Seems like SCREEN 8 is the new hip. Great to see ppl explore this screen mode. Come to think of it... what SC8 games are out there already?

I'm surely forgetting a bunch.
A newer game in screen 8 is "Shift" by Infinite. And let's not forget about flyguille's awesome project in development.

Thx. hmm yeah working on it for over 14 months now on this game. its diffucult to keep speed in basic. but some nice tricks and nice help made it possible to. and this is the first time i use software sprites. so the player is full collor and can stand behind some objects.

Hi Lord Zett, since I know how many time and effort you put in every detail, it's no wonder you've been working on it for over 14 months. You showed me the work in progress at the Retro fair in Apeldoorn and Iooks even more impressive now. You didn't had the title screen back then, nor a title at all. How did you came up with the title Petra ? Is it a tribute to one of your many ex girlfriends maybe Smile Smile Smile

HI TheKid, yeah it will thake some time to finish it good. now working on sound and the main player to be as good as the rest.

No its not named after ex girlfriend but after this: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Petra
The color of this "lost" city is almost the same as the gfx in this demo.

@Imanok: Thanks for the explanation.

@Lord_Zett: I like DAQ Lord of Idar , simply but pretty and good idea . It would be nice a version improved in the future.

I hope more details from Petra.
