Memento Mori is a stunning Commodore 64 demo released by Genesis Project that won first place at the Function 2020 demo party recently. The picture above was shared by Raistlin/G*P on Twitter saying: Razorback delivered this stunning piece for Memento Mori. This is a 408 pixel wide multicolour bitmap that […]
This tweet reminded me that Retrograde had great loading music. I don’t think I’ve ever listened to the whole tune and the odd stops are jarring but it’s worth it. Steve Rowlands was a master on the C64.
Solar Jetman on the C64
This is a game I’d forgotten about until recently when I saw someone playing it on Twitch. Solar Jetman came out on the NES in 1991, and conversions were made for the C64, Speccy, Amiga and Atari ST. Unfortunately due to poor sales of the NES original the conversions were […]
Before I knew about revision control
Going through some of my old C64 discs and I found a bunch of “work in progress” demo parts and routines I was playing with. Back then I didn’t know about revision control but it was a pleasure to find these bits and pieces of code that I had completely […]
Yes, yes, another C64 demo. This is Scrollwars, released in 2013. How, just how?
An Intro to 6502 Assembler
In the bad old days of the 80s and 90s computers weren’t as fast as they are now. You had to fill ’em up with leaded fuel and they were noisy and hot and you had to keep the windows open to let the fumes out. Well, maybe not. They […]
Tunnel Vision by OMG
So, apparently this is the first demo by this developer and it’s amazing. Hell of a fire effect. I discovered this while testing the SD2IEC on my C64. Assembly64 has a “One File Top 200” directory that I was working on because the disk images have characters the filebrowser has […]
Sam’s Journey with two fire buttons
I figured out how to play Sam’s Journey on the Commodore 64 using two fire buttons! One as a normal fire button and another for jumping. C64 joysticks only have one fire button so jumping up in platform games requires you press up on the joystick. Back in the day […]
We Come in Peace Demo
This is just amazing. All done on a lowly C64 by Censor Design and Fairlight. Grab the demo from csdb. Unfortunately it doesn’t work in the SD2IEC because it has a fastloader. I should buy an Ultimate II+ or Ultimate 64 shouldn’t I?
C64 Spotted in Cash Connectors
In Cash Connectors, North Main Street Cork. €119.99 for a C64, datasette and I think 4 games. No mention of whether it’s working or not or even if it comes with a power supply. First time I’ve seen a C64 in a shop here in years. Last time might have […]
