Mega Man Amiga - Video & WIP Download Link
UPDATE: When this was originally posted I mistakingly credited English Amiga Board member s2325 as being the developer behind this work in progress title. I have since been informed that this is not the case, and that the developer behind this is German Amiga user Reentier.
A huge hit on Nintendo's NES console back in the late 80s and early 90s, Capcom's Mega Man series of titles were extremely polished, fast-paced and absolutely rock hard.
While Capcom seem to have all but given up on Mega Man in the past few years, it would seem that at least one Amiga user is keen on keeping the brand alive, and on our favourite retro platform, too!
Revealed in a brief blog post early yesterday morning, English Amiga Board member s2325 announced that he'd been working on converting a Mega Man game to the Amiga, using the Backbone game creation system.
Revealed in a brief blog post early yesterday morning, English Amiga Board member s2325 gave the heads-up on a work in progress effort of converting a Mega Man game to the Amiga, using the Backbone game creation system.
Although there's still much to do in putting the game together, the Woodman and Firename stages are already looking fantastic. Check out the YouTube footage below.
If the above isn't enough, s2325 has
made linked to a demo version available to download, so you can try the work in progress out on your own Amiga or emulated Amiga set up. You'll find the archive at: http://www.workupload.com/file/tTsAvHhh
Naturally, if or when further news surfaces regarding the release of Mega Man Amiga I'll be announcing it on this very blog.
In the meantime, please send any feedback to s2325 via his account on the English Amiga Board. In the meantime, please send any feedback to Reentier via this link on the German Amiga Community boards. You can also use the link to follow the development progress of the game.
