That looks absolutely fantastic.
Lovely parallax scrolling too.

I wonder - is this using an improved version of the Galactic Tomb engine?
That was a great game, but it was let down by the speed decrease whenever it scrolled vertically.

Thank you, Ervin
The engine is not a proper improvement of GT engine but a new one, much simpler and faster.
I think that GT with this new engine soul have not had these speed decreses:

One of these days an Amstrad game dev will actually contact us about a new game! Doesn't seem to be a problem with anything related to the Amiga, C64 etc  ::)

That's a gripe I, too, have... You see people sharing on FB/Discord/whatever and hope @XeNoMoRPH (https://www.cpcwiki.eu/forum/index.php?action=profile;u=1952) will pick it up and let us know :D

Do you mean an Amstrad gamedev like me? I have always sent you an email, even when your email redirection is bouncing because quotas. You are in my press release list for any game I release.

Not sure if your complaining here achieves anything, perhaps you could contact ESP Soft instead?

I haven't had time to play this yet, but the gameplay looks (and sounds!) fantastic.

Congrats to the ESP Soft team.

Not you mate, you've been a retro gaming lifeline for the latest updates! Of that I'm grateful

I admit I'm definitely not the fastest person out where when it comes to announcing new games on CPC Game Reviews - and when I do, I can often spend nearly an hour trying to find what words to write and what images to include - but Siemb Chronicles is so good that I had to announce it on my own site the same day that @XeNoMoRPH (https://www.cpcwiki.eu/forum/index.php?action=profile;u=1952) posted the news on this forum. :)

Hi Neil79 !!!, Well, I really check your page daily to find out what's new in all retro systems, I thought that since you are here in the forum, you were observing the new game releases, I´m not a developer, but I like to keep up to date with the news that is coming out,I will try to send you emails when a new game comes out for Amstrad.
Cheers !!!  :)

Cheers that'd be awesome, I used to check this forum a lot but there's so many games coming from different systems, it's almost hard to keep up with it all now
