^Haha, I remember reading that about a year ago. It's amazing how well that all fits together.

Speaking of DeviantArt, however, someone stole one of Ptoing's pieces today and received a Daily Deviataion for it: http://moosehat.deviantart.com/art/Sweaty-Dudes-118169158  :(

Joined today and got a DD immediately for a stolen piece? Someone's got some explaining to do, and not just the thief.  :n:

What's the term used for when a boss's limbs consist of a bunch of sprites chained together?

Lol, sweet! Is it worth buying? The material on the official site seems promising. The character art is up to date and better. Even nostalgia won't make the original character art look good. Yeah, an 80's babe with pointy boobs but what did that have to do with the game sprites? Absolutely nothing. Good thing the music sounds accurate. Huelsbeck's site doesn't mention anything about him doing the remixes, but they sound good anyway. This totally made my day. ;)

I had the Amiga version but I never finished it, it got so bloody hard after level 27 or so. Apparently the C64 version was easier.

Edit

BTW, Giana Sisters on Nintendo DS! That's quite ironic, if you think about it. ;)

The only areas I think it's lacking is in the length of the levels, they're pretty short.

Graphics are also a bit amateurish, although they kinda work.. it's weird.. regardless, they're nicely animated.
I think as long as the 2D platformer is one of your favourite genres, and you're already familiar with the Giana Sisters- it's worth a purchase.

It seems like the levels get longer. I've just started the second world though I did a level in the clouds which was a good amount longer than most of the others. When I first saw the graphics I thought they were blech but once you see them in action they are a lot nicer and I actually quite enjoy them. The animation is fantastic. I feel like I'm playing a very well done DOS game. The only problem I see is it getting monotonous, we'll see. And I agree with .Takam in terms of purchasing. The only question is where? I can't find a place to buy it anywhere!
