(Nearest neighbour should never take an average. That would defeat the purpose - which is generally to not introduce new colors or blur the image in any way.)

What was wrong with my answer? :)
Also, I agree with Gurok. I might phrase it as 'when you add two letters'. It still seems pretty easy...

I can see that - but the character design and setting predate the new Star Wars... :)
The show is on Netflix...

Bonus points for naming the game he's playing. Hint... I worked on it :P

Nope...
Rebecca and Death on the Nile are set around 1937.
This is post-WWII.

Limper, Chuckie Egg was probably going to be my next effort on the VIC. I love that game!
2T, yeah, the Amstrad version is a really nice port.

How long did it take you to make this?
Would this run on the original hardware? What storage medium did the vic-20 use?
It took about a month to make...
Yes, it would run on original hardware. Nothing fancy required.
The VIC used carts, tapes and disks. In 1982 I owned one cart, and the disk drives were expensive, so I pretty much used tapes. Memory expansion was really expensive - 16k was 175 quid - so I just had an unexpanded, 3.5k, VIC.

CW, it was hugely popular in the UK, maybe not so much outside the UK. It was 'inspired' by Miner 2049er for the Atari 800.

Nice graphics, Jim! Is there a game associated yet?

Blame Matthew Smith!
If you have the entire Hall of the Mountain King written out as note frequencies, I could. I hate transcribing music.

You can play on an emulator, or the original hardware.
(The Commodore VIC-20 is the 1981 precursor to the Commodore 64. It was the first computer to sell 1,000,000 units. It's also the first computer I owned := ).

I thought I'd pimp my latest creation here:

It's a fairly faithful port from 48k Spectrum to 16k VIC-20. :)
