Frequently Asked Questions

Q) Why do you develop games on RISC OS?
A) We find RISC OS an effective platform that helps us to be creative and original. Some titles may be ported to other platforms.

Q)Could any of your music be licensed by us for inclusion in our own projects, or are you available for game design services?
A) Please reach out to use via our contact page

Q) Is the Source Code included in your games and may I use it in my own projects?
A) Yes, except for the free version of Mutant Penguin. Otherwise the source code is included (see !RunImage) and portions may be used as a basis for your own software. The AMCOG Development Kit provides, music, graphic, code and documentation for developing RISC OS games using the AMCOG BASIC library.

Q) Are your games compatible with the RISC PC?
A) No. Overlord, Legends of Magic and Xeroid run between 5 and 10 times slower on Strong ARM RISC PC and requires a minimum of of 2 MB VRAM. The minimum supported specification is the Iyonix.

Mop Tops requires 6MB of video RAM and faster true colour SVGA sprite operations than the RISC PC can perform.

Q) Are more games in development?
A) Yes. We are actively developing new games for RISC OS and this website will be updated with information in due course

Q) How well does Xeroid and Legends of Magic run on the Iyonix?
A) These games run at a comparable speed to the Raspberry Pi 1

Q) How well does Overlord run on the Iyonix?
A) The game has been beta and play tested on the Iyonix. However, performance is not as good as the Rasperry Pi.

Q) How about Mop Tops, Cyborg and Mutant Penguin on the Iyonix?
A) Mop Tops and Mutant Penguin run very slowly on the Iyonix with a low frame rate. Cyborg is playable but aso very slow.
Q) Are you interested in my ideas and thoughts on possible RISC OS games or software?
A) We want to develop games that RISC OS users want to play. Please e-mail us with your thoughts (See the About page for contact details)

Q) Are updates to your games free?
