Looks like a professional title and certainly better than some I paid for back in the day.

Not to shit on Turrican2 (okay, only a little bit ), it certainly pushed the boundaries back in the day.
But in the end it's an 8-way scroller with extremely repetitive tile graphics (due to no additional 512k) running in 4bpl. Music was well done off course.
I think the graphics style aged not very well though, imo.

Devil's Temple looks incredibly colorful and well made. Uses a lot of huge BOBs while running in 50FPS and not even stuttering once from that I have seen. The graphics are ranging from well done to gorgeous, imo.

I mean, look at this:



The usage of copper to get that amount of colors on screen is master class.

To me that almost looks like "another console gen" compared to most stuff I have seen created on the A500.
And that puts it into the upper 5% of games on the platform for me.

Your mileage may vary, off course.

Yes, it is but it is made a whole lot easier by the fact that this game is strictly horizontally scrolling. I'm not sure that this sort of thing wouldeven be possible at all in an 8-way scroller.

I'd thought about this previously and I believe it is possible. I'd use the blitter to update the copper list with the specific colour values per line. Tricky but doable.

It is possible to have a big copper list and scroll it with the screen. We do it super metal hero… it s also possible to have multiple copper list to add even more color i do it here in 2 of the stages. However it s all a question of how you going to use it , you need to design the stage with some limitations in mind. It can be a headache sometimes and require tight communication between the programmer and the artist.

Also turrican 2 is awesome i love it. Maybe i should do art for game like that one day.

Didn't Lionheart do that in those beautiful DPF levels with the foreground?
That effect is one of the few things I haven't wrapped my head around in Amiga game effects that I have seen in games.
Truly outstanding.

Add/edit:

Like I said, I don't want to shit on Turrican 2, but I think most people remember this game through big rose tinted nostalgic glasses. It and its predecessor were definitely ground breaking for action games on the Amiga, no question about that.

But if the same game came out a few years later, I am not sure people would remember it so fondly.





Anyway, still a great and super playable game off course.

It's been a while since I did an update but I've been working on the game.

Here's levels 1-6 of the game, still plenty to do and some annoying bugs to fix.

Game release will not be in May that's for sure.
