Well all the yellow is his hair.  The bit on the left is the hair draping down over the sideburn area.

Haha thanks. The tip of his weapon threw me off since the background has a changed colour...

WoW !!! Excellence !


I wonder why in the 80s they didn't dedicate this care to highly possible conversions.

The deadlines were running, sometimes only a few weeks. :(

This looks absolutely wonderful!
I'm one of those strange people that actually enjoyed the original CPC version, despite its obvious shortcomings.
But this new version looks like it will be MUCH better in absolutely every way, and I can't wait to try it!
(Actually it looks better than most CPC scrolling platformers!)

Not my favourite, but I played it a lot at school (because the computing lab, all CPC 6128; didn't have a lot of games to choose from).

This version looks very nice!
Released The Return of Traxtor, Golden Tail, Magica, The Dawn of Kernel, Kitsune`s Curse and Brick Rick for the CPC.

If you like my games and want to show some appreciation, you can always buy me a coffee.

I love the original version even if it is slower than the C64.
This looks really amazing!

Basically the CPC version only took the C64 graphics and took the code and sound from the Spectrum, explaining the flicker and the slow speed. The Speccy version plays identical!

I usually wait until the game is finished before I get stuck in, but for this I'll probably make an exception as I'm a huge fan of this (and it's sequel) :)
Currently playing on: 2xCPC464, 1xCPC6128, 1x464Plus, 1x6128Plus, 2xGX4000. M4 board, ZMem 1MB and still forever playing Bruce Lee.
No cheats, snapshots or emulation. I play my games as they're intended to be played. What about you?

Not happening! I still have fond memories of that loading screen when I was 11 years old and loading it from tape.  :laugh:

That's so nice!!! Haven't heard that tune for many years, brought back lots of memories! It looks really great, but is it harder than I remember it to be? Or just getting old? :D

In any case, Merry Xmas - and thanks for this :)

Early Troubleshooting :


- the GX4000 pad seems to be only working on port #2 on a PLUS or GX4000
- on OLD CPC the pad GX4000 won't work sadly, you'll have to use keyboard
- it's also reported that TAB + A is replaced by F + G on an OLD keyboard


Sorry for all this, that's why we do BETA versions ...

No problems with my cpc 6128 old qwerty. Very strange  :o
For the joypad it's port 1 and not 2

This is absolutely fantastic!
Head and shoulders above the old version.
I must also mention the graphics - they are beautiful.
