Doulber Nears Release
9:08 AM | Andy Largent | Comment on this story
In late August, IMG brought you the first word on a Macintosh port of a small French title, Doulber: Escape from the 80s. The game is a new take on the classic maze arcade games of yore. You play as Doulber, a friendly little ant who likes to collect diamonds. While searching for the precious stones, you must beware of dangerous enemies and surroundings. Doulber features quirky graphics and a large variety in scenarios.
Patrice Krysztofiak of Phelios is working on the Mac port of the game right now. In a recent exchange with IMG, Krysztofiak reports the game is not only nearing release; it's also fully Carbonized for OS X. While earlier reports were that the game was having performance problems, it seems all of the issues have been cleared up. Here's a clip with more info:
We only have one Mac so we only tried [the game] on it (a 450 MHz G4), it runs at 70 fps on Mac OS 8, 9 (it uses DrawSprocket so it should run on OS 7 also) and Mac OS X using Carbon. It's playable in windowed and full screen mode (we noticed that a lot of games are failing to switch resolution on OS X so we provided a windowed mode in case that happens).Congratulations to the Phelios team, and be on the lookout for a demo of the game very soon. It will be posted at MacGameFiles as soon as its available. Check out the Doulber site for more information and screen shots of the game.
