Here’s the first entry to this year’s compo. Well, it’s not an actual entry, it’s just a very old game I made myself when I was a kid and that I found in a dusty tape. Its title, Run for Syrums, is pretty descriptive. You have to run until you get to the city of Syrums. You have to mash your O and P keys to achieve it, of course. But it ain’t that easy: a boulder is chasing you, so you have to run and not stop until you clear get to your destination. Besides, “someone” (probably somebody from Syrums who is not very kind of your arrival) is throwing stones against you, which you’ll need to dodge. Use the SPACE key to jump.
The game is pretty playable but comes with a good plethora of crap items: first of all, it’s completely in Spanish. Second, it will look weird if loaded in 128K mode, so make sure you switch to 48K mode before loading the game. And last, but not least, it comes with a nice password protection (against piracy?). To play the game you have to enter the password, which is kikko, and which will only work in lower case. Nice, uh?
Head for the download link. It comes with sources in a Z80 file and a couple of weird goodies inside.
Mash O and P to run.
Hit Space to jump.
The password is kikko.
