Have we got some special news for you and it's a game that C64 owners may well rush to their attics and get their hardware out for after 30 years of non usage just to play. Brick Bambi has fully announced with the second video, of a C64 work in progress graphical adventure port of the "Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade " Amiga, PC, Atari ST and Mac release. First mentioned way back in 2013 as a teaser, this latest port was never originally released on the C64 and as such the developer hopes to push the game to a feature packed title and one that most C64 owners would be proud to have in their collection.
The developer has noted many new features that are certainly worth a mention during development, especially from the first to the latest video. Features such as the game being written in 6510 ASM, the possibility to interact with items such as bookcases, doors and windows, more fluent character movement, improvements to the SFX and finally improvements of converting original EGA GFX to the special C64 MC Bitmap GFX with its limitations.
But before you rush off and try to find a download link, as of yet most of these are just demo's, as stated. In honour of this great software company and of the amazing Commodore C64 I decided to convert a part of the game to C64. Many greatings to Ron Gilbert, David Fox and Noah Falstein. The whole Demo fits into one .d64 file and At this time I am working on the 3 Part (Roman catacombs). This part will be placed on another .d64 file.
So lets hope for a proper release in the next few years! (If there is anything we've missed we will update the article as necessary)
