Phantomas 2 - Upcoming overhaul for the Amstrad CPC

In 1986 Dinamic Software released the Spanish game of ' Phantomas 2 ' for the Amstrad CPC, C64, ZX Spectrum and later the MSX with an international release name through Codemasters under the title of ' Vampire '. This rather creepy game with a mix of adventuring and platforming containing many different screens, placed you inside the castle of Count Dracula on a quest to kill the monster while avoiding deadly traps. So why are we mentioning this game you might ask? Well this game is coming back but this time as a remake for the Amstrad CPC thanks to Jordi Sureda and Santiago Ontanon.

Phantomas 2 will be remade from the ground up and look far better than the original game which looked more like a ZX Spectrum release than what the Amstrad could achieve if it was developed solely for that platform. As such Phantomas 2 will be developed using mode 0 which will show off a much better amount of colours and overall detail. As for the core gameplay we are unsure if that will be changed, but from what we can see so far the game is looking way beyond the original 1986 version.
