After waiting patiently in a long time, Rockstar has finally released new information related to their ambitious projects that this year’s highly anticipated – Grand Theft Auto V. The latest series of the franchise that has taken root so strongly as one of the best open world game is indeed promising some new thing. Not only the wider world with more enhanced visualization, Rockstar for the first time, inject the three main characters in it. The latest trailer has just been released is in fact intended to introduce the three characters is much deeper and get madden mobile coin cheats.


Michael, Trevor and Franklin will be the three main characters that can be used gamer in GTA V. But unlike conventional games that only allow you to choose one, Rockstar would bring the groove and conflicts together with these three characters. Through a simple mechanism, you can move the characters and stories in real-time, with the condition of each character that dynamically live their daily lives. This trailer gives a little sneak peek of what’s going on with each of these characters. Michael looks like a rich man who makes evil as adrenalin pumping, as well as escape from family problems are severe. Franklin lived in the stereotype blacks, living with gangsters and violence. While the last character – Trevor showed a trend of mental problems with his job as a drug dealer.
The latest trailer released by Rockstar this gives a little extra background to the conflict each character in GTA V: Michael, Franklin and Trevor.

GTA V itself is planned to be released on September 17, 2013, while exclusive to consoles – Playstation 3 and Xbox 360, with no certainty for PC. With three characters that you can use with a unique story and personality of each character which most attract you? Well, Trevor seems a lot more interesting than the other two, in our opinion ..

Boxed Sega Nomad [Retro Treasures] [[source]]

Coming straight from Sega's weird (and not particularly successful) era, the Sega Nomad or Sega Genesis Nomad is a handheld version of the classic 16-bit Genesis console with a lovely little colour LCD screen and not as lovely battery life. Handily, it plays the exact same cartridges the home console uses, and is thus rather bulky. Oh, and it's quite rare too, especially when coming in its original box as is the case with this Sega Nomad eBay auction.
The console on offer comes in its box with manual, PSU, and everything pictures above, has been tested, and is in apparently fine condition.
Seller ships only within the US.

Massive Cover Update [Plus/4 World] [[source]]

Lacus sent us a big pack of covers, photos and TAP files. This probably took a long time to archive, and certainly was a big effort to process, upload and add to the database. Let's see then!First off we have added everything (full cover scans, cassette photos and TAP files) for four Hungarian educational titles: A Helyhatározó, A Kérdõ Névmás És A Mutató Névmás, A Határozói Igenév and Tulajdonnevek. The last two are completely new in the database: we didn't know these existed. They are pretty neat, it might be fun to even if you don't speak Hungarian, as each one has a fun way of entering text that is unique. Those of us who do speak it - it's a trip back to elementary school, or something to test your kids with :-)On to games: we now also have all the stuff for Pattinka and Szemirámisz, as well as an alternative cover and cassette photo for Breki and Tányértorony. Next is the cover for A Nyuszi Olvasni Tanít 5. Unfortunately the cassette Lacus got no longer had the original program on it, but at least we have the cover. Judging from the back side, most likely all 6 parts had the exact same cover, with only the title replaced. Additionally, we have a new crack for all 6 parts, these include the title screen in each case.The bonus round includes: cassette photos for Kis Professzor (also TAP file!), Music-16, Térbeli Amõba; some new programs (Bolyongás A Labirintusban, Játék POKE-ok C-16-ra, Magician's Curse 5 Hungarian.Finally, Acrid also noticed one thing missing: the Blue Ribbon release of Cave Fighter. He sent it in, and we now have full size cover scans for it, cassette photo, and two TAP files. This is the version that contains a turbo loader. Check it out and enjoy, big thanks for these to Lacus and Acrid!

Classic Game Worms Released for Atari Falcon 060 [Vintage is the new old] [[source]]

I’m sure you are all familiar with the game “Worms” which was released on various platforms including MS-DOS, IBM and Amiga.

