Icicle Race - Push the blocks in this puzzling C64 game by RGCD
I've heard your cries and you want something different other than a platformer. Well now it is RGCD's time to shine as they too have released a game for the RGCD C64 16KB Cartridge Game Development Competition 2015, but unlike the others this isn't a platformer! This is an Arcade Puzzle game called ' Icicle Race ' and the aim of this rather nice game, is to clear the level from all flames without burning yourself to a crisp!
For all you C64 owners out there that need something to really challenge that brain of yours, then Icicle Race could give you a real good thinking challenge. Throughout the game your little guy must push all the blocks onto the flames to put them out. The problem is, if you push the wrong block or don't think ahead, you may have no way to put that last flame out and thus it's either a quick burn or a game restart. It really is that simple to understand, but if you think the entire game is going to be as easy as the first level, then the many other levels and worlds will drive you insane!
With top quality programming by John Christian Lønningdal, great detail, fantastic character animation and another top quality soundtrack by Saul Cross, ' Icicle Race ' is a worthy challenge to the competition, but the question remains, can you complete all the worlds?
