one of my favorites!! excellent. The video shows 100% arcade perfect footage!! (but it's clearly not arcade because the drums stop in the arcade when the first boss arrives)

I enjoyed playing Green Beret on the Spectrum at the time. The ambience was here because of the blurring effect due to the machine limitations so you have to be hyper vigilant. And I have a memory sprites being "hudge". Not sure that this Amiga version recreate the atmosphere.

Great, one of my all time favorites on the c64.
This version could actually be better than arcade perfect. Arcade hardware was pretty weak. ;-)

Nice one. Graphics are nice. Knife sound is great and sounds same as original. The Music and other sound effects could use some tuning, especially the music. The original was much better, but maybe a twist would be cool. Didn't saw the bazooka guy either. Missing? Or wasn't it simply in the video. Either way, good work so far!!

True. First thing which i can suggest to change is using cooper gradient of sky instead arcade one.

About game itself, there were at least two tries of making Amiga version, but maybe third time would be "lucky one"?

I was planning on doing this one myself after Tapper is finished. Guess I won't need to, now. An A500 should be capable of a near perfect version of it. Hopefully, these guys can do it justice.

probably better to still plan making it, this is made with a game engine = requirements will be higher than what youdescribed.

looks smoother than the arcade
