1996 French prototype for a Plus version of the classic Stormlord game released by Hewson in 1989.


Not emulated - original hardware and software.
Please note that  the aspect ratio for this YouTube video is 16:9 but the CPC monitor
has an aspect ratio of 4:3 so you may wish to adjust your viewing device accordingly.


Is it my idea or is the only difference found in the smooth scroll?


Looks like a very early prototype, with graphics just ripped out of the original version. I assume that the moving characters are rendered using sprites, given how smoothly they appear to be moving.

Shame nothing came of it, a fully Plus version night have been very cool.


Probably so, the colourful gfx lend themselves to a nice overhaul...


Pity it was never released... even if the only difference had been the scroll it would have been worth it.


Writing a smooth scroll on the Plus is easy. Re-writing the rest of the game is a lot of work.
