known in the uk as switchblade 2.

I see it's on cpcrulez and cpc-power.

was this being developed by Elmar, or is this a hack made with prehistorik 2 or similar's engine?

...whaaa? Have never even heard of this back in the day..!


Is there a downloadable dsk on cpc-power or just the screenshots? I'm mobile so can't check this at the moment. The graphics seem pretty much old-CPC, judging on the colors used...

yes
yes
yes
all of them!
 ;D


I think/remember it is a hack from (super)Cauldron3 which is also then an updated prehistorik2 engine (but without the many PLUS stuff)... wich Switchblade 2 graphics poured inside.


Who hacked this ? Hermol is that you?


(c'est toi hermol qui à fait ce hack ?)


The switchblade sprites may be somewhat too big perhaps.
While Prehistorik 2 is quite sluggish due to too much stuffs (animated backgrounds, extra PLUS features and so on) I guess supercauldron is a bit faster/betterly implemented/optimised.


The question would be : what gameplay for what game ?
Could it simply be a switchblade2 version using this engine ?


Hermol recently did a "news" with this at CPCrulez :

voici le Striderblade (http://cpcrulez.fr/GamesDL_hack/index.php?lang=&crack=&list=&rech=strider)
 : je vous mets une preview , une petite ébauche de 2 niveaux (Face A/B).
Le moteur de ce jeu est basé sur les routines du Préhistorik 2 d’Elmar (ELMsoft) Krieger, le tout avec des gfx de Musicman.
Sorry I don't have time for the translation.




oops, perhaps Prehistorik2 after all, and for plus too, but obviously the graphics are CPC old ports from the ST version.

On CPC the colors are still the same, they changed on emulators though  :laugh:  Sorry, couldn't resist ;)

This forum has grown so large that you can easily get lost in some of its secret, well hidden parts just to discover things that were there for years :D
