Wow, terrific to see new programming for the Amiga! I know it's an early version but really does look like it's going to be a fun game with some nice eye candy. Thanks much for your efforts.

Thanks! I don't know if it's actually going to be fun, but for sure it's been and will be* fun making it

*When I'll finally resume development, which is currently on hold due to my other projects.

I would have offered my help, so you could offload, but I know nothing about assembly

@Yssing

Thanks for the kind thought!
However, I don't need/want external help: I like doing everything myself - and that's precisely why I do things. The end result is just a by-product of the pleasure of development ;)

Lately development has restarted, and the game has grown a lot.
Here's a new video preview:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jApqi3DVgls&vq=hd1080

The video demonstrates these new features:
* shooting and enemies;
* pixel-perfect collision detection;
* new cells types;
* new cells effects;
* new cells color scheme;
* revised HUD;
* hiscore;
* better audio channels allocation policy.

Notes:
* the music has changed again and is again a temporary placeholder; it is a mix from the Italian theme of the Japanese anime Kotetsu Jeeg from the 70s;
* despite the video was uploaded in lossless quality, the compression applied by YouTube degraded it a lot;
* for more information, check out the other previews in the same playlist - or, of course, just ask

Video preview #4

Finally SkillGrid has some music of its own! It this video you can see - or better, hear - the title screen and game over screen music, which puts together crunchy guitars and C64 sounds.
The music has been encoded in a compression method that has been designed to save more memory and thus make room for more features.
Gameplay-wise, the game hasn't changed much since last time, but still a little change shows up in the video: the horizontal/vertical controls swap cells are now in 2 colors - since they toggle the controls, they are either a bonus or a malus depending on how many times they are caught.
