This sounds interesting. Will it be a direct port of the Amiga version or are you intending to use the PC / SNES version for assets?

A few of you have said there are plenty of colour but I personally find the palette on the first level anyway a bit to bland. The VGA version is so much better in that respect.

A few things I'd like to see fixed if possible:

- Ability to walk and shoot at the same time
- Annoying 1 hit death, would a life bar be possible, even 3 bars to take 3 hits.
- In shooter sections an ability to turn round and shoot backwards as at present its near impossible to dodge enemies from behind.
- Possible better use of colour, especially in the first level. Would it be possible to use the VGA assets from the PC port?

As for music, personally I like the original Amiga music so perhaps if you go CDDA music I wouldn't change it to much.

It's weird, that this game is the way it is on the Amiga.
Clearly someone knew his tech, but the design is so different from the SNES version.

I mean, apart from the toxic palette, what's the reason the protagonist looks so different here?

As far as im aware, the Amiga version was lead version and the rest followed.

I think the Amiga version is the best one.
No need to change gfx or Paula audio.
Well, I think/hope an option to choose between original Paula audio and the CD quality one could be easily made available?

That way everybody wins.

PS: by the way, I've just noticed this thread exists, so I guess my recent news submission isn't needed anymore; sorry, I should have made a forum-wide search BEFORE posting :-\

choice between CDDA and original Modules in game menu is another possibility
