NEWS FROM THE C64 SCENE: Mini-Reviews: New Psytronik games
16.09.2016
Written by JTR

Our fellow distributors over at Psytronik have released a huge amount of games lately, so we testplayed them for you.

hessianHessian:
Covert BitOps new game reminds of the brilliant Metal Warrior series and is a supernice game that we wholeheartedly recommend to you.

 

 

 

supercarlingSuper Carling the Spider:
You can see that this Vic-20 game conversion was made with a lot of heart. Thumbs up for the impressive one man show. The music is fabulous and the game itself is slick to play.

 

 

 

eotgEye of the Gods:
Quite a good game, actually. You wander through a dungeon finding power ups that give you new powers for reaching previously inaccessible parts of the game.

 

 

 

barnsleyBarnsley Badger:
Fun to play. The game concept and also the steering are easy to get into. No unfair moments! The game feels huge.

 

 

 

mazeofthemummyMaze of the Mummy:
This one stands out as it has a very unusual and clever game concept to it. It is not an action game, you have to solve labyrinths. It is not an original, though, but a conversion of the PopCap game „Mummy Maze“.

 

 

 

mylifeMy Life:
Well made, nice gfx, but we were not good enough. We did not pass the first level and found it highly frustrating to play. Therefore, an accurate simulation of life.

 

 

 

honeyHoney Bee:
A simple „avoid and collect“ game with music from our very own Joachim „Yogibear“ Wijnhoven.

 

 

 

Another good news is that Protovision and Psytronik want to cooperate more in the future. Maybe we can offer you a selection of the best Psytronik games in our shop soon.

RGCD has released an updated version of Tiger Claw as a paid download (a cartridge version was only available in combination with a kickstarter campaign).

Tiger Claw is a nifty little „beat and run“ game with a very complex and subtle steering to it.

And: the new version has a „versus“ mode that lets 4 fearless gamers compete against
each other – naturally with support for our 4 Player Interface!

Written by JTR

The Forum64 Game Competition that has brought us a couple of really good adventure games last year is now officially a cooperation project from Forum64 and Protovsion!

forum64
New is:

  • The winner gets his own game in a professionally printed box from Protovision (and most probably also an offer for a distro of the game)
  • Protovision offers help to the competitors in case they ask for general support or need a musician/graphician for their project
  • All who hand in a game receive a 5 Euros voucher for Protovision downloads
  • In the future, signing up to the compo will also be possible through the Protovsion homepage, i.e. a Forum64 account is not required anymore

Of course, all participants are still encouraged to release intermediates and also the final compo version of their game as freeware!

Wireless internet is now possible also on the C64. Leif Bloomquist’s Commodore Wifi Modem emulates a C64 modem and is therefore compatible to the Wave and older modem software. It is not compatible to programs that expect an RR-Net. The module plugs into the user port.
