tried it last night, felt solid enough but quite difficult to understand where to go and what to do from the start.

it was pretty obvious to me that this game have been inspired by Rick Dangerous .

This is a typical platformer. There is not much to understand ;)

The game is great. A true classic.

A screenshot or two would be nice. (That might even encourage me to download & try it out...)

One of the most obvious direction any Amigans should go first when asking about a game ;)

I wrote the adfs back to disk but they would not load on my Escom 1200.

I used the disks to install them to my 1200s HDD though with the whdload install package.

Great game. Thanks to the authors and everyone who worked on the game. How much is the physical product? Where do you get it from? Can someone post pictures of the physical boxed product?

Authors are considering release of the box edition so currently nothing like this exists.

@mailman

i have been an gamer since early 80s and i own several thousand boxed games and when i say it has a few obvious problems then it is true!. ;)
2d platformers being difficult is no news but it can put people off when a game is difficult from the get go and at the same time be confusing.

completed many levels now and it is a cool game and i'd happily buy a boxed version.

article up soon on my www.blog.amigaguru.com

The game runs perfectly well on Windowed UAE-Jit on the AmigaOne X1000, but slows downs during scrolls as seen in this video:
