Slightly Magic was a successful game I wrote in the 90s. If was very well received at the time:

‘Slightly Magic does what few other games do. It takes a garbage truck full of fun and makes daily deliveries!’
89% Sinclair User

‘The graphics and presentation are excellent too – full of colour and some nice bits of animation… All in all, Slightly Magic is, well, absolutely ‘magic” Your Sinclair 94%

I've reprogrammed it using Construct 2, the original graphics and remastered music. I used Construct to leverage it to as many platforms as possible, and today it's out on iOS, Android, PC, Mac and Linux. Please take a look, there are free versions available too on all formats.

Will check this out as soon as possible! I remember owning and loving the original on ZX Spectrum!

Did you decide on an OUYA version or not Colin?

Thanks! OUYA version is good to go, in that it plays well on my console. I used crosswalk and xdk plus the Construct gamepad object. I can only detect all button presses or none, which is good enough for me, but who knows? I hope to get it out in the next week or so, but until it's all done and dusted it's still not definite.

Great news today is that Slightly Magic PC and Mac editions are now available on US Amazon Indie Games Store for download.

Since I was set up on Amazon for iOS and Android I figured it was worth uploading the desktops too. I guess the game might look unusual to US audiences who aren't familiar with ZX Spectrum graphics, but nice to see it up there. Free versions too.

Finally, a little late, but that's what happens when your Kickstarter fails, Slightly Magic is out today on OUYA (free and paid). Thank you, Construct 2!

Thanks, and it gets better- Slightly Magic is now on the OUYA featured games page!

For the final OUYA version I needed full control of the OUYA gamepad buttons, so I used cocoonJS for export. Since it's a remaster of an old 90s game I added some extras like a director's commentary and a selection screen for Allister Brimble's remastered music. I think the OUYA version might just be the best one.
