Thank God for back up boards & twin cassettes...
Wow!! This is simply brilliant!

Sadly for me I can't make it work. I downloaded the emulator and cartridge, choose the language, the intro plays but I can't do nothing after that, only the keyboard arrows work but I can't get the game to start, nowhere to type in the commands. Any help?

Blimey - what next - how about a Sega Megadrive platform game based around the cancelled 'Classically Smiths' tour of 2018? :unsure:
Two arguably complementary side orders, recently added to the Strange,,, thread, one derivative article about why Morrissey left the Smiths to go solo:

and the other using the example of the Morrissey singer in a tribute band to explain how AI and robots work - https://www.wired.com/story/ai-diplomacy-robots/

Hats off for creativity and fun! :tiphat:
I stopped reading the Wired article at "Aligned himself with white supremacists". Where do these morons get this garbage? He briefly supported a party that was supposedly a little right wing so he's a white supremacist?????!?!! My head just exploded.
Though strictly a ZX Spectrum girl back in the day, I must say it's a brilliant idea to create an 8-bit adventure game around The Smiths!
