Night Nurse

Packaging for Sinclair QL Night Nurse by Shadow Games Inlay for Sinclair QL Night Nurse

Night Nurse was a colourful arcade adventure published by Shadow Games where you have to guide Nurse Gray around St Spooks hospital, avoiding randy doctors and Paranoid Pete as well as the forensic flu bug.

Pick up and use objects littered around the wards in your quest for the "Golden Prescription".

Basically, you have to find out the way to have fun and get invited to the party, instead of being an old stick in the mud.

With the program logic being written in SuperBASIC, with machine code sprites for the various characters, the original version of this was quite slow. RWAP Software have improved the SuperBASIC to increase the speed and make this game playable, although it is let down somewhat by the flickering sprites.

The sprites were originally written using an early version of the Super Sprite Generator package - we have tried re-writing the SuperBASIC to use the latest version of the Super Sprite Generator package, but unfortunately, there seems to be some form of incompatability in the sprite files themselves, as they do not display on screen.
