Monkey Lad - Welcome to an Alex Kidd demo inspiration on the Commodore Amiga

In 1987 Sega released the great side-scrolling platform game ' Alex Kidd ' for the Sega Master System console. Although it was first released in Japan in 1986 but internationally in 1987, it was one of the most well known games as it was also built into most Master System II's. For anyone that has played the rather enjoyable original, will be pleased to know as an updated test to the Scorpion Engine on the Amiga, Earok has shown off what the engine can do with a short playable demo which he is calling 'Monkey Lad'.

Now before you get too excited thinking that Earok(Erik Hogan) is going to release a full version of Alex Kidd on the Amiga, you'll be dissapointed. As from what he has told the community previously, this is just a general demonstration of the engine's evolving and growing capabilities. Still from my personal experience of playing the demo, it's very impressive and I hope Monkey Lad will be turned into a full game at a much later date, even if at this time it's just a demo.
