Ponsoft.uk website says this is a version for the Videopac G7000/G7200/G7400.
So far, there is no version for the Odyssey2 system.

Unfortunately, the game as it is now is not possible to run on Odyssey2 - it uses too much vertical screen estate and too much CPU time.
If the Videopac version turns out to sell well, I might invest the time to do a complete rewrite that runs on the O2.

The videopac version works great on Odyssey2 but the HIGH SCORE is only displayed after the title screen, You can't see your score during the game.

Great to see that people are starting to receive their copies!

That is an awesome little Splorf statue you've made there as well, what is it made of?

Thank you.
I have a very good friend. And his daughter make these things for me. Nearly every Christmas and Birthdays, I get something from her.
I have till now a Trico from "The last Guardian", 4 Blobbers from the Blobbers cover from Videopac 57, Munchkin from the cover of Crazy Chase Videopac 44, the running Turtle from the cover of Videopac 49 and now Splorf. You can see they all here:

There are also more pictures from your lovely Splorf. Its really an fantastic game with great sound and gfx. Many thanks for it.

BTW, the figure are made with FIMO. I have never seen this, but I know that they also come into the oven.
I cant do this. I am happy, that she is so creative.

Received Spaceman Splorf and gave it a go.

Very nice game! I've already played the C64 version a couple of times and this is a really nice port. Try it guys, simple one button fun!

Any news on whether an ntsc/O2 version will be made?

The C64 version of this game rocks as a time killer on my way to work, played on my phone through an emulator..


Title: Re: SPACEMAN SPLORF: PLANET OF DOOM
Post by: Janzl on July 22, 2019, 05:51:47 AM
I really hope they do. Unfortunately, after a couple of really productive years, Pond Soft has fallen almost completely silent for quite a while now. A shame really because I really enjoy their style of games & graphics.

It is possible, but may take some time.

Also would like to see this game in its version Odyssey ;)

I think Andreas (Pond Soft) said they will work on the NTSC version when the UK-PAL are almost sold out.  :(


Title: Re: SPACEMAN SPLORF: PLANET OF DOOM
Post by: Janzl on July 27, 2019, 05:34:47 PM
I sure hope theyll still be developing because they have been very quiet for about a year now. Shame, they were one of my fav developergroups on the C64.

Is this ready to go?  I do not know how to get you the money :(


Title: Re: SPACEMAN SPLORF: PLANET OF DOOM
Post by: Doug on May 17, 2020, 05:01:22 AM
Still no NTSC version? I may order the PAL version if it's not happening


Title: Re: SPACEMAN SPLORF: PLANET OF DOOM
Post by: VideopacBelgium on May 17, 2020, 03:24:32 PM
The programmer said that he will not work on the NTSC version until all 50 copies of the PAL version have been sold.
The videopac version works great on Odyssey2 but the HIGH SCORE is only displayed after the title screen,
You can't see your score during the game.


Title: Re: SPACEMAN SPLORF: PLANET OF DOOM
Post by: Doug on May 17, 2020, 07:47:30 PM
What do you think are the chances of all 50 being sold?


Title: Re: SPACEMAN SPLORF: PLANET OF DOOM
Post by: VideopacBelgium on May 17, 2020, 09:06:24 PM
No chance. No requests for months  :(


Title: Re: SPACEMAN SPLORF: PLANET OF DOOM
Post by: TomBeck on May 17, 2020, 09:33:16 PM
Such a wonderful game. Made with so much love for our system and only 27 were sold.  :(

Buy this game people. It rocks!  8)

I also have the C64 edition and the 2600 version is on its way.


Title: Re: SPACEMAN SPLORF: PLANET OF DOOM
Post by: Doug on May 18, 2020, 03:17:23 PM
OK put me down for one. And I hope you put me down for a discount on the NTSC one if it ever comes out :)


Title: Re: SPACEMAN SPLORF: PLANET OF DOOM
Post by: cjherr on May 18, 2020, 03:42:11 PM
As long as it plays correctly on an Odyssey 2, I can deal with the score issue. I'll take one. Let me know price with shipping, and I'll get the money on it's way.
