A China Miner Christmas! New Remake by Arlasoft for the Commodore 64

Miner Wally returns in this Christmas-themed revamp of the infamously difficult C64 single-screen platformer from 1984. But a bit of snow and a Santa costume isn't the only thing that's changed, Wally has now developed his athletic abilities beyond recognition to give you the player a fighting chance of actually completing a level and hopefully having a lot more fun along the way..

The entire game has been re-written from the ground up complete with 'modern' controls and physics together with fairer collision detection to allow your character to nimbly traverse around the screen in a more contemporary fashion, whilst retaining the THIRTY fiendish level designs from the original that 99.99% of players never managed to reach, due to the bizarre control scheme and need for split-second timing.

BURGERTIME, Commodore 64

BurgerTime, originally released as Hamburger in Japan, is a 1982 Arcade video game developed by Data East, initially for its DECO Cassette System.

The object of the game is to build a number of hamburgers while avoiding enemy foods. The player controls the protagonist, chef Peter Pepper, with a four-position joystick and a “pepper” button.

Each level is a maze of platforms and ladders in which giant burger ingredients (bun, meat patty, tomato, lettuce) are arranged. When Peter walks the full length of an ingredient, it falls to the level below, knocking down any ingredient that happens to be there. A burger is completed when all of its vertically aligned ingredients have been dropped out of the maze and onto a waiting plate. The player must complete all burgers to finish the board.

While there is already a C64 version of Burger Time from 1984, Arlasoft’s new version is much more faithful to the Arcade original. Download it here: burger_FH.d64
