The not correspondent messages when examining map objects, and a new one in version 1.2 with arrows position at fights.

All bugs reported are now fixed, so we hope this one will be the final version.

Thanks for your patience and your bugs reporting.

We're still impressed by the reception given to our "Brunilda" (thank you very much, guys!), and have been working to solve a couple of bugs found after game release.

The bugs fixed from the version originally published, are the following:

  • Tile corruption in caves (only present in TZX files, not the TAP ones).
  • A place at the village that allowed our companion to block our way.
  • Memory corruption when songs were unpacked.

And we also added a package with complete source code.

Grab it from game card!!!

As an early gift from Santa Claus, we want release our new game today: Brunilda.

A game for 128k Spectrum, which was conceived as interactive fiction for PC but was never ended, and in the end has become an adventure game for Spectrum with a huge map to explore, and a very different development from the original planning.

We hope you like it and enjoy playing as much as we have enjoyed programming it.

You can download it from its entry.

The history starts right after you got your memory back in your previous adventure. That scroll you found turned out to be a music score containging the beats of what seemed to be a brief melody.The dim light in the hall didn't let you see which melody was it; so you lighted up a candle and held it near the scroll.

Want to help our intrepid adventurous again?

 

 
The download is available at its card

 The heat of the flame had revealed the hidden message. But it also provoked something unexpected. A huge light comes from the scroll, as your name appears...

After finishing his mission, Teodoro decides to go on vacations to Russia to get some relax, and will also use the chance to perfect his knowledge of other languages.

In other words, we've updated the download in the card to fix a tiny cosmetic bug and also add the russian version of the game, kindly translated by Jerri.

We think it's a good idea to share the game's source code, as there is always something you can learn from other people. And even if you just want to waste some hard disk space, you can grab it from the game card.

Happy hacking!

No, it's not like he was fired from the court and got a job as a stripper. It's just that both source code and game map are now available from the game card. If you're not afraid of code or spoilers... go ahead and take them!

...but now he can read the keyboard in a more proper way, so it shouldn't have any more problems with russian models. Thanks to Shiru and Jerri/AF for mentioning the problem. Also, the key to end game has been moved from M to G, because the old location was too close to the action key. Thanks jevilon for the warning.

That's all folks, now just go to the card and download again if you think the changes are worth it.

Some people might have guessed it, or maybe they found the YouTube video showing the game, for the rest of you, the mystery is now unveiled. The Konami game we've just ported to Spectrum was:

 

It's time to join Vick the explorer into The Valley of the Kings pyramids to find the Mystery Jewels, but be aware of the mummies!

Since the release of Gommy, medieval defender, some problems have been detected, and Pagantipaco has been working hard to fix them. So here we present you an update version so you can download and play it without fear of crashes or strange effects. What's new:

- A fire colliding with a shielded enemy won't crash the game.
- Fire thrower counters now work.
- Fires now burn the wall, and may open new ways for the enemies to go up.
- Water falls down, unaffected by obstacles that may deviate or break the rocks.

You can download the new version from the Game card

Special thanks to Gandulf, Jumping Stack and Shadow Maker for telling us about the problems.
