All are down-converted as far as I know. I've never played the Mega Drive version :)

Well, the first level is almost identical. Looking over the Mobygames screenshot section, I see some kind of train stage that's missing; and here's the DOS version's wall stage:

Cool Spot - Stage 7 - Dock and Roll

I need to tweak some of the earlier efforts - there are some bugs and inconsistencies. Saving things as background/sprites/foreground layered files certainly helps with that kind of thing.



I've worked out a technique to help my Autostitcher with games like this one which run at inconsistent frame rates, which is helping a lot.

It's the last level of the game but I have a few bonus stages to map yet.

It... looks a bit bit weird, but there's really no satisfying way to show movements in static maps, and it doesn't look horrible either. It's your call really.

Did you change anything except the animated frame used for the enemies and items?

I remade the whole thing with layers, but yeah, that's about it.

Same deal - just making the sprites consistent across the maps.

After a very long hiatus, I just hacked Chuck Rock to have a free-scrolling view. Here are some quick rushes:



They need sprite cleanup, but they have been grid aligned and missing areas filled in.

Nope, never been there, no sir. Whatever gave you that *crazy* idea?

I've only started and left unfinished a few maps, nothing more. Let me see... two, three... five... ten... twenty...

*is still counting the next morning...*
