@Hondo_DK

Not "dudes", but rather "dudette" - i.e. not male, and not a group of coders!

Looks really impressive - screenshots are very reminiscent of some of the old-school platform games, but according to the thread over at amiga.org it uses extremely fast scroll routines, etc. Dying to get time to download it to try out!

Typically enough, however, one of the first questions that I saw asked was (hopefully with tongue in cheek, although there were no smilies) - "Will it work on my 1.3 A500?"... aaaarrrrgghhh!!!

I'm downloading right now the demo!
My WinUAE will have 1 more game to emulate very soon if it's any good as it seems.

Yea. Cool! The code was fresh, but the GFX wasn't that great. This project would do with a dedicated graphician that has a bit more experience.

It looks cute :)

Probably not the type of game I will play, but I might look into buying it anyway.

It seems well done - but I didn't like the "predictive camera", which looks up when I want to see the platforms below for guiding him down on to...
