I was asking what size in gameplay terms... rooms or length or whatever you feel characterizes it best :)

Ah, sorry :D

22 levels
level = 63 x 23 chars (8x16 multicolor char)

What an impressive achievement. I think that there have been really great projects made for the VIC-20 in the past 3 years.

An incredibly exciting addition to the Vic-20 game library :D

I've never seen multi-directional scrolling like this on the Vic - not anything remotely close. I mean, even 4-way 8-pixel step scrolling is very rare. This is smooth, moves in all directions, has a sophisticated camera and a background layer for parallax. Truly stunning!

And on top of that it has aesthetics unlike any other Vic game. Pentagorat showed us what a top-commercial 1986 Vic game could have looked like after a few years of influence from ZX Spectrum developers. Cheese and Onion shows us what a top-commercial early 90s Vic game could have looked like after many years of influence from C64 and NES developers.

Take that (non-harmony assisted) Atari 2600! :wink:

22 levels, 63x23 chars... wow!
Agree with Ola H, this is years ahead of any other VIC platformer.
I keep watching the video and thinking it seems impossible!
Really impressive work!

Thanks,

And remember that the youtube video does not provide smooth frame rate. The real game is smoother. :wink:

I would love to see a detailed technical description :)
A sequel to Blue Star using this engine would probably go down well...

Yeah, I was thinking about pre-ordering and indeed, out of stock :( so, does that mean enough stock to go ahead, and more yellow cases? ;)

At least someone got to order it. How can it be out of stock for a pre-order? I think the guy got PO'ed and took it down...It's not even linked from the Vic-20 section of the site anymore.

Misfit, I just wanted to add my voice to the others that have expressed amazement at this game. It looks phenomenal. As soon as it is available for ordering again, I intend to order one. :D
