I made this post in the Monkey830.co.uk forums yesterday, but have decided it belongs here.
After reading many All Your Base sites, watching videos and looking at images, I went and downloaded an emulator last week.
It's not anywhere near as bad as I predicted (sure, it has the opening dialogue reproduced below) - it's basically one of those games where you work from right to left in a spaceship (or "zig" as it's called) shooting evil Natol craft out of the sky. I'm stuck on the first level.
In AD 2101 war was beginning

Someone set up us the bomb
We get signal
Main screen turn on
How are you gentlemen
All your base are belong to us
You are on the way to destruction
What you say!
You have no chance to survive make your time
Ha ha ha ha
Take off every "zig"
You know what you doing
For great justice
It has really cool music, too (wind band and organ arrangements may be coming soon...)
Today I have been an exceedingly boring person. I have done about an hour's maths revision, practised trombone for about an hour, eaten, tried to ring Finesse Photography (but received an answerphone after 20 RINGS!!! Who would be sad enough to wait that long for an answer? Don't answer that.) I worked out how to insert OLE objects in Publisher programatically, so I am a step closer to the WordArt 3.2 add-in. So a pretty boring day really. Maybe I'll do something interesting tomorrow. If I do, you'll be the first to know (unless someone else sees this page first)
