Huck On The Mississippi - A C64 game that's inspired by The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn

If you're looking for a game that's fun for all the family, then make sure to check out Frank Abbing's latest Commodore 64 game of Huck On The Mississippi. A game that that looks to be inspired by Huck and Jim's Journey Down the Mississippi River in the Novel, The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn by Mark Twain. To coincide with this news, not only has Saberman provided a video showing the game in action, but the creator has provided some info about the development of the game that was originally started way back in 1987.

And here's the info from the website "Huck on the Mississippi, C64 game, action, 1987/2024. After a break of 35 years, I have finished programming this game for the C64. There are 10 levels with a "final boss" after which it's over. I think both are motivating. There are probably people who play through the game in a few minutes, and others who despair at the increasingly difficult levels and try again and again. Use the joystick in Port 2 to control your player on a log. Move up/down and left/right to pick up objects from the water and collect points. Avoid contact with wild ducks, crocodiles and other dangerous animals"

  1. Getting Park Patrol vibes!! :)

  2. Very much so! Simple but charming.

  3. Interesting concept, however adding some bonuses, or a limited quantity of jumps to avoid animals in the most desperate situations would have added some spice to the gameplay.
