Blastaway released!
« on: November 12, 2019, 09:34:56 AM »
Italy, November 12, 2019 - RETREAM is delighted to announce the release of Blastaway, a highly playable and entertaining arena shooter, gameplay-wise heavily and shamelessly inspired to Wizard of Wor and graphically somewhat inspired to The Chaos Engine. Graphics have been pixelled by hand and music has been tracked as modules to let the player live a true 16 bit experience. And the 50 arenas, spread over 5 different stages, have been designed to make that experience intensely enjoyable... and last long! Are you brave enough to step into the arenas and clear them of the wors they swarm with?

Blastaway runs on AmigaOS 4 and Windows. And it's... free!

Thanks all!


@F1Lupo @lionstorm

Thank you guys, your support is much, much appreciated!


@TribbleSmasher @djbase

Indeed you discovered a bug! Thanks for reporting it promptly. I have fixed it now (details at https://retream.itch.io/blastaway/devlog/109650/quick-bugfix). I made the fixed version available immediately, given that the game is going to be downloaded massively during the next few days - so you can download it again and re-install the game over the previous copy.
I must admit that this little incident bothered me quite much (I aim for perfection, although it's a utopia), but there's also a (sort of) funny side to this story: having recompiled the game today meant that the day in the build date is now... my birthday!
