Scrobins 1,383 Moderator · Posted August 31, 2020 Share Posted August 31, 2020 Homebrew Leader Board Competition 2020 - Game 9: The Cowlitz Gamers' Lost Adventure Play Period: Friday, September 4 - Sunday, September 20, 2020 Download the rom here. What once was lost, now is found, and damn is it fun! With the release of the rom for Action 53, Volume 4 and in anticipation of its upcoming cartridge release, we are swapping out our final regular season game with The Cowlitz Gamers' Lost Adventure! This standalone collection of new levels modeled on The Cowlitz Gamers' 2nd Adventure is loosely based on programmer Łukasz Kur's unreleased ZX predecessor game. The goal is to climb from one level to the next, avoiding enemies and finding treasure, hidden secrets, and the means to open the door to the next stage in the limited time the clock affords you. Fans will recognize the colorful and challenging levels designed by Łukasz Kur and @M-Tee, accompanied by the fun chiptune stylings of Robi. The first two Cowlitz Gamers' Adventures (released in 2016 and 2017 respectively) were developed for the now-concluded Cowlitz Gamers for Kids Expo, an event that raised money for The Arc of Cowlitz County in partnership with Lifeworks Washington, serving people with intellectual and developmental disabilities and their families. The expo was overseen by John Hancock, Chelsea Beck, and Jonathan Rose. In honor of this being the last game before the finals of this NES homebrew competition, this month's winner will receive a CIB of 30 Years of Nintendont, a Sega Genesis homebrew by @Dr. Ludos and available through Côté Gamers.
