Wolfling - Nesdev game on the C64 looks seriously good! [ UPDATE ]

In 2017 Lazycow released an early version of a high quality platforming game for the NES as an entry for the 2017 Nesdev competition. It gained favourable feedback during that time with one such member noting the game had nice level design, felt non linear and incredibly moody with rather nice animation. Well there's great news for a new year , as this NES game has been ported over to the C64 by the same developer with help by Zolionline, Cyborgjeff, and Pypebros and there's a new version also made available through the main website!

We first mentioned this game as a preview V1 way back in the early part of last year as an unfinished C64 game that was not only lacking areas to visit, but the graphics were sub-par, you couldn't get hurt and the character control felt a little off. Well fast forward to today and the game has much improved to the point it's not only fully playable but it is well on the way to being a top class game for 2019! The graphics are gorgeous, the level designs are fantastic, the soundtrack is tops, the enemies are a challenge and there's more than just a few rooms to enjoy. So far the only critique I can give the game is the fact the controls are a little off, as it almost feels like my character is stuck to the ground.

UPDATE : We've been told that this is the final version of Wolfling and it features improved controls and a bigger map totalling 60 screens.
