‘Break Free’ – New game for the TI-99/4A in Cartridge [Vintage is the new old] [[source]]


It has been released ‘Break Free’, a new game for the TI-99/4A developed entirely in GPL Assembler. The gameplay is similar to Arkanoid/Breakout, but with a small difference: to pass the level, you are supposed to break only enough bricks to find the key that you let you get out, but not all of them.

The game has six levels, the usual power-ups, and excellent background music.

You can check by yourself watching the video below, or try it out playing it online by accessing TI-99 Italian User Club.

[There is a video that cannot be displayed in this feed. Visit the blog entry to see the video.]

The game is available in cartridge and can be purchased at www.arcadeshopper.com for $40 (it seems there is only two units left!)

Classic Tools Retrospective: John Romero talks about creating TEd, the tile editor that shipped over 30 games [Vintage is the new old] [[source]]


Image from Gamasutra article

Gamasutra website has published an interview with John Romero about TEd, a tile editor that was used to build many games from the past (including Wolfstein,Commander Keen, etc). The article is the first of a series that will try to cover iconic game development tools.

In recent years, retrospectives of classic games have been well received at GDC, but there have been very few stories about classic game tools. This series of articles will attempt to fill that gap, by interviewing key people who were instrumental in the development of those classic game tools. (David Lightbown – Gamasutra Blogger)

John Romero is a successful game designer, programmer, and co-founder of id Software that created iconic games like Wolfstein 3D for the Apple II. Although still active in the video game industry, Romero is very often seen dabbling some retro gaming project.

Outpost - Rare Missile Command clone sees brand new Trainer release for the C64 [Indie Retro News] [[source]]


The iconic Atari game Missile Command didn't get the best of ports on the C64, (I don't think it ever got an official Atari port), so fans of the frenetic arcade blaster should definitely check out Outpost, written by Thomas Czarnecki and released in 1989. Laxity have added documentation and Trainer goodness for this version (infinite lives and/or ammo). I found Outpost has many

Retromania held Retrogaming Party in Portugal [Vintage is the new old] [[source]]


The Retrogaming  Party happened last January 13 and 14 in Portugal. Result of a partnership between Retromania website and ISPGaya, the event was divided in two days to serve two different publics. One day was dedicated to the ISPGaya students, who had the opportunity to get in contact with the most important and iconic machines from the 80s and 90s. The second day was dedicated to the retro enthusiasts that are members of the Retromania forum.

The event had the presence of machines like the ZX Spectrum, Commodore 64, Amiga and even the more modern (less old?) PC 486 and Pentium. It also had space for a Raspberry PI running RetroPie and the MIST, an FPGA-based computer that can emulate different retro computers.

It is nice to see events like this one, where the retro enthusiasts get together to exchange experiences and show to the newer generations how awesome these old machines are! Nice job, Retromania!

Now this game was first developed way back in 1985 by Digital Kamp Group, but now thanks to Hedning and a good tidy up by Zyron, the game has been released with a massive documentation, put together on a single file, bug fixed and enhanced.

Guard Duty - 2D Charming fantasy adventure game gets a Kickstarter and Greenlight campaign [Indie Retro News] [[source]]


I've always been an Adventure gamer on both my Amiga and PC, and have such fond memories of games such as The Secret of Monkey Island, Simon the Sorcerer, Fable, Kings Quest and even the Quest for Glory series.
