We’re ten days into this year’s C64 Month (#c64month, #everyoneshouldplayc64everydayanyway) and when you talk about Commodore 64 with people who haven’t touched one for a while, it’s common to start reminiscing about the classics. There’s a lot of us out there who have sunk countless hours into the well-known C64 hits of the ‘80s like International Karate +, Elite, Last Ninja, Stunt Car Racer and Impossible Mission, and they’re all still great games worthy of your time! However, I thought today I’d talk about the NEW Commodore 64 games that you can try out.
What, NEW Commodore 64 games?! Yep. There’s new games being made for the humble 8-bit micro all the time! Thanks to new development tools and the all-round general awesomeness of the C64 community, more and more people are finding new ways to create great games. Here’s a look at the ones I’ve enjoyed the most recently:
Guns & Ghosts is a really cool platform shooter for one or two players, and is so much better with a second player. You have one guy with a long range shotgun, and one guy with a short range electric…zappy…thing. Together you take on the army of the undead, and it’s an absolute riot. Imagine if Snow Bros had zombies in it. Yeah, I know, right?
