El Capitán Trueno by Amiga Factory

El Capitán Trueno (also known as Captain Thunder) is the hero of a series of Spanish comic books, created in 1956 by the writer Víctor Mora and illustrated mainly by Miguel Ambrosio Zaragoza (Ambrós). The comics were published continuously between 1956 and 1968, with Trueno eventually becoming the most popular Spanish hero comic of all time: at its height it sold more than 170,000 copies every week. The series was inspired by Hal Foster’s Prince Valiant.

It’s no surprise Amiga Factory chose El Capitán Trueno for their game project, it was, and in some respect, still is, a very successful franchise. There are various incarnations of the game, released on the MSX/2, Amstrad CPC, ZX Spectrum and DOS. A movie was also released back in 2011 titled ‘El Capitán Trueno y el Santo Grial’.

The Amiga homebrew game is by a group called ‘Amiga Factory’, and was created using ‘Red Pill Amiga Game Creator’ which you can download here. The objective of the game is to break the curse that has transformed Abbot Estanislao de Castiglione into a monstrous and diabolical creature. Read more about the game here.

Download is available as Amiga .lha and WHDLoad versions. Source: amiga-factory.itch.io
