From the Disc

Most CD-i Games have "Abstract", "Bibliographic" and "Copyright" details on the softwares disc itself, any interesting information in these files can be found below.


    Big Bang Show is an exciting and challenging game of skills featuring Albertus the mad scientist and his latest discovery, Sparkie, a bouncing ball of energy.

    For 1 to 2 players, Big Bang Show is a 2-module game package:
    - The "main module" is an arcade action game, with 100 screens and a rising level of challenge,
    - The "question module" is the Time Quizz, comprising 1000 questions on the historical periods the player travels through:

      - Big Bang
      - Prehistory
      - Middle age
      - 20th century
      - Future

    Only when the player collects the right items, avoids the traps and answers Albertus' questions, can he hyper-space jump into another period. This requires reflexes, speed, knowledge and memory.

    More than just a game, the host Albertus adds warmth, humour and personality, presenting realistic adventure for the participants to experience.

    Big Bang Show offers a rich graphic environment, including computer graphics for all game screens, digitalized images to illustrate the five periods, video sequences for Albertus' appearances, a sound element for the sound of the ball in movement or in collision with objects, and an original musical accompaniments to the game.

CD-i Emulator Compatibility: This section covers crucial details concerning performance of this specific game under emulation through CD-i Emulator. It will state the CD-i Player Rom used during the test, what version of CD-i Emulator was used, which program the Disc Image was created from, specifications of the test PC and also provide screenshots of the emulator in action. Also included is an account of the test and most importantly if the game is playable through CD-i Emulator. Rather than an exhaustive list of tests with various ROMS and different PC rigs it's hoped that this section gives some insight into the progress of CD-i Emulator. For the most recent updates to CD-i Emulator and compatibility it's suggested you visit the CD-i Emulator Homepage.

    CD-i Player ROM: CD-i 350
    CD-i Emulator Version: 0.5.2
    CD-i Disc Image created using: Golden Hawk Technology CDRWIN 4.0A

    Operating System: Windows XP Professional

Details of Tests: The Phiips Media screen plays correctly and with an action button pressed progresses to the next screen which is when the emulator hits problems. At this point it's supposed to show the Infogrames logo screen but instead displays rolling corrupt graphics and the emulator stops dead in its tracks.
