Q-Tron

Postby RWAP » Fri Feb 11, 2011 4:28 pm

This is an interesting game which is marked Axel Berle (c) 1987 Gallic Digital

It looks as though it might have been a microdrive exchange program published by Sinclair QL World although does anyone else have any more details?

It is machine code and fast and furious - you have to shoot marauding aliens as they zoom around the woods. It also has a really nice title screen with the letters Q-Tron bouncing up and down individually.

Hi guys!

I am the author of this game, I wrote it when I still was a boy (17 years old), living in Belgium. Unfortunately the story behind it is not so great. I spent over a year writing it, in assembler, can you believe it? I sold it to that magazine, and they promised a cut (I don't remember the percentage, I think 25%), but they never paid me a penny. We wrote a couple of letters to the magazine, but they just ignored us...

After a few years, I was already studying Computer Science in Germany when I received a letter from a fan, who got to the last level of the game, where I published my home address. She was a girl, and she even sent me a picture.

Maybe you could send me a few screenshots, I don't remember how it looked like!

Regards,

Axel

Welcome to the forum. Axel - if you agree to this being released as freeware, we can add it to the Sinclair QL Homepage.

In any case, send me a pm with your email address and I will sort out a version for you to play in an emulator

I don't know what happened to the original screenshots in my first post! :D
