Giana Sisters: Lego Gameplay / Brick Movie Update 26.08.!
« on: May 31, 2017, 18:04:46 PM »
Update 26.08.: new clip - link further down!

I'm quite sure that everybody in this forum knows Giana Sisters and has been playing this game.
I did so maybe a year ago (a emulated version) and suddendly i had the idea to build the settings in Lego, and started to think about making a stop-motion-video . . .

So here is my Giana Sisters Lego Gameplay . . . this is the newest clip, Stage 3:


My little YT-Channel is called "Mitch78's Bricky Retro Gameplays" (also including Intro and Stages 1 + 2) and i am planning to continue the Giana Sisters theme a little bit, but i also have ideas for more stuff - that means more Lego gameplays from other retro games  ;)

You can find some more information on YT at the description of the clips - or otherwise feel free to ask!
By the way, pattern is the Amiga-Version of the game (same as the sounds)

Living in the states, I am unfamiliar with Giana Sisters. Looks like a decent game. Probably never heard of this title because of Nintendo and there strong arm tactics.

Nice job!

That is really cool, great job! There's a new Giana Sisters game out and it was free on Xbox One earlier this month so I've played it a bit and it's good. That was first experience with the series but I had heard of it before.

Thank you for the positive feedback! I estimate it took me about 40 hours to finish the clip.

Yes, there is a relation from Nintendo to this game - they regarded it as a "Super-Mario clone" and wanted to take the producers to court. So to avoid this, the producers took the game out of sale and not many original copys of the game do exist, but lots of illegal copys. As far as i know, the game was never sold on the US market.

40 hours!  That's a long time but the result is very nice.

Not owning an original copy is one things that binds every Commodore 64 owner. LOL!!

Thank you for sharing a little more of the background information. Too bad it did not make it to the US market.

Here is Lego Gameplay Stage 4 . . . this one is pretty short - but at the end of the level Giana faces for the first time a serious opponent.
This stage is definitly dedicated to all those who have a little arachnophobia  :o

The 5th stop motion clip starring Giana features some small improovements concerning the scenery and graphics and a more dynamic and longer (over 90 seconds) gameplay. Secret room and easter egg included  ;D

And here is Stage 6, the last part so far.
I made some little changes and improvements, but not concerning the gameplay - because i fail badly at one place  :o
