Two New Commodore 64 Games Released


Old consoles like the Commodore 64 and Dreamcast have always stayed very much alive in the minds of some indie developers, bringing us a few independently released cartridge games over the years for old consoles that we’ve all considered long dead.

The retro site RGCD recently set up their ‘2012 C64 16KB Cartridge Competition’ and with it, we get two new genuine cartridge games for the long-dead Commodore 64.

Assembloids (top video) is an interesting puzzle game created by RGCD and Onslaught, whilst Spike/Minestorm (bottom video) is a two-in-one cartridge consisting of remakes of two of the best known Vectrex games, Spike and Minestorm. Downloads of each game come free, but if you want to purchase cartridges of either game you can buy them on their respective pages for around £25 each.

Whether you want to play them or not, it’s interesting to know that consoles this old are moderately alive and receiving newly-made cartridge games still — even if they are independently released.

Buy Assembloids here and buy Spike/Minestorm here.
