  1. In this video I do a little comparison of the Defender game on both the C64 and the VIC-20. There even seems to be a huge difference in game play when it comes to the NTSC and the PAL C64 version in favour of the NTSC version.
  2. This time no game character but a game that has been ported many times. It is amazing to see that some ports even copy the handwritten Williams by 'handwriting' their own or the company name. Then there's the explosions that are all very similar. The game screen layout including the radar - which does not really seem to work properly in the c64 version I got - is very very similar for quite a number of the ports. The two Odyssey2 games that flash in between somewhere don't really belong but do resemble the gameplay just a tad. But I had it connected so I thought ...'what the hell'...
  3. Just a quick video of me checking out the Vic-20 game catalog. This time it's Centipede. I may have to revisit this in another video as the video is fuzzy as h*ll. It plays at quite a different pace when compared to the 2600 version which is blazingly fast! Love to get my hands on the Millipede 2600 game as this is awesome and is just as fast and introduces even more action into what is basically the same game!
  4. Another Hewson game played on the ZX Spectrum, Commodore 64 and the Amstrad CPC: Anarchy a great shmup / puzzle game that is surprisingly addictive and is very playable even today.
  5. RetrogamerVX's original video found here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cBX_5HLBNEo Defender (Vic 20): 034625 Defender (Intellivision): 8175 Defender (Atari 800XL): 6725 Defender (Arcade): 1500, 4225, 4800 Defender II (Nes): 8000

    Mark plays Gemini Wing - C64 (HD)

    Gemini Wing, excuse the plural in the video title, was also released on the Commodore 64 home computer system and is actually quite a decent conversion done by Imagitec published by Virgin on the Mastertronic Plus label. It was also released as a tape game as well as cartridge. Mind you you needed to reload the level each time you played it! Quite a pain to do from tape. Bound to fail sometime. The Disk version was much user friendly although loading in the level each time you had to restart it can be somewhat of a pain and causes needles wear and tear on the 1541 drive.
  7. This mode does exist in this C64 version and also on the Atari 8-bit version of the game! The C64 port of the game shown here running on a PAL C64G (the German Aldi version with the C128 CPU) playing with two Suzo Arcade Sticks in port 1&2. I run the program on the 1541UltimateII, the first version is trained and halfway the video I realize that and load up the cartridge version that is unmodified. Intro soundtrack by Andy C. aka SynthMonkey aka ZombieAndy1979 http://www.youtube.com/user/zombieandy1979
  8. I was going to play the Amiga game but that kept on crashing on me so I chose to do the PC version instead which is very similar if not identical. A great R-type/Nemesis/Gradius like shoot'm up for PC and Amiga systems. Very nice smooth scrolling and a wonderful use of the 256 colours of the VGA palette. It spreads around 4 levels (worlds), has a nice weapons upgrade system comparable to that of Konami and Compile shooters. Nice soundtrack and great sound FX using the wonderful Sounblaster and FM synthesis. A two player mode is optional but I was unable to show you that as I didn't have a second player available to me. The game is controlled through either mouse, joystick or keyboard

    Mark Plays... Super Stardust (AGA)(Amiga 1200)

    Super Stardust is among my favourite shmups on the Sony PS3, PSP and PSVita platforms and I learnt that the game actually originated on the Amiga platform. Of course I couldn't help myself and had to try this out as well. This is a video of me booting up the game for the first time ever. The video of me playing the PSP version can be found here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AlNoM4nCU_c
  10. Minestorm (C64) A very nice shmup, originating on the Vectrex and this is a homebrew remake on the C64. Very enjoyable.

  12. I take a first look, try out this game for the first time and give my feedback on it. Published 1987, public domain Graphics & code by Alan Bond Language English Genre Shoot'm up - Space Invader Mind you I only sample the games here. Check them out yourself!
  13. Ad Infinitum on the C64 by Mr Chip Software Music, graphics and code by Shaun Southern A great little shmup with a varied number of aliens attacking you, nice attack patterns and declining fuel and overheating laser add to the difficulty of it al. Mind you I only sample the games here. Check them out yourself!
  14. Juno First is a game of the vertical shoot 'em up variety arcade game developed by Konami and released in 1983. It was licensed to Gottlieb in the United States. It's similar to Space Invaders, Galaga and the game Beam Rider. In this video I compare and play a couple of the home ports. - C64 - MSX - 2600 Check out what I think of them.
  15. In this little series 'Classic Cartridges Back To Back' I will be looking at two different ports of a particular game and choose which one I like best. This could be two ports on the same system(!) or on two different systems. This time it's Galaxians on the C64 and the VIC-20. Which port do I like best? Come check it out.
  16. In this little series 'Classic Cartridges Back To Back' I will be looking at two different ports of a particular game and choose which one I like best. This could be two ports on the same system(!) or on two different systems. This time it's A.E. on the VIC20 and the MSX. I go from VIC20 version to the MSX version and back to the VIC20. Which port do I like best? Come check it out.
  17. I am quite fond of Gyruss - it's a Galaga/Galaxian like shooter that originated in the arcades and was ported to many home systems including the C64 in 1984 released by Parker Brothers. I've made videos on this game before but today I tried to beat my all time highscore and I actually did. Can you beat mine? C64 NTSC Suzo Arcade Stick - mashing the fire button like crazy

    Mark Plays... Terraguard (VIC-20)

    Terraguard is a fixed screen shoot 'em up similar to Moon Cresta and Phoenix on the VIC-20. It was published by Creative Software in 1982 G A M E P L A Y The player controls a ship on the bottom of the screen and has to shoot at the aliens above him. There are three different aliens on each level that need to be destroyed by the player by shooting up at them. The three aliens are: jeeby-jeebys, eyes and mouths. Each alien gives a different score depending on how hard they are to take down.Destroy all the aliens and move up to the next level. The aliens have a mothership slowly descending down at the surface of the planet you're defending. To stop the descend the player needs to destroy all the three aliens. If you are too slow the ship will land and initiate it's transporter beam killing the player by beaming him/her up and probably have their brains for supper. The player gets three lives and gains a new life for each 1000 points scored. 10/10
  19. These games are though: Gemini Wing, Frenetic and Flying Shark But are they actually any good?
