Wow, mighty impressive game! It looks really good, and polished

I'm surprised about the quality of the music and sound effects too! It's is on par with the quality of the graphics.. I really love your engine with it's lighting capabilities. This game has it all.

I've never played HoH (shame on me, I know it's a classic), but I know I'm going to have a blast playing this version. It looks really really good. As best as a HoH remake can get, I suppose

Perfect!

Hmm, why ? If you deselect the Shortcut on Desktop and Start Menu icons it will just unzip itself into the directory of your choice and do nothing else

I put it into installer .exe because I remember getting shitloads of mails like "what do I do with this .zip file" and such :-( it is better this way.

And besides, I think it couldn't be easier to install this one. It is really simple

Make a wonderful GBA game

TBH, I didn't really. Graham had some talks with some company who bailed out when they learned they would have to get the licence from the copyright holders. So we actually never really bothered contacting anyone especially after Richard's Fairlight got canned because the original publishers wouldn't let him put it out for free.

Can I put the game on my ftp? Would save you a bit of bandwidth for your site. I would also of course put a readme directing people to your site with it so they know what its all about.

A few questions before I try this out at work....

Can you exit back to the desktop?
Does it run in a window as well as fullscreen.
Does it have closedown quickly (for when the boss is coming? )

Runs in WIndow/Full screen (Window by default)
You can exit back to desktop from main menu only.

No boss key I am afraid... but you can move it to background if using windowed mode

He commented on the RAM in this thread

Which is also the thread where I added my praise - still playing it now!!! Want to be top of that scoreboard for a long time.

Yes, thats quite an amusing and impressive emulator. I used to be able to get it to work on Win98 when I had running on a spare Hd.
