  15. 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.
  16. 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!
  17. 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.

  22. 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.
  23. 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...

  25. 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!
