Reset Magazine #08 Released – with a Focus on Adventures
23.02.2016
Written by Poison

The eighth release of the English language magazine „Reset“ has a focus on Adventure games.

We’re featured twice in this particular issue: with D42, and with Heroes & Cowards by Out of Order Softworks.

Heroes & Cowards scored 9 out of 10 points for its great graphics, entertaining story, and its interesting locations and items – and was rated „Reset… RIPPER!“
The catchy soundtrack was popular with the testers as well.

Not to forget the D42-Adventure System that allows you to easily build your own graphical adventure for the C64; programming skills not required. The D42-Adventure System scored 8 out of 10 points in their test.

You’ll find these and many more interesting tests, information and C64 game news in the current issue – get it right here: http://reset.cbm8bit.com/?dir=issue8

Written by Poison

It’s still uncomfortable, windy and cold outside – the ideal wheather to take a short walk to a kiosk around the corner, get a hot coffee to go along with the current issue #33 of Retro magazine, and, back at home, sip the hot brew and enjoy a well-written review of Leisure Suit Leo 2.

When you’re done sipping and reading Retro magazine from front to back, it’s time to turn on your 64 and load Scene World #24. The current issue of the popular English disk magazine offers some comprehensive articles including an interview with none other than Volker Rust, who writes about his beginnings on the C64 and the upcoming blockbusters from Out of Order Softworks (spoilers ahead! 🙂 ).

resetIssue 5 of Reset Magazine features a review of Leisure Suit Leo 2 Deluxe Edition.

Buyers of the German version also get a remastered edition of the game, plus an extra disk with the rare first installment.

 

 




Scene news: Our latest web-discoveries concerning D42 and Leo 2
03.10.2014
Written by Poison

Spanish retro-blog „Commodore Plus“ has published two extensive reviews of the D42 – Adventure System and Leisure Suit Leo 2. Those of you who know some Spanish might want to have a look. And for those who refuse to learn any foreign languages: There are some photos and screenshots, too. 🙂

Virtual Dimension has once again done some field maintenance with “Vor Ort”, this time on Gamescom 2014. You can watch their entire report on retro computing on YouTube.

Impatient folks can fast forward to minute 10:47 where you can see the D42 Adventure System presented to you by our very own, suit-clad Out of Order expert Volker Rust. You can catch the occasional glimpse at Leisure Suit Leo 2, too.

 

The last time the folks at Virtual Dimension visited us on the spot was back in 2003 was at Vision Party. Those of you who want to indulge in more memories should stop by our press column and browse through reviews and videos.




Scene news: Reset magazine issue #4 released
25.08.2014
Written by Poison

Reset is a free „C64 only“ PDF magazine with a focus on gaming.

On a whopping number of 78 pages you can find, for example, up-to-date test for…

  • Commando Arcade from the Group Nostalgia – a surprise hit that should be part of any C64 game collection!
  • Guns & Ghosts from the creative duo of Georg „Endurion“ Rottensteiner and Trevor „Smila“ Storey, which you can obtain at Psytronik or RGCD and which we have already warmly recommended in a previous Protovision newsletter.
  • Bellringer III from Geir Straume, which has an 80’s charm and a gameplay in the tradition of hunchback.

As well, our 4 Player compilation (that has been sold out in the meantime) was tested extensively on the latest Amiga User Group (#CommodoreClub) meeting in Melbourne.
Sold out? Yes. But do not worry. You can still get the games individually as downloads (Bomb Mania, Hockey Mania, Team Patrol) or even as limited edition (Tanks 3000) from our shop.

Written by Trixter

The final Datastorm party (February/Gothenburg-Sweden) sparked the last time a veritable explosion of high-quality demos, images, and music for the C64.

Fairlight, Offence and Prosonix. Softwareproductions in the merge of these legendary groups represent the finest demo quality and achieve regularity top rankings on various demoparties – so is also their latest demo „We Are All Connected„. This masterpiece scored the first place and as a matter of course once again Protovision was (elaborately staged) greeted.

Congratulations to the won C64 demo competition, we thank and salute hereby back and we love you!

In any case, you have to have see and hear the other productions of this fantastic party – this is of course done best on a real C64! 🙂
