And its going to be free :D

Not brand new Speccy software, but, somewhat Speccy related.

Yes! I'm following this project and the idea is a stroke of genius , but I really like the early mockups, more similar to Knight Lore.



The latest snap is visually nice, but...

They need to stop pugging the Ultimate and Atic Atac names before someone steps in to shut them down...

Looks lovely.
I particularly like the frantic movement speed. Very Aticky-Atacky.

Yes, that would be a shame.
... especially since the same author was working on a Fairlight remake many years ago which was eventually shut down by The Edge. A damn shame as it looked and played really well, but unfortunately I was never finished. Hopefully he'll be able to finish this one though.

Those sweet graphics have got to come from somewhere!

Absolutely stunning re-imagining of a wonderful game!

Annoyingly though, its running at a resolution of 320 x 240 (I think!?) and looks as if its based upon 9x9 tile rooms? If it were 8x8 then conversion would be a lot simpler.

The graphics do convert well though, and some colour is even possible here and there. If it were to run as the original, with no moveable objects (not like Filmation etc), then a reasonable speed might be possible on the Speccy.

Unless of course we scroll the room by a few characters left or right as and when needed during play.

This has got me thinking if there were many fast moving iso games on the Speccy.

Would there be any chance of getting anything like close to the speed of the gameplay in the vid? I'd be quite amazed if I saw it.
