  1. 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!
  2. 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
  3. From For someone who was a fan of the first game I can't wait to see if they finish this one and what they do with it.
  4. 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.
  5. 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/

  7. 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.
  8. 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. 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.

  17. 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
  20. 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 remain
  21. 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
