Alpha Preview of Apollo version of 'Robin Hood'
This game is truly one of the best adventure games out there - especially if you are a fan of Robin Hood.
This is 2D graphics at its finest - the zenith of what 'old games' have to offer in terms of beauty. Everything is highly detailed, and you feel immersed into medieval England as you sneak into multiple, populated castles and cities and use tactical maneuvers to get past guards.
The game also has a nice ambushing system where you boost your economy by laying traps and intercepting armed supply caravans.
Lastly, the combat is fairly awesome too, with Robin slashing his sword in the direction you move your mouse.
10/10 would definitely recommend if you love slow paced games with flair and character.
The current MAC and PC versions of the game have pretty high requirements of minimum 512 MB memory and 1000 MHz CPU.
The true Spirit of Amiga is to use the combination of good coding on the coder friendly 68K CPU combined with using the DMA features of the smart Amiga chipset.
Using this combination of good coding and Amiga Chipset the Amiga could always achieve great games - where you needed a much higher clock PC to do the same.
The Amiga port of Robin Hood does follow this 'Only Amiga makes it possible' Spirit again - and shows what you can do with 68K AMMX coding and using the DMA of the Super-AGA chipset.

With the general increases in costs that we have all been experiencing recently,
Apollo unfortunately has been no exception and over the last 18 months we have seen increases
in the costs of chipsets, raw materials, energy and transportation. This means that ApolloComputers must also increase the pricing
of all our products to keep the business moving forwards.
We apologize for any inconvenience this might cause you at this time.
