OK, I'll bite.  I still had a $10 coupon buried in a drawer from Piko's previous release (Custodian), so that was an added bonus.

Yeah We try to choose the best aspects from all the ports available. Since Amiga had the better soundtrack we went with Amiga.

Holy crap! Just realized you guys are in San Antonio. I just moved here 4 months ago! If you guys need any help, or want to hang out and it doesn't seem too weird, shoot me a PM.

So it's using 100% Amiga assets and nothing from the ST version?

The Amiga is a direct port of the ST and looks and sounds identical (Samples for sound effects) - This version is using the ST code, with the Amiga music. In essence, it is the Amiga version. But if you want to get technical.....

If you can't get to the link atm. It's Switch Blade.

Developed by Core Design for Gremlin Graphics, Switchblade is a classic Amiga action platformer from the late 80's!

New Cover Artwork by Simon Phipps original creator of Switchblade!

The Fireblade, sacred symbol of the ancient Switchblade clan, has been smashed into 16 pieces by the evil Havoc - but they say that a Hiro can save it, and as Hiro, you must retrieve the 16 pieces and restore your people's pride.

The gameplay is platform and ladders based, set both inside and outside. The layout of the territories becomes visible as you progress, and they can contain bonus weapons and secret rooms. Unlike the sequel you start without weaponry, and this is gained directly, rather than you collecting coins and trading them at shop sections. Holding down fire progressively builds up your fighting power.

Pre-orders will be available 3-5 weeks before shipping starts. The game will be manufactured with all new parts and assembled by hand. Packaging will come factory sealed. Limited quantities will be manufactured and will not be any other runs.

Product contents include:

Cardboard Box
Color Instruction Manual
Poster
Game Cartridge

Will this be available from telegames uk like Custodian or do we need to order direct?
