Bosconian for the 8-bits

Recommended Posts

Although I'd heard of it, I'd not played the arcade game (that I can remember) before playing this version of it.

 

So I have to thank you for bringing this game to my attention.

 

And just to say, I'm loving your version of it.

while the music is nice, I would enjoy it more if it fades to background music as I play... that would be really classy! and fully faded out and back in during the bosconian jingles on exit and entry allowing a little overlap to show the fine mixing capability you have worked for the would be so polished!

I think the music is just a background noise for the video and not actually in the game.

 

The game its self is looking really polished but and its only a tiny but, the galaian style 'chasers' are not in yet, to come or not possible?

It's emulated SID, and fairly sure using the hifi method so wouldn't be possible inside the game except maybe with a 7 MHz or better accelerator... but still sort of unnecessary in terms of showing a demo IMO.

It's all wonderful and lovely, and if I'd never played the game before or listened to promised features (128K), I would be happy with it now. But like Mclaneinc, I'm waiting on the Galaxian attact squadrons and I am also eagerly anticipating the enemy soft-sprites to get multi-colored (at least 2) as Shanti said would be in the 128K version.If we can get those, and more levels, I'd be 100% happy.

The attention to detail in this is amazing. It makes me want to do another arcade port but I'm not a fast enough coder to work on in right now.

 

(If I ever hit Lotto, the A8 is getting Galaga, though)

Awesome looking port, could really do without the music in the video, hopefully that's not in the game.

Almost 100% certain its not part of the game, the video says its Cybernoid II and I'm sure its just to provide some background music for the video..

I would love the music as an incidental just not full blast all the time like on the 68k based versions that are out there... it can be done tastefully and polished.... the game is the showcase.

 

I have nothing but praise for what's been done so far... Just getting fearful I guess :)

The game is sufficiently good though to deserve a quality original music piece for a theme.

If I send you a hot pepper piñata (bought for a nine year-old's birthday), and called it Lotto, will you code Galaga? That's my A8 dream game. :love:

Depends on what's in the piñata. ;)

Seriously, how about a Kickstarter campaign?

1. I think that would work more for C64 or Spectrum where there's a larger potential community. I don't really know.

 

2. I can't very well raise money with the promise of trademark infringement. :)

Yup, point 2 from Bryan is a serious problem but a 'homage' to the game with variations would work BUT its still not Galaga which is the whole deal.

 

Saying that, Galactic Chase is a wonderful homage to Galaxians and for me, hands down beats the rather poor official effort.

Anyway, I don't wish to derail the excellent Bosconian thread.

That last video is very impressive! And the digitised voice is pretty incredible considering everything else that is going on in the background. I am truly impressed!
