Here is a version of Yathzee (yes, the German version spells it that way), that I consider to be the best version on the Commodore 64. Its goal is "Max Score".
There are a number of things here that I would like opinions on from the community:
The ROM I chose was picked among 3 different sources:
- This WIP uses a version that was extracted from the companion disk, issued from a magazine called "Magic Disk 64". Loads directly to the original game content. ROM Name: Yathzee.d64%%
- Another ROM, Yathzee_1992_CP_Verlag.d64, has a trainer screen...which leads into the original content.
- A final ROM reviewed, comes from "Magic Disk 64"...which has a selection screen to get to the game.
In terms of speed, the obvious choice is to use Yathzee.d64 (Option 1)...but as for authenticity, what would make more sense for a publication on this site?
Additionally, this TAS doesn't turn off the sound...which causes the game to freeze, when speaking.
