In 1985-1986, Access Software and published by US GOLD released the rather difficult but enjoyable action game 'Raid Over Moscow' for the Atari 8-bit, Amstrad CPC, BBC Micro, Commodore 64, ZX Spectrum and Apple II during the real life cold war era of the 1980's. But now, thanks to Erik Hogan (AKA Earok from the English Amiga Board) he has set about porting this very popular Commodore 64 title over to the Amiga! What's amazing is that he's managed to put all this together for a game development weekend, yes ONE WEEKEND ladies & gentlemen! I don't know about you but I can't finish anything in one weekend.
Although still very much a work in progress, Earok has so far managed to incorporate only a few levels, the hanger, defence and map screen, yet all designed using his weapon of choice Blitz Basic, with original artwork by Adrian Cummings.
Currently the game's not very optimised, missing sfx and music, and only supports a two button joystick. But it is available in various formats such as ADF Image, CD32 ISO and the straight files. Erik says that if there's enough demand he may well finish off the game!
So head over to EAB and/or Facebook to show your support now if you wish to see this C64 classic realised on the Amiga!