Worms is an artillery strategy video game developed by Team17 and was first released in 1995. It is the first game in the Worms series of video games. Worms is a turn based game where a player controls a team of worms against other teams of worms that are controlled by a computer or human opponent. The aim of the game is to use various weapons to kill the worms on the other teams and have the last surviving worm(s).

Insane of .tSCc. has ported this classic game with permission from Team 17 to all Atari Falcons equipped with a CT60. The basis was the disassembly of the 68040 Macintosh version of the game that Insane has worked himself through to port it to the Falcon with an 68060. The release requires the original Worms data files not included in the download for obvious reasons.

Apple II/C64 “Genius” Ported to Commodore Plus/4 [Vintage is the new old] [[source]]

Way back in 2014 an Apple II game called Genius “Into the Toy Warehouses” was released by Daniele Liverani.

Hokuto Force then released Daniele’s c64 port preview version in early December 2016 and to follow a trainer version on December 28th. You play as “Genius” and your mission is to free all the toys that have been locked away. To free the toys you have to collect keys, then open the correctly lit white doors. It’s a very odd game. On first load, I thought you just had to walk around, and on the first level, the key is on top of a locked box.

“How do I get that then?”

After messing around with the controls a bit, I then realised you can randomly fly anywhere you want in the level! This made things a lot easier and my play improved level by level. The game despite being a preview version contains 80 levels and like most puzzle games, these become more challenging as you progress. The music is nice albeit repetitive, but it gives the game a nice “Retro” feel. Controls are a bit wobbly but you get used to it after a while. A nice little game to play on a rainy day.

There are  three versions available to download, Apple II, Commodore 64 and just recently, Daniele announced on Facebook a new port for the Commodore Plus/4. Check out the screens, video and download links, as usual are below.

Z88DK – Development kit for Z80 gets new version [Vintage is the new old] [[source]]

Z88DK is a C cross compiler package that targets the z80 and consists of a C compiler, an extensive set of assembly language libraries, an assembler / linker, and a tool for generating executables in a number of formats. Development in C, assembly language or a mixture of the two is directly supported.

After one year since the last release, it is available the version 1.99B – another transitional release on the way to version 2.0. The list of changes is extensive and can be checked in full following the project link, but two important changes are related to the packaging for Win and Mac platforms:

  • The win32 and osx packages are complete and now include the zsdcc & zsdcpp binaries. zsdcc is z88dk’s customization of the sdcc compiler. Other users can compile zsdcc from source.
  • A VS2015 solution file is now available in z88dk/win32 for building all z88dk binaries except zsdcc & zsdcpp. Instructions for building zsdcc & zsdcpp can be found in the install instructions link above.

Another more behind-the-scenes change is that now the source code is on Github, which hopefully will give more visibility for the project and make easier for contributors to jump in and help.

Game ‘Fire Breath’ for Commodore 64 released after 26 years in the attic [Vintage is the new old] [[source]]

Once upon a time, young(er) Erik Hooijmeijer sent his new game to a publisher but he didn’t get any answer, only his disk back. For the lack of explanation, he just assumed the game was no good and gave up. After unburying his C64 after all these years, he found the once-rejected game and decided it was finally time to show it off for the rest of us.

‘Fire Breath’ is now available for download on the author’s blog “ctrl-alt-Development”. I am no expert but, after downloading it and playing for a while, I can say the publisher was wrong. The game is well made and fun. There are some control problems, but nothing that couldn’t be tweaked with little effort.

Fire Breath is a game about a fire breathing worm called ‘Dozo’. He ate too much chillies, and jumped into the well to cool his tongue and now has to find its way above ground again.

Dozo cannot swim, so he must avoid water and the underground is populated with increasingly strange creatures that are deadly to the touch. Fortunately he has his fiery breath and various power-ups are lying around. To proceed to the next level all creatures need to be eliminated.

Can you guide Dozo back to the surface?

You can judge by yourself downloading it from Erik’s blog following the link below.
