I hope this game will come out. At first I thought of Marble Madness which I liked very much.

got to admit, Logical is one of my favourites, and many many hours of my life were spent clicking mouse buttons frantically trying to turn wheels in time

@Toaks

I don't know... but I just downloaded the PC demo and it definitely is an old school Amiga type game, and well done. I love puzzlers like that, and for $19.00 I would buy it. But I'll wait a bit to see if the Amiga version comes about.

*argh* I remember this gam for the A500 ... Damn can't remember the name. That's alot of time spent there let me tell'ya.

I sure hope someone gives it a go.

To bad there's such big difference between Amiga and mos. Now the damn thing have to be ported twice. Or am I wrong?

I was under the impression that if you stuck to the OS3.1 APIs everything would work together in harmony. Or something. But I too might be wrong (feel free to flame grill me if I am).

Hmm, maybe so.. But if you want to utalize some cool 3D acceleration wouldn't you want to use Nova? And as far as I know that's only planned for AmigaOS.

shoe:the game on amiga is called LOGICAL and its from around 1990.

as far as it goes for multiporting , well if it was me who would port this game i would do it in w3d and ahi etc , hence there should be no problem if the w3d emu on mos is good enough but also i would use things like new features aswell so i dont know really.

as for system calls and such (api wise) both mos and os4 is compatible though Os4 use p96 and mos cgx but both has some sort of compilation so....

all in all, for this game in particular i dont see why it shouldnt work as 1 port and not 2 but if its supposed to be 68k aswell when then we have to do "more than 1" port(s).

anyway the major problem with this game in particular is that we dont know if its written in C or asm or whatever and dx7 itself shouldnt cause too many problems to port to w3d but!!!! there is features that w3d4.2 doesnt have that dx7 does.

but then again, on os4 we dont use 4.2 or?

I downloaded the demo and it's pretty cool. I didn't play long and I am running it on a P4 2.4ghz laptop, however at first glance (based on the first level) it would "appear" doable on an accelerated classic w/AGA or certainly a gfx card. That's probably stretching a bit but it shouldn't need more than a ppc166 and GFX card based on the PC minimum spec...although who knows perhaps it gets much more insane as levels go by.

drjohn:yes thats what i heard too but the question really is if its viable to do an 68k aga version, porting such to classic like that would probably take too much time and a waste of time.

68k Rtg + 3d card would be minimum imho.
wos rtg+3d might be of interest...

os4 and mos native versions is a must imho ....

BUT ofcourse i aint saying that people (developers)shouldnt ignore classic unless its related to much work or cut down versions etc...
