How awesome, I completed the Spectrum version a few times.
I see on the YouTube vid there is a typo for the name Johann Strauss

many thx, i think i came to the level of the return of the kong beast on the MSX,
games for that time is just so damn hard, when testing some of the levels, i think i use 20 lives to get through :lol:

thanks for the typo thing, its a little embarrassingly, an other person on a spectrum forum have also inform me about it :D

btw since you are a hardcore MM man, then maybe you could try it out and let me know, how it stack up to the original(Game play), if you like

Yes of course, happy to help!
I will send you a PM. It's been a few years since I played it (15?) but I found my old rubber keyed Spectrum in the loft and it still worked. So I played Manic Miner, Chaos and Atic Atac!

Program send :D
i tried h.e.r.o on a MSX emulator a couple of years ago, the scary part was if I relaxed, the game movning was still in my body, and after 1 or 2 games i could reach beyond level 15

Hi, I forgot to say in my feedback that I used to do the 1st level with minimal movements/stopping and maximum efficiency. The game plays pretty much the same as I remember but can I complete it in the style I did before!! Nope!! Maybe tomorrow night :-)

Many thanks :)
I first made one without drums, but AtariCrypt thought it was dull, so i did this one instead of, but i had my doubt about it, I am not 100% satisfied with it. but it look like that i will keep using this one, from the feedback i have received :D
but i was also hard to do it, using only 2 channels :D

and also have to have a good look at ST paint and also Project-Ymer.
So i have a lot of things that i need to do in the new year :lol: ..

Well, when i was hearing it on the video i thought : "Hey it would be fun to have this looping tune enhanced with many progressive variations in the beat, pace, arrangement over its loops." ;)

i think you got a valid point, one gets pretty mad listen to this version for hours :lol:
so some variation would be great, but not sure that i am up for this task, but i will look into that later, going be a little hard some of the bass-drums notes are combine with the bass sound.

Many thx.
yes you got right, there are many great 8bit and arcade games never ported for the ST, so there is a lot to chose from :D

Got to level 3 without losing a life last night.
the old magic is coming back.
On level 2 the key at the top right on the ceiling needs to be collected by jumping on to the platform but the original Spectrum you jump through the platform to get the key..
I prefer the new way though!

I just had a quick run on the MSX version, the 3 first is collapsing floor, its only the last one there is solid.
btw i have add pause to the program, and fixed the high score routine, i send you an new version this weekend :)

edit
i had a other look 3 collapsing floor and one walk through block, where mine is 3 collapsing floor and one solid block

edit +.

i also liked it better this way. but i change it any way, to make it as close as the real one as possible :'(
