The Lost Disks of SAM

Jaco van der Walt
Based on The Lost Tapes of Albion, a game originally written by Dave Hughes for the ZX Spectrum. With four levels of difficulty and twelve stages per difficulty level, guide Moebius around collecting the “lost disks of SAM”, a collection of games that were never released (let alone existed, with one recent exception) for the SAM Coupé. Along the way pick up some new clothes for your wardrobe, and even pick your favourite underwear colour at the start.
Redefinable controls, default are Q/A/O/P for up/down/left/right. Use the teleporters to go up and down the level, moving left or right through the screen boundary wraps your player around to the level above (left) or below (right).
I accesses the info screen, R from there to define keys. Space pauses, starts the game. Esc can be used to exit back to the main menu. Menu screen serves as a limited playable demonstration of the core teleporter concept and is used to select the difficulty level.
Hold down Esc when unpausing to quit back to the menu.
