Software News   Software News : Abakus-Design reveals Port Royal and Aquarium screenshots
   posted by MikeB on 29-May-2003 11:31:38 (1797 reads)
Port Royal is a game within which the gamer tries to sink ships by shots of cannon fire. Changing winds will hinder you and the ships will open fire on you as well.

Aquarium is an Amiga screensaver similar to Serene Screen Aquarium created by graphics artist and programmer Jim Sachs (of Defender of the Crown fame) for Windows and Macintosh platforms.

Both programs were created by usage of the Multimedia Application Layer software Hollywood and will be freely available when Hollywood 1.5 is released.

Ich habe zwei Fragen:
*Muß ich Hollywood kaufen um dieser Spiel zu benützen?
*Will there be an English version? My German sucks...

I like the screenshots...and blowing stuff up is always fun.

No, I don't think so. The game was only developed by using Hollywood software (The Abakus website does not even mention Hollywood). The timing for release has more likely to do with promoting the abilities of Hollywood 1.5, which seem quite impressive.

Also some interesting plug-ins have been announced for Hollywood. The Malibu Plugin should allow the software to use Scala presentations and another plug-in Codenamed Pasadena for Powerpoint presentations!

BTW "verkaufen" means selling and "kaufen" means buying.

If this is going to be a German thread...

Das Screensaver ist sehr attraktiv, aber wo sind die Anforderungen? Meiner meinung nach, es ist nicht fur AGA-chipset - aber wenn ich mein AmigaONE kaufen, würde ich das Screensaver erhalten

Now THAT would be a killer feature. I prefer more "platform neutral" PDF files myself, but that doesn't stop the mindless minions of Gates from treating PPT's as if it was as universal as plaintext.

Hehe, I knew I would get something wrong. I never use German these days. It is currently my third language. It might get bumped down to fourth place by Spanish at some point.

@alx:

If it is made using Hollywood, I guess it should have the same RTG capabilities. The screenshots from the game certainly didn't look like AGA to me.
