BOH, a brand-new game launched

Quote:
Campobasso, Italy - April 4th, 2009

EDITEL is pleased to announce the immediate availability of BOH, a brand-new game for AmigaOS 4 and Windows.

BOH is a game of exploration and action. You move in claustrophobic and dangerous battlefields searching for the Evil Masters. This no easy task not only because of the traps-packed corridors and mind-blowing puzzles, but also because of the countless enemies that the Evil Masters throw at you more and more until you discover them - at that point, you will be attacked directly by the Evil Masters themselves, the toughest of all. Although your quests are made slightly less hard by the bonuses and power-ups scattered all around the battlefield, carrying out the missions demands lots of concentration and quick reflexes.

The game features:
  • immediate & addictive gameplay;
  • immersive & thrilling action;
  • 25 challenging missions divided into 5 levels of difficulty;
  • multi-phase missions;
  • battlefields of any size and shape (also spread over multiple floors);
  • AI-driven enemies;
  • hand-pixelled 2D graphics;
  • real-time lighting;
  • atmospheric audio;
  • full expandibility (themes, missions, languages);
  • Deutsch, English, Espa˝ol, Franšais and Italiano translations.

BOH comes on a CD-ROM (containing both the AmigaOS 4.x and the Windows versions) in a plastic DVD box along with a 24 pages, full-colour printed manual (English only), at the bargain price of Ç12.50 EUR (VAT excluded).

At www.bohthegame.com you will find more information, screenshots, a 5 minutes trailer and you will also be able to order your copy.

Do not hesitate to dive into a new, exciting adventure!

Can someone grab some screenshots of BOH on AmigaOS4 so that I add them to a new HOL entry?

I can take some screenshots of BOH running in Aros if you'd like, but I don't have OS4.

Hi all,

I have noticed some visits to BOH's website from this thread, so I thought I'd give it a look

First off, thanks to all who expressed their appreciation.
A HOL entry? Wow, that's cool! Thanks, CodyJarrett! Also, thanks to all those who offered to provide screenshots. Speaking of screenshots, CodyJarrett, I hereby grant you the permission of using all the screenshots available on the official gallery. Or do you need screenshots showing also the context of the OS (otherwise, the game is identical on all platforms)? Also, don't hesitate to ask for any information you might need.

Thanks saimo. The screens don't need to show the OS running but we do need to grab them from an actual Amiga version as we can't put non-Amiga screenshots in entries.

Well, nobody would ever notice any difference because... there are none
Anyway, all the screenshots in the gallery where taken precisely on AmigaOS 4: it's the system BOH has been developed on (and that I'm using right now)
