On The Run - a CPlus4 Game on Amiga Hello Everybody,
I sank without trace on the surface, in turn I worked hard on a game in the deep. You may ask me why show you an Amiga game in this area of 8bit community, but: - the idea is from a Commodore Plus/4 game called "MENEKÜLÉS" - Amiga is also a Commodore computer

Re: On The Run - a CPlus4 Game on Amiga Hello Patrick,
There was a Hungarian maze-game in 1986 on Commodore Plus/4 called Menekülés coded by György Szöllősi.
I played a lot of Amiga games and I had no seen any game like that on Amiga and I would have liked to improve my classical Amiga assembly engine (MAE) with joystick-handling, so I decided to make a game using joystick and I chose this one... My original idea was about an offender (after the Hungarian move: "On The Run: The Whiskey Robber") who is collecting money and whiskey-bottles in a maze while escaping from police...
Your name can be seen in the intro of the game, too!
Re: On The Run - a CPlus4 Game on Amiga Very nice little game, cute! I do remember the original one, it was also advertized in the BitLet magazine color inner page too (memories from 30 years...)
Off: could you tell me what is the really nice intro music's original? I am sure I heard it in the past, but not sure what it is. Based on the style maybe some Bach? Very funny, but this music reminds me at the same time Icicle Works ingame music too
Re: On The Run - a CPlus4 Game on Amiga Hi! you are very kind listing me! I checked the video on my 4" smartphone, you can imagine, how small those characters were, so I did not realize it
Thanks for the info. I am more familiar with D moll toccata, but somewhere I should have a J.S.Bach CD.
OFF Just checked the guy's hand playing the piano. I think the beginning of this music should not be a big challenge for the TED too, two simple channels should be enough... (I would be very surprised, if noone tried it in the past).
I am not a big musician, but maybe will do a try with TEDZakker
I checked in the past George's musics done in BASIC, and I see it is not easy to manage the two channels timing without a proper command, so hat off for George too! (also BASIC seems to add some unfavourable plop sound to the music, maybe comes from RAM/ROM switching).
Re: On The Run - a CPlus4 Game on Amiga Menekülés is a nice game but it is a "remixed" version of Radar Rat Race on the VIC20/C64. Radar Rat Race itself was a licensed clone of Namco's Rally-X arcade game, one of the launch titles for the VIC-20 on cartridge.
Re: On The Run - a CPlus4 Game on Amiga You are welcome MMS!
As you can see the last part of the video, I also play it on a Sony Xperia (4.8") with the help of an Amiga Emulator, but very circumstantially.
This game may have been surely better if there were a musican, a graphic and a designer with me, because I have no any sense of music and design either, but I like programming as a one-person-army (all-in-one)...
