Totally new Amiga games are coming out for Amiga more and more. This one is a totally new platformer for Amiga home computers with OCS chipset or higher. But that’s not all! There is also an Amiga console version, which is made for Amiga CD32.
Originally. This game was originally released at Evoke 2015 demoscene computer party in Cologne, Germany. You can download it for free from here, but now poly.play released a physical diskette/floppy and a CD-ROM version of the game! Fantastic! So you better support it. Also! You can get the awesome Zerosphere poster too.
Zerosphere is a Party Amiga game that now is Commercial
With »Zerosphere« by Heckmeck! poly.play publishes the first title for Amiga (diskette) and CD32 (CD-ROM) in two variants each: On the one hand as Collector’s Edition in a box with some extras like poster, SD card, sticker and an exclusive yo-yo. On the other hand as a budget variant in a six-page digipak with 16-page booklet.
Our hero Squinty has been trapped by his arch nemesis Odak. On his way to freedom, Squinty will find himself in Odak’s laboratory complex, on the surface, and in clammy dungeons. He will not only have to collect all gems in every corner, but also avoid falling into the ocean, getting eaten by piranhas, disappearing into the void, getting stung by poisonous spiders, and burning himself with hot lava.
However, there is one special catch: Odak has used his latest invention, the »Dimensional Transformer« on Squinty – now, everything around him appears distorted and looks vertically stretched. Only if Squinty squints real hard, he can see the world around him normally for a short period of time.
