Apenao – Star Wars – The Old Republic

Nobody knows how, but Apenao got the official license from Lucas Arts to produce the ZX Spectrum port of their latest blockbuster in the Star Wars franchise, a MMORPG (won’t tell what it means ’cause I always mix up the initials). The problem was that they are quite unflexible when it comes to deadlines, and the time Apenao had to develop this game was minimal. And it shows. Luckily, Apenao managed to extract the most important aspects of SW:TOR and gave full priority to them, so they are completely implemented. So the game lacks some things from the original, but the essence is there: the exciting light-saber duels between Jedi Knights and Lord Siths, complete with power-ups and character level growth. And, of course, you can’t play this alone, as this is a MMORPG. May the force be with you, young padawan! (sorry, I had to say that).

Summary

Q controls the Jedi Knight. P controls the Lord Sith.

Absynthe_boy – Washing Machine Simulator

This is the kind of entries I enjoy most. A good, nice simulator. And, for the first time in history, a great Washing Machine Simulator. In the author’s own words, «Presenting the first washing machine simulator for the Sinclair ZX Spectrum, the most realistic and complete laundry simulator yet written. Featuring three different washing machines, 4 wash temperatures and 3 different types of clothes you can wash this is the ultimate in clothes cleaning gaming excitement. Never before have laundry and gaming been married so successfully as in Washing Machine Simulator. Realistic sounds during the filling, wash and spin cycles. Amazing animated graphics. Superb reality and playability. Literally minutes of fun for all the family». And it doesn’t come short at all. I haven’t seen such a faithfully simulation in years of videogaming. This is really one of the best entries we’ve gotten so far, and we have got plenty of good ones! So watch out. Cows and simulators are win. So there’s a special prize for every faithful cow simulator from now on. What are you waiting for?

Summary

Choose among the tons of options, sit back, and enjoy your simulation.

Nitrofurano – Bacaball

I love when entries come in pairs. Actually, they weren’t submitted at once, but as I’m a lazy ass and it takes forever for me to update the site, it looks like those have came arrived at once. This is the magic of procrastinating! This time our friend Nitrofurano tries to fool the judges by creating a game about cows. And he has succeeded completely. You know the drill: cows = win. At least while the Mojon Twins are the hosts. More if the game is actually crap and innovative. This one features simultaneous 4-players action in the same keyboard. Each player controls his very own cow (sadly, the four cows look the same, which may cause some trouble) playing some kind of 4-way soccer. A player scores if he hits the ball and afterwards that ball goes to the edge of the screen. Each player has to defend his edge. Choosing which player you control is, therefore, very important: the left and right players have shorter edges to protect so they play with some kind of advantage. So go grab three friends and have hours of fun! If you can’t grab three friends, the only way would be to somehow mutate and develop two extra sets of arms and hands, so you better find people.

Summary

Well, WASD controls player 1, TGHF controls player 2, IKJL controls player 3 and cursors controls player 4. If you manage to play this in a 48K rubber keys Speccy please send us a picture.

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.

Ben Rapier – Watch the Pot

This one has come unexpectedly (maybe we got used to the excesive amount of hype our previous entry got before being released) and with extra crap-factor due to the fact that Ben sent it to the wrong email address. The game opens with an awesomely digitized opening screen which shows Dr. Who in a woman costume, which leads you to believe that the game is going to be about trans-gender activities, but you are wrong in such belief. In fact, the game is about the ancient art of boiling water so you can enjoy a good cup of tea. You know a good boiler when you meet one: somebody who can deliver a great tea time experience in the less amount of time possible. And this simmulator is just about that: manage to boil the water in the pot as soon as possible. For such a noble cause you can use keys Z, X, which you have to press alternatively as fast as you can. You will literally watch the pot making the water boil thanks to the awesome animated affects Ben has added to the experience (completely unneeded as they don’t affect gameplay, but who’s gonna complain for some free-of-charge eye candy?). In sum, Watch the Pot is an awesome community game -  you can bring your friends home and spend hour after hour competing on who can make tea faster! There’s no limit in the amount of players who can enjoy this masterpiece.

Summary

Z, X - boil water.
BREAK - become a hacker.
