  1. https://www.eurogamer.net/articles/2021-01-23-vicarious-visions-reportedly-working-on-a-diablo-2-remake-at-blizzard Sounds very much like this is going to be a thing. I am always up for more Diablo and the second game is a true classic. It sounds like the Diablo 4 team were involved initially in the article (which from what we've seen has more of a 2 vibe about it aesthetically). The Warcraft 3 remaster wasn't well received though so Activision/Blizzard don't have great form in this area meaning some caution is advised in the excitement stakes. As for the developer they were responsible for the recent Crash Bandicoot N.Sane Trilogy and the well received Tony Hawks 1+2 remasters (I am only quoting the article here!) so reasons to be optimistic there. I hope it's a full 3d remake rather than some kind of upscale/retouching of sprites and backgrounds. I'd be happy for them to leave all the underlying systems alone but won't be automatically reaching for a pitchfork if its been (shudder) "modernised".
  2. Fans of Thrust should be interested in this one. Based on the game that inspired Thrust.
  3. The very first Star Wars game ever released was The Empire Strikes Back. I played this a lot back in the day and found it reasonably entertaining. Others were less enthusiastic with Harlan Ellison blasting it in his review. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Star_Wars:_The_Empire_Strikes_Back_(1982_video_game) A young Jeff Minter was inspired to write an homage to the game as one of his early C64 works Attack of the Mutant Camels. https://llamasoftarchive.org/8bitgames/attack-of-the-mutant-camels/ Anyway years later Megastyle have made a port of the 2600 original and expanded upon it! https://megastyle.itch.io/esb-by-megastyle Worth a look, for those who played the old version to death there's loads of new touches. It's not just AT-ATs you'll be facing!
  4. Another in the excellent Recharged series, this one being released 10th Feb.
  5. I forgot to mention that this remake again by Adamvision was coming and is in fact out now on PC (and other platforms?) It's no secret that I really like these remakes but this one has a lot more competition as loads of people have made their own remixes over the years. Atari themselves with various sequels and notably Housemarque with their Stardust games. It's solid but not as unique as the other remakes in the Recharged series, well worth a look if you're a fan of the original.
  6. I made this discovery while writing a post in the Zapped to the Past thread. Back when I was a kid a friend of mine had this amazing platform game on his Colecovision. We were big Indiana Jones fans and a game about exploring pyramids for treasure and avoiding traps and creatures was our thing. It looks a little basic now but this was one of the great games at the time. Unlike Donkey Kong or Jumpman you could explore the Pyramid at will rather than having to clear screens. A C64 port was announced but I could never find it in the shops, probably because it was pirated like nothing else. Eventually I borrowed a copy and spent hours exploring the pyramids. It's basic but its fast and somewhat non-linear in the way you can approach things. https://www.usgamer.net/articles/montezumas-revenge-an-adventure-to-make-adventure-proud Jeremy Parish puts it into context here. Anyway long story short I discovered that Robert Jaeger, the original creator of Montezuma's Revenge has created a port that's available on Steam. https://store.steampowered.com/app/1421120/Montezumas_Revenge/ It contains a really good port of the original And one with remade graphics and scrolling It's going for a pretty fair price (a little more than the price of a cup of coffee) and it's worth a look for fans of the original. And for those who collect NES games
  7. Well this is a bit interesting. Head Over Heels has just turned up on Steam. You can grab it here for a fiver https://store.steampowered.com/app/1134050/Head_Over_Heels/ I wonder if anyone told Tomaz Kac and Graham Goring about this? More here http://www.indieretronews.com/2019/08/head-over-heels-top-quality-remake-of.html
  8. https://www.gamespot.com/articles/spyro-the-dragon-ps4-remaster-coming-this-year-rep/1100-6456753/ anyone else stoked for this?
  9. Anyone who's played various ports of Bomb Jack back in the day might remember the C64 port as being a bit clunky. It had excellent music but the characters were way too big making moving about without hitting anything too challenging. A reminder. But now there's a remake in progress. http://www.indieretronews.com/2019/09/bomb-jack-dx-c64-c64-classic-overhauled.html#more Here's what it looks like at the moment.
  10. Found this little clone hidden in Steam's free section. Anyone familiar with the Atari 2600 or the early days of the C64 will recognise the mechanics of the game, it's a remake of H.E.R.O, or at least a clone. The graphics lack that simple 8bit charm but reminds me a lot of the sort of art you'd get in early Amiga shareware games. And hey, it's free. (edit:actually it sort of reminds me of those early clones you used to get on the Atari ST and the Amiga where it feels just a little off, but only a little.)
