Two productions from 2020
The waving hair on the impaled head in the Plus demo gets me every time!

Hi @Arnaud ,


Is this finished or do you plan any more work on this project?

Finished, i wanted to make a demo closest of 16 bits version, but there is not enough sprite hard to draw larger monster. There is no real interest to continue.

How difficult would it be for one of our plus emulator experts to add more capability for additional hardware sprites, bit like some have done with the spectrum community and spectrum next or whatever its called.  It could be like amstrad plus ++ with support for 32 or 64 or 128 hardware sprites do it would be possible to develop games like this.  Obviously it wouldn't run on real original hardware but could be put onto hardware fpga solutions.

Never quite understood the appeal. Why not just do a PC game on the CPC (or spectrum) style and be done with it?

I know what you mean, my thought is what I guess would be a relatively minor enhancement to existing functionality based on extending existing calabities.  I can only assume back in the early 90s it would have been expensive to do but easy now.  Maybe someone who understands this better could chime in.
