Amiga Tribute: Franko: The Crazy Revenge by LukeTheRipper Amiga Tribute: Franko: The Crazy Revenge by LukeTheRipper
Franko & Alex from Franko: The Crazy Revenge.

"Spadaj pierdoło!"

Part 20/24 of my Amiga tribute project >3

AWWWW YEAH, now this is one piece I've been wanting to do for a long time now, and by some sick twist of fate, it randomized itself only a few spots before the end.... oh right, back to the pic, behold Franko: The Crazy Revenge
Hehe, if you couldn't tell by my reaction alone, this game is VERY special to me. Yeah, I know how it looks at first glance, but there's more to this game than just the graphics (which weren't even THAT bad for it's time), and even that is kinda justified, as it's a very early Polish production, back when we hardly knew how to program this stuff, and compared to the rather huge supply of utterly crappy games we made back then (like Rise of The Robots or Super TaeKwonDo Master), hehe, though yeah, we did get a long way from the likes of Franko to the likes of Witcher II or The Vanishing of Ethan Carver, ne XD
Anyways, as I mentioned, this is a Polish game, and as it's set it a Polish city, the stages were VERY precisely picturing how our neighbourhood looked back then (the game takes place in '91), so as a Polish child of the 80-90 era I can't help but feel nostalgic seeing the scenery I had around myself back then |D (well, minus peiople beating eachother to death all around the place XD).
Of course, if you followed the link and saw the gameplay, you probably noticed the amount of blood >3
Take note, this game was released the same year as Mortal Kombat, but considering how far behind our country was back then, we didn't even hear about the game until sometime later when it somwhow got to us XD but the amusing part is, Franko is actually more bloody than the infamous MK >3 it might not have had the overly bloody Fatalities, though still, each boss in the game was finished in a similar manner, but the biggest difference is that the blood in MK splashes out and disappears instantly, while in Franko, every drop of blood you spill stays on the groun, hell, the bodies of each and every person you kill along the way stays on the ground as well, eat that MK >D
Another thing unique to this title, thought probably unnoticed by anyone who's not Polish, is the amount of cursing included. Granted, besides the "fuck you" or "fuck off", all of the swearing is in polish, but damn, it is a mystery how a game composed almost entirely of blood and curing has actually made it pass the censorship hammer (and it's not like Poland didn't have one). So yeah, why it might not look like much nowdays, it was a kickass game back then, and has many fans to this day.

Other parts of the project - Shadow Of The Beast, Shadow Fighter, Zool, The Chaos Engine, Superfrog, Skeleton Krew, The Speris Legacy, Flashback, Agony, Brutal: Paws of Fury, Fightin' Spirit, Ruff 'N' Tumble, SwitchBlade, Lionheart, The Lost Vikings, Brian The Lion, Wolfchild, Gods, Entity, Franko: The Crazy Revenge, Hired Guns, Turrican, The Killing Game Show, Yo! Joe!

I feel like reading your comments is very educational about your country!

And I think I've discovered one more thing that looks great in your style; long hair!

Hehe, about that as well, I admit, I do like drawing hair, especially the puffy, 80's hairstyles or anime spiky hair ^^
Heh, and if you like how I draw hair, you might be into a treat in the near future >D

Well, I post the links to gameplay vids for a reason here <:3
I'm fully aware Amiga games are very obscure, so that way people can see how the actual game looked like and how the characters presented themselves, they can also see for themselves whether my fanart is accurate.

Yeah, until your images, I had never heard of it. Looks like it would have been a great game to play as a kid growing up though. The game we had was Killer Instinct. lol

Owszem >3
Słysząłeś może o takiej indie grupie jak TheCompany?
Zajmują się przerabianiem gier z Amigi (w oparciu o WinUAE), tak by działały na PC jako pliki exe >3
I oczywiście Franko jest jednym z dostepnych tytułów ^^

Ja też. Ustawiam sobie jeszcze filtr overlay taki że obraz na monitorze przypomina jakością monitory amigowe i jazda.

:icongzegzolka:
gzegzolka Featured By Owner Oct 15, 2014
Ja wolę standardowe proporcje obrazu, filtrów które wpływają na jakość pokazywanego obrazu nie używam, chyba że chodzi o wyśrodkowanie obrazu żeby nie był nadmiernie rozciągnięty. Na prawdziwej A1200 nie miałem problemu z obrazem i na emulatorze nie mam zamiaru pogarszać sobie odczuć.

Well, WinUAE ma tą cholerną wadę, że zdecydowana większość potencjalnych użytkowników nie ma pojecia jak go w ogóle obsłużyć... plus, trzeba osobne ustawienia robić dla wielu gier, co czyni korzytanie z niego o wiele bardziej frustrujące niż powinno...
Tutaj wystarczy jeno kliknąc 2 razy na ikonke i grasz do woli ^^

Fakt, ja również na początku walczyłem z konfigurowaniem aż w końcu się nauczyłem. Tak naprawdę większość gier można odpalić używając wbudowanych menu quickstart i wybierając odpowiednią konfigurację (oczywiście trzeba mieć stosowny kickstart). Ja obecnie robię tak że jak chce odpalić jakąś nową grę to używam profilu innej gry i jeżeli chodzi to zapisuję to jako nowy profil. W ten sposób odtworzyłem prawie w całości moją kolekcję gier które kiedyś posiadałem na prawdziwej Amidze. A tak ogólnie to w sumie nie ważne na czym grasz tylko w co. Za pracę leci :+fav:

LukeTheRipper Featured By Owner Oct 31, 2014  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Jak się ogarnia tego typu ustawienia i umie owe quickstarty to owszem, takie rozwiązanie moze się bardziej podobać. Ja jednak nie mam czasu ani na naukę ani na ogarnianie, poniewaz wole go wykorzystać na właściwe granie, rysowanie lub na życie jako takie.
heh, jedyna formą świadomego marnowania czasu dla gry jest dla mnie wgrywanie gier na starym C64... to jakoś nie to samo bez emocji z ustawianiem głowicy XD

Tak więc ja zdecydowanie wolę te łatwiejsze rozwiązanie ;3

Ja zaśnauczyłem sie, że podczas grzebania w co bardziej skomplikowanych programach, bardzo mało jest pod twoją kontrolą |D
Thta, oraz że kompy bardzo lubią trollować swych właścicieli, którzy myślą, że mają kontrolę |D
