If you’re undecided if Eye of the Beholder is value your time, right here’s what HayesMaker64 stated in short about it in his preview linked right here. “When you first load Eye of the Beholder on the C64, you won’t believe how incredible this port has turned out. After the initial title screen and credit roll you’re taken to the infamous introduction animation, faithfully recreated by Oliver (V3to) Lindau (known for some of the best looking C64 graphics on Rolling Ronny, Caren and the Tangled Tentacles, and the recent Sonic the Hedgehog port). Accompanied by an awesome SID interpretation of the title music, translated to C64 by Linus. ”

“The in-game graphics (From llesj, Mirage and Twofolower) are merely gorgeous. The colors are used to such nice impact, that I believe general it seems even higher than the upper decision 16-bit graphics. Monsters, portraits, partitions, that big glass compass and HUD have all been lovingly pixelled on the C64. The fight animations and harm indicators are additionally included, and carried out completely.

“While display screen rendering is fluid and does include automapping, it doesn’t fairly match the pace of the 16-bit originals. Not surprisingly for the reason that C64’s processor runs at a fraction of the pace that the processors the sport was designed to run at. However, the C64 model is greater than playable because it stands, and the builders even added devoted C128 help, so if you’re fortunate sufficient to have a C128, or simply load the .crt file within the C128 model of VICE, the 2Mhz mode is supported for blazing quick display screen updates

All the levels, traps, monsters, puzzles, spells and weapons are included”.

“Andreas (JackAsser) Larsson, and team have created a no-compromise port of Eye of the Beholder for the C64/C128 and it is absolutely stunning”.
