Playing Warhawk (C64) [Jason Kelk] [[source]]

I’ve been playing Warhawk quite a bit recently whilst testing various recording settings for YouTube, so it’d be churlish of me to not actually talk about the game itself! And it’s another budget shooter that I’ve got some nostalgia for, … Continue reading →

C64 Roundup Weekly - Another exceptional week for C64 news! [Breaking news update] [Indie Retro News] [[source]]

This week has been another exceptional week for C64 news. We've seen a world's first C64 programming feat from Antonio Savona, a new release, news of some great looking new games, and Commodore Format's world exclusive reveal: the return of a C64 legend. This has to be my last weekly roundup for a couple of weeks while I take a holiday. So enjoy the latest, and I'll be back early

Bomb Jack Beer Edition - Enhanced classic WIP for the Commodore Amiga reaches beta 2D [Indie Retro News] [[source]]

Yet again Bomb Jack has appeared in our news feeds; a classic Arcade game from 1984 which required you the hero to collect all the red bombs on the screen to save historic places of interest while also avoiding deadly enemies such as birds and mummies! As we said before that same game which also had many different ports including the less than great Amiga port, has once again been overhauled

Even more speccy heads up has been sent to us by Zbigniew "Saberman" Zieliński, as he's come across a game called STEEL JEEG for the ZX Spectrum. Unlike the previous game we mentioned which was a puzzle game, this one is an action game developed by Francesco Forte using Jonathan Cauldwell's Arcade Game Designer, which is also based on the 1970's Toei Animation of the same name. The story

RESCUE LANDER - A special review by a new team member Rob Munns, aka The Games Helmet [Indie Retro News] [[source]]

A couple of months ago I decided to start writing reviews of ZX Spectrum homebrew games in the style of “Your Sinclair” magazine - the classic and very silly computer mag of the 80’s and early 90’s. I am very happy to have been asked to post my reviews to Indie Retro News as of today, and here is the first, David Pagett’s “Rescue Lander” from 2015. I create the reviews in the style of a

Knights - Another puzzler but this time as a ZX Spectrum port! [Indie Retro News] [[source]]

When I was a young lad my step dad used to always go on about Chess. He'd sit there for hours on end moving around pieces as if the end result would be some grand prize. It certainly wasn't my idea of fun as I was a video gamer! So how do you blend something you don't enjoy into something you do, well this game might just do it, 'Knights'. A new game for the ZX Spectrum which is a port of a

Currently available through early access with a demo to boot, The True Slime King is a hardcore

Finally after being poked left right and centre last year to set up a Patreon Funding campaign to help Indie Retro News, it's time to announce that the campaign is now live! Yes indeed thanks to a kick up the back side ;) and Chris Wilkins of those awesome Fusion Retro Books such as The Story of the Commodore 64 in Pixels and The Crash Annual 2018 reminding us throughout 2017 we've decided now

Review of the SNES / Super Famicom: A Visual Compendium [Australian Retro Gamer] [[source]]

When it comes to video gaming related compendiums, Bitmap Books has got you covered. One of their first efforts, the cleverly titled Commodore 64: a visual commpendium was an absolute ripper. We still love and cherish our C64 commpendium, especially the nostalgic buzz we get when flicking through its pages and finding games that we may have […]
