Author's comments and explanations:
Old Tower is a 2018 homebrew game for the ZX Spectrum, it features a kid that can only move one direction at a time, it must collect all coins in each stage and avoid bats to reach the end.

you can also in some levels control another character by switching over to him with the fire button. in some levels you need to position each character in specific spots to make the other character reach a certian palce.

other things include blocks that dissapear once touched, and block that appear once you fly across them.

while this run seems long, that is only due to the fact that starting up this game takes 9 minutes, the game itself is less than 4 minutes long (thanks ZXSpectrum). For the sake of watching this run, I edited out the loading in the encode.

feos: Great game indeed, and the movie is nice. The game is short, not too hard, also not too complicated, but this helps to understand what's going on. In addition, the game is made to be quite appealing - it overcomes usual limitations of ZX Spectrum and looks way better than an average ZXS game. The audience also liked it, accepting to Moons.

feos: Setting back to judging underway until all improvement checks are done.

feos: Replacing with an improvement and setting back to Accepted.

Also I found that this game is present as different versions that don't sync, and it's a free game, so here's the link to the developer site, whose version syncs.

Dacicus: Processing...
