Lupo Alberto


Late last night I came across an interesting post on AtariAge by Philsan concerning an unreleased game called Lupo Alberto. This is a platformer which (I think) is based on a European comic or a TV show? Well, after 25 years of existing in unreleased hell, the ST version finally gets to see the light of day (now listed on AtariMania)

First impressions are pretty good with lovely music, cartoon visuals and cute sprites roaming about. Just look at those chickens!! However, push-scrolling is used which is a severe shame because the game's mechanics demand proper scrolling. Well, it is unfinished so I shouldn't complain too much and the push technique is fast and responsive. Gameplay is tricky for such a cute looking platformer so I imagine lots of frustration ahead of me but I'm delighted we have a new game to play. I'm really looking forward to giving Lupo a proper going over tonight.

Update: during a game press CTRL and type: otrebla. Thanks to Luca Stradiotto!!
