To know more about this engine please visit http://hota.sourceforge.net/ (Maintained by Gil Megidish)
Release 0.1(4) base on version 1.2.2 by Gil Megidish (http://hota.sourceforge.net/)
This version has:
* First release, Redux functionality
* Quick save/load
* Game was tested on n95
!!! IMPORTANT !!!
There are 2 versions of the sis file (because Sound in this game is awesome)
1. A version with Music (Heartaline_release_sound_signed.sis)
2. A version Without Music (but with sound - Heartaline_release_no_sound_signed.sis)
The version with music is very CPU intensive you can try it first
but the music might be choppy (It is very choppy on a N95 8GB)
So choose the correct version.
Heart of the Alien Redux is the work of Gil Megidish
AnotherGuest for a great SDL_Mixer port!
Interplay for a great game
To run Heart of the Alien, you'll need a copy of the ISO from the SegaCD.
Ideally it should be a small ISO with many MP3 files for music.
Check Gp32 page if you have the full ISO
