Cheers s2325 .. Its excellent. Even slightly more playable than the original which the makers admitted was too hard.

And i've just noticed Bounty Bob on the site too, Think i'll playtest that after.

Cheers

Hello,
first what I want to say is: Don't use direct download links.
I changed the ZIP, so please visit the website to download.


Now have fun and enjoy it

mr_0rga5m: I think that you have an old PC
But the game is limited to 10/15 fps like the original.
I adapted it from the Amstrad/Schneider CPC.

Hi Devilmarkus

Sorry for my rude comment, but for me it is unplayable.
The PC i tested it on is a AMD X2 DD4400+ gf6800 2g ram etc.. So old but not that old.
Do i need to switch to my Intel Core2 Quad Q6600 gf8600 gt 4g ram ?
I think the chunky colours that 'shimmer' on TFT LCD whilst jerky scrolling was the put off for me.
The shots of the new ver look brilliant tho. Beautiful gfx there. Cant wait for that one.

Perhaps someone could help me...
I am searching for GFX.
So I need new GFX for the part with the lava-volcanos and for the part with the flesh eating plants.
I also need animated water as GIF, cave entries and stones for the caves to jump on.

Cheers, Markus







These are the different areas for which I need new GFX. The screen-width is 640 pixels.
