Nemo 59 is programming in Turbo Pascal on Amstrad CPC a software : a hardware sprite editor for Amstrad CPC+, and much more. I invite you to go see his youtube videos and read his posts on CPCRulez.

He also wrote a pascal framework (TP-tools v0.2 with its documentation), the objective is to have a v1.0 with more pascal units, for Amstrad CPC and CPC+. TP-Tools v0.2 is actually organized in 4 units :

  • UGraph.inc : graphics management
  • USound.inc : sound management
  • UKBoard.inc: keyboard and joystick management
  • UAsic.inc : ASIC CPC+ management

Other pascal units will be added in the future v1.0 (UCrt, USprite, ...).





PunyInform v2.3 by Fredrik Ramsberg and Johan Berntsson to write text adventure games

-

PunyInform v2.3 by Fredrik Ramsberg and Johan Berntsson is a library written in Inform 6 to create adventure game (pure text, no graphic support contrary to DAAD) using the Z-machine virtual machine which will run on 8bit computers (or more recent computers too). PunyInform has a parser, knowing of common verbs and a framework to write adventure games.

PunyInform is based on the Inform 6 library written by Graham Nelson. Its goal is to make easily adventure games in Inform 6, with a manual describing the differences between the official library and PunyInform..

Games using PunyInform can be compiled in z3, z5 and z8 format (z3 being the best format for 8bit computers, other formats have more features). Compared to the Inform 6 library, it means that there is no support for the Glulx virtual machine but z3 format is important as Inform 6 doesnt support it.

To compile games written with PunyInform, you should use the Inform 6 compiler maintained by David Kinder. Binaries are available on if-archive. PunyInform needs Inform v6.34 (or more).

They are tutorials to write adventure game with PunyInform (end of the page).

To try your game after compilation, you can use WinFrotz by David Kinder, to create map easily you can use Trizbort.
