December at c64.sk
Written by Wotnau
Wow, that was a big month, December! 48 alpha-news items, this is the record so far! Keep on visiting, seeing, posting!
December was an
immensely playful month. There are: ANISO – a new game by Josh Ask
Renin Soft, an XMas game by TND (hi Richard!), and two Boulder Dash
games: Schaikdash 6 by Ron van Schaik and Xmas Boulder Dash by
Firefox. This bottle of nice gaming is cork-plugged by It's Magic
1 going public domain and five new Remember releases. Press
fire to play!
Demo-hungry? Try out: Kurt and Doris – a demo by Civitas which stirred up the silent waters of the scene is waiting for you, as well as Rock'n'Roll Butterfly and Free Fall – two music demos from CNCD. Happy 2K2 is a 4kB intro by Civitas and another release by them is a music demo named Theory of Remote Plane Hijacking. Civitas also continue with their famous magazine Publication, finally going bi-lingual (i.e. also English) in #45!. Digital Talk, another German disk mag, reached #52.
Graphic lovers will like to get Guards of Apocalypse – an IFLI Collection by Questor/Albion, and Destination – a Graphic Collection of Katon/Lepsi De.
Musicians and music fans, try Cybertracker X-Mas 2001 Music Pack or Sid 303 – which produces 303-synth like sounds.
Toolmania!!! GeoZIP v0.7, Cuneiform 0.2, Vidcom Stripper v1.0 (hi again Richard!). Enough?
What did SuperCPU users find under the Christmas tree? They got Santa Claus SCPU Demo, and the announcement that JOS and CLiPS will join into WiNGS. Personally, I find this one of a few wise decisions in today's scene.
