Push your bike to the limits with this awesome map!
Posted by MIK on 2002-05-28
KikstartNorbert Kintzler has made a screen grab deluxe map of one of our all time fav games Kikstart and this baby is a monster! If there was ever a version of Kikstart to be played this was it! As with many of his C64,C16/Plus4 games Shaun Southern always gave us the best offering if he could, now why was that? One things for sure he became one of our heros behind the Mastertronic label and another hero was Patrick Strassen. Norbert also has plans to map every game Pat created, so watch this space! For now check out Norbert's latest masterpiece on the Maps page which was only finished an hour ago! Cheers Norbert.


Covers From Hungary!
Posted by Csabo on 2002-05-27
Legicsata CoverYes, the very first Hungarian Game Cover is finally here! Scanned by Lavina of GOTU. Novotrade has released lots of commercial games in Hungary, so there is still lots of covers and games waiting to be archived. There's 40 games listed just on our site (but there were probably more). Ironically, the cover is for Legicsata, one of the few games that we currently don't have (no download links).

Still, many big thanks go out to Lavina . Hopefully others will follow: if you have any original game covers, get those scanners working and please send them to us!


The Plus/4 Internet Archive
Posted by Csabo on 2002-05-23
Plus/4 WorldA new page is unveiled today, which has been in the works for quite a while now: Download Sites. This page complete with thumbnails lists all sites that have Plus/4 Software on them. Thanks to our web crawler, all of those links are connected to our database. We have just reached 1000 links here at Plus/4 World. c64.rulez.org now has 1600 links, due to Csabo receiving an admin login to this Hungarian site. We have more than 4600 links.

In total, Plus/4 World lists some 2130 programs, out of which more than 2000 actually has at least one download link. The rest? We're hoping someone has it and we can get our hands on them... Especially Cracker's Demo 3: anyone who has a copy please send it to us.

If anyone knows of more sites with Plus/4 software downloadable, just drop us a line.


The Original Bounder and Map up for grabs!!
Posted by MIK on 2002-05-18
When it comes to Bounder under emulation both WinEMU and Yape are the front leaders for vertical scrolling. As you may know, this is one of the hardest tricks to emulate without messing up the majority of software by trying to address the problem direct. Fingers crossed the day will come but even at the stage Patrick Strassen's stunning C16/Plus4 version of Bounder is very playable! And to prove it can be completed under emulation Norbert Kintzler has taken up the task to map the whole game which is a must for the tough journey that awaits! Hit the Maps page for your copy!

For anyone screaming for the original version (how it was meant to be seen) it's up for grabs for the first time right here!


Site Not Available......
Posted by MIK on 2002-05-17
We apologize to any viewers who could not access the site on this day. This was out of our control and at a guess our main provider may of been updating the system as they do from time to time. Regards, Lando and Csabo.


2 New Maps and 2 Covers added!!
Posted by MIK on 2002-05-16
Norbert Kintzler is back in town! The Map Master has just sent in an awesome updated map of Thrust and has also fully exsposed the sister game of this genre Rescue from Zylon! Once again Norbert has done a fantastic job and presented them this time with eye candy titles. Head into the Maps section and take a peek!

We have also added the Rescue from Zylon cover just to round up todays offerening and last of all we wanted to show off a little by adding the RARE, Commodore Plus/4 Mercenary Disk cover!


Old Treasure Found
Posted by Csabo on 2002-05-14
Thanks to Lando, we have yet another nice oldie-but-goldie available online. The Wizard and The Princess from Melbourne House is all they way back from 1985. You can't beat the old-school feeling you get from playing this game - the magic of character based graphics in 16K.

This game is also the 100th Adventure Game on our site! Download it now!


A remake of Big Mac has been released for PC!!!
Posted by MIK on 2002-05-11
Tony Kelly having released the C64 version back in 1985 went back to the drawing board that same year and presented to the C16/Plus4 a unique version of Big Mac with better graphics, sound and edge of the seat game play. It became an instant hit among gaming fans and gained the status of an all time classic on your first go!!

So there is no wonder as to why BB Software has taken the next step to remake this very game for PC. First impressions of the PC version will have you saying WOW and once you're in there is no going back just like the original. How ever you will find it's not 100% perfect, but insted just like the orignial it's an unique version in it's own right! The question is do we want it perfect? The answer is NO! Some changes over the orignial are fire ball timings, full down platform timings, Big Mac's jump is 2 or so pixels more than normal and having only made level 8 at this time your notice that level 7 has had a minor change in design. Having said that it's still Big Mac through and through and an awesome achievement to bring this to the PC. I'm in love! There are 2 things that are missing, 1st is sound and 2nd an oringial PC disk/box cover which it deserves!! Grab it now from the homepage without delay!


The Face of Tube Runner!
Posted by MIK on 2002-05-09
Coming at the very end of the commercial life span of C16/Plus4 gaming this title will always stick in the back of my mind. Not only was I crying out for something new to dig into, but also at how hard this game was! Only making level 2 before giving up which was more to frustation and the feel that one of the best in the business had just released an over priced budget game. Some day I will sit there, shoot the tubes and fully check out this game for what it's got, maybe eat my words... Who knows? :-) Anyways if you missed this title in the flesh then take a look at the neat front cover art work.


Here we grow again!
Posted by Csabo on 2002-05-07
Our own programmer Csabo has finished the Plus/4 World's Web Crawler. This internally used utility crawls most Plus/4 related websites (11 of them at the moment), collects all download links and connects them to our huge, origanized database.

At the moment we have nearly 1950 pieces of software listed, and more than 3300 download links!

Coming soon: a details page listing all 11 sites and statistics. Meanwhile, if you find any broken links, or know any additional sites, drop us a line!


New Demos Section
Posted by Csabo on 2002-05-03
The webmasters of C16.DE have opened up a new section for demos. The german site has been an excellent source of games, and now we can even find some cool demos from the golden days of the Plus/4. For now, only one D64 disk is available with 5 demos. They promised to post more in the following days. Head on over now to check it out!

Mike Dailly's Minus4 on the Acorn?
Posted by MIK on 2002-05-02
Mike was surprised to learn his own source code (which he forgot he released) has landed on the Acorn!

Now do we all rush out to buy one of these beasts just to see it? I think not, but to anyone that owns one can grab a slice of the action right here. Many thanks to Mike Dailly for this news.
