Turbo Esprit Alternative Loading Screen

By Retronator

Here is my take on what the loading screen for the ZX Spectrum version of Turbo Esprit could have been like (if I was doing the job 28 years ago instead of Dave Cummings I guess).

It's ZX Spectrum mode, which means only 2 colors per 8x8 block and either bright or normal variation.

The original loading screen can be seen here, wheras my version is based on the cassete inlay illustration.

Amazing, I loved this game. Do you use any plugin or filter to convert graphics to spectrum style or do you make all the tiles by hand?

It's all by hand. Everyone does it that way since you want your artist control. There's a lot of creative decisions that go into minimizing the effect of the grid. A great gallery to see best works is here:…

Good job. I loved both the game and the Spectrum, but I am glad that I played this one on Amiga500. The graphics were top!

Yeah, I would spend many hours reading amiga reviews in magazine and drooling over the screenshots. :P
