TOKI - Radastan ‏teases ZX Spectrum version of an Arcade classic


Toki was and still is an awesome arcade shooter platformer that was released way back in 1989 by a designer by the name of Akira Sakuma for many different systems such as the NES, Sega Mega Drive, Atari Lynx, Atari ST, Amiga and Commodore 64. In it you played as an enhanced Ape transformed from a Human that could shoot energy balls from his mouth defeating strange creatures and finally defeat an evil Wizard. If you remember this truly great game, you'll be pleased to know Radastan has teased a ZX Spectrum version that may be coming via the ZX Dev MIA & Remakes compo at some point this year.



Although a HD remake of the game is due to be released for the Nintendo Switch and an Amstrad CPC remake is in the works by a completely different team. Radastan has said these screenshots are a test with an optimised tileset and you wont see any more tests at the moment. If for after the summer the tilesets and sprites for the first level are completed, satisfactory evidence will be shown for the ZXDEV.

So watch this space :)
