Knights & Demons
Posted by Luca on 2013-08-23
Knights & DemonsWhat were we thinking? We at Plus/4 World's HQ are seriously getting old, if a brand new game for Commodore 16 has popped out from a Spanish nowhere and we didn't hear a word about it! It's a real scandal, and now it's time to grasp at straws, and fix this outrageous event.

Kabuto Factory is a brand new - yet little but quite active - reality into the 8bit game developing. They cover the classic Spanish retroscene, and this means they mostly create stuff for ZX Spectrum, MSX and Amstrad CPC. Their passion for the old home computer times is so genuine to drive'em in the trade of their best games on cassette, for a paltry cost. But, as we cited before, they're quite active, and that's the reason why they stray into other platforms'developing too!
And guess what? In July 2013, they converted Knights & Demons to various systems, including the C16!

The game's mechanics are based on those EORoid games, a beloved branch of the logical type. It has been converted by Baron Ashler aka Manuel Gómez Alcaide, with additional code and support by marcos64, which was formerly a friend of Plus/4 World representing our link with the Spanish side of C16.

A commercial release for the Commodore 16 version of Knights & Demons is on the way, as announced straight from Kabuto Factory, and you can see a preview of the package you'll get.
Meanwhile, we hope that the guys at Kabuto Factory would delight us with further C16/Plus4 software in a near future.

11 Very Rare Italian Tapes
Posted by Luca on 2013-08-19
Impariamo A Conoscere Le OssaAnother must-have bunch of Italian tapes have been intercepted on eBay, and this time we really had to win the bid at (almost) any cost, because the cassettes auctioned were very rare ones. All aspects were covered: TAP files, covers, leaflets and cassette photos.

Let's start considering some most wanted hacks re-released by Playvision: Dots Eater, Bomber (Playvision) and Bolt Knight. Playvision used to have the same released games as Visiogame, even in the product code sequence but we don't know if both labels (which can be considered as twin ones at this point) had released'em in parallel matching till the very last one, and nowadays all these tapes are very rare.
Another most wanted one: Impariamo A Conoscere Le Ossa / Calcolo Dell'Ora Nel Mondo is another two programs compilation by Mantra Software. Mantra (as usual) released original software instead of hacked games, and this is a quite interesting scientific compilation of human physiology and weather science.
Back to hacked games again, with Wacky Painter (Golden Software) and Tennis (Soft). And an ultimate hint that links the fate of these two software labels: the Soft re-release of Tennis has the Golden Software label printed on the cassette!

Labirinth Magic Brush PixinAnd now for the bigger gems: hard to find utility programs labelled C.S.P. Microgame and Data Comp (the latter is another satellite label of Visiogame).
Magic Brush and Pixin are two never seen before graphics utilities both coded by Paolo Aimetti, arguably the same tools he used in order to create games like Small Jones. Now we know that Conto Corrente has been originally released under the Data Comp release, then re-released by Soft in Data Manager compilation together with other hacked programs. Supertoto (C.S.P.) (utility about football bets) and Labirinth (3D maze game implementation) has finally come to almost complete the rare softography under this label.

We really hope that we'll be able to snatch more lucky loots to win like this one. Meanwhile, enjoy this one!

Amiga Music Box 1If you like Amiga tunes and Plus/4 demos, then you're in luck: today marks the release of Amiga Music Box 1. In contains two tunes, converted from Amiga by Spektro. I (Csabo) helped out a little by wrapping them up in a little music box. There's not much else to add, give it a listen and enjoy!

A Few Hungarian Tapes
Posted by Csabo on 2013-08-05
BrekiWe're happy to report that a couple of new cover scans have been added to the database: Bear(tm) sent us the cover for Breki (an old Hungarian game for two players), and an alternative scan for Turbo 16. The artwork isn't earth shattering on either, but our inner completionist is smiling nevertheless. In addition, first time contributor Gabucino sent us the files from Octasoft's Assembler, which includes the previously missing 64K version of the program.

Thanks for these guys! Remember to keep an eye out for more missing cover scans and programs!
