Title: [PWRVGS01] Cassette 50 - In partnerhip with Phoenix Ware
Post by: zapiy on October 31, 2021, 18:46:36 PM

Cassette 50 was an infamous collection of games published by Cascade in 1983 and an early example of shovelware, marketed on the basis of sheer quantity rather than the quality or playability of its games. So Phoenix Ware and The RVG Squad created a competition in the hope of creating a brand new compilation tape â€" with all proceeds after costs to be donated to charity, (this is guaranteed to be a minimum of £5 for every tape sold) â€" featuring games by C64 developers of all levels of experience, focusing on great gameplay in a mini-game format while still retaining the look or feel of a Cassette 50 game, such as it was!

The Competition ran from December 8th 2020 to March 31st 2021, we was amazed with the level of interest, lots of very good games all having to be created within the confines of some very hard and challenging rules. For those of you that know about coding, you will understand what we mean if you look at the competition page, so with that said, everyone of these games (56 in total) deserve there place on this tape.
