ST to Amiga Conversion of Slap Fight in the Works

Originally released into the arcades by Taito way back in 1986, and subsequently across numerous home computer formats by Imagine Software in 1987, Slap Fight failed to receive an Amiga conversion.

A cracking shoot-em-up with some really neat power-ups, it's a real shame that Commodore's machine was denied a conversion of the game.

Well, it's now possible that an ST to Amiga version may finally surface, as English Amiga Board member StingRay recently posted the following;
"I may create an Amiga port. So far it's fun (protection was pretty useless, though). See screenshot"
At present this is all the information regarding the project that's surfaced. Naturally, if anything else comes to light I'll update the blog.

In the meantime, check out the excellent Atari ST version below.
