udgil and the cursed scroll -ZX Spectrum-

 by Andy Jenkinson


The game begins with an intro, which explains the story. The story is artfully woven around the programming technique, which is also present in the artwork, which is in fact the program! I mean Shakespeare had a play within a play, but Andy has just blown my mind with this.

Let me try to explain a little before I hand over to Andy himself. If I understand correctly, the UDG stored at the D location has has a small machine code program inserted into that location, then the UDG is used in the game to represent the cursed face of the chap introducing the game. 

The game itself starts out simply, and fairly conventionally. Guide the white ship toward the green things while avoiding the red things. See below.
