Heretic and HeXen for Risc Acorn 32 bit computer

Post by WhiteMagicRaven »

From googling on internet i have found that there is Acorn Archimedes versions of these games released as Towers of Darkness: Heretic, Hexen & Beyond

Interesting Details:
Released as bundle of on CDROM and/or 3 Floppy discs:

The Heretic probably has own CD-Audio tacks , but i really doubt, chances for this are extremaly low.

Here are some screenshots with and without texture filtering (as only preview images available i can't say where exactly it present or not.

Interesting notes: not only hud can be optionally scaled , but also weapons, i like this idea of small in view weapon =)
Antialiasing on map mode is also cool =)
Fog and Dark fade looks like in QZDoom software mode in 24bpp.
Also Acorn version can work on 8bpp and 24bpp graphical modes.
