Dandy +7D - Fine and Dandy bug fixed C64 release from Hokuto Force


If you're looking for a new(ish) C64 game to play, then you might be interested in playing Hokuto Force's latest bug fixed offering in Electric Dreams 1986 game of ' Dandy '. This game released all those years ago much to the excitement of dungeon hacking fans, and in a similar vane to Gauntlet, was sadly disappointed. As not only did magazines rate it rather badly at 28% but as Neo-Rio rightly says in comments "easily the most buggy game to ever be commercially released on the 64"!

Grubs - A Worms Clone previewed for the C64!


We've been featuring the C64 a lot this month, from games such as The Shadow over Hawksmill and PRECINCT 20 Dead Strange to name but a few. But there's another game that may appeal to a much wider audience with nods to an all time favourite game, and that's Team 17s "Worms" or as the developers are calling it for the C64 'Grubs'; a Worms clone that's available as a preview based around another unreleased game from 2004 called "GrubZ".

Theme Park - One of the best theme park strategy games gets a DarkwyndPT review!


Now, we’re just upping the ante, aren’t we? Still, it’s impossible to make a Bullfrog retrospective without mentioning another critical and commercial successful title, which is perhaps their most colourful game that also begun its own influential series. I’m talking about Theme Park.

Theme Park is a managerial strategy game developed by Bullfrog and published by Electronic Arts. It was originally released in 1994 for the 3DO, Commodore Amiga, DOS and Macintosh. The following year, it was ported to the Amiga CD32, FM Towns, Genesis/Megadrive, Jaguar, PC-98, Playstation, Sega Mega-CD, Sega Saturn and SNES/Super Nintendo. In 2007, it was remade for the Nintendo DS and in 2008, that remake was ported for the Playstation 3 and PSP and in 2012, it was ported for the PS Vita. In 2013, the original version was re-released for Windows and Macintosh. There’s also an iOS remake with microtransactions which was released in 2011, but it wasn’t as well received (I wonder why).

Gibbous - A Cthulhu Adventure with upwards of 70 voiced characters coming August 7th

Blazing Chrome - Seriously cool Contra styled game gets a release!


With Odallus: The Dark Call and Oniken under their belt, the developer JoyMasher are certainly no strangers to developing a varied selection of decent retro inspired games.

But now with the RGCD C64 16KB Cartridge Game Dev Compo in nearly everyones minds, he's gone and created a game called ' Super Goatron '. A brilliant little C64 game presented by The Future Was 8 Bit in which you need to destroy moving enemies as you traverse around the edge of a rather uniqly designed level.
