Monday August 21, 2006 - Bug Hunter on Wocki's Emulation Site

Wocki has released an ADF disc image of the original Bug Hunter to his site and his ArcGB project. Wocki has also put the level codes for Bug Hunter 1 and 2 onto his ArcGB program. Wocki has also added a link between Bug Hunter and its sequel so, you can switch between the two games.

According to Wocki, Bug Hunter will not work using Arculator but will run using RPCEmu from Tom Walker.

This new version of ArcGB and Bug Hunter has been added to Wocki's Acorn Emulation CD which is available from his online shop.

You can download ArcGB, Bug Hunter and buy his CD from his site:

Sunday August 20, 2006 - Bug Hunter 1 extracted

Thanks to Holger Palmroth, the extracted version of Bug Hunter 1 can be downloaded from here for use on real RISC OS machines.

Sunday August 20, 2006 - Bug Hunter 1 released as freeware

Bug Hunter 1 freely available

If you couldn't get enough of Bug Hunter in space then you'll be delighted to know that Ian Richardson has released the original Bug Hunter as a Disc Image for use on RISC OS emulators.

If you do not own a non-RISC OS machine or you can't be bothered to set up a emulator then you can extract the disc image with the various programs available from the Internet.

I am not sure about compatibility with modern 26 or 32-Bit machines but it won't do you any harm to try it out.

Bug Hunter in Space apparently does run on StrongARM and RISC OS 4 machines.

You can download it from here.

Its sequel, Bug Hunter in Space can be downloaded for free as disc images from here or here.

An extracted version of Bug Hunter in Space for real RISC OS machines can be downloaded from here.

A extracted version of Bug Hunter (thanks to Holger Palmroth) should be available soon.

Sorry about the lack of updates but there hasn't really been anything much happening in the way of RISC OS games.

I've added the AcornGamez review of Chuckie Egg on the wiki to save you searching through the AG archives.

There will be lots more soon.

Tuesday August 08, 2006 - BOTX Site down

You may have noticed that the Blasts of the Xtreme website has been down recently. Hopefully, this will be fixed soon.


Friday August 04, 2006 - Tank Duel

Steve Scott of SasSquad, has recently unearthed an old game by his brother from around a decade ago.

Taken from Steve's C.S.A.Games post:

"It's a simple game, shoot your opponent before they shoot you. The whole game is written in Basic V, and does therefore require a high speed system to run smoothly. I guess VirtualAcorn users on a high-end PC will be laughing at how it zips along. The game is based on a BBC Micro version called Rumble, which appeared on an issue of Disc User in the late 80s, and was terribly addictive. 4 people round a BBC keyboard - very interesting!"
