Madam Blavskja's Carnival Macabre 48K Edition


Madam Blavskja's Carnival Macabre 48K Edition is Daniel Gromann's port to 48K

of Fabián Álvarez López (Adban de Corcy)'s classic 128K game.


The original 128K edition of the game was released by Adban de Corcy in 2002.

The 48K Edition was created using optimisations of the code invented by various authors.

As a result, it not only contains the whole original edition, but also features various

enhancements, such as a custom-made title screen, a total of eight in-game tunes

and a special Game Completed screen. Furthermore, the player

is given a choice to play either the original game or with extra rooms.

The former produces a faithful rendition of the 128K Madam Blavskja's Carnival Macabre.

The latter enriches it with five additional rooms and some new guardian classes and sprites.


Ian Rushforth collaborated with Daniel during the later stage of the project,

making significant contributions to its various technical aspects,

providing a new title-screen tune and valuable input to the Readme.
Fabián Álvarez López kindly supported the release of the 48K edition of his game
and provided a description of the original rooms (which was not included with the 128K edition)
and some current comments.
The 48K Edition was released in March 2020, eighteen years after the original 128K game.
