But one such engine is making its presence known, and that's Earok's upcoming Scorpion engine; a nifty piece of software that at some point will allow other users to create great games as 50HZ on A500...Or as in the case of the latest

Alpharay Blasts Away! [Plus/4 World] [[source]]


The age of slavery for the people of Archeron is close to reach its end: against the evil planet-sized companies that still built up robots in order to dominate whole areas of the galaxy, a new deadly weapon has raised up becoming reality thanks to the cultural step up of Archeron's technical knowledge. Alpharay is the name of this prototype of revolutionary interstellar ships, but science always needs a brave fighter to accept the terrible mission and challenge those greedy criminals!This year's Evoke party is over, and our family again has something special to celebrate and cheer for. Bauknecht, factory of premium C+4 home appliances, strikes again with a shoot'em up masterpiece! Another record-breaking game is out running on Commodore Plus/4 (or C16+64kB), the H-shmup adventure that our black machines were badly missing! Alpharay is a classic horizontal shoot'em up clearly celebrating some famous arcades of that golden era (R-Type, Salamander, Gradius...), and features 6 extremely various levels where to prove your instinct thru the ongoing gameplay and several surprises here and there, with their 6 big bosses at the end of them. There are three different weapons to improve by collecting pickups, in order to vaunt around your own heavy weaponry, plus a shielding aura to save you for a while. Some interlude scenes make the whole loot even richer, and the usual (usual?) fine touches along the whole experience don't miss, if you're used to all the production by Mad.Alpharay is an evidence of love for the Plus/4. See how much stunning graphics KiCHY has developed to move elaborate and big software sprites into memorably described worlds, not to mention the mastodonic final bosses! The whole musical score has been in the trained wise hands of 5tarbuck, who has composed 17 (!) original tracks all by himself alone, to improve the global sensation of being part of a sci-fi movie. Additional bits comes again from Nero and from Luisa & Oni, and the precious help in coding the most advanced slices of code comes from a great veteran like bubis!Under the neutral label of "Puls4r", this heroic brigade of passionates has just joined the Interactive Compo at Evoke 2019, the annual demoparty held in Cologne, Germany, causing a stir, already preceded by a remarkable advertising video. In the end, they finished at first place! Once passed through all of this, a commercial version will see the light distributed by Psytronik in the next months. Till then, you have enough time to let us see how far you're gone into the game by entering your highscores in the Hall Of Fame.It's not time to talk about 8bit releases now: it's time to save your people, it's time to shoot up all of them and make clean thru the stars! Play Alpharay via emulators, or copy the .D64 on a 40 tracks formatted disk and play it at its best, on a real machine.Take off, Alpharay! XeO3 watch out, you have company at 6 o'clock
