Been making a game with the resolution and color palette of the Amstrad CPC (1984 8-bit computer) in it's wide pixel Mode 0 and felt like posting some screens.  Simple run n' gun with large levels with a bit of exploring much like Turrican.

Yeah I think the angle of some of the gun in the loading screen image is a bit off and I'll fix that once I figure out how.  The loading image will also have a background eventually.  I started one but removed it for the demo.

16 colors in the shots (same 16 color palette all through the game, just used differently) plus 1 transparent seperating the screens.

There is a demo available though it's a bit buggy currently.  Was done for the Retro Remakes contest 'We Like It Retro' category and I had flu on the last few days of the deadlines and broke some bits.  Will continue on the game in the new year.

EDIT:  The game has changed a lot since these screenshots.  Check out my tumblr (link on profile) for more info.  :P

Thanks.  These shots are years out of date now.  There are somewhat more newer ones in my gallery now the game has taken on a different direction. :P

I remember this from the competition, inspired work and really makes excellent use of the CPC palette.

Ah yeah I saw that a while ago.  I know the guy off the CPCWiki forum.  In fact I sold one of my old Dizzy tape games to him to complete his collection.  :)   Also it's a real old version of that image anyways (the revised version is elsewhere in my gallery here).   Thanks though. :)

Someone on youtube is using this for their video. Don't know if you care about permission, thought I'd let you know.

Looking forward to seeing the updated screenshots then! 


user
Carnivac (Level 8 Shodan) @ 5/23/2014 04:39

Thanks but nah, these shots look pretty poor now.  Have done much improving since then.

Wonderful work. But don't you have a little too many unfinished retro game projects at once ? :)

This is perfect! I admire your art greatly.

Awesome, the character reminds me of Wolferine mixed with the hero from Full Throttle, Ben :)

not sure all of it reads particularly well but it's fantastic given the restrictions.

I instantly new this was your work :)

This looks really sweet, and the only problem i can see is that in the caves, the enemies blend in to the background. 5'd and fav'd

ROFL! I'll have to check that retina burning game out.

user

Damn, those CPC colours are hideously saturated, but somehow you manage to turn them to perfection.
Pity I can't get the demo to run, so I can't burn out my retinas with them.

How about finding an old CPC coder and doing this on the actual hardware? Now THAT would be AWESOME!: )

user

awesome graphics, awesome game, tons of fun, but a bit hard, maybe so it seems like the demo never ends? fantastic work.

Another awesome one by you Carn, I've been looking at the development of all your game's and so far most or any of them are not finished (correct me if I'm wrong). But I look forward to your future releases none the less.

Looks awesome at x2.
Damn you, I fear I might reach your level of work in like 3-5 years :'(
Oh well, practice, practice, practice.

user
TomF (Level 1 Rookie) @ 12/28/2008 15:37
