Damn, that is just the deal! This should be known before the unecessary hysteria exploded.

I wonder if this is a reaction to the 'hysteria'?

Having the Premium+/Budget options for the Amiga is a wise move, no one can now complain about there being just an expensive 'collectors' version as you now have 2 extra options at reasonable prices

Of course it is possible. It is also possible to sell a t-shirt for less than 5 Euros, or 1 kg of bananas for under 1 Euro. Does not mean it makes sense or it is desirable to buy discounted stuff. Because, eventually, someone has to pay the full price. In case of clothes and fruit, its the environment and the people in the country of origin. In case of Amiga games, its the creator or people who pay fair prices for boxed copies.

Had always the idea of a mix between tetris and pipemania but have no tech skill to put it together...

Presumably a bit like this bonus level of Pipe Mania? (begins at 8:31 in the video)

Although I always found these levels to be so difficult, I think the playability would have to be refined somehow.

Also noticed some typos on the 'Help' screen, please check the spelling of the following words if not already corrected in the new release:

1st help screen:
youre is corrected to say you're
Im is corrected to say I'm
disapoint is corrected to say disappoint
peice is corrected to say piece

2nd help screen:
relavant is corrected to say relevant
Sensetivity is corrected to say Sensitivity

4th help screen:
accessable is corrected to say accessible

5th help screen:
Change text keyhole the same shape to say: keyhole of the same shape

6th help screen:
cant is corrected to say can't

The 5D version can also be 1 Disked, I used Crunchmania for exe and data plus the RTDD loader, but real coders will 1 Disk it far better than me

The new version scrolling looks more 'friendly' too, but being able to switch to 'motion sickness' mode is cool too Regarding specs, is 1mb chip minimal, like BDR was?

Roll on January 18th

I adore these observations..and corrections. Makes it more Professional. I'm already highly interested in the game. I also really, really, REALLY like the comments about the packaging. *Scratching Chin* I might buy.


I prefer box versions AND Digital. If box only, for less price, I'm cool with that. With the review I kept saying to myself, "Do this...slow there...and you'll have a better time at it." Hehe.



I, and the kids around me, don't enjoy stuff that's easy and then REALLY hard a little bit into the game. Many of the Classic games (WHDLoad) are fun to kids around me because this was considered often. So.. I'm watching and still rubbing my chin about this.


As much as I love these Logic games, I really miss Point'N'Click Adventures for the Amiga but this is way OT so I'll end here.
