CROSS CHASE gets a review in RetroGamer!

After 4 months of coding, I get some reward! My little multi-system 8-bit game gets a nice positive review in RetroGamer!

lundi 21 août 2017


For about 3 months I gave been working on a retro-programming project:
create a simple enjoyable game for most 8 bit computers.
So far I have supported:
- all 8-bit Commodore computers (including the rare CBM-II and native C128 in both 40 and 80 column mode)
- Apple][ and Apple//e
- Atari 400/800 and Atari XL/XE computers
- Oric 1 and Oric Atmos
- ZX Spectrum
- playable Amstrad CPC
- working on VG 5000, MSX and SC 3000

The game comes in two versions:
- STANDARD: for computers with more than 16k of RAM (21k is the current minimum)
- LIGHT: for computers with less than 16k (13k is the current minimum)


Escape the enemies and lure them (except for the skull) into the exposive mines.
You can find a gun that can be used on all enemies.
Lots of power-ups!

This is my first article on this blog.

This blog will serve both as a showcase for my retro-computing collection, as well as an archive for some retro-computing experiments.

I would like to start with some of the items in my personal retro collection.
