I did a test now, and it actually doesn't work. The game freezes on the first screen! :doh:

Actually the game only works on dsk format, it's possible that in a few days we will try to make it work's on M4.

An amazing project. The level of technical and presentation polish is fantastic.


After playing and the game then trying to return to the main menu screen the game does sometime crash and reset my 6128 plus. I can recreate this consistently if I start the game and then press ESC to quit, press Y and then the computer will reset.


After a bit more experimentation it looks like the game doesn't like ParaDOS being in ROM7. Revert to AMSDOS where no ROM initialisation text is displayed and no crashes occur. I guess this also might be the cause of the M4 issues.

Sorry, is there some program or similar that allows us to copy a .dsk image from M4  to a 3" disk? Any guide?

There is but as far as I remember it's also included in this rom:

It works most of the times.

Try using http and not https; I read on twitter they have some issues with some SSL clients.
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.

Guys, is the game quite hard or am I just useless? I can kill maybe one in ten baddies :D

Not you. The ennemies waves will require a rework to make the game fun to play. :(

Gryzor

I think you have to absolutely learn the waves and anticipate them by placing your ship just right before they appear... Not sure what exactly the issue is - small hitboxes? slow fire? too many shots required?

But damn it's so pretty.

TotO

For me, the first problem looks that you can't destroy all the ennemies.

Because they moves with a high horizontal amplitude, it is really difficult to shoot them with a "char" precision.
Probably, the player fire had required to have a "half-char" accuraty or a wide and rapid fire to be able to balance that.

The main ship skips pixels a bit from left to right, this makes the aiming a bit hard sometimes.
No problem though, it is awesome.

Gryzor

Yes, the horizontal speed is high indeed, but that could be fixed with larger hit boxes perhaps. And yes, it's awesome anyhow.

Carnivius

Excellent gameDunno what you guys are on about.  I'm hitting most of the enemies and many whole waves.  Are you just holding fire or hitting fire repeatedly?  The latter works for me.

My only crit is that I have to Redefine to use the joystick everytime for gameplay even though the joystick already works for the menu.

Great graphics, music, smooth scrolling, large playfield.  High quality shoot 'em up for CPC.  :)
Favorite CPC games: SwitchBlade, Stryker in the Crypts of Trogan, Turrican II, UN Squadron, Oh Mummy

Gryzor

Ohhhh wait, hitting fire repeatedly made a big difference!!!

Mr. DVG

I spend just two words to say that the game is wonderful and soon I will prepare a special dedication to this game, complete with a review (unfortunately in Italian)!

I have an observation:

"One thing I didn't understand is the fact that I thought they were only three levels (as I saw initially from a longplay on the net). Yesterday I laboriously finished these three levels, but instead of showing the final sequence the game started again with a higher level of difficulty? Is this normal or did I miss something?" ::)

There is currently no version compatible with the M4, they are working on it  ;)
