Sir Ababol - A new Amiga game port release for 2018!



Quote:
Great news this afternoon as thanks to a heads up by our good friend Per-Ola Eriksson, we have learnt that the 8bit game of ' Sir Ababol ', which was designed by the Mojon Twins for the C64, ZX Spectrum and NES, has appeared on the Amiga as a port by Birra, Tom and Zoltar.

This is a direct port of 8 bits game designed in 2010 by The Mojon Twins for 8 bits computers and NES. Start as internal learning exercise trying to port C source to Blitz Basic code and this is the results.

Wished this had fire button as Jump instead of UP, though!

Excellent news.

Would it also be possible to move the in game music to the title screen and have a more upbeat track playing during the game?

The title screen is disappointingly silent while the current in game music is too laid back.

Need to fix the controls and behavior of main character. He walks too fast and jumps/falls too fast at least in the video, didn't try the game on my A500 to give proper feedback.

I thought the jump fall was too fast when I first played it, but it's an odd jumping mechanic they've used.

If you tap the fire button he does fall quickly. If you hold jump he jumps higher and falls slower.

It takes a little getting used to.
