Duckstroma

Thought I'd start a new thread for my smaller game rather than in the BlimpgeddonX one.

Duckstroma is currently being finished on ZX/MSX over the next few weeks. Now all screens have been drawn I am roughing out the Amiga/NES versions which use a bigger screen and 16x16 tileset (instead of 8x8).

Here's a comparison

Very nice looking speccy and amiga tiles!!!
I particularly like the blue sky and clouds in the speccy version.
I had a good look to see if I could offer some constructive criticism. I've come up with nothing.

While still working on MSX/ZX versions I made quick test of Amiga graphics in Scorpion Engine.

I cannot avoid having the Ride of the Valkiryes made with quacks when i see this game, might be a good title song!

Cool. I have a soft spot for Amiga ducks, we can never have too many. I hope there will be a samurai power-up?

Not in the initial release version, but the later expanded version should have some sword action.

I just released a prototype build of the NES version.
Duckstroma
Will attempt to reproduce similar prototype using Scorpion, to see how much quicker it is to make.

If it's a NES Maker game, some form of NES Maker to Scorpion converter is planned (like what I did for Backbone), though I haven't yet started investigating the NES Maker file formats.

That'll be interesting for some that may want to make a more colourful version of their NES game. Currently looks like what took me several hours over a few weeks to make in NESmaker will take barely a week in Scorpion.

How big is the ROM size for MSX? Is it MSX1 or MSX2?
