New Amiga game 'Tiny Bobble' announced to be released very soon
'Tiny Bobble' us an arcade port of 'Bobble Bobble' for Amiga 500 OCS + 0.5fast. Of course there is already an Amiga version but it's an Atari ST port and the developer 'pink' wondered how the game could look when it would be custom tailored for A500 OCS. So he tried.. and obviously succeeded. Release should be this month. Here are some improvements over the original Amiga 'Bobble Bobble': 50 fps (instead of 25fps) - 32 colors (instead of 16) - 150 items (instead of 40?) - Original screen height of 224 pixel (was only 200 pixel) - Almost all sprite animations (had only ~20% of animations) - Progress Screen (was not available) - Animated Extend screen (was not animated) - Big Score images (was not available) - Single file (needed a disk) - Animated intro (no bubbles were available) - Animated Boss fight (was a still image) - Multiple endings (hand only one ending)

...from time to time, some thoughts need to get out...
Farewell Patrick!
Author: Zeldin - written on 31.12.2014

Farewell Patrick!Axis/Cascade is no more. We are all still shaken by the unexpected death of our friend and group mate Patrick aka Axis/Cascade. We wanted to express our sorrow, so I coded a little intro, which you can find in the C64 demo section of this page. The following text is a rough excerpt taken from the scroller:

Dear Patrick, may this be the condolence from the the group that was co-founded by you long time ago. We want to give you our last salute. I (Zeldin) know how much you were breathing the spirit of the scene. That's why I thought a goodbye demo would have made you happy. You and me exchanged lots of mails about how much we both enjoyed the good ol' days and of course: how much we miss them... It was this tie that emotionally connected us for over 15 years. Thanks for all your help in supporting the group and your indefatigable endeavour in spreading our name. Your tattoos were legendary! Thanks for your work on fb and youtube. Your channels were appreciated by a lot of people. Thanks for being such a good chap. You'll be sorely missed!!!

Mach's gut, Patrick... den Adler im Herzen, sge4ever!
