This is my entry for SpeccyJam (2), that is a game jam to build a “ZX Spectrum looking” game in a week. Check the rules, although I think it is still easier than programming for the original hardware.
This is also September’s game of my [one game a month challenge](/jjm/one- game-a-month/).
The game was developed from scratch using C++ and SFML.
YouTube review: [Indie Attack 098: Accolade](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v =Kc-RmudFSwI).
- 2015-01-03: released a new version of the game including some minor bug fixes.

The game requires OpenGL.
In the menus use the arrows to move, Z (or Enter) to select.
Playing the game:
- use the arrows to move and attack enemies.
- use Z (or Enter) to drink a potion from your inventory.
