Than you very much. It's my best/unique 16 bits work, for "Capitán Trueno".
I would have liked to draw this graphics in EGA or VGA, but another excelent Dinamic games had better luck: "Risky Woods"(Amiga/PC), "After the war" (Atari ST/Amiga).
Best regards, from Spain, and thanks for write about spanish software.

This one exceeds my quality expectations for anything CGA-based and is a rather nice fantasy/medieval hack n' slash with some puzzley bits. You don't need to use slowdown or mess with DOSBox cycles, movement's not too clunky, and the graphics are quite well-drawn so as to look about as good as something using a CGA palette possibly can. Likewise for the speaker sounds which actually do reasonable sound effects and not just beeps and grinds. Never heard of the comics it's apparently based on (strictly a Spanish thing I guess) but it's enjoyable anyway.
Control layout is a bit archaic though, and at least on DOSBox joystick didn't work for me, so here's a tip on the keys:
O, P = go left and right
Q = jump/climb up
A = duck/climb down
I = Go to shop (you can buy health and lives with the coins enemies drop)
Spacebar = Attack
1, 2, 3 = Switch characters (they have different abilities so try switching if you get stuck)
H = Pause the game
S = Turn sound on or off
