Nice game - good mix of Clowns and breakout! Good to see Red Pill getting results.

Another new game

...these days everything is coming out of the wood work

Good stuff (and who says the Amiga homebrew scene is dead)?

What CPU is needed to get the speed in the video? From testing Redpill most of the games ran too slow on 020 or lower.

Heya Zener,

Is there a way to run this from CLI?

On my "Classic WB 3.1 Lite" .HDF I can use:

Code:
Alehop projects/circus/game005.pill
If I copy everything needed to a floppy disk and try it fails

However, if I just type "Alehop", the ASL requester window appears. I can then manually select the path / file and the game loads fine...

I really want to have it running without having to do this though

I think you need the Assign command in path.

Also some libraries like diskfont,icon,explode...well, I'm not really sure about the ones needed.

If it works from WB you can try WBRun command.

Nice little game. I like the monkey island reference.
Made a quick gameplay video of this:

Ok, I give up... Attached is my disk if anyone can figure this out.

As mentioned in my post above, if I start a Shell from my "Classic WB 3.1 Lite" .HDF, change into the relevant directory and type the following, all works fine:

Code:
Alehop projects/circus/game005.pill
Move all required files / libs etc. across to an .ADF and the same command fails after showing the RedPill screen

Finally, if however, after failing you just type "Alehop", you will then get an ASL requester window. You select "projects" --> "circus" --> "game005.pill" and all works perfectly

This shows that nothing is missing from the disk.

I think the problem is how to set the parameter set in toltypes

Alehop PROJECT=projects/circus/game005.pill

You could try it with WBRun or WBLaunch (runs programs workbench from shell)

I'd first I thought they were porting Alehop from MSX to Amiga... since that fair is in Spain... and Alehop is also a spanish game...

But then I see it's nothing like it

I also wonder, what CPU does this need to run at that speed?
