New retro-games site

One of the annoying things about being a fan of independent games for old systems is that there are so few sites catering for them. There are many sites which list games and provide downloads (some of them even do it legally) but they tend to concentrate on the commercial releases.

So it’s with a great deal of happy happy joy joy that I can tell you all that a new site has appeared with a large number of Amiga “Public Domain” (ie freeware) releases available to download along with some commercial titles (which the site maintainer claims to have obtained permission to host) and C64 games. The site is called The Games Coffer. I suggest you clicky on over there and check it out.

    We clicky-ed and now thank you. Quite a discovery that coffer.

    Going through 16-bit era indie titles is like a lucky dip, there’s so much great stuff and so much crap. I noticed they have the appalling freeware homage to ‘Atic Atac’ on the site (which has precious little to do with the original game) but they balance that out with stuff like ‘Tetris Pro’ which is still probably the best ‘Tetris’ clone ever written with superb music.

    Oh, how I wish I had the time needed…
