Looks amazing!! You are killing it with these tiny games! How are you guys matching the arcade? Is it mostly just by watching the original like they used to for old conversions? Or are you doing a lot of data and code extraction? Would love to hear more about all that.

For Tiny Galaga and Tiny Invaders it was just watching. These games are very simple. Tiny Bobble and Tinyus have much more data and special gameplay, just watching would take too much time.

For Tinyus Bartman did a lot of reverse engeneering and handed his result over to me. So i had background maps and enemy placement which could directly be reused. He also did some rudimentary sound extraction but this was not portable to Amiga and needed manual work and extra 'art' to make it finally sound great on Paula. The enemy movement code and gameplay code was then done again by watching, with some reverse engeneering when it was not clear what was going on.

Here again the title screen (32 colors) without HUD. It was re-done by Fade1 for Amiga from the games original Print-Artwork (not the Arcade artwork).

Excellent!

The Amiga has long been due a port of this classic and I've even done some exploratory work of my own regarding a conversion.

Really looking forward to having a go at this! I would have been first in line if this game had been available back when I first had my A500. It's still one of favourite coin op games ever.
