Commodore 64 Full Motion Video

Think the Commodore 64 cannot do Full Motion Video? Think again, it can even do a great rendition of the Knight Rider and Dallas intros.

A promising fantasy role playing game, Unknown Realm: The Siege Perilous, has hit Kickstarter.

The Final Attack 2017 Redux Remastered Edition Lands on the Commodore 64

This game has a fairly long and interesting history. The original version of The Final Attack, a SEUCK (Shoot’Em-Up Construction Kit) vertical shoot-’em-up, was developed by Damian Caynes (aka Slartibartfast) back in 1988.

Retitled “Life Force” when released in North America a few months later, Salamander was iconic for gamers.  First, this was a spinoff of another Konami arcade shooter- Gradius.  We all know how well spinoff titles usually do in gaming so it is rather interesting that Salamander was able to buck the trend.  Can anyone name […]

5 Indie Titles Prove 2D Still Lives

2D is a rarer and rarer occurrence, especially on consoles. That is saddening for a retro gaming fan like myself as I grew up playing the greats. Super Mario Bros 1/2 (site link)/3 (site link)/World/Land, Mega Man series, Castlevania (site link) etc. Even the obscure ones like Shockman (Turbo Grafx-16), Popful Mail (Sega CD), even […]

Sam’s Journey Tells Mario to put up or Shut Up on Commodore 64, Nintendo Silent

Super Mario Brothers never made it to the Commodore 64, though Hudson Soft did license the series for IBM PC computers.  That might be why Nintendo stopped allowing their games onto other platforms, till the CD-i debacle with Zelda and Mario.  That has not stopped other publishers from doing games that are quite similar to […]
