  1. Some incoming news from http://www.indieretronews.com/2018/10/alien-8-ultimate-play-game-classic-is.html#more edit Video below from earlier attempt at a port. Cheers @Gregory Wolfe for the heads up
  2. 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!
  3. 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.

  5. It's time for another ZZAP! Annual, with editor Roger Kean and artist Oli Frey on board. https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/47744432/zzap-64-annual-2020-lets-do-this-again Filled with reviews of the latest games, new features and interviews - including an exclusive interview with programming legend Andrew Braybrook. Perks for the campaign include new game Dragonspire, signed canvasses and ZZAP merch.
  6. This looks pretty cracking. http://www.indieretronews.com/2017/04/limbo-c64-modern-indie-game-as-work-in_21.html
  7. SO according to Indie Retro News someone is taking on the massive project of porting Eye of the Beholder to the C64. So you're probably thinking it will be some sort of Bard's Tale hack yes? Wrong. http://www.indieretronews.com/2018/05/eye-of-beholder-dungeon-crawling.html How good does that look? More (including a video) at the link.
  8. 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
  9. I remember coming across Issue 1 of Commodore Format randomly late 1990. And this was mana from heaven for me. I was unemployed / studying. Mad on videogames. But unable to upgrade from my C64. (It would be many years before I'd be able to upgrade.) And so having a magazine that had games on the cover was amazing, especially since this was pre-internet. Some of the games might have been old but they were also out of print or had never been sold at the local department stores and stalls. Recently I resdiscovered the CF pages where every so often they've been doing a run down one tape at a time. I've been wanting to play more retro. What better way than use this as an excuse? I thought I'd start here https://commodoreformat.wordpress.com/power-pack-1-october-1990/ and move forwards.
  10. From http://www.indieretronews.com/2018/11/farming-simulator-is-coming-to-c64.html#more Not really my bag but those C64 pixels give me such a rush of late 80's nostalgia...
  11. This looks really good. More info here at http://www.indieretronews.com/2018/08/labbaye-des-morts-c64-work-in-progress.html#more
  12. https://www.facebook.com/thalamusdigital http://www.indieretronews.com/2017/08/thalamus-digital-publishing-ltd-rebirth.html#more I'd love a remaster of QUEDEX without the weirdly moving light source on the marble!
  13. Another one bought to my attenion by the wonderful Indie Retro News. http://www.indieretronews.com/2018/06/bub-and-bob-return-home-to-c64-puzzle.html#more Just have a look
  14. From the always excellent Indie Retro News. http://www.indieretronews.com/2017/12/zzaps-back-zzap-64-annual-2019-announced.html Check https://www.facebook.com/groups/370835800027675/ for more
  15. It's finally out. http://www.indieretronews.com/2017/12/luftrauserz-paul-kollers-magnum-opus.html#more More at the link and it looks lovely. It can be bought here in cart form http://rgcd.bigcartel.com/ and here in digital form https://rgcddev.itch.io/luftrauserz
  16. Andy Noble has just made a neat port of Cookie. How accurate is it? I was crap at the Speccy version, crap at the Amiga port and I'm crap at this one too. Details here http://www.indieretronews.com/2017/11/cookie-veritable-kitchen-nightmare.html
  17. I've no interest whatsoever in the full 3D horror game Lucius but this demake that's on sale right now caught my eye with it's C64 colour pallette and despite some minor things that wouldn't be able to be done on the C64 (zooms and that font size) I've had a great time playing it so far. It's a little rigid to begin with but it opens up, becoming a little confusing until you understand how the house is laid out. Like it's bigger brother this game is about playing a 70's style demon child, wandering around a house doing chores to appear to be good while setting up situations to kill whichever adult is in your (literal) bad book. So it's like Jack the Nipper crossed with those horror games that CRL released back in the 80's. It plays like one of those 80's style clunky arcade adventure games but if you've missed that sort of thing it's on sale for the next day on Steam.
  18. After many long years it's finally finished. The C64 port of Terry Cavanagh's VVVVVV! http://www.indieretronews.com/2017/04/vvvvvv-incredible-news-as-modern-indie.html#more
  19. According to http://www.indieretronews.com/2017/04/abu-simbel-profanation-classic-zx.html#more bastard hard Speccy game Profanation has now been ported to C64. Now you can be like me and get excited before dying over and over and over on the first screen.
  20. Launched today (2nd November), fans of classic C64 games should check out this Kickstarter: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1289191009/reformation-c64-track-remakes-by-matt-gray-last-ni Original composer Matt Gray is remixing his classic compositions, including Last Ninja 2, Driller and Dominator. Planned as a 2-CD set initially, stretch goals include the possibility of even more music, a limited edition vinyl and even the chance for Matt to write you an original tune. Already at £19,000 and rising!
  21. Back before retro gaming was a thing, back when emulation was only just beginning the only way you could play your old games was to make sure you kept your old systems. Enter Bignonia who did things the hard way. Porting in Amiga assembler old C64 ports (which were usually ports of old arcade games.) This was like the Inception of ports back in the day. A few of my favourites They also ported Aztec Challenge, Bagitman, Frantic Freddie and Pharaoh's Curse. Back in the day (when I was unemployed) finding these on Aminet mirrors on bulletin boards felt like a gift from the gods.
  22. More news from http://www.indieretronews.com/2016/12/frogger-arcade-for-c64-hokuto-force.html#more This time they've found an arcade perfect (well as close as you can get) port of Frogger in the C64. It even keeps the vertical aspect ration. Download that the link above, if you're stuck on how to add more credits it's 5 or 6 on the keyboard.
  23. A Christmas treat at the always excellent Games That Weren't. http://www.gamesthatwerent.com/gtw64/yogis-clean-up/ Apparently half complete amazingly some people have gotten together and not only recovered the code but gotten it into a playable state, even adding music and an end screen!
  24. You can now play Lode Runner in a brower window. Sorry (not sorry.) http://loderunnerwebgame.com/game/
  25. Yeah I know, we're spoiled for choice. Atarisoft did a prt in the early 80's, Ocean did one later. Now there's a full port. More info here http://www.indieretronews.com/2016/11/donkey-kong-x2016-version-jumpman-is.html#more and here http://csdb.dk/release/?id=151278
