Tower57 - Alien Breed and Chaos Engine inspiration with new Amiga footage

It was only a few days ago we mentioned Pixwerk and 11 bit studios 16-bit shooter 'Tower 57' will be releasing soon on GOG and Steam for PC and Mac; an arcade love child of Alien Breed and Chaos Engine with fantastic 16-bit styled pixel art. Well you'll be overjoyed to know if you have an Amiga, especially an Amiga OS4, MorphOS or AROS, this game has recently been shown running on a A1222 Tabor, compiled and adjusted to natively use the Tabor's SPE floating point unit.

The Youtubber behind this video above has said the game has been designed for 30fps and during his playthrough he has noted it still runs at more than 30fps pretty much all the time, although there are parts to the game that is still unoptimized and he isn't showing sound as he doesn't yet have a driver. From what we've seen so far I'm still sticking with the PC version of course, but watching the video in full screen HD1080 of the Amiga version, it still looks pretty sweet!
