005: Moonstone

Uses: CD32Load by JOTD, slave by Wepl
Cover: Steve
Control screen: Earok (Template by Steve)
ISO Master: Earok
Our first new release since the rebuild began, this one's been coming for quite some time! Steve did the cover back on a whim back in 2014, but we decided not to release until we could properly do the game justice. The final piece in the puzzle came recently when JOTD graciously updated his CD32Load tool to support the game - allowing us to properly map a few vitally important keyboard commands to the controller.

A beta version has been doing the rounds lately, but this is the final build - including a control screen detailing both the CD32 specific controls and the fighting commands.

COBE001: Press Play on Pad: The Demoscene Disc

Various Authors
ISO and Cover: Cobe
Menu: Earok and Cobe

This one's a little bit different for a number of reasons!

Cobe has assembled a cracker compilation of 32 demoscene productions on a single disc - almost all AGA titles such as the remarkable Nexus-7 by Andromeda, but also a few classic OCS demoscene productions as well (notably, State of the Art by Spaceballs).

What's more, the disc will by default play demos in a random order, making it a perfect "virtual jukebox" for the CD32. If there's a specific demo you'd like to watch, all you need to do is (as the title suggests) hold down the "Play" button when the console is booted.

The complete demos list:
  1. nexus-7
  2. love
  3. friday at eight 3
  4. achallamahalla
  5. among the living
  6. arte* 
  7. extension 
  8. quite unusual
  9. interference 
  10. fullmoon
  11. cream
  12. despair
  13. state of the art* 
  14. futuristic mind
  15. hardday
  16. kid
  17. desert dream* 
  18. pee wee
  19. real 
  20. breath of the muse
  21. hardwired* 
  22. lech 
  23. gevalia 
  24. the prey
  25. wit premium
  26. enigma* 
  27. dove
  28. bosnisk metall 
  29. jammin'
  30. syndrome
  31. in a world of ascii
  32. panta rhei

                                                              A complete revamp of the previous anthology release, now all three games feature seven button CD32 pad support - almost all functions are on discrete buttons, including "Jump" on the Blue/Forward buttons for the first time.

                                                              Turrican 3 in particular receives a significant gameplay boost, in that the "rope" mechanic can be activated or deactivated at will without a charge up time.
