|Chang's Adventure (C64) released :: posted by Jason :: 19 Jul 2011|
Chang is in the process of having an adventure (which goes at least some of the way to explaining the title of new C64 release Chang's Adventure) which sees him fighting surprisingly visible ninjas, gathering treasure and ultimately attempting to get clear of the maze-like island with a boat. Anybody who enjoyed Willow Pattern should automatically give this one a spin.

|Loderunner (C264) released :: posted by Jason :: 13 Jul 2011|
Kichy of Assassins does love a good port; this time he's taken the source for Broderbund's Loderunner (which was disassembled by Honz in 2010 and uploaded to the CSDb) and pushed it into the Plus/4; there's a hundred and fifty challenging screens in there, along with an integrated level editor if they don't prove difficult enough.

|Valley Of Treasures (C264) released :: posted by Jason :: 10 Jul 2011|
The C64 version of Valley Of Treasures, which was released last month, has now been "persuaded" by Kichy to make an appearance on the C16 and indeed the rest of the 264 series! As before, it's a text adventure without the need to actually type commands where the player is charged with collecting five treasures for the omnipresent Game Judges.

|Space Harrier (Atari 8-bit) released :: posted by Jason :: 05 Jul 2011|
Well, it's taken nearly a decade to arrive (in fact it predates Oldschool Gaming and was one of the projects that inspired the website in the first place) and there were times where it seemed to have become just slightly lost along the way, but Chris "Sheddy" Hutt's conversion of classic Sega rail shooter Space Harrier has finally made it out of the Fantasy Zone and into the Atari 8-bit. Get ready!

|HyperViper (C64) released :: posted by Jason :: 03 Jul 2011|
Over in Psytronilk-land they've gone all snakey, releasing MSX conversion HyperViper for the C64. There aren't any snakes on planes, but they are let loose within a scrolling maze and can be consumed as long as the eating process starts at the end without any fangs.

|Forgotten Forest (C64) released :: posted by Jason :: 26 Jun 2011|
Jon Wells' Sideways SEUCK (Shoot 'Em Up Construction Kit) for the C64 has made it possible to do all manner of things with Sensible's editor but... a Forbidden Forest clone? That's what Forgotten Forest seems to be and, because it's by SEUCK maven Alf Yngve, it looks pretty decent with it!

|Valley Of Treasures (C64) released :: posted by Jason :: 26 Jun 2011|
Valley Of Treasures is a text adventure with a quirk; there's no need to type commands since they're entered through a keyboard-driven user interface. There are five treasures in the titular valley that need to be located and handed over to the Game Judges.
