Before I begin i'd just like to say, that sometimes if it wasn't for our members, we'd miss out on some rather interesting game releases, and so, thanks to Marco, he's just given us the heads up for ' Akalabeth World of Doom ', which has been ported over to the C64 by Andrea Schincaglia and team. Now to raise your eyebrows even more so this isn't just any game, but according to a number of sources, Akalabeth: World of Doom was originally a game for the Apple II released in 1980, and designed by none other than Richard Garriott aka Lord British. Furthermore not only has he given this port his blessing, but the game was the predecessor to the Ultima series of games that started Garriott's career!
Now before you get too excited to play this very old dungeon crawler, it is only available as a limited edition disk with only 50 copies ready for purchase, which means there may not be any left by the time this article goes live. Plus another piece of information, it is only available on a real disk, such as it was distributed way back in the 80's by Richard Garriott himself. So cross your fingers and hope it does appear as either a cart or a D64 by those clever scene gurus such as Hokuto Force or even Onslaught.
