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.

The Chaos Engine on the Commodore 64? New Video!

A while back we shared some interesting News regarding a work in progress demo of The Chaos Engine for the Commodore 64. To be honest though, this could be just proof of what is possible on the humble Commodore 64. The coder (Marv) so far, has never mentioned that it will ever become a full game, but we can only hope! Marv recently shared his latest video showing shooting recoil effects, just like the original game! It's certainly an impressive achievement so far, let's hope there's more to come!

Santa's Troubles, Commodore 64

I hope you all had a great Christmas this year, received all the presents you hoped for and spent some quality time with your friends and family. I'm currently catching up on the Commodore News after a couple of weeks of bad flu. This game may be late to CommodoreBlog, but I still think it deserves a mention, as some of us are still enjoying the festivities, turning our holiday into a long Christmas. At least that's what I do. Anyway here's a Commodore 64 Christmas game called 'Santa's Troubles' by lowcarb that I have enjoyed playing these last couple of days.

Story
A few days before Christmas, the toys to be distributed to all the children of the world have now been packaged in Santa's workshop. Unfortunately, a gang of criminals decided to steal part of the gift packages to resell them on the black market. The criminals then went to the North Pole and entered the workshop stealing as many packages as possible and, after loading their truck, fled. Shortly afterwards, one of the village elves noticed what had happened and immediately raised the alarm. Santa Claus then hastily prepared the sleigh complete with reindeer and following the tracks left by the fugitives in the snow he reached the nearest town, where the criminals had set up their den and where they had unloaded the loot. Now Santa Claus will have to work hard to recover the stolen goods.
