RESHOOT: A new Amiga shoot´em-up coming 2016 is playable on a real A1200!

Another game that was mentioned and one I think might be a bit of hit with the Amiga gamers, is Richard Lowenstein, Adam Morten and Kevin Saunders Shoot em up ' RESHOOT ', which hopefully is coming this year to the A1200, A4000 and CD32. Although it was said to be coming to these systems before it wasn't until this month that the developers officially announced the game was working on real hardware with just 2 MB of RAM!

Developer update is as follows :

I´m a little proud that today, for the first time, the game ran on an unexpanded Amiga A1200 with all the bells and whistles turned on. This means: By now RESHOOT is introducing itself with an startscreen in glorious HAM8-mode, which leads to a titlescreen and then runs a gameloop. Music is pumping,  bullets are raining, animations are drawn in full  60-Hz-framerate and scrolling looks silky smooth with 35ns pixel resolution that only a real Amiga 1200 can cope with – sorry emulator guys: On FS-UAE and all other emulators RESHOOT still looks the part, but the real shine can only be experienced on real hardware! So by now a lot of the hard assembler engine development work is done. On to designing some real inspirational attack waves! 

So there you have it folks, it's coming and if you've got an A1200 you should be getting just that little bit excited by now :)
