Here you have the playable and downloadable version from the link that you put in the comment of the video, of the mythical Livingstone Supongo from Opera Soft. I personally love screen mode 1, I think it's great to be able to play this game at that resolution. Say that there has been no human artistic intervention in its realization. Being a conversion carried out by a process that replaced the colors of mode 0 by those available of mode 1 and the rest, until completing the 16 of mode 0, replaces them with color patterns.

I played this game a lot on my speccy, but I also played it quite a lot in my early PC with CGA; and this reminds me a lot of that one... but with better palette!

This looks like an early arcade actually... How's the gameplay?

I don't quite understand how the conversion was automated, but this is very cool. I shall give it a go tonight.

Thinking about it, Livingstone Supongo could be one of my all time fav games (if it wasn't that hard :D).

@XeNoMoRPH can you edit the link so is not via a YT redirect? :)

I played it a bit last night and I like it!

The movement is not exactly as I remembered, but oh it is as fiddly as always :)

It's an intriguing idea, I've often wondered if the same could be done with some of the uglier spectrum ports to convert them from mode 1 to mode 0.
