I am so looking forward to this one... the graphics are fantastic. If it plays as great as the original one, it will be a master piece. Having the option to lower the difficulty would be greatly appreciated too...  :-\

I tried the first one and I hated it. It the typical bedroom game from the 80s that didn't go through any playtesting and as a result is just impossibly difficult, with pixel-perfect jumps and enemies placement, and unavoidable death traps.

I'll have a try in emulation before buying this one, that's for sure.

Our floppies are more difficult to find every day, that is true. There are still some NOS units, I happen to have a few at home, but they are starting to be, as you say, very expensive. In the case of our adventure, the version including a 3 inch disc is 5 euros more expensive because of that. However, I think that it is good to offer the option, if you can. In our case, it is the version that is selling the best. People seem to be more than happy paying the extra amount of money  :)

That's true, but it is written on the wall that at some point there won't be more 3" discs. I think we may experience something similar with cassettes, eventually; but for now it is slightly better.

What could be the future? Cartridges? :)

Future?., well extension type as m4 or hxc i think are all discarted to use with new games releases, because they need buy hardware apart an modify xternally the cpc.


Probably the best aproach can be made some type of these in 3 inch version. So we can reutilize broken 3 inch disk cases. Wtf.

Future is not very clear, no... that is why we offered a 3.5 inches version only and a 3 plus 3.5, all of them with a SD card ready to be used with the HxC or similar. It was quite a difficult and expensive decission, but I think that worth it at the end  :D

I would be ok for CPC games to be sold as 3.5" only. Or if they do a limited 3" run, put a 3" label in the 3.5 box for the people wanting to hunt of a spare disc and recreate it themselves.

It's just as difficult as the first game, so my advice would be to steer clear. No fun when things are this difficult.

This evening I certainly felt that I was 8 again sucking at this game so much. It is basically a revival of my experiences with the first part  :-\ Loving it though, technically is super nice. I would love to have an "easy" mode but oh well, what can I do  :laugh:

I have to agree. It is an excellent sequel to the original, and that means it is hard as nails.

I've seen people on twitter progress rather quickly, but they completed the first one; so looks to me that this is perfect for fans of the original.

Technically, it is a great game; but the fun part I think it is an acquired taste.
