I thought I would start a new thread for various links of interest to MM/JSW fans, which do not fit into other topics. The ones I am going to paste below do not warrant a separate topic each IMO, and they do not fit into the "Useful links" category. That one is more for technical information, for links to sites which may be useful for people working on the code, designing new games or new game features, etc. The ones below are interesting, but not useful in that sense. I've come across them recently


So here we go:


I need to contact Nitta Mituaki to suggest that "JSW: The 2010 Megamix" (Hard Version) should be included in such an analysis as one of the most difficult games ever created. Some other titles (such as "strangel" or "Party Willy 128") should certainly be included, too.
EDIT:  I've just had another look at Nittamuaki's ranking of difficulty of games and I was pleasantly surprised to see that he *did* include information about the most difficult ZX Spectrum games, including "JSW: The 2010 Megamix" and "JSW: The Nightmare Edition" (as work in progress)  :D . It's just the "Party Willy 128" that he might want to add (because of the number of rooms and the individual difficulty of most rooms).

From Rufus Standish's review:


"Quirkafleeg is a reference to Gilbert Shelton’s comic strip, Fat Freddy’s Cat. In the strip, a Quirkafleeg was a strange ritual that had to be performed whenever a dead furry animal was seen. Not seeing one here, but hey, we all like our references."


I always thought that the idea was that the spikes (Fire cells) along the bottom of the room, represented cats' legs sticking up in the air (with the cats lying on their backs)?
