To be fair and just, I didn't do "Sprites" actually, more like additional graphical patches.
Also a few suggestions or slight corrections on the backgrounds here and there (but not really big stuff)

TotO did a far more impressive job on the whole palette and backgrounds IMO.
Love what he did on the 2nd level, was the one which needed to be fixed the most.


For the  1st level : the sky, the leafs in the trees, that's a nice job as well.

Good choice to simply skip the Grey into pastel blue too. it gives more coherency on the whole ensemble...
And the more bloody arena of Level4.

To be honnest this games was a bit hard to work with graphically because the enemies' sprites system reduces the number of displayable colours for the Background/screen.



on my part I hope you like Drax (minor edition) and "maria/nna 1.28".
Was quite difficult for me.
First because I went to hospital.
Then because limited palette ans Mode0 on small surface can be tricky.
And really not easy to do nice looking boobs (not sure I managed it actually) or even realistic body shape.



Also nice to see I participated for 2 "X-Mas" releases, (alongside TFM too).

Not that bad for a lazy loudmouth incapable of any coding.
But yeah, not as impressive as those big demos we can see on Amstrads these days. :-[

Still I should grow a bigger white beard (I already have the belly).


ho ho ho !

Devilmarkus

I like the sprites much, you made. :)
And also TotO did a great job with the background scenes. :)

the  new background scenes with the princess and drax have a spanish feeling to my opinion.

you mean the princess has hairy armpits ? :o



Victoria Abril Hairy Armpits!


i think it comes from the spanish data compression, perhaps.




anyway :
English game
German Code
French graphics
Spanish compression

some interesting articles, I guess...

@Palace Software...


Look at this proud and mighty CPC6128 and those flat cables...what where they using with it ?
Shame they still sticked to humble 464 specs...


Best job Ever, and this is not Steve Job... oh wait, the guy is named Steve... :laugh:

Funny (or tragical) :
QuoteBut it wasn't just the models that caused problems. The violence was also an issue, especially in Germany, where Palace was dragged through the law courts. "It got banned, then we got the ban reversed," explains Leinfellner. "None of the German lawyers could play the game well enough to do the super slash decapitation move in court, so the judge couldn't see what all the fuss was about. A few weeks later they hired some young kid to play the game in court and then we got banned properly." The game was later released in Germany with its onscreen blood changed from red to green – a fate that awaited many other violently themed games in the future.

Seriously, Germany...
What happened to you in the 80's ? :o 
You used to have a warrior soul before that.


I mean :
QuoteA few weeks later they hired some young kid to play the game in court and then we got banned properly.
Is that a joke ?

In USA they only removed the boobs on the cover, lol...(not sure if better actually)




(sorry German freunder... couldn't resist)

Gryzor

If I were that Steve I would have that photo framed above my bed or something :D


Btw, "fucking 464"? Tsk, tsk, tsk.


(also, please do remove the remarks about Germany... I know you're just making fun, but others may be offended).

Easy to explain: The German Empire lost WWII, culture and people got wiped. Since that time Germany has no peace contract and its puppet government is ruled by the winners of WWII due to secret contracts. People living there still believe all the propaganda in the news and just don't wake up. That's it I guess.


But back to topic... I really like the Retro Gamer article about the Barbarella Barbarian remake

Death Sword? Really? Heck this sounds like sissy-wizard-speak! (not to say sissy-xtyfour-ish!)
Barbarian, now that sounded tough and, well, manly!
