At that price I'll buy one.

But more important would be to hold the 7/2004 release-date for "Northland" stated on your website ;-)

Put me down for an OS4 copy, if and when. Which reminds me, I was going to buy fxPaint.. must do that this evening.

Would you like feedback on here or e-mailed to you? :)

Regardless, I'd probably purchase a MOS compatible version.

Heh... as this seems the first port you do on Linux, I'm just wondering how many copies you expect to sell in the "release-that-source-code-for-free-or-f*ck-off-and-die-now!" community... good luck, man!

It sure sounds nice, but does it LOOK nice?

In other words, are there any screenshots available?

Untill now Babeanoid has been (imho) the best "Breakout game" for Amiga but sadly it's very dependant on the classic hardware...

Personally I prefer good 2D games (such as Knights & Merchants, classic arcade games etc.) to most 3D shooters.

Anyway, I'd likely buy MOS version...

To be honest I doubt I'd play it myself. I might get it just to support an effort to get software to the platform though. I'm just sort of over the whole Breakout-thing - had an overdose at some point ;)

Woww. It's a pretty low budget price. I'm all in for one for that price.

Don't you have enough work with Northland and Divine Divinity ? ;)

Put A demo on the net so I can try it, then maybe,

Or you can port well known game to OS40, then I will defiantly support you if it's any good.

An official Windows demo, and screenshots, can be seen/downloaded at http://www.barkanoid2.de. It's a bit big at 58Mb, but gives you an idea of how the game plays.

It looks great :)
it would be nice to have on AOS4..
Why don't you port it for both MOS and AOS and put them both on one CD ?
