DJ Puff - A 1990's game published by Codemasters gets a ZX Spectrum enhancement

Ever since the creation of Indie Retro News, we've always tried to keep you up to date on the latest game news, as and when they appear in our inbox. Well here's another 8bit game that many of you will remember, it's 'DJ Puff'! An early 1990's game that was originally released by Codemasters. So why is this game getting a mention? Well thanks to Planet Sinclair and Saberman letting us know, we've been told that R.M has released an enhanced version of DJ Puff for the ZX Spectrum.

Here's what Planet Sinclair says about this re-release.  "After Dizzy's MODs, it's now DJ Puff's turn, a game released in a very late period of the first golden age of the ZX Spectrum (1992), and, perhaps because of that, it has some shortcomings. The scrolling was bad, the gameplay weak, but above all, the graphical confusion made the game tremendously confusing. But now, the well-known Ralf (at least for those who use Spectrum Computing), has given it a new look. And the game gained a lot from it, almost looking brand new".

So, the main changes were:

  • The graphics have been tweaked
  • Fixed bugs that caused the game to crash
  • The collision system is now more generous, making the game fairer (and fun)
  • Number of lives increased to 9
  • A small text was added at the end
