News -    

(Tim) C64 release bonanza! - Out this month are some awesome C64 games and previews 

Empire Strikes Back C64 Fan version from MegaStyle 

40 years after the Atari and Intellivision games were released, Megastyle is now proud to present to you: The Commodore 64 fan version of the original Parker Brothers game "Empire Strikes Back". We have tried to remake the Atari 2600 version into a Commodore 64 version, but also added our own touch to the game. 

https://megastyle.itch.io/esb-by-megastyle 

NEW RALLY-X (news item from Indie Retro News) - The original game Rally-X was an overhead maze game released in the 1980's by Namco in which you drove around a maze like screen collecting flags for a high score and avoiding other cars or well play placed rocks. This latest version however by Jake79 is not only coming on really nicely and sounds fantastic even at this preview stage, but the game is well on its way to completion, and we may have a final version in the near future.

Download - https://www.dropbox.com/s/s402tkv784yjh8i/rallyx64v035.prg?dl=0 

Munchkin 64 - Re-live Munchkin, the classical maze-eater (also known as K.C. Munchkin on the Magnavox Odyssey 2) ported to the legendary 8-bit computer Commodore 64 by Pretzel Logic  

Comes packed not only with the original game (including random mazes and maze editor), but also ten user mazes and an arcade version with 96 different levels, 58 mazes and new challenges for Munchkin along the way.
