- "Missiles over Xerion" (by aj, 6 Jul 2005) [10/10]
We had the idea to make this game around 1990 and it took us to years to make it. After we finfished it it was hard to get a good contract to sell it. We finally found Kingsoft /Ikarion and had the luck that they had the right to sell our "missile shooter" together with the old "missile command" classic game...
all in all around 5.000 games were sold in two month - then it went bad - maybe an illegal copy went round - the usual way...
we didnt earn money but we realesed a game and Cycletech was founded. The Cycletech Multimedia GmbH (like ltd. but with a higher cash base) still exists... look at: www.cycletech.de
But back to the music:
I made a lot of sound tracker songs but the Xerion songs seem to be the only known...
exspecially the title tune - my cycletech mates still like it and think its the best I ever made...
Olaf, coded the star wars style scroll text
- this was new on the amiga as we released the game - no one had made an effect like this before because vector arithmetics need to much system speed - so we had to use a trick to do it.
my intention was a tune which fits good to the scroller and leads into the game mood while the scroller tells the background story (I had written).The flute melody and the drums were the base of this idea...
it took 2 weeks till the first version was ready and later I changed somethings so maybe it took all in all 3 weeks.
By the way:
the game as a bug - in the multiplayer (this is still great to play) version it is impossible to finish the game ! As far as I can remeber the last enemy ship does not appear.
Maybe I will upload some other tunes I made!
AMIGA - a great time.
