The Mojon Twins, a new development group formed by several ex-CEZ GS members, has just released a new game for Spectrum and Amstrad CPC.

FOR THE LOVE OF GODS! ANOTHER GAME? :D

No, really, what on earth is happening? We haven't seen so many new games since Imagine went bust...

OK, I can't read Spanish, but I assume this has nothing to do with the old Marsport from the 80s?
 
I'm assuming so based on the screenshots but I just thought I'd ask.

Never played the old one... but this one is rather neat, if a bit difficult. Not screen scrolling, unfortunately, but the design is well done so that you don't fall on enemies or in traps. Only problem I have is I don't know what to play first now!

I sadly admit that I'm disappointed by the one. I really liked the previous opus (phantomas saga : infinity), but this one is not as good : the graphics seem like having been quickly transfered with no retouching. The music is rather dull, and there are a lot of details that lacks polishing : the unreadable font, the music that slows down when going from a screen to another... And the gameplay is exactly the same as before, without the perfectly smooth animation.
Disappointing !

A new version has just been released fixing a bug with the random number generator that made it impossible to finish the game sometimes, as only 19 treasures would appear instead of 20.

@Targhan: come on man :) I don't think it's that bad. True, it's not as original or as polished as previous releases, but it's still a nice little game, no need to trash it like that...

I didn't mean to trash it, sorry :). But I really enjoyed the first episode, that this one is really not as good. I simply don't understand why, and I'm disappointed. It looks like it is a quick'n'dirty port from spectrum, and I'm pretty sure it is.
