With all the stress and anxiety in the world at the moment, it’s nice to unwind with an old school video game. In this week’s Floppy Friday we take a quick look at a couple of games – Nibbly ‘92 and Bubble Bobble. I used to play Bubble Bobble back in the day on my ZX Spectrum, but whatever skillz I may have once had have totally disappeared, as you’ll see. If you want to check out the previous episode, here it is. I’ve also created a playlist, in case you want to use you want to use it to watch future episodes as they come out.
I changed a few things, this time, in that I managed to set up a tripod holding my phone which allows a much better camera angle. I probably need to work on some of the screen colours – probably due to the lighting – but we’ll see about that next time. I also decided to show one “known” floppy (that I’d uncovered beforehand) and then one random one. In reality, though, I ended up going through a few randos before finding one that was playable. I decided to edit out the dull bits, as we already saw too many non-playable games last week.
If you’ve had fun watching this video – or have suggestions on how to make the series more interesting – then please let me know. I’ll be back next week with the ramp-up to Autodesk University 2020.
