Hyper Harvest - Arlasoft surprises us with yet another Commodore 64 game!

Arlasoft is another developer which has been mentioned many times on Indie Retro News , as he has created many enjoyable games such as Galaxian, Galaga, even Paper Planes. Well here we are with another Arlasoft developed game, as he has just released the C64 game of 'Hyper Harvest'. As in the words of the creator "I enjoyed playing this original puzzle game by orion_black that finished 12th in the recent Ludum Dare 52 game jam, and thought it would be interesting to try and convert it to the C64. Due to the need for smooth scrolling, the entire game board is comprised of multiplexed sprites, meaning at any one time there are up to 78 sprites visible on screen.."

In regards to how to the play the game, the developer also goes on to say "Harvest fruit as fast possible to score points and prevent them leaving the top of the screen. Each time a fruit leaves the screen the row is cleared but a life is lost. Matching fruits can be harvested in pairs horizontally, vertically, or diagonally by selecting them with the cursor and pressing fire. However, they can only be cleared if they are either next to each other or there is clear space between them.  After 8 pairs are cleared, the level (and speed) increases. Clearing an entire row of fruit will move all fruit above it down one row".
