Pixel Scramble / Scramble Pix! - My latest FREE retro puzzle game for Windows and Android!

To all of my retro-lovin' visitors!:-

My latest COMPLETELY FREE (With optional donation when downloading, but absolutely NO adverts or In-App purchases in-game!) game is SCRAMBLE PIX for Windows and Android! (Android version is also downloadable either at the linked itch.io page below (if you want to sideload it, or are browsing on the target device), or via Google Play - your choice!)

It's a puzzle game based on (for now, others to follow!) ZX Spectrum, C64 / 128, Atari 8-Bit, Amstrad CPC, MSX, Atari ST, Commodore Amiga, Sega Megadrive, and SNES (so far!) loading/title screens and possibly also demo-scene artwork (with FULL credit for each creation, where possible!), all played in a retro TV setting!

It currently has over 4,120 (!) classic loading/title/scene art screens to unscramble, and 5 levels of difficulty, with EVERY SINGLE playthrough of a level cut up into completely random pieces, so always a challenge even to replay previously-played puzzles!

TO PLAY:- Simply click on a location/piece, and then any other piece to swap them over, until they are all correct! - If you're a bit stuck, you can get a preview / hint after 30 seconds, but each 'peek' will cost you time added to your attempt! HINT! - Pieces Stre-e-e-e-etch and distort if they're in a wrong-shaped slot - use this to figure out the rough shape of the slot where it's MEANT to go! ;)

Currently available on Windows and Android, with other platforms to follow!

I've listed this as an optional donation if you like it, and hoping that people will help motivate me to continue working on / adding to it, as an incentive! ;)

If I get support, I will be adding many more systems (ie Master System, NES, ARCADE, PC Engine / TurboGrafx, Neo Geo, etc) and even more puzzles, with (ultimately, around (or over!) 300-500 puzzles per popular system!

Away for a week, but still taking orders! :)

Hi guys! - just to say I'm taking a short break away from the Cavern for a week or so, with the family, but normal service will be resumed, and any orders sent out, a week Monday (5th August)!

Thanks for all of your support so far!

"Commodore 64: A Visual Compendium" - Highly Recommended!

Just have to mention that I'm absolutely LOVING my latest present to myself, from Sam Dyer/ Bitmap Books! I’ve been meaning to get this for a while now, and I’m wishing I’d got it earlier!

It’s HUGE! - well over 400 pages, really hefty, and obviously a real labour of love - the quality of the written content, finish, vibrant colours, and the awesome built in C= logo coloured bookmark didn’t go un-noticed either. 

Absolutely loving getting lost in it, and Sam very kindly signed it personally for me too!! #chuffedtobits

I highly recommend my C64 lovin’ friends to grab this beautiful book while they can! 


Also, in other news...  I've listed a few hundred more goodies!  :D

PLEASE NOTE - I'M AWAY FOR A WEEK.... :)

Hi All! - Please note that as part of my full-time job, I am working on a project abroad for the next WEEK, and so will be unable to post out any NEW orders until I return.

If you are happy to wait until then, then please, by all means, buy whatever you like!

If not, then please understand that I have NO way of sending ordered items prior to a WEEK MONDAY at the earliest, BEFORE purchasing...

Thank you for reading, and thank you for supporting me...  :D

11,111 items LIVE in the Cavern! - 15% CELEBRATION DISCOUNT TIME!

Well, *CRAZY* busy time over the last few days, none-stop finally adding all manner of goodies I'd photographed already,' to the Cavern! - Absolutely done in for now, but figured I'd celebrate my 11,111 (!!!) item milestone with a l'il discount!
 
So, if ordering any software, manuals, mags or books from the Cavern in the next week or so (Valid until 23:59pm on December 2nd!), just use "11K_WOW15", and a handy 15% of your goodies' cost will remain in your pocket! :) ...or 15% more stuff in your basket, I must admit I like that idea better, ha ha! ;)
 
PS - Apparently, to automatically apply the discount to an order you create, just visit using this link!:-
 
 
Thanks as always for the support guys! - and remember, it's normally much cheaper (and I will ALWAYS refund any extra paid, once sent) combined postage on larger orders!

IMPORTANT - Overseas Customers - shipping prices have increased... :(

Hi all!

IMPORTANT!...

I just wanted to bring to your attention the fact that I've been absorbing excess postage costs for my overseas customers a while now, and so I've had to reluctantly set my postage rates to industry-standard ones, and choose a slower, economy overseas delivery service to reduce the price increase... :(

Ps - If you order larger orders of heavy but maybe larger items, the postage is going to differ from the purely weight-based estimates, so again, I'll cover any excess if MORE, and if for some reason it's CHEAPER, I'll of course refund any extra postage costs...

Hopefully this is acceptable to you guys! - it was great while I could do it, but with more, and especially for smaller overseas orders, I can't really afford to continue to do it any more...

On another note, I've managed to work out a cheaper way to send eg - single and double sized jewels to the UK, so these postage prices should generally be slightly cheaper!

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Thanks in advance for your understanding, and again, if
ordering larger orders at once, the postage should
actually end up being cheaper than previously!
