    Default Circus-MD

    Hi, after seeing a post on here when someone mentioned GINCS and put up a link and always wanting to write an interactive novel type game for the MD (well something much more complex) I thought I would give it a go. I was going to see about my own game but started to think about an old game I played on the ZX Spectrum.

    Circus was an entry in the Mysterious Adventures series by Brian Howarth and was released on the 8 bit machines of the day including the ZX Spectrum in 1983. Iíve used GINCS to provide a port of sorts (no keyboard) to try and provide a version for the MD. So far only tested on emulators KEGA and Picodrive on PSP and MD.emu on android. Iíve used screenshots from Spectrum Emulator to provide the Images used. Iíve used GINCS to provide a port of sorts (no keyboard) to try and provide a version for the MD.

    What appears to be a circus in full swing from the distance suddenly becomes as silent as the grave as you open the gate into the field. Never the less you must find some petrol for your car, so here goes...

    Version 1 Ė no sounds. Need to add more sounds to version 2, no music just some sound effects.
    Only use up/down for menus and A,B,C to choose or advance script.

    Just in case someone plays this that knows this game from the 8 bit micros the main changes.
    As no Keyboard Ė Iíve included the required commands as menu options so you wonít have to guess the exact text to achieve something to advance the game.
    Inventory Management, could not really provide using GINCS so only show inventory when a new item is picked up and will drop items after use.
