Hypernoid Zero, an Amstrad CPC game by Bitplane Technomantes (Revision 2024)

-

At the Revision 2024, Bitplane Technomantes has released a shoot them up Amstrad CPC game : Hypernoid Zero (local download). If you did like Cybernoid 1 and 2 that you found too easy, then Hypernoid Zero is made for you ! But beware, it's more than a simple shoot them up, when you enter a new room, take some time to analyze it as there may be some surprises, puzzles. Don't take the low bounty option if you plan to upgrade your armament, and be aware of possibles secret rooms where some new armament could be found, but shhhh it's a secret !

The design is by Axelay and Rexbeng, programming is by Toms (intro) and Axelay, graphics are by Rexbeng, music is by Tom et Jerry.

They won the third place at the game development compo.

The video below is from Amstrad Maniaque (map not totally discovered), but there is also the video of Hypernoid Zero by Metr81 (only half of the map discovered though).

Gold Maze, an Amstrad CPC game in basic 1.1 and 1.0 by VynZ-prog

Sadly it doesnt run correctly with CPCBasicTS to be able to play online, so I removed it. I will see with Marco Vieth if we can correct this.

Released at the end of 2023, Gold Maze by VynZ-prog is a puzzle/adventure amstrad CPC game written in pure basic v1.1, you can see Gold Maze in a Youtube video. A version in basic 1.0 for Amstrad CPC 464 was released in January 2024.

On the left you can see the three treasures that you can recover with four marbles indicating when they will disappear. It's better to collect treasure as soon as possible. Below the three treasures is the player's box that you will have to position on the map in the first round. Then each turn you must rotate a box (or a row ?) and move your character.
