Will need some rework since is kinda big (around 200k) and did it in a creative sprint, though.
@Simone
If we have enough disk space I'll put something in...probably with a nice 256 or HAM8 image as the game starts up. It won't fit in memory at run time though as there won't be enough.

@All - apologies I had a few too many drinks last night, normal service has now resumed.

I've done the water animation/colour cycle this morning (with a hangover).

It's not great but getting there. Part of the problem is that I know my limitations when it comes to graphics stuff, I'll try and improve it but suggestions are welcome if you have some ideas.

It does look a bit "flashy" so probably needs just toning down, less is more and all that.

Straight out of WinUAE... (What I see).

Yeah imo needs toning down a little, perhaps the difference between the starting frame colours is too much? Comparing to the arcade one, it never goes to near all blue, it always has white in part.

Yeah, you're right - I think there's a bug in the code because I've seen the same when I slowed the video right down.

I'll fix it this afternoon. Cheers Jay.

OK, so I've settled on the version in the link below...

In order to improve I'd have to invest quite a bit of time modifying the assets and I'm no expert in doing that - besides the water only ever appears on 3 rounds.

It's good enough for my standard and that's what counts.

Looks good man

My only small suggestion would be if it's possible to slow the water animation down by say 25 - 50%?

One tiny thing that may be useful to do now instead of later (it's the sort of stuff I'd forget) is to turn off the floppy drive motor after loading is finished and then activate it again when loading is needed.

Other than that it looks very good (I love the lava!), though I think I agree with DamienD - the water might look better if slowed down ever so slightly.

Yep I've slowed it down very slightly....

By pure accident I opened the last video using Windows Media Player and when it starts it adds like a gradient to the upper and lower parts to the screen - I thought...wow that looks much better, so what have I done? Added a blue gradual gradient to one of the colours in the water and it gives it a sense of depth.

Really happy with it now!

This is not a Tiertex operation we're running here so I simply wasn't happy with the previous Waterfall efforts, I had a look at how Factor 5 did in Turrican and 'borrowed' some of it.

It was still quite a bit of work (3 hours) but I'm much more satisfied with this final effort.

It's still not quite right yet but I'll get there.

Looks fantastic mcgeezer.
Perhaps you can add a bit of white in the flow now, to blend it a bit better with the top of the waterfall that is heavily white...

Yeah I'll be animating the top of the water too as that's easy to do.

It's been a good day of doing some nice stuff.

So here is our first enemy - the Drone.

Its very primitive at the moment but I need it to do collision detection, what I code for this will be repeatable for the other enemies so they'll appear much faster.

The jigsaw is all coming together now.
