New Commodore 64 Homebrew - Crackpots
« on: February 02, 2020, 03:49:02 AM »

Crackpots, a game originally released for the Atari 2600 in 1983, has been ported for the Commodore 64 by Antonio Savona, with graphics by STE’86 and music by Saul Cross.

Very similar to Kaboom!, in the game, you control Potsy, a gardener. Your task is to throw potted petunias at the bugs that are crawling up the building to devour his beloved garden.

The bugs come in waves and you have to keep up in order to kill them. At first, they come in a straight line but soon enough they will crawl up in diagonal, so you really have to plan well how to throw the pots. The gameplay is pretty basic but it gets very hard before you expect. Good arcade fun to test your reflexes!

:)  Thank you.  Funny enough, it was Dan Kitchen himself who posted the link to this on his page.  It does look really good!
