Other Systems / Ghouls 'n Goblins - A great remaster for the GX4000 + DEMO!

Ghouls 'n Goblins - Ghosts 'n Goblins overhaul in development for the GX4000 + Demo



Quote
Way back in 1985 Capcom released the start of one of the greatest side scrolling platform game series we have ever known. It featured a knight, creepy enemies, lots of graves and was extremely difficult to the point of frustration. The game I am talking about is of course ' Ghost 'N Goblins ', the first game in the Ghosts 'n Goblins franchise which appeared on many different systems such as the Amstrad, C64 and ZX Spectrum. And it is that game from the Amstrad CPC version which is getting an overhaul called ' Ghouls 'n Goblins ' and is being developed for the GX4000!

Homebrew Chat / Powerglove - The most ambitious Lazycow WIP Amiga game
« on: February 22, 2016, 12:30:15 PM »


Quote
the game was made available as an exclusive PC, MAC and Linux version based on the original with some minor enhancements, such as parallax scrolling and optional pimped spritework. But after all that you'd think the game wouldn't appear on any other systems seeing as it had gone from the retro to the modern. But during the early hours of today, RGCD has announced the Amiga conversion and in their words " Powerglove is already shaping up to be his most ambitious Amiga game to date ".

Good morning retro gamers, have we got a special Monday announcement for you! A Lemon64 member by the name of DrKhumalo has teased a work in progress Civilization style game for the C64, as ' 8-bit Civilizations '. Now I'm sure many of  you have heard of the highly addictive management game called 'Civilization' by Microprose, well this developer who is a huge fan of such games including Master of Magic has always been disappointed that there was nothing like it for the C64, at least until now.

I think after this I'm going to take the weekend off, as it has been non stop this week with some fantastic game news from across the globe, but after today my brain feels like mush ;). But anyway, hot off the press is the new C16/C64 game ' Hugohunt ' by Angelsoft, which is inspired by an Atari XE German title from the 1980's, and unlike their previous early version announcement is officially finished.

Nintendo Chat / Super Aleste (BS) - Early 90s SNES Shoot em up, translated!
« on: February 12, 2016, 22:06:18 PM »

To tell you the truth, although I did play on the SNES briefly, it was not my most preferred of gaming systems. It wasn't until much later in my years that I finally had the chance to play all the fantastic games it had to offer, both English and even in Japanese. Once such shoot 'em up game ' Super Aleste (BS) ' published by Toho and part of the Aleste series by Compile, was recently given the translation treatment by tettsui77 and is now fully English translated as version 1.0.

Atari Chat / Rainbow Walker - Atari 8bit classic gets an Atari 5200 port
« on: February 12, 2016, 22:03:37 PM »

Created in just 1.5 days by Wrathchild and noted as a conversion based on a top Atari 8-bit game, comes a new Atari 5200 port of ' Rainbow Walker ', which also appeared on the C64. First released way back in 1983, designed by Steve Coleman and published by Synapse Software. You play as a strange little creature called Cedrick, who hops on a dark and colourless rainbow as a goal to colour it and advance to the next level.

Homebrew Chat / 1541 Diagnostic Cartridge - If you've got a C64 1541 disk !
« on: February 12, 2016, 22:02:23 PM »


Quote
When we first did C64 reviews, the very first device that we showed off was Shareware Plus's 'uCassette'. It enabled users of the C64, to play tapes via your mobile or audio equipment directly into the C64 as MP3 or Wav files. Well that same company has sent us a new cartridge called the ' 1541 Diagnostic Cartridge ', which if you've got a 1541 disk drive, would be a highly regarded item to add to your ever growing list of accessories

In 1989 Players Premier released the rather enjoyable shooter ' SHARK ' for the C64 and ZX Spectrum. It had a great menu tune by Digital Light and Magic, with coding, graphics and sound by Phillip Ruston. Some would class it as a Cybernoid clone as the game play is very similar with screen switching, missiles being fired from above and below, static objects shooting at you and difficulty being at an all time high. Thankfully you can now play this game again as Fairlight have re-released the game with a trainer, as a test for preserving digital media. ( The original was cracked in 1998 by Remember ).

Defecto Digital are back with another game, as after releasing their previous game ELF which was an adventure based on the arcade version released by Ocean Software in 1992, has now teased the next game in their Amstrad line up. This time an arcade platformer and called ' Heroes Rescue! ' is being developed using AGD and will star none other than the character FRY from Futurama. In this early development tease testing Scroll and Sprites, it shows Fry avoiding enemies, jumping across platforms and finally, rescuing heroes, that originally appeared in both TV series and Movies.

Remember when we gave you the heads up for Defecto Digital Studios in development Amstrad CPC Adventure, which at the time was only in Spanish? Well we've just been given a tweet from the developer that this game is now in English! What great news indeed as that means all of our English readers can now play this new Amstrad Adventure which is based on the arcade version released by Ocean Software in 1992!

Homebrew Chat / Railways : An Amstrad Railroad management game in dev!
« on: February 12, 2016, 21:57:23 PM »


Quote
Before I even read the description of the game, just looking at the above image gave me nostalgic memories back to the 1990's game ' Railroad Tycoon ' by Microprose Software Inc. It was a game in which you managed your own Railroad company from placing train lines, creating stations and making as much profit as possible via goods or passengers. And that's basically where this new game ' Railways ' is headed as it too is a Railroad management game, but this is in development for the Amstrad CPC and developed by Trewdbal.

When Indie Retro News began its life some years ago, most of our hardware reviews have either been for the C64 or specific Everdrives for retro based consoles such as the Sega Mega Drive and NES. However we have never done a review of anything for the Amstrad CPC 464 or 6128 because at the time there were no new external SD attachments specific for that hardware, at least until now. This is the 'DDI3 USB Floppy Emulator for the Amstrad CPC 464' by a rather talented designer by the name of Zaxon also known as Piotr Bugaj, who has created some impressive pieces of kit for systems such as this Amstrad and even the ZX Spectrum!
