Did you ever consider making a Magic Knight game for the 16bit machines, Amiga or AtariST.
Like this one you mean? :mrgreen:

Never knew about that, was there an Amiga version?

Nope, just Atari ST and the 8-bits.

Ah guess that's why I missed it then. I did have the Spectrum version though

Slightly OT but just remembered that I used to follow the David Jones programming tutorial in Amiga Format. He went through all the routines he used in Menace. I learnt the technique of how to do Amiga hardware scrolling from that article. Before reading that it just seemed impossible to figure out. It's probably still a great tutorial if anyone wants to learn how to program the Amiga. They gave you the source code on the cover-disc.
