Cauldron II: The Pumpkin Strikes Back, Commodore Plus/4

Coders TCFS and Murphy along with Csabo (Music) and Unreal (additional graphics) have released a Commodore Plus/4 version of the classic game Cauldron II. I am a big fan of the first game, and the second one although not as well known, is still a lot of fun to play.

Cauldron II: The Pumpkin Strikes Back was developed and published by Palace Software as a sequel to their 1985 game Cauldron. The platformer was released in 1986 for the ZX Spectrum, Commodore 64, and Amstrad CPC home computers. Players control a bouncing pumpkin that is on a quest of vengeance against the “Witch Queen”. The roles of the two were reversed from the first game, in which the witch defeated a monstrous pumpkin.

“This time the player takes on the role of Bouncey – what a fun name for a pumpkin – who does, in fact, bounce, constantly. Your quest is to guide him through Witch’s castle (more than 120 screens!) to enact his revenge. There are six magical items – a Chalice, Axe, Shield, Crown, Scissors, and Book of Spells – scattered throughout, and Bouncey must collect them in order to complete the game. Avoid all the baddies – some of which Bouncey can shoot down, if he collects the “spark”. It won’t be easy!”

Empire Strikes Back Plus/4 Port by Sasvári Tamás Released!

Sasvári Tamás and team released the Empire Strikes back Plus/4 port today. Here’s a few words from the Plus/4 World Facebook group.

Undergoing graphic compromises, managing software sprites, reducing the color clash at its minimum, fighting against wicked bugs, in the very end Sasvári Tamás, our monumental TCFS Maestro, has ported Megastyle’s The Empire Strikes Back on Plus/4!

After a long run from far, by converting the old classic games, he has reached the contemporary game scene, converting a game released one year ago, and closing his circle of successes! And not to mention the fantastic contribution from Csabo of Legion Of Doom, spending here all his great skills into what we can easily define his own masterpiece!

Stunt Car Racer Preview. Commodore Plus/4

Stunt Car Racer was always one of my favourite games on the Amiga. Who would of thought all these years later we would see a Plus/4 version. Well.. not quite a full game just yet, maybe 'proof of concept' is a better description. It is, however, very impressive considering the graphical limitations of the Commodore Plus/4 as a games machine. Check out the video below and stay tuned for more updates.

LittleSixteen V4, A C16 Clone Board by SukkoPera

It looks like my dreams have finally come true. A brand new C16/Plus/4 compatible clone board is becoming a reality thanks to SukkoPera over at Plus/4 World Forums. According to SukkoPera, he's just ordered the prototypes for version 4 of the board.

* 100% Plus/4 compatible User Port
* 512 kB Hannes-style RAM expansion
* Onboard SID (either 6581 or 8580+Digifix) + 3rd joystick port (SID audio is mixed with the TED/Ext audio with configurable volume but direct dedicated output is also available)
* Joystick swapper
* Ability to replace keyboard MOS 6529 with 74x273 (so that 6529 can be recycled for User Port, but that one as well can be replaced with a 74x654)
* Removed FB13 in order to reduce luma/chroma crosstalk and improve video quality (Thanks @TLC!)
* Direct TED output connector (experimental)
* Pin header with all tape signals (think Internal Tapuino)
* Pin header with all IEC signals (think Internal SD2IEC)
