Wonderboy WIP - Favorite Port of All time

Recommended Posts

Didn't crash on my NTSC but there are the glitches you expect with a work in progress. That is... if I weren't into Hoaxes... ;)

This screen is to replace the welcome screen , not the title screen (where you see boy and girl and hear the music theme)....

I don’t speak Croatian but I can use google to understand what it means :)

do you prefer the old green screen we had ?

from our perspective the new screen is much more cleaner and colorful.....

lets just hope Sega and Westone Bit Entertainment won't be like Nintendo (Mario for C64) and won't take legal actions against this project. Wonderboy seems to be still an active "brand" e.g. https://store.steampowered.com/app/1112240/Wonder_Boy_Returns_Remix/

Just put a commercial in with check out.... to be more save?

Yes, it's fan art to promote the new remix release... which does in turn make you more safe. Very Smart indeed.

Wonderboy is an all time favourite of mine, I love it on the Master System and C64. The Atari version looks fantastic, well done guys👍👍

Yeah, if you push the character against some walls, it will flash into the skate boarding guy... anyway, you can slide your way without the skateboard.

 

BTW, your work is flowing great.

Well, but you also have to admit that it is a very good way of using POKEY. Remove the samples and the attending voice, you might get the best solution for the game tune.

So the tune gets the same "catchiness" as in the arcade. The SID version is also ... erm... cough ... "optimized" for SID.

I hate to sound so negative about this WIP - this particular level colour palette and how it looks on screen - but I think it looks so flat overall. (foreground blocks as such and the background don't carry any sense of depth to it - with traditional pictures/paintings - you have darker objects going into the foreground, but computer graphics tend to go the other way.)

That with experimentation, you should be able to find something that looks better?

Particularly because you have the main sprite and it's colours popping out at you - it's a shame to have the background looking so flat/dull in comparison.

I'm not suggesting a complete redo/redesign - but just experiment and just maybe you can find something that looks better?

@kiwilove No worries Harvey, we love harsh words as long as they are true ;)

It's just the first prototype of that level. There will probably be dozen more gfx revisions in the future...

 

As Doctor said, arcade isn't much better:

Still think it's ugly looking --- that it's not using the colours to the maximum (nicest) way possible...

Never got far into this game - like with most coin-ops - I don't put in a lot of money/time with it.  Only game I got far in, was Zaxxon - probably because I liked the graphics a lot.
