EgoTrip:
Theres already a version of Rodland for the CPC: ftp://ftp.nvg.ntnu.no/pub/cpc/games/arcade/rodland.zip


Or do you want to improve on it?

MacDeath:
Wasn't Amstrad CPC Rodland's version just sluggish ?
also less content (bosses) as it was perhaps a 64K version ?


Parasol Star anyone ?


Kawaï is Japanese word for "how cute it is".

sigh:

The original CPC version of Rodland (and no disrespect to the artists and programmers involved) was in my opinion in the same category as Bubble Bobble for the CPC, where it could of been so much better. I had the game on my Amiga and loved it, but the graphics on the CPC didn't look anything like Rodland - especially the main characters(the red fairy looks as though it's sporting a mullet!) and on top of that - it's a  really slow game. I really didn't like this version especially after seeing the pacing of the C64 and Speccy versions which also included the bosses which are missing on the CPC version.

As stated before - no disrespect to the team who handled this, as there is always so much more going on in the background within game development, whether it be time restrictions, tools issues, sprite programs (they wouldn't of had access to the likes of the paint programs of now to make their jobs quicker and easier) but I felt that it was the poorer version of all the 8 bits.

I would like to remake a version with sprites that resemble more like the arcade, backgrounds, music and also the extra levels on the arcade that are missing on all versions (8 bit and 16 bit). It would be a 464 game of course:)

These are HUGE omissions in my opinion. The speed and "Missing bosses"?!?!?! The CPC version being the only one that had this :( .

Kawaii means 'cute' (sort of) in japanese, so I guess it's a good thing  ;D

STE86:
AFAIK Mame can be convinced to spit out graphics sheets can it not?

you may well be able to get the graphics to convert right from the source roms.
