AmigaBill played the new version in his yesterday's stream: https://www.twitch.tv/videos/424562285?t=00h59m51s. It was a blast, this game is really awesome. I would not have thought that you could enhance the free version in such a great way. I preordered the downloadable version as the shipping costs are so high. :-( I hope to get the physical release at Amiga34.

The music is totally insane! You should consider putting the soundtrack to bandcamp or somewhere.

Thanks Clydos for the support!

And thanks AmigaBill for nice review!
About that, adding the game to Amigalive that you mentioned, that would be nice at some point after release.

I have ordered it boxed few days ago. What is the main difference to 2018 version?

Thanks to both!

Appart from lot of small improvements, main difference is that now there are 3 different modes to chose while in the demo there was just one.

I'll be totally honest; not really my favourite type of game... but I can clearly see the amount of effort Cobe and co. have put into this

...and I always support active Amiga developers so purchased; great value too.

Well done guys!!!

Why do I get no music? I've extracted the files from iso to a dir on my A1200/030, then double clicked start. Only effects, no music.

edit: oh, I suppose that's only if I somehow mount the iso and play from cd as audio tracks.

Yeah, I was to ask if you have cd-rom.
As I know so far noone made tool to mount iso+wavs on real Amiga. If some of the guys here wiser than me would even pull that up it would certainly need AHI and 060 at least.

Thx for the verification. Any chance you make a version with mod playback at some point or is it out of question?

Well, ok, it's not out of the question but I won't promise anything.
I'll consider that as an possibility perhaps for the version I said I'll upload to Aminet in month or so.

It's not just that I think that Slavko's New Retro Wave is outstanding and irreplaceable but also I would have to change the way I play sfx.
Cause if you pay attention and you have your speakers setup correctly, you'll notice that sfx are played from hard left to the right and anywhere in between exactly right where the event(jump, hit..) occurred.
That is achieved by using 2 channels at appropriate levels for sfx cause when I decided to play music from cd I didn't have to constrain myself in playing sfx on just one channel that would be only hard left or right, which didn't sound right in the first place to me.
