Huck On The Mississippi, Commodore 64

Adventures of Huckleberry Finn is a novel by American author Mark Twain, which was first published in the United Kingdom in December 1884, and in the United States in February 1885. Huck on the Mississippi is a new Commodore 64 game by Frank Abbing which is loosely based on the original novel.

Info:
After a break of 35 years, I have finished programming this game for the Commodore 64. There are ten levels with a final boss, after which the game will be completed. I think both are motivating. There are probably people who will play through the game in a few minutes, and others who will lose all hope at the increasingly difficult levels and try again and again. Use the joystick in Port 2 to control your player on a log. Move up/down and left/right to pick up objects from the water and collect points. Avoid contact with wild ducks, crocodiles and other dangerous animals.

Super GP 64, Commodore 64

Super GP 64 is a racing game for the Commodore 64. It's a simple arcade style racer, inspired by games like Pitstop and Pitstop 2. It's a port and reworking of Super Monza GP 2 for the VIC 20. The game now features the Bahrain circuit, as well as the four circuits from SMGP2 (Monza, Monaco, Spa and Interlagos). An in-game circuit map with location indicator has been added. Colliding with cars results in damage, which can be repaired by entering the pits during the race. More damage equals slower maximum speed.

Compete in a single race on any of the five circuits. Alternatively, play them all in sequence in the Championship mode, where you have to complete every race with a podium finish in order to continue. Choice of three difficulty levels, which are determined by starting position and race length.

Datahits Rewound, 1980's C64 remixes now available as a Free Download!

Datahits Rewound is a 2023 remake of a 1980s music cassette containing remixes of the themes from five popular Commodore 64 games, made in the interests of preservation, documentation and nostalgia. Although a digital version of this tape can be found online, the only available source was the retail compact cassette and despite remastering efforts, the quality of any recordings is poor. The aim of this project was to reproduce each track as closely to the original as possible, with the highest quality audio possible. The project leverages the SID Effects library, which provides very high quality recordings from real SID chips in stereo. Mixing, production and cover art by Dan Tootill.

1982 Namco Dig Dug Arcade Commodore 64 Port

Here's a very cool Commodore 64 port of Dig Dug, originally an Arcade game developed by Namco way back in 1982.

This version includes all the levels from the original Arcade game. There are 15 different levels of which the last 4 are repeated until reaching level 256 (the kill screen). If, however, you are interested in a less repetitive and therefore more stimulating version of the game, try Dig Dug Revival, where the levels are procedurally generated and are always different from each other and from game to game. You can download the Revival version here: https://lowcarb.itch.io/dig-dug-revival-c64.

StatMat recently released Version 5 of his OneLoad64 Games collection. This is a collection of over 2000 Commodore 64 games all in .crt format. Instant loading, and still keeping the fantastic loading music and familiar title screens. No cracks, intros, or trainers in this collection, just pure quick load gaming! Here's a few words from StatMat.

OneLoad64 v5 has finally been shared with the subscribers of my YouTube channel and I will share more widely next weekend.

You can always get earlier access by subscribing if you wish (https://www.youtube.com/StatMatsVidz). It costs nothing and helps with me grow my little channel and help show your appreciation. I plan to be releasing some new content covering the process of adding games to OneLoad64 soon.

Thanks for everyone's support and understanding on the slight delay this year. The original plan had been to release at Christmas, but having discovered a few last minute issues, we thought it was best to hold off until they were resolved.

Robocop AGA Work in Progress, Commodore Amiga

Way back in early October 2021, Daniel Allsopp started work on an Amiga AGA version of the classic Amiga game Robocop. The engine runs in 64 colours, utilising 64 pixel wide sprites for the background parallax on level 1, and a 4x fetch mode. Graphics were converted from the arcade originals, and reduced down with Paint and Photoshop into various banks of 16 colours. Daniel recently shared his latest update, and it's looking amazing. As this is an ongoing work in progress project, there is no download, and it will be a long time before any kind of official release. However, you can follow Daniels progress from the thread on the English Amiga Board.

-Palette Optimisations
-Optimised RoboCop Sprites

-Reworked HUD

Castlevania AGA, Commodore Amiga

A remake of the 1986 original but with visuals inspired by Castlevania Chronicles and other non-8 bit titles in the series.  The  goal was to provide a playable and pure version of the original Castlevania but with an Amiga flavour. Not a port of the Sharp X68000 or PlayStation "Castlevania Chronicles" game, it only happens to use many level tiles and sprites from that game because it's a practical rendition of how OG Castlevania would look in 16-bit or 32-bit. For the Sharp X68000/Castlevania Chronicles Amiga project check this developer.
