Amiga Tribute: Shadow Of The Beast by LukeTheRipper Amiga Tribute: Shadow Of The Beast by LukeTheRipper
Aarbron from Shadow of The Beast.

Part 1/24 of my Amiga tribute project >3

Yes, for those who were wondering (and actually interested), on of my tribute projects I'm doing this year is an Amiga games one.

And the first to be featured in said project is Shadow of The Beast, an undoubtedly important title in the Amiga library(there were various ports of course, but the original comes from Amiga >D).
For one, while it wasn't long, it was bloody hard (yeah, I know that Youtube playthrough makes it look easy, but trust me, it surely wasn't), two, it was considered revolutionary because its graphics, with many more colours on screen and up to twelve levels of parallax scrolling backdrops, were of a level rarely if ever seen before in action games, three, atmospheric soundtrack composed by David Whittaker that used high-quality instrument samples (it might not be be "the best music evah", but it fit the game like nothing else would (well, maybe except the almighty Guile theme XD)).
And do note all that was done on friggin' 1,52MB floppy disks, it took skill to pour so much awesomeness into those >D

Hope all of you enjoy this, as there will be more of these to come >3

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!

haha, back in the days such difficulty was standard XD
People tend to say "NES hard" about it, but I'd love to see some "NES hard" lovers try their skills at "Amiga hard" difficulty >XD

And thanks, glad you like it ^^

This is an excellent depiction of Aarbron. His hands and feet look so vicious! Far more deadly and practical looking than his Wolverine claws in the remake.

Many thanks ^^
It's always nice to hear it turned out good, especially coming from an artist of your caliber 83

And I actually think the PS4 redesign was pretty aweomse, I do love the original of course, but it's pretty obvious a newer game would need a more fleshed out design than the classic one, and as far as modern redesigns go, it turned out good enough XD
Then again, I'm yet to see how it actually plays, since I haven't played the PS4 game yet, but that'll have to wait a bit |D (and yes, I've seen you did a review, but I'll only check it out after I play the game first).

No, powiedzmy że "nieco" naciągasz w tym momencie określenie "kochany", hehe, but whatever floats yer boat, cieszę się, że się art podoba |3

Never owned an Amiga, although I did hear about this Shadow of the Best game, I guess. Pretty cool.

It was pretty popular here in Poland back then, so obviously I got myself one too ^^
well, nowdays you can always get WinUAE to emulate Amiga games, cause there were many awesome titles for it ^^
