Thank you for the review! I have to admit, it is a very fair assessment of the game :)

Allow me a little back-story...

During development, I was persuaded to enter the game into the ZX Dev Media Remakes competition, imposing a tight deadline... so despite many nocturnal coding sessions and a neglected partner, expectations had to be lowered and planned features were cut! :( Your review picked up a number of these missing features, sadly left out due to time constraints.

While I'm happy I even managed to make anything vaguely resembling GTA on an 8-bit micro by the deadline, my annoyance at the cuts was severe... so your prediction of a sequel is bang on! The extended edition (Rival Gangs EXT) will address most of the omissions you noticed, particularly some of the more frustrating ones which I'm happy to say have already been rectified or improved upon. The remainder are at the mercy of the machine's memory and processor limitations, but I'm confident of a much improved experience regardless.

I'm keen to read any further suggestions / criticisms, and would suggest the game's development thread on Spectrum Computing for these (though I will also check back here periodically)

Cheers!

If you entered it into a competition, I seriously hope you won :D

Thanks for the background & the outlook. I'll give the extended edition a spin for sure!

Me again! :D

The extended edition Rival Gangs EXT was released yesterday to mark the ZX Spectrum's 40th anniversary.

Hope you can find time to give it a go!

Congratulations for getting it out! As it's now a commercial release, I doubt I'll play it, personally.
