“Torpedo – You’re Fired!”

Alright, it's only three levels of Parallax, it just FEELS like bloody loads on an 8-bit.

Yes, I know, it’s been ages since I put a post up here. To be honest I’ve just been a little bit stuck for something to write about and pondering another “themed” sequence of articles rather than just grabbing something a bit retro and indie and writing about it. Perhaps a few mini-essays on BBC Micro games, perhaps those write-ups of Amiga indie titles of the ’90s I keep meaning to do.

In the meantime, here’s something which grabbed my attention. I’m a bit fond of Sub Hunter, an indie title for the C64 with ridiculous Shadow of the Beast parallax scrolling and rather enjoyable arcade action in a coin-op-from-1984 stylee. Well, now it’s been converted to the CPC as well so if you like your computers less brown and built by a grumpy Peer of the Realm who points at people on telly and says “your fired!” you ought to be happy. I’m guessing a Speccy version isn’t going to arrive since this is the sort of game more suited to the C64 and CPC with their chucky multicoloured graphics. Sob!

Anyhoo, if you fancy downloading the CPC version head over here; and if you fancy buying an actual physical copy to use in Lord Sirallan’s bulky old ’80 beast clicky here. That is all. For now.

    Sounds impressively impressive. Think I’ll wait a bit and grab the properly boxed thing.
