pues Ampos de lo que comentas del fondo, prueba con un cubo a ver si te tira más, y con una textura "sin fin", haces que recorra esa caja.

Vamos... eso es lo que he entendido que te pasa.

No, I lost the momentum back ago, the gameplay was very advanced, with a few monster out there.

Also I am unable to find the game rights owner. The guy who is publishing Gremlim games on the AppStore with a Spectrum emulator said me he had the rights, but after a few months of talk I was tired of him and I requested something to prove me "he had the rights", and then, no more words from him. Was him trying to cheate me, and talking with the real owner to get them before me? I really don't know.

Anyway, I will probably re-start the game from scracth, as it was my first program in a long time and made some serious workflow mistakes.

The guy on the AppStore IS the legal owner of Gremlin and has recently released Bounder. I really don't think you'll get the rights now, as he is in the process of reproducing a lot of the old Gremlin games for iOS.

I wouldn't start again if I were you, unless you want a big fuss from Gremlin lawyers.

A shame for sure :(

But he is only on Spectrum.

What irritates me was that he was very kind to talk and get an agreement. He was always "in 1 week I will sent you an agreement", for 3 months.

Then I asked something to prove me that he was really the owner of Krakout/Gremlim in C64 version for mobile... No more emails from him.

(He is not the Gremlim owner, but has the rights for Gremlims games for iOS, or so he said)

I don't know if it was Ian Stewart you had contact with, but he holds ALL the rights to Gremlin Graphics games - http://www.metro.co.uk/tech/games/870140-gremlin-graphics-presents-bounder-s-world-and-the-return-of-super-cars

No, it wasn't.

I emailed all the companies he said he was in and got none response. It was very hard to find him.

I'm going to email him right now.

LOL, his website has no contact information:

I can tell you now that your version of Krakout would be better than anything he outputs on iOS if Bounder's World  is anything to go by. It's totally unplayable rubbish. I can't believe I paid for that garbage (big fan of the original game).
