"Metroid"


Samuel (aka Zamuel_a of Pac-Mania and Giana Sisters fame) is working on a third game for the Atari STe and this time it's based on "Metroid". Bear in mind, this is a work-in-progress but we can walk, jump, fire, explore the levels and all in a 16-colour-limit-busting display! The Blitter will handle the sprites with hardware scrolling used to ... well ... scroll. And at 50fps!! As you can see, this looks fantastic but Samuel is also looking for help: music, sound effects, sprites, and level design. If you can help, please contact him directly via the Atari-Forum website.

It looks like Zamuel_a could have another winner on his hands!! Watch this space...

  1. Did anything ever come of this? I have no relevant talents to offer, but am still interested in the outcome...

    1. Good question! I believe real life was getting in the way... but I'd also love to know if there is any new news. I'll keep you posted.
