About ENEMY 2

ENEMY is an action adventure in the style of the game Flashback. The first part ENEMY: Tempest of Violence was released in 1997 exclusively for Amiga. Unfortunately at the time the Amiga market was already dead, so that only relatively few copies were sold. André Wüthrich, the man behind the project, drew the conclusion and rejected the plans for a second part.

Some years later I contacted him and tried to motivate him for a sequel. At first without success. When I then designed new levels and confronted him with this, things took their course: André took a long thought exchange and we began to continue the story. Unfortunately the source code of the first part no longer existed and a new programming was excluded. We decided to make a continuation on the basis of the prequel. Getting out the maximum with given means. Together we reconstructed the level editor and draw new graphics. Because of the very low hardware requirements, there was a lot of headaches: the graphics should not be too big and had to share their color palette with the game figure, the shadow effects as well as the panel. Additional colors had to be patched in the main file of the game. A bit easier was the level design. We had extensive possibilities in the creation of new playing cards. In conjunction with the new graphics and the ability to define the abilities and intelligence of each character, new puzzles have been created for the player. Thus, even those who have mastered the first part will receive enough new brainteasers in ENEMY 2.
Due to the complexity and the length of the game as well as the technical limitations, the development lasted over four years. In 2013 the game was finished. We translated it into English and published it as a free download version.

A classic-style publication on storage medium with manual and box was not realistic for us, as it is still exclusive to the Amiga. On tireless pressure from some fans I calculated the potential production costs and started on A1k.org a survey - with a surprisingly positive result. In addition, I was able to buy a larger lot of DD diskettes and with Ogan Kandemiroglu I was given a well-known artist (thanks to nujack). His father, Celal Kandemiroglu, has among other things drawn covers for the Rainbow Arts games and covers for the german mag Amiga Joker. So I had confidence and gave Ogan the job. Both - a cover art and the DD floppy disks - were terms for an original production and finally fulfilled. This summer I started with the realization. The design of the packaging is consciously based on the first part - who owns this rarity can look forward to the following series:

Great Game

Looks cool crack :agree

...I've never gotten around to trying the 1st or 2nd release; but will now :great

Looks like the TOSEC guys have missed the following in their latest DATs:

a) the updated Enemy: Tempest of Violence v1.04_Easy-Play.
b) Enemy 2 - Missing in Action v1.28.

I'll drop a note in their thread ;)

I have bought the first part right after the release date. In the nineties there were no problem while finding and buying amiga games.;)

Even though I didn't write it, it's been fixed.

At least that's the only ahem positive comment we've had so far on EAB :lol

Thanks folk!
Yes Cover Art was done by Ogan Kandemiroglu.
And the box of the prequel is nowadays really rare.


@Neil79:

Yes, same here. The game received wider distribution outside German-speaking countries after Alive Mediasoft secured the rights in the UK to the game ~2 years after initial release. That's when I bought my copy IIRC. Now the game would be much harder to find I imagine, even on Ebay, as it wouldn't have sold huge numbers given it was late-ish 1990s release.

Anyway, great to see retro games still being released by devs in good old-fashioned boxes in 2016! :great :spin
