New game released for C64 - "Darkness"

I always find it astonishing that people are still developing new games for 8-bit systems.  I find it even more astonishing when they're not only making them, but selling them on disks, cartridges and even tapes!

Darkness is such a new game for the C64.

Darkness Features:
  • Single player arcade action!
  • 100 screens in one load!
  • Lush locations to explore!
  • Atmospheric soundtracks!
  • Intro + end-sequence!
  • Bonus mini-game + music demo!
  • PAL and NTSC compatible

Darkness is available in varying formats here.

Boulder Dash Remakes

Boulder Dash
Episode III: Final Blast

The third episode of Boulder Dash series is the ultimate challenge for die hard fans (as well as for anyone else looking for a quality time waster and nostalgia inducer).

Episode III: The Final Blast presents new levels carefully selected from other Boulder Dash games to let you take the ultimate test of your skills. It is experience that matters this time, not novelty thinking. Take the final challenge, blast it to the end.

— 32 caves copied from the very original “Boulder Dash VI” and “Boulder Dash VII” games

Exolon Remake Released

Though I have to admit that I was never as much of a fan of Raffaele Cecco's games as his many fans were, I still remember his games quite vividly and Exolon on the Atari ST was one I had played.  Probably didn't like it so much because I wasn't much good at it! :-D

Anyway, a new remake called Exolon DX is out, and it looks very impressive.  Head over to Retrospec to get it.  It's a lot prettier than the Speccy or even ST / Amiga versions!

Space Quest Prequel Released

In glorious EGA, "Decisions of the Elders" has now been released (earlier releases of parts 1 and 2 of this game had come out some time ago, but this is the combined game that encompassed parts 1, 2 and 3).

"Decisions of the Elders (DOTE) is an unofficial prequel of the famous Space Quest series.  Playing Roger's parents, it's up to you to save the legend. 

DOTE is a full length (about 30 rooms) retro game (320x200 EGA graphics, AGI fonts) with challenging puzzles. But don't worry! Even though this game is a tribute to the beloved Sierra adventure games there are no dead ends. And there is a walkthrough available! "
