EgoWings - Alpha footage of a new Shoot em up on the Amiga



During these last few years Javier Alcaniz with music by Carlos Del Alamo has been hard at work on a brand new Shoot em up in development for the Amiga, with specifications only requiring an Amiga 500 (1meg). Although the screenshot above doesn't look like much, the video shows off a good glimpse of the game in action, with decent enough landscapes, enemy waves and lots of blasting to be done. For anyone wanting to play the game, there are hints of a demo release toward XMAS!

So far we don't have a release date for the full version but thanks to Per-Ola Eriksson's heads up, we are still looking forward to playing the demo during the festive season.

Here is "Beta 2" version.

It's with music in-game, but slower than "alpha".

And there's music for game made by Carlos "Estrayk" Del Alamo (mentioned in some other topic).

I like the work so far!
Gfx are cool though there's some room for improvement (especially that sea tile and cleaning up some dithering ), concept art looks amazing and music is really good! Alpha demo moves perfectly but Beta is a bit dissapointing in that aspect (due to the inclusion of music perhaps?). I'd suggest to do what's necessary to improve fps at all costs. Is this AMOS?

AFAIK it's AMOS. Beta have more than only music, e.g. there's (laggy but it is) score counter and more bullets on screen.

Music and GFX look good, AMOS seems to be holding it back though, I am afraid.
The tunes may be taking up too much memory, I see they are 156KB and 47KB respectively.

A suggestion if I may, different colouring of player bullets and enemy ones, it gets confusing sometimes.

Cool pixels an msx. FPS is something to work on here. But looks promising.

I really enjoy this type of games, and the chipstyle music is VERY encouraging. A good game with crap music ruins alot of the enjoyment, so Im very pleased that you have a solid musician on the team!

With regards to the FPS issue; how does it play on a faster machine like A1200 with the rather common acceleration of 030 cpu?

Either way, this looks very promising!
