It's amazing but for use in difference game style.

I want to make a game in fullscreen like DQ2 with 8 direction smooth scrolls.
No need many color, need more pattern, more map and more sprites to display.

This is interesting to be compared as well, Total Parody with parallax

The scrolling goes at 1 pixel per frame in 8 directions, anyway the engine supports only HW sprites, because the vdp is devoted to refresh the background at about 4 frames per second
