About The Developers

As our third project in our Game Prototyping class, we had about a month and a half to prototype a full 2d game for our final project. Our professor had us choose at random from a select group of old consoles.

Our newly formed group pulled out the ZX Spectrum. Yeah we didn’t know what it was either. Forget what you know about 80’s nostalgia. The ZED X spectrum was a British console from the 1980’s with popular games such as Dizzy - The Ultimate Cartoon Adventure. Our goal was to create a game with the same resolution and color codes as the old console. The specky had a total of 8 colors, and only two could be overlapped at one time, so don’t complain about our art.

We pulled a console out of a hat and pulled a game out of our ass. But don’t worry, Dr. Small’s never goes near there.
