Is there any plans for a GX4000 version with scrolling?
Of the 8 bits it looks the best. Even better than the heralded Nes version.

I'm amazed there was no push for it to be a GX game back in the day.

Makes me laugh how Sir Alan is so Mr successful businmen on tv, yet he really knew f**k all about gaming.

No, but the original programmer was talking about implementing scrolling on the Enterprise version


Cant paste the link here for some reason but there's a thread on enterpriseforever.com where the original programmer comments, no update since August 2020 though.
6128 for the win!!!

Can't find the topic on the forum...

However; am I the only one who likes the flip screen approach? Maybe I'm used to it, but I like the gameplay... Sort of like small chapters or something.

Cheers for link, that looks amazing, so much better than nes version and I'll say the arcade too.

Ive had the reverse of an advantage in a game. I started on Megaman 3, and really miss the slide in 1 or 2. I started with Shinobi 3, and some moves arent in Revenge. So going back to play them feels odd.

Honestly ive always thought the CPC version looks better than the arcade version. Gryzor and Renegade are the only CPC games that i consider the CPC completely owning then.

Don't know if it looks better than the arcade... The aesthetics are pretty similar.

Oh, Ikari too!

X-Contra (1994) was a nice prototype from Facehugger. A demo is playable, and the source code is available.

Had forgotten about that! Mario made me chuckle😀

On a technical level arcade is better, but if your judging them based on quality, I think the cpc artist put a lot more effort in. Arcade has cheap looking visuals.
