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

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

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.

Written by JTR

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!
