Graphics (Sinclair Spectrum)
Night Raider was the conversion of an Atari ST game (originally named ‘Dive Bomber’ in the USA) to the Sinclair Spectrum. It was a World War II ‘action simulation’ that saw the player flying a Grumman Avenger out to sea to sink the notorious Bismarck.
My role on the project was simply that of creating the sprites and a number of control panel and cockpit display screens for the Spectrum. This was achieved by studying the intricate full-screen 16-colour original graphics of the Atari version and converting them to a tiny black and white character set that just managed to fit into the Spectrum’s minuscule memory space.
