Its certainly a pretty game for a speccy. We certainly need more of this on the CPC. Well done to the developers and I hope you bring us this game soon. IS it written in z80 or C?

Just registered, so hi!

It uses z88dk10, as asm code on some parts. Source code will be available pretty soon. Of course if anyone want to port it, he is indeed welcome!, but I really want to do it, with the help if SyX when possible. Because I want more games from churrera to CPC, as the churrera itself. Its a great framework! But since mode 1 uses so few colours, I hope to use Mode0. For sure, that's meant to lose some details, but surely game will gain lots of colour. And I really love it :)

Sounds great, but let SyX please finish the ACMEDOS first. IMHO that's way more important.  :)

Welcome to the wiki Nightwolf. We're a friendly lot here on the CPC, and we're short of great new games too.

I think if there was a CPC version of the Churrera engine, then more mojon twins games would come to CPC easily. At a minimum converting the graphics and recolouring them as appropiate (mode 0 or mode 1).
I've always wondered why the supply of games from Mojon Twins dried up suddenly a few years ago. I've long suspected it was because of the negative reaction to their later games (they were too formulaic and too similar to their previous games, and the MODE 1 graphics lacked colour). I hope this isn't the case and we will see some more CPC versions of their games.
