Kabuto Factory – Invasion 3D

People, this one is really cool! Kabuto Factury sends in a a true, working 3D game for your ZX Spectrum! So dust off your good ol’3D glasses from the drawer (those which came with some old magazine which come with a red/blue cellophane sheets, anaglyph I think they were called) ’cause you are going to need them in order to play this game. The mechanics are pretty simple: you have to be FAST and press 1, 2 or 3 depending on which alien is the nearest. If you fail or you take so long… BANG. Needless to say, if you are not wearing glasses you won’t see a shit. And chances are that you won’t either with them on. But this is a great effort. The only problem is that glasses are usually CYAN and RED, not blue and red. But hey, good effort! And possibly one of the most original entries this year.

Summary

Use 1, 2 or 3 to shoot the approaching aliens! And don’t forget your 3D anaglyph glasses!

Salvacam – First (and last) First-Person Hamster Wheel Simulator

Fellers, this has to be the most original simulator we have received this year! Salvacam announces this is the last game in his own one-key-only trilogy, and announces that, next year, he’ll try and make two-key games. Good for him, and good for us. And now, on to the game! This game simulates a big part of every hamster’s everyday routine: running the wheel. The game goes straight to the point, and starts with the above mentioned hamster already positioned in the running wheel, ready to get into action! No useless waits (and I’m looking at you, Mr. Apenao!), no neverending intros (like in nowadays games – when you finally get into action you have already spent the only two hours you had to play beforing getting back to house chores). Just sheer enjoyment. And from the very point of view of the hamster himself. Now you will know how it really feels. Have or ever had a hamster? This game will help you sympathise with every hamster in the world! This will make you a better person! Hopefully, with more games like this, wars and hunger will end for good. Unbelievable. This ain’t just a videogame… This is a complete digital, interactive experience. I’m quite sure that, in the future, this will be considered like a true masterpiece of our times! Ico and Shadow of the Colossus my ass.

Summary

One just can’t summarize the experience you get from this game, so go and try it NOW.

He had such a big head that, if he were a *cat* he would have to toss the mice from under the bed with a brow, Part II

Apenao enters this awesome sequel (with a mistake in the title) to last year’s Mojon Twins’ entry, the infamous He had such a big head that, if he were a cat he would have to toss the mice from under the bed with a brow, which made us almost lose the compo. Apenao’s own He had such a big head that, if he were a cat he would have to toss the mice from under the bed with a brow, part II, which title is incorrectly written in the intro screen as He had such a big head that, if he were a mouse he would have to toss the mice from under the bed with a brow, part II uses a revolutionary concept of fast loading: in fact, after the loading screen, the load is 100% immediate! I really don’t know how Apenao achieved this, I hope he will tell us. The game comes complete with a great backstory, very reminiscent of the Mojon Twins style: After saving his girlfriend, our hero, Manolito Cabeza, goes to El Corte Inglés to buy her a present. The problem is, the square is full of people demanding a  more just distribution of prawns (digital or not) and, more important: the mall is closed for hollidays. Once there, Manolito discovers that a bunch of hippies are unknowingly being controlled by a group of ultra-center-wing fanatics and are being used to spread a plague of lice which will end up bringing the end of the world. Luckily, Manolito has three full packs of anti-lice liniment and is ready to save the world!.  After waiting for the title screen to get drawn (this has to be a feature in most Apenao‘s productions), you realize that the game has nothing to do with this. Great job, Apenao!

Summary

Just try not to lose your patience in the title screen.
