STALKER - Unreleased Amiga game gets a more feature packed download


There's something special about unreleased games, games that if they were released during that time probably would've ended up on a shelf full of Amiga games, getting average to glowing reviews in an old Amiga mag straight out of WHSmith or even John Menzies! One such game which was never officially released but did see an early version project tease in 2013, was József Punk and Ferenc Bardos Action platformer of 'STALKER'.


According to József Punk, STALKER was a prototype of an Amiga game that was developed with two of his friends about 20 years ago. The main unique feature of the game was the rearrangeable playfield. The player controls a two leg robot in a scene that is built by same sized blocks. These blocks are moveable in a rearranged mode....He went on to say, although there are different versions available, the game was never finished nor released as they couldn't find a publisher to finance the development.


Thankfully in 2020 with a lot of discussion on the EAB forums everyone can enjoy the best version so far, as DamienD hasn't just released a downloadable ADF containing a fabulous title screenshot from v0.64, but also another high quality title screen from a much older version v0.24, with inclusive gameplay developments from the very last known version of v0.778!

DamienD :
This wasn't an easy task as there was no disk space left; probably why the nice title screenshots were missing from v0.788 in the first place...
I had to undertake the following:
Get the non-watermarked screenshots from the HOL team.
Convert down without loosing quality and then save as .IFFs.
Write a script to display the images via "ShowIFF".
Compress one of the data files so that everything fits on disk.
