The video was great btw, but I thought the intro was rushed from scene to scene..maybe add some simple Text screens between each image with a lead up to each scene? but allow the player to press space to skip or press fire. I know this is extra work etc..just a suggestion none the less.

breakdown of my suggestion

Ocean Screen above if usable, the "presents", " A Denton Design Game" "Intro text: !938, Somewhere in the (insert Place), "First image: Rhino", "Second text: Will our hero (Inventive name here) survive?", "Third image:rocks falling", "fourth Image(Lady sitting down avoiding the stampede)", "Third Text: We need to escape this living hell and make it back to our time!!", Fifth Image : (Cannbals screen), then title screen, but rather than it falling from the the top..have it fade in?.

I think this will give it some back story diet lite I know..but rather than one image changing to the next shows no narrative at the moment.

Now an extremely tall order, will the play-field area of the main game remain in the little window or it it possible to 2x the size?, I'm sure you already know in some cases that the Amiga ports sometimes got bigger screen coverage then the Atari ST counterparts..but hey it's more than likely asking the impossible just a thought

again amazing work none the less and looks exceptional ..
No idea dude, I don't appear to have it. If I have room for it, I have no objection to squeezing it in, so if you could send it again mate, that would be appreciated.

To be honest, whilst I appreciate the feedback over the intro, I don't really want to go too much to town with it, because its something people will look at once or twice and then never display it again.

Lets face it, its not competing with a Psygnosis intro any time soon, and in all honesty, the style of game doesn't suit me doing anything really 'snazzy' with it, more effort would be better spent on the game.

As for a larger screen, can't and won't happen because I don't have any kind of control over the graphics. I simply wait until the Atari ST screen has been drawn and updated, and then convert that realtime to the Amiga. The low res graphics would look horrific if I bumped the scale up, and really, i'm getting a bit sick of looking at the game to be honest, i'm of the mind I just want to finish it now, its taking too long

Glad you like it though, its taken some work, but its been worth it and your Graphics lift it up
