Pinball Dreams, new game from Batman Group!!
« on: 15:28, 17 September 16 »
Hi

Batman Group (creators of Batman Forever Demo)  returns this time with a game that (again) will break 8bit/CPC schemes/scenes!.

Sorry, the page is in spanish, i Just found it about 5 mins. No time to traslate!

Batman Group vuelve dispuesto a demostrar el verdadero potencial del Amstrad

"Batman Group continues to insist on demonstrating that the machine was totally wasted during the commercial life of it. And we warn. "Although it will be the game technically advancing CPC to date, is still far from reaching the true potential of Amstrad According to our estimates, Pinball Dreams will use around 40% of the potential, Batman Forever will be around 60 % while the classic commercial software rarely exceeded 10%. "

Oh I hope that's true and we start to see software that backs up this claim.
Thou shall not question Captain Wrong!

So does that mean a 64k 464 could potentially load a 42k program from Tape in 2 Secs?

I got proved that a 464 can load tapes recorded at 6500 bauds.


i tested that on my 464, Turrican 2 intro part played in 1mn05, and each level took 20 seconds to load :)

Batman Group likes to distort reality  ;D


But if they release a pinball with their flipping mode to gainz some colors, in vertical fullscreen, maybe with a scrolling, it would be very, very nice!


I cant' wait to see the result!

Converting a few loading screens is one thing, to convert the full game is quite another. Why not shots of the actual game?


Time will tell. But we're used to big promises, a few screen shots, and then nothing happening sadly.
