MARIO130XE Posted March 4, 2016 Share Posted March 4, 2016 There are a lot awesome projects of coding games or their A8 conversions of awesome classics. Just wondering why all the cool projects stops one bit b4 they are finished. I did a search in the AtariAge board and the www using a few names of games and have found lots of those projects. For example: Price of Persia (awesome background graphics and intro done) SMB (very fast n cool graphics, multi directions scrolling + sound + level design was done in different versions & techniques) IK+ (playable demo exists.. no more to say) Ghost n Goblins (title, very nice graphics, running Hero and sound done) Contra (title, background graphics, scrolling done) Sim City (no comment ) And some clips in youtube are showing prototypes of turrican, outrun, rick dangerous, last ninja .... Even if we can't have the 100% conversions of the original arcade/c64/cpc/nes ..... versions on A8 because the © shit, so we could have lots of awesome game releases using the engines. It's a shame, there's only 1 .. ONE!!! great Jump 'n Run (Crownland) for the lil A8. Car Race.. the one and only good n serious A8 game is Pole Position. (smooth and fast graphics) Don't get me wrong, I don't want to beg for more n more games... Unfortunately I am not a coder but I could play any of the originals on original hardware or emulators. I want to understand the reason, why the lovely projects always ends, shortly b4 they are finished. Is it TIME? No prospect of profit? ("Fear, emkay could talk it down?" just kidding ) Any opinions? 3 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
