Our good friend Alex has just informed us of the work in progress preview of the C64 - Atari 8bit port: Total Eclipse. Originally released in 1988, Total Eclipse is a first person adventure game with the ability to shoot released for the Amiga, Atari ST, Amstrad CPC, Commodore 64, PC and ZX Spectrum, however it was never ported to the Atari 8bit, until now.
Developed by Mariuszw this version is being ported over from the C64 and according to the developer the game works via the Atari in full 3D in the emulator Altirra, but he does mention it may also work on a real Atari, but requiring 64KB Ram. Currently the game is still in a work in progress state and as for now, the 3D view should be correct but the status area in game window is not updated at all at the moment.
If you wish to play the early version or discuss it, the forum link is at the bottom of this article, however if you want to see what the original C64 gameplay was like, watch the youtube video below!
