The first demo was already a bit addictive, oh man this is one decent looking game.

It's a bit more than a "decent game".


I'm just wondering , and maybe Rhino can answer me...
If  this game use only 50% of cpc capacities (as he said) I really want to know how much of percent it use on the original amiga500.
Because as far as I know it was coded by demomaker from Silents...


... Maybe demomakers on amiga are a bit overrated ? :)

I was hoping we hadn't seen the last of this, the preview left me wanting much more!

Has work continued on the previous table as well? From memory the table scoring mechanics weren't yet complete....

@beb

I have not looked in, but Amiga have enough power for Pinball Dreams and much more: hardware scroll + hard sprites + blitter for lights + 68000 for maths + 1mb of RAM... they even used extra half-brite mode (64 colors) that very few games use.

@Skunkfish

The work continues, but we will not release preview updates but the full version when finished. This does not mean that advances in gfxs and other things can be published during progress.

Regards!

I think it's rather silly to look at a one-level demo and worry about things being incomplete or not working 100% :D

The British do have a way of understating things!
Until we are drunk.
I agree with @gryzor with demos, theres still plenty of good things to look forward to.

And "Nightmare":



I was afraid that the CPC palette could not give a result so faithful to the original. But finally, I am very happy with the Mac work on the last 2 tables.

Hi!
Maybe somebody can help me... To finish Beat Box I only need to implement the "Mega Hit", but I do not remember exactly what it was. I know how to get it to turn on (flashing) and it only lasts for a few seconds, but I do not know what it does, the score it gives, bonus, etc ... Does anyone know? I have been playing and it seems to be difficult to get...




Thanks in advance!

Can't really remember as my big score was two decades ago.

Even the Amiga Longplay video doesn't show what happens! Sorry!

From what version is that manual? I have the original Amiga game (first edition) which include less info.

Yes, unfortunately it does not get it. For now I know the following: It remains flashing for 20 seconds, the score shows "COUNTING" + an increasing score from approximately 500,000 to 13,000,000.
I guess when you get it up, you will be given the score that appear at that moment in the scoreboard.  But I find it strange that the counting score is increasing instead of decrementing since it does not encourage you to get it fast and in the end it is all or nothing. It would make more sense to start with a high counter and decrease it, so that the sooner you get the more points you get.

What I do not know is if those points go to the score directly, or to the bonus, and the scoreboard fx when you get it + jingle to play.

Regards!
