I read that and thought: what are we… 1988? :slight_smile:


#42

I’d tag Martin Wendt, but he doesn’t seem to be on the forum. He was pretty active on the blog.

Wow, that’s a really big toilet


#44

There’s something about these old systems that seems to attract some people. I’m not into RTS games (any more), but found it a fitting addition to this thread. However, I actually did back one C64 game on Kickstarter last year: Unknown Realm. I selected the PC version, but they did offer actual C64 cartridges that would require the actual hardware to run.

Of Cause! Don’t say that you haven’t heard about “Sam’s Journey”?


#47

Thanks :smiley: by the way, I finally got to try the game yesterday on my Vice. It seems nice, I’ll play it as soon as I have the time :slight_smile:


#48

This gives me hope that I may one day finish my own adventure game and release it on C64. Anyone know if there is a SCUMM engine for C64 available somewhere?

I’m hoping the graphic limitations will allow me to create some art/animation that is acceptable without having to quit my day job and devote 1000 hours to practicing and still come nowhere close to what Gary can do.


#49

There are several adventure game engines (resp. adventure game creators) available, but they are very limited and none of them is similar to SCUMM.

Examples for those engines are:

It’s gotta be SCUMM-y or nothing.
I’m a bit of a perfectionist.

Ok, the games I have played the most, excluding adventure games:

  • Prince of Persia
  • Indianapolis 500
  • F15 Strike Eagle III
  • F1GP
  • Civilization
  • Transport Tycoon
  • Civilization 4
  • Stunts!

Other games I liked:


#52

Then you have to program your own engine. :slight_smile: But maybe @enthusi can help?


#53

Indy500, Transport Tycoon (deluxe) and Stunts are also in my list of the most played. TTD had an interesting bug: if you had enough money, you could buy all your competitors for free. You bought stocks for a competitor, but as soon as you bought 100%, you got also their money. Which included your money you gave them for the stocks. Wonderful.


#54

Did you play The Manager?
It’s a football manager game. I didn’t like football, but loved the game. I had an Italian version, with italian teams and players from serie A, B, and C in early 90es. You’ll like it.


#55

Oh, I forgot this one!

Actually it isn’t a game, but…
Aw, who am I kidding? It IS a game.


#56

When he is not the HULK Bruce Banner is in BANNER MANIA!


#57

So, when he IS the HULK, he’s in…


#58

I thought I have played an F-15 game but it doesn’t seem to be from this series. I can’t find it anymore.


#59

It was very realistic and complex, despite of the 320x200 resolution. Evey key on the keyboard had a function. I used to play keeping the quick reference key map under my eyes. I remember I studied the manual and stared to the box of the game for months before managing to upgrade my machine in order to get the game running.

Oh, another great game I forgot to mention:

Centurion

Nope, the only managerial football game I played is PC Calcio 7 :smiley:
