Yes, that part is new

Will be interesting to see how many disks this comes on; considering the unreleased demo (intro / game) is roughly 3.4MB:

Besides the new game footage in the video; there's a monster that you cannot see in the unreleased demo:

Absolutely not a game I would ever like, but I love the parallax effects.

Wow- looks amazing-its a500? It looks aga. then again movement seems limited and perhaps some of the gameplay could be frustrating- but with some updates i think i will like this game- i would have adored it as a child.

It doesn't "looks AGA" in any way. It looks like "good OCS", e.g. Ruff'n'Tumble.

First of all copper is 12bit, for AGA it should be 24bit with fluent colour changing (without such visible steps).
Second palette is not too big (32 colours?), just smart used.
Third, game was planned to be released in 1990 when there was no AGA hardware available.
