Has anyone else beside myself and Proinnsias noticed that the beginning of Cherry Blossom Girl by Air sound very like a famous C64 tune? I don’t think so, as even Google hasn’t been very helpful! Ah.. no wonder, it’s the radio mix, not the album version. I am trying desperately […]
This is so cool! I must take a look at this later. Of course, I only know one person who used GEOS, and he used it to write his letters when we swapped demo disks all of 10 years or more ago.. Hmm, knowing my hoarding abilities, I probably still […]
I’m stuck in work late, yet again, and plouging through a long list of things when I get an email titled, ‘remember me?’ from Andrew Fisher. Andrew was a member of the c64 demo group ‘Ozone’ that I formed with Ciaran Langford many a year ago. I haven’t heard from […]
The remix of the old Dutch Breeze/Robocop 3 tune on RKO is fabulous! Well worth a listen if you remember the original demo soundtrack!
Just found this page while searching for “The Great Giana Sisters”. It brought me back several years! Armalyte was an amazing game, but it wasn’t the only game by Cyberdyne Systems on the C64 AFAIR. I could almost swear I played a platformer that was released on a Zzap64! cover, […]
Yes, it’s out! You can finally run your C64 games and demos on your Nokia 7650 or Series 6/7 phone! Here’s the announcement from a few days ago! Unfortunately you have to send the games over in a text/email message, so I’ll have to boot into Windows to copy over […]
I just found this guestbook with some tempting information about FrodoS60, a C64 emulator (the same as eFrodo?) for the Nokia 7650. It could be out within a month!
Oh, I wish I had this book when I started coding on the C64! Plenty of discussion on /. about it too!
Yes, yes, you’ve all probably seen this already as it’s linked from slashdot! This operating system was originally written on the C64, occupies 42k of RAM, and has an impressive array of features, including a web browser! I’m going to watch out for that User-Agent in my access logs.. hehe
Ah! Nostalgia! I’m listening to a remix of Zig Zag from RKO linked below. This featured on the very first issue of Zzap64 that I and my brother bought. Also check out Zybex linked from the first page above, it’s an excellent horizontal shoot-em-up that I spent hours on!
