Great Giana Sisters Remake!!!

Giana's Return!!!

Latest News:

" Beta test five is done and the sixth betatest should start soon. This one is thought to be the last internal beta test if everything goes straight. Chris Huelsback has been contacted, so we might be able to get the original "The Great Giana Sisters" Soundtrack as additional candy "

Going for the original music, nice!

It's not available for download yet but the screen caps look fantastic - very true to the original concept.

With this, head over heals, prince of persia and many others in the past, the remake hobby scene is doing ok.

Let's have more!!!!!!

I'd like to think this is what an A1200 version would have looked like.

I found that site and just assumed it was for the PC - doesn't make mention of "gp32" obvious.

My Bad. :hoo

Looks like they've just ported the Graphics from the PC version directly.

After searching the site, they explain:

"Giana Worlds (Jump'n'Run game for Windows, 20 levels only, never finished. Giana's Return is the from scratch recoded FINAL of "Giana Worlds" since the coder dropped the work on Giana Worlds). The homepage linked also contains 3 Giana Sister clones for DOS"

I assume many of you allready know about this, but if you liked the music in Giana Sisters, you should definitely download this: http://remix.kwed.org/?search_id=854

That link is dead, but I have a feeling you are refering to the song "The Great Giana Rastas" by Makke.

Akira I can't understand why it doesnt scroll properly for you... the PC version works fine here but granted does look blocky compared to the gp32 version which is lower resolution.

The PC version from me scrolls nicely for me too. Allegro (which it seems it uses) though does seem to be quite hungry for resources at times.
