Merry Christmas to everybody in the
C64 world. We have a
few presents for you to enjoy during the festive period, while we carry
on producing stuff for this good old machine throughout 2012.
TND JaC64 Page back online
What a good
time to relaunch our TND Room. Because of a lot of maintenance required
with the pages. We have been keeping busy fixing this page in the
evenings. The newest games, including what's been added to download
today. We do hope you will have loads of fun playing our games (and
contributor's productions). We feel releived that this page is finally
back online. There's also a bit of history about each of the TND games.
The games from contributors just have credits. Have
lots of fun gamers!
TND GAMES ROOM
New contributor's games -
SEUCK Fans will
be pleased to hear that we have some brand new contributor's releases
for the TND web site. I have also added those on to the TND Games room
as well. Hope you will enjoy the titles, which are as follows::)
Destroy all Robots X21 by Roberto
Destroy All Robots X21
Roberto brings us his latest shoot 'em up construction kit game. Which
is a game in which you have to blast robots. Well, I think that's what
it's all about. :)
Strike Team Alpha by Carl Mason
Carl brings us this stealth game, inspired by Commando, or Mercs.
Strike Team 1 and 2 appeared on the Commodore Zone cover disk, and both
games played very well. During Summer/Autumn 2011, Carl has been very
busy working on a new sequel (or new missions) of the game and what a
corker of a game it is too. This game features a brand new title
screen, and some military style in game music all added by me as well.
Great game :)
Strike Team Alpha
Alf Yngve has impressed us yet again with another amazing SEUCK
creation. This is a tribute to the classic Firebird game, Warhawk.
Grayhawk has some nice graphics, really fast paced game play and also a
new front end with music by me. This is the first game to have used my
new tape loader game, Happy Blocks :)
Purge 101 by Anthony Burns
Anthony surprises us with Purge 101. An attempt at making an Operation
Wolf style of game. With normal SEUCK it doesn't work that well, but
after importing this into the SEUCK redux source. The game worked out
very good. It features a new front end, and a nice (ish) logo drawn by
me. We do hope that you will enjoy this creation :)
TND Goodies roundup
Sheepoid released today
Sheepoid has been released today courtesey with The New Dimension. You
are now able to download this nice and rather funny Jeff Minter tribute
game from our web site. If you really like this game and would like a
professionally mastered tape and disk versions for your real machine.
Sheepoid 2 - Woolly Jumper (Special
The final full game is unfortunately not quite ready for release
as we are still working on finishing it off and expanding the game. So
instead I have released a special .tap / .d64 version of the RGCD compo
game, while you're waiting for the final version.The game features a
special Rack It look alike tape loader, and a nice loading picture by
Steve Day (Thanks dude!).
And that round's the Christmas updates. See you in the new year with
more awesome news. Don't get too drunk over the festive period (I bet
that has spoiled your fun eh?). Have a very Merry Christmas and a Happy
New Year :)
Please be aware that The TND web site (Our own productions front) will
be very quiet through
until December. We will however be releasing some new releases for
Decemeber 2011, including the final version of Woolly Jumper. We will
be continuing to add news/contributor's games releases on to the
contributor's page. We have some surprises in store for December 2011,
so you had better wait and see. :)
Just to let you know that the TND
JaC64 page is currently under maintenance. For some reason when
selecting a filename from the menu, we had a READY. RUN. READY. prompt.
Unfortunately this page couldn't be resolved so I am working on some
additional pages which will automatically run each program that you
select on a separate page. There will also be a brief history and
playing instructions on each game as well.
TND JaC64 Page under maintenance
This will be our final update until
Christmas 2011. So here's what we have in store Christmas Time
- There will be not 1, 2 but probably 3 or more new games
released on to the TND web site.
- The Games Room (JaC64 page) will be fully functional
- Plus one more nice surprise for you all.
So on Christmas Eve (As I will be offline Christmas Day), keep an eye
out for the prezzies :)
I have received an email regarding
the TND Games Online page not being functional when online and
uploaded. This appears to be true. There seems to be a fault on that
particular page. Unfortunately I have not had time to take a look at
the problem. I will look into this problem as soon as I get the time.
If all doesn't go according to plan, then I may have to reprogram the
TND games online page again.
