Atari 8bit owners prepare yourself for an all time classic platforming game, a game that has it's own cult following, a gem in the retro scene. It's none other than Rick Dangerous, developed by Core Design and published by Firebird in 1989 for the Amiga, Amstrad CPC, Atari ST, Commodore 64, ZX Spectrum, and DOS. Today's very special news is this fantastic game classic is being ported over to the Atari XL and XE, a port that people originally thought was a huge april fools! According to the Polish team, this port will feature animation running at a constant 25fps PAL, overhauled detail to use the full colour map, and much much more!
Rick Dangerous is loved by many, it is a game that has lasted the test of time and can even be played today by even the youngest generation. It had the feeling of Indiana Jones, with some of the best platforming action that amazed even gamers when it first came out. What never appeared on the Atari 8bit is finally looking to get a port that would make any retro gamer very proud indeed!
