Hyperspace 4 from Cobra Soft / ARG (1984), by St├ęphane Deliry and Vincent Jacquot.

Special routines - impossible to transfer to TAP file with the usual tools, the program was left as WAV format for Euphoric, use Euphoric's virtual tape player (F1 key in Euphoric).

3 parts:
intro from 0 to (around)0'59
Game 1 from 0'59 to 5'27
Game 2 from 5'27 to 9'07


Inlay scanned at 200 dpi only due to memory limitations on my computer !
Nothing on inlay_b.
Sold 130 francs.

The program uses special routines using both fast and slow speed. The WAV file has been kept.
- [hypersp4.tap]: Dom managed to handle the non-standard routines (mixing fast and slow speed!),
and made this file, similar to the original program.
See Dom's analysis of the tape format: [Formats Exotiques _6_.pdf]
- [hyperspace4_intro-jeu1_deprotege_bug_corrige.tap]: cracked TAP file (1st part).
The Basic code is in clear, and a bug in the program has been corrected (see below)
- [hyperspace4_jeu2_deprotege.tap]: cracked TAP file (2nd part).

Ah, Hyperspace 4. That's not what I'd call a good adventure game despite some interesting things.
The first part is a classic adventure game, but... There's no interpreter: you have to enter exactly the string needed to make the actions ! "nord" is obvious, but "delivre prisonnier" isn't that much... More, some doors lead to death and they are randomly set at the beginning of each game ! Absolutely no interest. And even worse, there are bugs in the program: don't buy the rope ("corde") in the FarWest game, the program will consider you don't have it. Except this, the graphics are OK.
The second part is more interesting, reminds me a little of "Hacker". You have to collect items in your house, avoiding an enemy, with a very limited time. Sadly, playing the 2nd part requires finishing the 1st one. Annoying, so I joined a DUMP file for Euphoric. Rename it DUMP, put it with the EUPHORIC.EXE file then start on the command line "euphoric -r".
