Thumbs down Rockford

Guys ...

did the game really look THAT incredibly ugly?!?!?

I can't say this is a WinUAE problem (more a chipset problem) because I have same UGLY colors on my A1000. ARGL, what a purple tint!

Something MUST be wrong here.
Unless someone can confirm this color looks the same on the original.

ugly?
That's beautiful!
no really... i hated this game still i have played it for weeks back then... and even if i'm not sure about the purple thing , i remember it use a disturbing palette and to have graphics so basic to force your imagination guess that you are escaping from a gigantic sinousoidal pillow instead of a snake. sort of...

moreover...

you ALWAYS have to start from the BEGINNING if you crash!!
Grr!
That's really awful, even if you're close to the end of the level.

Maybe I'm simply thinking too C64-ish once again.
Remember the crack of 'Aquanaut' and compare it with the clean original from Gamebase64.
Colors are worlds apart.

I played this game a couple of months back. From memory, I think it did have the purple tint. If not, it certainly was no Rembrandt!

But you guys agree with me that it LOOKS like a typical [emulator's] color error?
