Tiny Galaga - An Arcade classic as a tiny Amiga OCS/ECS Demake


Prepare to have your minds blown, especially if you have an Amiga! As we've been told by a good friend of ours that the 1981 classic Arcade game of ' Galaga ', has been released on the Commodore Amiga as a Monochrome tiny demake. This game originally developed and published by Namco Japan and by Midway in North America in 1981, as the sequel to the 1979 game Galaxian. Puts you in control of a mighty spaceship that must destroy waves of enemy formations that are out to destroy or capture you!


Currently available as a downloadable file, Tiny Galaga Demake was created by Pink and Fade One using Tools by Bartman, music and sfx done with PreTracker and all coding was done with Bartman's "Vscode-amiga-debugger". The game works on Amiga OCS/ECS and features 50fps frame rates, a resolution of 192x256 pixels, 6 music/jingles and 26 sound effects, all music+sfx use 5488 bytes (after precalc 51kb chipram is used), the game shows a maximum of 101 moving things on screen, and all graphics taking 17kb with only one bitplane and no sprites being used.
