JetHunt AGA - Coming 2013

Today's update brings news of another Amiga game in the works - an Amiga version of the classic platformer H.E.R.O.

Here's Coagulus with the details...
"After having much more fun coding the Amiga version of Timebomb, I've been working on my next Amiga release. 
JetHunt is my remake/tribute to H.E.R.O. which I started on the Amiga in 1992 (!) and released finally last year for the PC. After my conversion of Timebomb went so well, I felt it was only fair to release JetHunt for the machine I started it on.  
The game will require AGA but is already looking quite good. It uses a dual playfield display with a main 16 colour hardware sprite and 256 colour titlepage and status bar. I've had to make a few changes to the PC version, the screen scrolls a little so all I had to do is halve the res on the gfx but I think that makes it look even better. 
Still lots to do. This will take a while but I'm sure I can do it. 
Here is a youtube vid of it so far running in WinUAE. PC version is here.  
Fingers crossed....  
Further updates will be posted to the blog as and when they surface.
