Developer: Animagic

Mortadelo y Filemón II: Safari callejero is a Spanish two-level arcade game based on the comic series about a bumbling intelligence agency.

Professor Bacterio has invented a formula that makes hens lay eggs as fast as machine guns. During the night, an enemy accidentally sets the hens free, and one of them, Marcelina, eats an important microfilm. In level 1, you play unknowing agent Filemón; you "have" to catch all the hens and give them to your partner Mortadelo to cook them, while avoiding a mad pig. Once you cook Marcelina, you incur the wrath of your boss, El Superintendente Vicente, and level 2 starts. You now play Mortadelo, a master of disguise, and must use these disguises to avoid obstacles in front of you as well as obstacles El Super throws at you.

The CPC port has better colors, but is much slower than the other ports. Level 1 is therefore hard to play, but level 2 plays quite well.

Typical scene in the comics!

Music

To the main menu and level 2, the same jolly song loops. Unlike the other ports, it does not play to level 1, possibly because it is slow enough as it is.

Recording

The song was recorded from the main menu in WinAPE Version 2.0 Beta 2.

(Info)


So far, no AY rips of CPC version are known to exist. However, the existing AY rip of ZX Spectrum 128k version appears to be mostly identical, especially when both platforms share the same sound chip and CPU, and the composer is known to have used the same audio driver for Amstrad CPC and ZX Spectrum. The results of listening them both show the differences are most likely coming from varying emulators' code and audio presets and nothing else.

Audio Devices

This game uses the computer's built-in AY-3-8912 chip.
