@crazyc: Stay tuned cause the final release will probably contain more surprises

Nice would be different objects and enemies placing on approach section and different placing of holes in silo section. Also in silo section main building should be not destructible until you remove all other ones.

Actually I like the last point as it is because if you go back to the instructions then it's a choice because if you go for the extra towers not just the central one, you can gain points and extra planes I believe but this is at the cost of time which you may be running short of if you took too long earlier or had some mishaps getting out of the hanger

But yeah some variety on the approach might make it more interesting although I haven't played harder settings so maybe there is on those?

@Solo Kazuki: We're actually considering all these options

@Adrian Cummings: Thanks for lending us your gfx to make this port possible in the first place!

Time for some news!

We made 7th place in the 2019 Retro Gamer Nation Amiga gamer's choice awards - out of a short list of 21, which in of itself wasn't the complete list of Amiga games released during the year. It's a shock and a pleasant surprise for a number of reasons, so a big thank you to everyone who supported us!

(and of course congrats to the big winners - Graeme Cowie, Double Sided games and Richard Lowenstein)

http://retrogamernation.com/rygar-ag...game-for-2019/


In regards to the project, we had been looking at making a major overhaul to both the graphics and gameplay to better implement modern gameplay conventions, as well as take better advantage of OCS graphics capabilities. But after some discussions between Tsak and myself we've come to this conclusion:

- We're going to see if we can release the final version of 'Raid Over Moscow' fairly soon, fixing up a few bugs still lingering in the preview release as well as some final art and audio tweaks. This will be as the project was originally intended to be - a straight and faithful Amiga port of the C64 original.

- The new art and gameplay directions are going into a new project: a more modern, polished and expanded realisation of the original game, essentially a remake or 'spiritual sequel', which we're intending to look for a possible commercial release. We'll keep everyone informed as the project develops.

Great news earok. Can't wait to see how you (& tsak) will turn the game into a "modern" release/sequel/remake !

Well done guys

...and a more comprehensive list / poll can be found right here on this forum: Best Game of 2019 ;-)

No surprises though; of course Rygar: The Legendary Warrior topped the results; as it so deserved too

Sounds like a better plan; best not to mix the two IMHO

Kudos guys! I'm going to try the preview this week.

I recall vividly the holiday I was on in Somerset UK when I purchased ROD for my Spectrum. It was in a bargain bin for £1.99 or £2.99 or whatever. Initially stumbled with it but once I got the hang of it I LOVED this game and would chat for ages to school friends about how good it was.

I think it was overlooked by most?

Great game!

Great to see an Amiga port Fantastic!
