Hello, I'm Bruce and I write games for old 8bit computers using Jonathan Cauldwell's excellent Multi-Platform Arcade Games Designer (MPAGD)
I've written a few successful* games for the Sinclair ZX Spectrum and MSX platforms that have been (largely) well received including Twenty Four Hour Parsley People scoring a 10 out of 10 on Planeta Sinclair.
In my blog I am sharing lots of the code that I wrote for my games, in a way that you can use in your own games. I've commented it so that you'll learn some of the techniques I use to create interesting new mechanics and help your games stand out from the pack.
MPAGD includes lots of standard scripts, they're great to get you started, but if you're new (or just rusty) when it comes to writing code, hopefully my tutorials will help you get started and turn your imagination into awesome 8 bit games!
All my code is free to use and do with as you please, but if you find them useful please feel free to buy me a coffee ...or better still - buy or download my games :)
*successful is a very relative term in 8bit computer games
