Just a practice mock up in using small tiles. 

A sort of sequel to… and… if I had worked for Amsoft I guess.  No they weren’t great games but hey Roland was sort of the Amstrad computer mascot despite the face he looked completely different in almost every game (Roland on the Ropes was likely the best game in the series but not ideal for what I wanted to do today).  The Roland in Time and Roland in Space games were poor clones of Manic Miner (a game I wasn’t a fan of to begin with) but I dunno, maybe the Doctor Who rip off of both the phone box time machine the theme tune somehow appealed to me.

Amstrad CPC - Mode 0 resolution of wide-pixels and 16 colours.  To see it doubled up with scanlines for easier viewing go to

That is some really impressive detail in the player character considering the size+pallette limitations.  I love it!

Looks lovely. I thought it was 2 player at first - took a while to realise it was the HUD.
