Ye olde platform games

I have decided to upload some screenshots of a game I wrote for the Amiga, some thirteen years ago. The game is called Blaze and the main inspiration behind it was Sonic the Hedgehog, an awesome platform game by Sega. Blaze was programmed entirely in 68000 assembly language using Hisoft’s Devpac assembler and the graphics drawn using Deluxe Paint II. Unfortunately no sound effects ever made it into the game. Hopefully, I will make the ADF available for download pretty soon. I also plan to include some screen shots of Androboy, another platform game in the Sonic vein, this time written for the IBM PC. My friend Colin wrote Androboy a year or so after Blaze.

[Update] Alright, here’s a download link for Blaze. Note that you need a Commodore Amiga or an Amiga Emulator to run the game.

In the coming days, I might be discussing some of the technical aspects of the game – it will be fun trying to recall what went in there after all this time.

[Update] Colin has set up a space and uploaded some screen shots from Androboy.
