Nice conversion! The sample on the right channel that go faster and faster is good but between there is this annoying click. Could you look at that?

this is the hard part. But yes, come to think of it, it should be possible


This is shaping up to be a fantastic conversion of the arcade classic. I played the latest build at the end of my Twitch stream (CharlieFar) last night and played about 20 waves. It looks to me like the difficulty level isn't progressing the way it should. By level 4 (I think), we should start to see up to 4 descending enemies at a time (excluding the 2 red and yellow ship formations). It remained at 2 attackers only all the way through.

There was a couple of other small issues: the background drone tempo was wrong at times and occasionally enemies would disappear without showing their explosion.

As I said, this looks like it will end up being the definitive port. I'm the current arcade world record holder on this game, so thank you JOTD for taking on this project.

thanks, seems that you're right. There was a bug in the transcode, and the difficulty never increases when completing a level. I'm planning a new release in a few days. Thanks again for the feedback, much appreciated!

Very nice Arcade conversion. Our German-language review can be found in our recorded livestream starting at 04:59:15. Automatic subtitles should be available soon (switch on, if necessary). Subscription to our YouTube or Twitch channel is welcome. 🙂

Another quality port!

An excellent port of Galaxian for the Amiga!
