opcode Posted August 19, 2011 Share Posted August 19, 2011 By now it isn't a secret anymore that I am working on a port of Moon Cresta for the ColecoVision (hopefully in time for the 30th anniversary). Here are the first couple of screenshots, from BlueMSX. The attract sequence is already running, but I want to fine tune it a bit before posting a video. Moon Cresta was released in 1980 by Nichibutsu in Japan, then got an US release as "Eagle" by Centuri. Eagle has slightly altered graphics compared to the original Moon Cresta though. I am not 100% sure but I think Moon Cresta was also eventually released in the US by Nichibutsu themselves as well as possibly Gremlin/Sega. Moon Cresta was very influential at the time because it created the concept of docking two "lives" together to increase firepower (something Galaga later also used), as well as being one of the first shooters to introduce the concept of stages with different enemies. As a bonus I am also posting a picture of something I just received in the mail... Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
