Its look like its been a 4 level demo a With Baggers in Space (im is currectly looking into a Jungle tune those time) and a 4 level demo with Warhawk (where im tweeked the Atari tune to been used 6 channels in the title tune). There is various other next game.


Both is from Micheal Ware, which also did the original C64 game.

im ask Micheal Ware about.....

Its Micheal Ware that code the main game, but many codebase and help is from Jim, so its a joint here (both is credited as coder). But the engine have been improvede since very much by Micheal. originally BIS was originally a little techincal jetpac demo, only for me (so im could look on code and turns into Space Taxi), but instead its expanded to been a commercial game.

But im do admit, im love the game and love the controls, and did have some improve since the party. Include a nice Level Complete screen.

If you also completed the game. The ending music was from Space Taxi, hehe. Im did a lots of Space Taxi tunes for fun.

Also do you wonder, which person you playing in this game? Of course, its Jim him self :D.

Both guys are really sound! I voted for both games to win the Indie Comp at Revival but Tanglewood won.

they are do really happy with the 4th general place (as well 3nd for the retro one) they got for BIS :-).

Today im did found a crash in it, and that should just got fixed. When a game crash (should newer been happens of course), its can look something like this one. Even Micheal Ware posted that screen in the Spectrum Next facebook group….

yes, its shown (C)1982 here. The top score panel is of course some Layer 2 graphics, which got corrupted.

And yes, they have both been coders since the very old days. Jim is even one of the inverter of Spectrum Next.
