|"Maria Renards Revenge" is very cool new Amiga game.
Maria, has some Vampire graphics.
And you play girl fighting against dark and evil monsters.
The game does some interesting design tricks.
The title uses 6 planes = 64color
The game itself uses 5 Planes = 32color.
And it also uses 64bit wide sprites.
Is uses the sprites to create 2 layers of dungeon background.
This gives the game a 3 layer parallax scrolling.
This looks cool and is very rarely done.
Using sprite to create playfields is sometimes used on Amiga.
Often games use the Copper to multiplex the sprites.
This does not need the Copper for this as it the 64 pixel wide sprites give it enough already to create the layers.
I think its a very cool game and show how powerful the scorpion engine is! Well done!
