Re: Why not make a VERTICAL game? = Sideways colour scrolling!

I agree Dave, this is perhaps jumping the gun a little. We haven't even had a vertical shooter like this yet - there's so much amazing, untapped potential to this incredible new phase of the Spectrum! The Bifrost engine (and derivatives) is just amazing!

OK, I don't think I've made my idea very clear and people be missing the point of what djnzx48 and I are proposing.

Sounds like a good idea - I made the same suggestion previously in the Old Tower thread.

Re: Why not make a VERTICAL game? = Sideways colour scrolling!

Let's not forget this experiment from a couple of years ago that looks promising, but never got implemented into a real game. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wE1KylKQDrQ That is great, but it's not true horizontal colour scrolling. All the colours are in horizontal bands, with black gaps between th...

Re: Why not make a VERTICAL game? = Sideways colour scrolling!

Hey thanks for the welcome guys! :) I am such a fan of you both! Dave has made so many great games! Bean Brothers is just amazing! :) I love the Bifrost games! :) on the other hand I’d rather see people put their energy into making a proper vertical scrolling multicolour shmup. My idea to rotate the...