TND JaC64 Page not functional
Time for some sky high esponiage
action with the latest sideways SEUCK game from Roberto Ricoppio.
Seventh Mission is a game in which you fly a helicopter through day or
night, blasting the living hell out of those enemy spies by land, sea
or by air. Enjoy.
New contributor's game - Seventh Mission
Roberto Ricioppo has contributed
yet another SEUCK game. F7 Cars Target. It's a sort of shoot 'em racer,
created using the vertical scrolling SEUCK.
New contributor's game - F7 Cars Target
Drive through to F7 Cars Target
You may have noticed that
there has hardly been any regular updates recently. Well, the reason
behind this is that I have been extremely busy with the Shoot Em Up
Destruction Set 2, and also Woolly Jumper. You'll find those in the
TND64.blogspot.com address. A .D64 and .TAP WJ will be released on 25th
December 2011 - If we get it finished in time that is. :)
Roberto Ricioppo has contributed
yet another SEUCK game. Wars for the Conquest of Space. A space battle
in which Earth tries to make peace with the civilizations from the
entire galaxy. The only problem is, that it's so hostile - a war has
broken loose between two of the alien empires.
New contributor's game - Wars for the Conquest of Space
Wars for the Conquest of Space
Roberto Ricioppo has contributed
yet another Sideways SEUCK game production for the contributor's page.
This time round it is time for the well know spy related car chase and
shooting - just like in the spy related action movies. Well, you are on
a hunt to get to Agent 005 as he's done a bad thing threatened to cause
chaos around the city. You best read the game page to find out what's
New contributor's game - Hunt to Agent 005
This way to Hunt to Agent 005
It is time for yet another
contributor's game. Roberto Ricioppio has provided us yet another SEUCK
creation. This time it was created using the Sideways Scrolling Left
modded version of the Shoot Em Up Construction kit. Hope you will have
fun playing this game. A huge thank you once again to Roberto for his
latest creation. :)
New contributor's game - Across the Galaxy on Sector RCM1972 released.
Across the Galaxy to Sector RCM1972
You can now play both of Roberto's games online in the TND Games Room
It is time for another new game,
but not made by me at the moment (As I am still working on it). Roberto
Ricioppo has kindly contributed his first SEUCK game creation, called
Attack to Planet of Blix. It's a game in which you are on an alien
planet, fighting against the hostile creatures.
New contributor's game - Attack to Planet of Blix released
This way to Attack to Planet of Blix
I have unfortunately decided to
hold back Up in the Air for the
time being, to make way for the Psytronik Software game projects,
composing music for Mission Extreme C64, Pac It and also my 16KB
cartridge compo for RGCD.CO.UK.
Some news updates for you
The bad news
Up in the Air - Frozen!
Shoot 'Em Up Destruction Set 2
I have just finished two games for
the Shoot Em Up Destruction Set 2
called Bloodwheels and Super Tau Zeta. Both of those games
were written by Alf Yngve, using the Shoot
Em Up Construction Kit. Don't dispair, it may be SEUCK, but with
additional in game enhancements, high score tables, etc. The games feel
much more better. I am now working on 2000
Kung Fu Maniacs. Then will be Trojahn
and a mystery program for SEUDS 2,
which you will have to wait and see.
Sheepoid 2 - Woolly Jumper
Baaaah! Another funny game. Well,
it's not really going to be that Psychedelic as Sheepoid, or is it? Sheepoid 2 is actually going to be
something completely different and possibly quite original. The game is
cross between a constant horizontal scrolling shoot 'em up and a
platformer. I am doing programming and music for this game, which Shaun
Pearson is working on the graphics for the game. The game is going to
be an entry for the RGCD 16KB cartridge game competition - That's if I
can fit it into 16KB. Also a final version of the game (Featuring more
levels) may probably be mastered on disk+tape and uploaded on to the
TND web site, (or perhaps as a Psytronik Software release as well).
2 New tunes released (1 good
and 1 bad)
Some new tunes have been uploaded
on to the music section. One is the unreleased music I originally wrote
for 2000 Kung Fu Maniacs (Which sadly never suited the funny game) and
also a horrendous tune, which a year later gets unearthed from the dead
