An early stage project based on Ultimate Play The Game's classic ZX spectrum game, Underwurlde. It may turn into something more, or it may not.

This is excellent! It runs great here on Windows 10 (latest version). Any news on the progress of this project?

Thanks. It was originally written as a proof of concept for a scrolling Underwurlde with authentic gameplay feel. It's currently top of my list of projects to work on next.

Thanks for that quick reply! Well, I for one would love to see this completed. Those Ultimate games were just so amazing back in the day. This brings back many fond memories. I love the direction you have taken it in. All the best.

Cheers. Watch this space! :o)

Completely freezes comp (Win 10) upon loading, no screen loads or anything, just frozen desktop needing manual restart of PC.

Tried twice, same thing both times.

Hi, that's very unusual, sounds like it could be driver related. Is your PC up to date with all Windows updates and graphics drivers? Do you have any unusual hardware installed?

Plays fantastic, thank you

Thanks, glad you like it ;o)

Yes this is great, smooth and slick, and the pixel work is authentic and polished. Its a great POC. I love the added keys and doors element as well.

Thanks, appreciate your comments, especially about the pixel work because I'm not very good at that, hence the simple flat look.

Brilliant! Fun and frustration in equal measure, just like the original.  Really enjoyed how it initially replicated the original map before branching off into it's own. Lots of nice little touches, like the "2021" chest of drawers and the Atic Atac-styled keys and doors. I managed to escape via the upper exit on my second go, but that felt more like blind luck than canny gameplay.

Keep up the good work. You owe to it the 'wurlde to complete this one.


It wouldn't be Underwurlde without that "frustration factor" :o)

Lovely.  Such memories :) Plays really well. Thankyou.

Thanks,  glad you like it.

Great old school graphics

Thanks. I don't normally pixel, so it's been a struggle!! :o)
