Commodore 65 Prototype Retro Hardware

Prototype – Commodore 65 Found and Now on Auction Block

Ah, Commodore, the company that brought us such great and venerable computers like the 64/128 and the Amiga.  These computers really defined computer gaming in the 80’s for a lot of fans that preferred keyboards to joysticks (though both were offered).  As most computer users of the old days know, there were attachments for these […]

New Game: Grubz Brings Worms Style Mayhem to the Commodore 64

The Commodore line of computers (Amiga and 64) are quite prolific with the homebrew community- the fans just won’t let these platforms die.  Grubz is one such new homebrew title that fans of Worms will want to keep an eye on.  Grubz will be released by Protovision (what movie used that same name for a […]

Battletanx Blows Up The Nintendo 64: Today in History- December 31st, 1998

Battletanx on the Nintendo 64 may not have set sales records, it certainly did open, even if ever so briefly, a new genre of gaming that few companies jumped in on (Sega did with Alien Front Online which was “similar”).  The year is 2001, a virus has wiped out the feminine side of the human […]

Polaris SnoCross Shreds Onto the Nintendo 64: Today in History- December 27th, 2000

Before Vicarious Visions were working their magic for Sega and the whole 2k sports line on the Sega Dreamcast system, they were creating games like Polaris SnoCross for companies like Vatical Entertainment for the Nintendo 64.  While not a graphically impressive game, it does show off Vicarious Visions capabilities with early 3D (which they tweaked […]

Armorines: Project S.W.A.R.M. Released on Nintendo 64: Today in History- December 2nd, 1999

Acclaim may be dead and gone now (they were one of the first licensees for the original Nintendo Entertainment System back in the mid 80’s) but it can never be said that they didn’t try new things in their games.  They may not have been successful with many of their titles but they tried anyhow.

New Game: X-Force Reminds Gamers that the Commodore 64 Can Rock Scrolling Shooters

Side scrolling shooters.  A genre that used to rule the roost in gaming, no matter what platform you gamed on, there was probably more than a handful of side scrolling shooters (unless it was a 3DO, CD-i or Playdia that is).  From the likes of Nemesis II on the Game Boy to Thunder Force III […]

Bandit Gaming: Donkey Kong Jr Ported to the Commodore 64

That old adage, what is old is new again, is certainly true in the homebrew scene as old gaming properties are constantly seeing new light on platforms they may have missed from official channels.  We have seen Mario jump to the Sega Genesis, unofficial sequels to The Lion King, Link from The Legend of Zelda […]

Kickstarter: Do It Yourself Portable Nintendo 64 Looking for Crowd Funding Support

Over the years we have seen just about every console released receive a portable edition (most have been stupidly expensive).  The main problem with these portable modified consoles is that they were usually created by an individual on a one at a time basis.  A recent Kickstarter project looks to change that by making the […]

New Game: Powerglove for Commodore 64 Released

Run and gun games really became a staple in gaming with the Nintendo Entertainment System and a little title named Contra. The Commodore 64 was not exactly overflowing with them but there were a few arcade ports (even a Contra game or two amongst them) that featured this style of gameplay. Powerglove, a new homebrew […]
