The controls on my recently released game LEAF are very different from how they are on most platformers – but they still work!

The game can be downloaded here:
LEAF is a game for the Acorn Archimedes which I started in 98, returned to and finished in 2003, never actually released, but displayed at galleries until my A3010 disk drive got tired of touring. After this it sat mouldering in a cupboard until I brought the disks to the Risc Os London Show 2018 and Rob Coleman kindly restored it. You can now download it and run it in an Archimedes emulator. I’ll be looking into releasing physical copies for collectors and a version for those running Risc OS on Raspberry PI’s shortly.
I’m particularly keen to see if anyone actually starts making levels with it, but I guess that’s optimistic.
GETTING THE EMULATOR WORKING
The emulator that I’ve been using is Arculator – download from here
When you unzip and run it, you get a message about missing roms. You can download them from here
I chose riscos3_10.zip , but the other versions may well work as well.
You next put the contents of that zip in the appropriate folder of the ROMS folder. I chose RiskOs3.1 so I put it in the RISCOS3 folder.
You next have to tell Arculator you’re running RiskOs3
Leaf was created on an A3010 which has this CPU type:
After that, you can use the disk menu to load the LEAF disk image!
