hello

i'm 42 old and i'm french.

for the 30Th anniversary of the game BARBARIAN 
i have done a clone of the Atari ST (the palace sotware 1987 game) for PC ,Sega Genesis/Megadrive ,Nec PCengine and Atari Jaguar

this game is one of my first teenager game and i always like it.
 

this remake is in Basic, powered by QB64 (for the PC version) an awesome programming language .

for the Sega Megadrive, always in basic with BasiEgaXorz an awesome Sega Genesis BASIC compiler.

for the Pcengine, i have port it in C, with Huc 3.21, the most easy C compiler for console !

and now, i have ported it in basic with Raptor Basic+ (rb+) available on atariage,

who is a fantastic compiler !

 

i have tried to re-created the original as in 1987, as faithfully as possible ,
whether is be for gameplay but also for graphics

i hope you will enjoy this remake

here is the download link and some screenshots

thanks all  ;-)

each line of all this remakes are from me, i have started in 2012 from a blank page.

all this remakes represent 1-2 year of coding

the gfx are screenshots from emulators and sound has been catched with freecorder

you can read the source in the zip (*.bas file)

i think  the Megadrive source  could be adaptated on a many 8bit hardware (Colecovision,Master system,Nes....)

because all the gfx and sound are in data in the .bex file (over 50.000 lines of code )
if someone want to do it, it would be cool
i can help him, but in basic langague only

One thing that may not be clear is the OP made this in BasiEgaXorz a Sega Genesis BASIC compiler:

If yall want a Coleco port support PixelBoy or nitrofurano in their efforts to make a BASIC compiler! :)

This would make a great 7800 game. Maybe it could be done in 7800BASIC?

it's a good idea. why not ?

i will look if it's possible. (maybe the AppleII version)

if someone want to help me to port the code to 7800 basic, it would be great

thanks !

i don't think i will do barbarianII, because it represent too much time.

remaking this Atari ST version of Barbarian 1 took me 2 years of work......

Awesome work!

Incredible effort to extract all that graphics and music... Not to mention gameplay... Excellent!

 

And you even provide source code and all resources.... Cool...

 

Some people are already working on a better A8 version of barbarian... Think maybe your code and graphics could help.

 

Thanks!

Awesome job. I'll be sure to check it out on the Megadrive. I spent countless hours playing the c64 version of Barbarian as a kid. Up there with IK+ as one of the best 1-on-1 8bit fighters.

hello

it's me again with my remake of Barbarian AtariST

i have just ported it on the little but powerful 8bit console Nec Pc-Engine

the colour and the sound were easy to port on this hardware, with the help of Huc 3.21, a fantastic C compiler

i have learned C langage especially for doing this remake

here is the result in video :

and the link to download the rom:

https://www.dropbox....ARIpce.zip?dl=0

you dont see it on the video, but if you click on II button, you swap between sfx and music 

the music theme has been re-created especially for this remake. its was a big work by "arkhan"

the rom works on emulator (mednafen) and on a real pce of course

i hope you will enjoy to play at this AtariSt 1987's game on a pc-engine

see ya
