Electric Adventures, The Games – Leaky Roof
This is the 31st video in a new series where I am going to highlight each of my classic games I wrote for both the original Spectravideo and MSX computers.
In this video we move onto the next program on Program Pack XI and a game modeled from the Game & Watch games I used to enjoy, Leaky Roof.

This game is fun game where you have to catch the water drops in your bucket and empty the bucket out of a window when it is full. Miss too many water drops and the room will fill up and it’s game over.
This game uses double size sprites to good effect that provides a simple but fun game to play all in Spectravideo/MSX Basic.
