This site is home to the many programs I have made. There are games and applications for Windows, Web Browsers, Java, Cybiko and Amiga! About this site:

So far this month:
Cavern Rescue! - Browser Game
Browser version of the Java/.Net game below! Quick summary - Avoid the aliens and find the hostages in randomly generated mazes/rooms.The main game difference in this version is that the aliens are much smarter! This version was tested using the latest version of Firefox, no idea how well it works in Chrome or Edge!
So far this month:
Fire! - Java Game
Java version of a Flash game that was on this site at some point. Adjust the angle of your water gun to put out fires!
More new stuff:
Cavern Rescue! (.Net) - Windows Game
All new! This is a turn based game loosely based on Rogue. Search for the hostages and avoid the aliens, limited vision will also slow your progress but there are collectables which will help you!
Cavern Rescue! - Java Game
All new! Java desktop version of the above!
More new stuff:
Cybiko Viewer! - Java Application
All new! A combination of all the various decoders I have made! View Cybiko files (pic,cvi,cvc), Amiga IFF images plus FLI/FLC animations and AVI's (msvc,dib). The decoders may not be complete but can view the files I have here.
Little Man Computer - Windows Application
I have remade the desktop version of LMC using C# and collected the other versions on this site and put them in one section. There are two Windows versions, one for .Net Framework 4 which should work on most Windows PC's and a bonus version for .Net Core 3.1!
More Java bits:
Spring Forward! - Java Game
From a FreeBasic competition entry > Flash (not sure if it was ever put online?) > Java! This time travel puzzle game has you jumping between seasons to collect rings! This version has a tweaked interface and other minor fixes.
Some Java adventure RPG games! These are ports of some of the Adobe Flash games that were on this site:
Adventure for Breakfast! - Java Game
Explore a small town and complete various tasks to progress in this RPG / adventure game!
Adventures with Numbers! - Java Game
Explore another small town and help the people with various number and shape related problems in this game!
Planet Rysk - Java Game
Turn based strategy game, take control of your army and try and beat the computer in taking over the world. Loosely based on the board game Risk. Adapted from the Applet that was still on this site!
All of the above have had various tweaks and improvements compared to the original versions.
Unless I have missed anything, all Adobe Flash content except for the LMC Simulator has now been removed from this site. This is because most browsers would now not be able to load it anyway. Most of Flash content should have an alternative version somewhere on this site.
Final things for this year! In the Java area:
Deal? - Java Game
Based on 'Deal or No Deal' game, this is a Java Desktop version of an old Applet. Simple but fun!
Armour Ranger - Java Game
Turrican style platform game, a continual work in progress. This is based on the old Applet version but has been updated and cleaned up. A bit slow with large maps, but the core will probably be used in more games!
RoboTanks TD - Java Game
Java desktop version of another game from this site! Place the towers to destroy the enemy tanks!
In the Java area:
Batty - Java Game
All new! Arkanoid / Batty (Spectrum) clone! Use your paddle and ball to destroy the blocks! Five levels and multiple power ups! Little surprised it took so long to realise I had not made one of these games!
Memory Challenge - Java Game
From the web game on this site, which in turn was based on a Java Applet comes this Java desktop version! Remember the order and click on the numbers!
Drone Rescue - Java Game
Java desktop version of another game from this site! Save the stranded Invaders!
New in the Java area:
Diamond Mine - Java Game
Desktop version of the applet that used to be on this site! Collect the diamonds and avoid the boulders!
Colour Fill - Java Game
All new desktop Java version of this Stix/Qix clone featured elsewhere on this site. Fill the square while avoiding the bouncer and creeper!
Updated in the Windows Games area:
Colour Fill - Windows Game
The Java version above was based on the FreeBasic version and highlighted an out of bounds error in the FB code, this has now been fixed. Interestingly, this was flagged when the game was compiled with the '-exx' (bounds checking) switch and then run. All newer things I have made FB have been compiled with this switch.
In the Test area
Avi2Flc (D Version) - Windows Utility
Updated version which matches the Rust version below, maybe not as quick as the Rust version but it is much clearer.
Iff2Bmp Converter - Windows Utility
All new, based on the viewer below this command line utility will convert Amiga IFF ILBM files to Windows BMP files.
D source is included with both of the above. As I have gone back to using the D language for now, I have restored the guides to the Guides area and added a new one.
New in the test area:
AVI Player - Windows Utility
This program, created using FreeBasic, can play uncompressed and MSVC compressed AVI files!
Amiga IFF ILBM Viewer - Windows Utility
View Amiga IFF image files with this program also made using FreeBasic! Made because I had many Amiga IFF's and wanted a simple viewer, this one can show 8bit, 24bit and HAM8 images. There are other types/depths but could only test with the ones I had.
Avi2Flc (Rust version) - Windows Utility
Based on the D version on this site, this will convert an uncompressed/MSVC AVI file into a FLC animation. Like everyone who uses Rust, it was an uphill struggle and I had tried/given up using Rust many times over the years. However, Rust's strictness forced changes that were probably for the best, and I cannot argue with Rust's claims regarding speed and memory usage as Avi2Flc is very fast and memory usage is very low!
Source is included with all the above.
