Yves Grolet has released a backup of his last Amiga hard drive to the public! You can do whatever you want with the source code except commercial use. The archive contains the sources for his commercial Amiga game ‘Agony’, as well as a bunch of other, smaller projects and prototypes. Agony boasts seventeen tunes altogether, and if you’d expected the usual bombastic drivel normally associated with shoot ’em ups, you’ll be pleasantly surprised. Actually, the music seems inspired by South American folk music, with haunting pipe sounds complementing the action perfectly. Agony is a game with much attention to detail. With three levels of parallax scrolling smoothly across the screen, the backgrounds change to reveal scene after scene of glorious graphics. Incredibly, all these backdrops are also animated, and it’s hard not to be distracted by them. Add to these some realistic bird animation and you’ve got one of the best-looking games of 1992.
