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!
