Right, so after the disappointment of the pretty rubbish Die! Alien Slime I’ve picked another C64 title out of the hat and it’s Novagen’s Encounter from way back in 1984. A quick look at some details about this game reveals that it’s similar but different to the old arcade game Battlezone and that it’s quite highly-regarded by fans of the breadbin, in stark contrast to Die! Alien Slime which is highly-regarded by nobody at all.
I’ll have an article up about it in the next few days. Until then, enjoy this picture of the box art which seems to suggest that gameplay consists of flying into the background graphics they used to use when a band performed on The Word.
Oh, and if anyone has any suggestions as to C64 games I should play then suggest away in the comments.
