Grimoire Heralds of the Winged Exemplar - A grand Dungeon Crawler releases TODAY!



Quote:
Once again we are writing about Cleveland M. Blakemore's retro inspired Dungeon Crawler ' Grimoire Heralds of the Winged Exemplar'; a hyped up dungeon crawler which has been in development for many many years and was due to be released some time ago. Well after finally ending up as a Steam Greenlight success and then missing its May 29th release date, this game will be released today at the shockingly high price of $39.95!

Tried it with Kega Fusion and it works fine. Additional Levels were planed. Does anybody know if they are really intergrated? The CDDA music for the intros/menues is a nice bonus.

Mario Demo Test - Batman Group shows us impressive scrolling on the Amstrad CPC



Quote:
While many of us are eagerly waiting Batman Group's Amstrad CPC port of the classic Amiga game ' Pinball Dreams ' by Digital Illusions CE, Batman Group has once again shocked us with just how good the Amstrad CPC could've been, if games were done correctly in the past rather than many of the shoddy ports released all those years ago ( Yes you R-Type! ). As an impressive showing, a member by the name of Rhino has released a demo disk, which has some elements to simulate a Mario style game with pixel precise scroll with a new routine pixel to pixel, 50 fps overscan on the Amstrad CPC!

Once again, it's so good to see the CPC doing hardware scrolling at 50 fps

Incredibly smooth and it is in overscan !

Mario demo looks impressive for an amstrad, just a shame for cpc users that they had to wait so long to see smooth moving games on there machines and had to deal with most of there games being a jerkfest in the past!
C64 users had HQ 50hz scrolling games 30yrs ago in The Great Giana Sisters and hundreds of other games, just saying!!

Quote:
Ladies and Gentlemen the 1980's adventure graphical style is BACK! That's right, there's a game that has just appeared in our news feeds that looks very much like the oldest Kings Quest, Space Quest and Police Quest games right out of the 80's. Welcome to ' Cascade Quest ' by IceFallGames, a game built in the classic Sierra adventure game style, in which you as the player embark on an epic adventure though forests, mountains and mysterious lairs, on a mission of escape and retribution!

Grimoire Heralds of the Winged Exemplar - The unthinkable has happened



Quote:
I'm not sure if I'm dreaming or I've seriously banged my head, but as of this moment, Cleveland M. Blakemore's retro inspired dungeon crawler ' Grimoire Heralds of the Winged Exemplar'; has officially been released and is available to buy via Steam. This game which was a hyped up dungeon crawler, has been in development for many many years and throughout that time has caused much frustration in the community thanks to numerous bug fix posts and countless release date failures. But thankfully the unthinkable has happened and you can now play this dungeon crawler with up to 600 hours of play priced at £26.99 ( 10% off ) right NOW!

yeah I don't know. The game seems to want to sell itself that pricy based solely on that 600 hours of content premise. Lots of content does not make quality, stylistically the game seems to be all over the place.

Games like Grimlock just do it better, trying to mimic the classics by doing more with less. You don't need 600 hours of gameplay, you need 40 hours of really good gameplay.

Levantera Tale of The Winds



Quote:
I know many of us do love our NES games even ones that have that NES vibe such as Shovel Knight, but there's one game called ' Levantera: Tale of The Winds ' by Lasso Games that you might want to keep an eye on. Currently in Early Access and available to download as an Alpha, this game is an 8-bit action/RPG NES inspired title, whereby you can not only explore the world in an almost Sid Meier's Pirates! way, but also fight as a 2D side scrolling platformer in a game featuring an expansive world, a robust story, and a full musical score in chiptune style!

SimCity - Prototype on the NES has been found and shown!



Quote:
This news has just blown us away, as after just coming back to search through our usual gaming hideouts we have found out that a prototype of Simcity on the NES has been found and shown off as footage by Benjamin Ramirez! This famous city building game that has appeared on the PC and other platforms such as the SNES, was sadly never released even though it was announced as coming to the NES in the Nintendo Power Magazine of 1990. Unlike many other prototypes we've seen on other systems such as an earlier version of Rayman, SimCity on the NES certainly looks as if it was way ahead in development, even though it was canned

It is a real 50hz smooth scroll. I have tested the demo on my 6128, and it's perfectly smooth.

You have eyes problems or somethin' ?

Klystrack - Modern software for creating C64/NES/Amiga-style chiptunes!



Quote:
I know for a fact that I am no good at creating music apart from banging a few keys here or there which usually ends up with people leaving the room. But what I do like is listening to music such as retro chiptunes or even demoscenes and tracks found on an Amiga or a C64, usually created with software such as Protracker (Amiga) which allows people to create music without studio equipment. But what if you don't have an Amiga, a C64 or a NES? Well then, welcome to Klystrack; a tracker for making C64/NES/Amiga-style chiptunes on a modern platform that can also be used for creating audio for games!
