Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Jonathan "Joffa" M. Smith (1 February 1967 - 26 June 2010) was a British games programmer, best known for his titles for the ZX Spectrum. His games were notable for containing a large number of sprites and parallax scrolling, features which were largely unknown on the Spectrum at the time. His most notable games include Cobra, (which was a license extremely loosely based on a Sylvester Stallone film) one of the first Spectrum games to exhibit full-colour parallax scrolling and his critically acclaimed conversion of the arcade game Green Beret. A notable "trademark" of Smith's was his habit of writing his name (with "Jonathan" and "Smith" spelled various ways) as a mirror-image in his games.show more
