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 (https://www.cpcwiki.eu/forum/index.php?action=profile;u=1952) 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 :)

Cool but not sure I get the reason for it.I thought it was really nice in Mode 0.

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.
