  1. Indie Retro News highlighted this delight today. http://www.indieretronews.com/2022/02/tutankham-c64-port-of-tutankham-arcade.html#more https://lowcarb.itch.io/tutankham-c64 I would have loved this back in the day and playing it now reveals a pretty bang on port!
  2. Another 2600 to C64 port has arrived! http://www.indieretronews.com/2021/12/sequest-1983-atari-2600-game-arrives-on.html This is one of my favourite 2600 games and while it loses some of the vivid colour from the original (due to the different methods both machines create the screen) and feeling a little different it's about as good a port as could be done. It even keeps the little tricks like being able to halt the oxygen meter by peeking just above the surface with the sub's tower. Download here https://h4plo.itch.io/seaquest (Original below for comparison.)
  3. More details here. https://www.gamesthatwerent.com/gtw64/popeye-v1/ Comparison. The prototype The released version
  4. Galaga has been ported to the C64 by Arlasoft. You can download it here https://arlagames.itch.io/galaga-c64? This is one of those games that missed out being ported to the C64 (it's successor Gaplus being the closest the C64 got during its commercial lifespan.) It's a pretty solid port!
  5. Many of you will know I wrote The Commodore 64 Book 1982-199x. Today I have announced a new website - c64books.co.uk For the first time, my C64 Book will be available officially as an eBook, with updates to text and design. Plus.. I can reveal work has started on the sequel, The Commodore 64 Book 199x-2022 with over 200 reviews of games released between 1992 and 2022. This will be published in August 2022, marking the 40th anniversary of the Commodore 64. Plus there are other projects in the works. Sign up to the mailing list to hear more, and watch the trailer:
  6. I haven't tried it yet but someone has ported Spider Fighter (2600) to the C64. Download page here https://h4plo.itch.io/spider-fighter Video of it in action
  7. Supremacy on the C64 was an impressive port back in 1991. All the more impressive as a single load game. Now a group of coders are looking to make a new version with all the missing bits of the Amiga version for disk and flash carts.
  8. https://sarahjaneavory.itch.io/zeta-wing Well, Sarah Jane Avory made a huge impression in 2019 with Neutron (and the funny Christmas-skinned revamp Santron). Now she's back with Zeta Wing, a gorgeous and incredible vertically scrolling shoot 'em up inspired by arcade game Gemini Wing. (Sarah actually ported the Atari ST version to Amiga, and was always disappointed she had no time to make use of the Amiga's superior hardware) Earth has been overrun by mutant creatures, so strap into your fighter and blast off to get rid of the infestation for good! Destroying a complete attack wave drops a P token, and collecting 12 increases your shot strength by one level. Dying drops it back one level but does not drain your power gauge. - Three difficulty levels and autofire option (hold fire) - Seven huge stages - Giant end of level bosses - Parallax scrolling layers - Simultaneous sound FX and music - PAL and NTSC compatible Trailer here:
  9. I don't think we've had a thread on this old game. I remember loving this back in the day despite it being something David Crane cobbled together in six weeks from his Car Wars prototype. Came across a video tonight that talks about how the account generator worked in such a way to create a "save" system with no onboard saving.
  10. This is amazing. https://www.gamesthatwerent.com/2020/05/joust-c64-found/ edit. The whole story can be found at https://www.gamesthatwerent.com/gtw64/joust/
  11. http://www.indieretronews.com/2020/05/marios-cement-factory-c64-port-coming.html#more From the creator More at the link but a bit of a fool's errand as the C64 doesn't have a display good enough to.... Woah. This looks really good and as close to the art of the original that you might hope to get on an 8-bit.
  12. So someone is developing a Unity style environment for the C64 / Apple 2 / Atari XL / Atari Lynx and has released footage of a Goblins style demo for it. More here http://8bit-unity.com/?page_id=34 Here's a shot of Grubs. (A worms clone.)
  13. The C64 port of Fix It Felix Jr is out and can be downloaded here https://brokenbytes.itch.io/fix-it-felix-jr Alerted by the always amazing Indie Retro News http://www.indieretronews.com/2020/04/fix-it-felix-jr-for-c64-out-now.html
  14. Another 2600 to C64 conversion that can be downloaded from here https://arlagames.itch.io/megamania-64 (Yes, this level is still bastard hard)
  15. Just when you thought these classic 2600 to C64 ports were done comes another! Read the link for more. http://www.indieretronews.com/2020/01/crackpots-last-atari-to-c64-conversion.html#more
  16. It's still in the early stages but you can get a preview here http://www.indieretronews.com/2019/12/the-chaos-engine-64-8-bit-tribute-to.html
  17. Classic MSX platformer King's Valley has been ported to the C64. Details here at http://www.indieretronews.com/2019/12/kings-valley-konamis-platformer-has.html#more
  18. Mentioned in the other thread but deserves its own. http://www.indieretronews.com/2019/10/frostbite-yet-another-atari-to-c64.html#more Looking tasty! Video of it in action at the link above.
  19. Martyn Carroll has written an amazing piece about the C64 port of Outrun by a father and son team. It's amazing to think how much the UK games industry relied onkids just out of school. You can read it here https://www.eurogamer.net/articles/2019-10-13-the-boy-behind-the-biggest-coin-op-conversion-of-the-80s? From the article : Dad Dennis was responsible for the graphics and daubed his and Martin's initials on the in-game vehicles! Sounds like he was pushed a lot more y his father than was healthy though I played quite a lot of this back in the day although I considered it a bit of an also ran. In retrospect a little harsh considering it was just two people knocking it out.
  20. Exciting news for those of us who enjoyed the recent Chopper Command port. http://www.indieretronews.com/2019/09/keystone-kapers-another-atari-to-c64.html#more
  21. What I love about this port is the detail, down to the credits screen which is the same as the credits screen used in other Activision C64 ports. And they managed to get that amazing Activision sunset in, something that's harder to do on the C64 than the 2600. More info here http://www.indieretronews.com/2019/08/chopper-command-c64-final-version-will.html#more Unfamiliar with the game? It's a basic version of Defender where you need to take out planes and choppers before they hit your convoy. Bonus points are awarded depending on the jeeps remaining at the end of each round and that's it!
  22. Thought this might be a good topic given that Mad Magazine is going to cease publishing new content. Which means probably years of reprinting Spy Vs Spy strips! I loved this back in the day. I missed the window for buying it in the 80's but played all three games during it's second wind as magazine covermounts. It's big novel thing was couch co-op edit: competitive play with one of the early examples of split screen gaming. The first one is probably the most focused of the three. Some people back in the day preferred the Speccy version as being black and white made it truer to the source material.

  24. It's time for another ZZAP!

Perks for the campaign include new game Dragonspire, signed canvasses and ZZAP merch.
  25. I loved the C64 and Amiga versions back in the day but for now have a look at this cracking port to the BBC! http://www.indieretronews.com/2019/03/stunt-car-racer-mind-blowing-port.html#more
