Jay Miner?

All in all, it's probably Mr C5, and that's hard to say for a C64/Amiga guy. :D

Eye of the Moon

Eye of the Moon was intended as the third in Mike Singleton's series after Lords of Midnight and Doomdark's Revenge , but of course it never actually saw the light of day. I seem to remember that at least one magazine of the time previewed the game, complete with some work in progress mock-ups of t...

But it's sure you didn't know that C64 originally was going to be released as a console. Because of the fall of video games crisis....

Yikes! I remember having the C&VG poster of her on my wall, even though I had no interest in the game at all, not being much of a fan of beat-em-ups.

Heroes of Karn from Interceptor for the C64. Horrible parser, excruciatingly slow-drawing graphics (yet strangely mesmerising) and some good atmospheric tunes, but it was the first game I bought, played and eventually completed on the C64. Mind you, it was a good six months between me getting a C64 ...
