MERRY CHRISTMAS EVERYONE, but first some sad news :(

DFlame/Blazon/Crypt/Alpha Flight passed away 23/12/2016.

It is very sad news to hear a fact, that Friday 23rd December 2016. One of my old C64 friends, who helped me out with a few TND productions, passed away after suffering from a heart attack. :( DFlame was known for C64 his programming and bitmap graphics. He helped me with a few of my programming difficulties, in the past. Also he did some nice and rather funny graphics for some demo parts, I wrote or was involved with. Also he made some nice loading screens for some of my games projects. In the next 1 or 2 weeks, I hope to be making a tribute demo with messages from other people from the scene. The demo will be uploaded on to both CSDB and TND web site. Rest in Peace.




... and now for some TND Christmas Presents:
1 Music Demo, A NEW Contributor's game and a SEUCK Redux Special

Mix Box #2 
Just in time for Christmas 2016. The New Dimension is very proud to bring to you Mix Box #2. The same old music selector from the past few months, but with five brand new tunes. Press keys 1 - 5 to select the tune you wish to play, and get the Christmas Party started.

Super Silverfish by Alf Yngve
The master of SEUCK, Alf Yngve kicks back with yet another stunning sideways scrolling shoot 'em up sequel, called SUPER SILVERFISH. This is a horizontal scrolling shoot 'em up, inspired by the classic game, Silkworm. Arm yourself a with helicopter and battle through five treacherous zones, defeating the terrorist's evil militia. Pick up power ups, because there sure will be some surprises in store for you. Call this game SEUCK no more :)

SEUCK School - Special Edition
A special edition of SEUCK School is finally here. This time, we help you get started with SEUCK Redux. For those who are unsure about what SEUCK Redux is. It is a completely new customisable framework for your own SEUCK games data files (Saved as All Data). SEUCK School gives you instructions on how to get your enemies to use AI, and gives you a simple guide on building your own power ups, status panel, and other useful bits. Make your SEUCK games even BETTER by making them NON SEUCK, and wow your friends. Maybe in the future you could do another Zap Fight 2 was an example that used SEUCK Redux :)



SEUCK School


Although all these are not really festive games, we hope you have a great time. Also have a very Merry Christmas, and see you in 2017.

SEN2ITIVE DELAYED

One of my C64 game projects, Sen2itive has been delayed, as I feel the game project will need to restarted from scratch. This cybernetic ball rolling over the tiles puzzle game was originally intended for a Christmas Day release, but unfortunately things did not really go according to plan. I did test graphics, and I did write music for the game, but the code I added to the first test screen, just hasn't been working right. A strange major bug also occurred. So, I will be starting from scratch, and maybe add some better code with background animation, etc.

VORTEX CRYSTALS NEWS

You may remember the 16KB cartridge version of Vortex Crystals, and you are still awaiting release for he final version of the game. Good news is that the game is 89% complete, but it is still not ready to be released. Nor will there be another preview of the game. The new front end is complete, the game, itself is practically finished with atmospheric in game sound effects and other bits. There's just the name entry/hi-score table to do, some final phase bug fixing and also I am awaiting Roland Hermans and Joachim Wijnhoven's music for the production. All is going really well with this game. VC will be released some time in 2017 for sure.

A New SEUCK Compo Entry released today

Bergbert III - The Blue Knight by Christian Siege
The SEUCK Compo is back with full effect, with yet another entry for the competition. This time Christian Siege delivers 3 weeks before Christmas time, Bergbert III - The Blue Knight. Constructed using the Sideways SEUCK. This is a fun little dodge 'em up, also featuring a brand new tune for the title screen (composed by me). You play the role of Bergbert, the blue knight, who must seek out a naught villain, who has caused environmental problems. Your first mission will be a rather smelly one, and involves sewage. Your second mission could get you frazzled, if you don't power down the plant. Finally your last mission could go with a bang if you're not careful enough. In order to work out the three clues you must play the game to find out :)



Bergbert 3 - The Blue Knight

SEUCK Compo Deadline for submissions is 31st January 2017.

1 new game from Roberto Ricioppo

Roberto Ricioppo has returned with just one more game before Christmas time. This time he gives space ships a break, and go extreme sports. Well, not completely extreme sports. The entry we are talking about is called Agent 101. A vertical scrolling skiing shoot 'em up. Control Agent 101 through each level, fighting against the enemy henchmen - who also shoot back. Score loads of points and also enjoy. :)



Agent 101

This will be the FINAL TND update, until Christmas time (Unless any more new SEUCK compo entries come along that is ;))
SEUCK Compo Deadline Extended!

Due to the increased working hours I have to do through until Christmas time/ I have decided to put the deadline for future submissions forward to 31st Janary 2017. This of course means you have 2 months added to the previous compo deadline, to get your entries ready in time for the compo. TND updates will continue, if anything comes along, but not as much as beforehand.

SEUCK COMPO 2016


SEUCK School Update
Just a quick update on the SEUCK School page. We show you how to program a PAL/NTSC detection subroutine on how to get the PAL version of SEUCK to display the scoring panel on NTSC machines of the Commodore 64. Also, a very quick tip on how to get music to play more acccurately on NTSC machines as well. Both are in the same category. Get your C64Studio out :)

The Invasion has Started - New C64 game from T.N.D

Let's Invade
After the promising release of a 1 level preview of Let's Invade back in August. The final and full version of the game has finally been unleashed. Let's Invade is a Space Invaders type of game, but with a slightly original and psychedelic twist of a scrolling void with thumping trancce music in the background. You have to fight invaders inside a psychedelic scrolling void. Aliens also have a different behaviour to make you go mad. The game also consists of assorted power ups and 40 levels of pure alien blasting fun.  This game also carries an important health warning, and contains strobe effects (Which can also be disabled). Have fun!



Let's Invade

Vortex Crystals - Quick news update

You may have remembered back in 2015 I launched a 16KB cartridge version of Vortex Crystals for the RGCD 16KB cartridge competition. There were some good moments creating the 16KB version, but there were still missing elements and things like that. Well good news is that T.N.D games is back in action to finish this game off. So far I have managed to implement subroutines to make harmless teleporting sprites, before aliens appear back in to the game. Also the second missing element was of course the in game sound effects. The new version of this game gives out spectacular sound effects. Also will feature a brand new front end, with hi-score table, and also some stunning atmospheric music by YogiBear/Protovision.

For the timebeing, you can try out the 16KB version of the game which is on the TND games page while you await a final version of Vortex Crystals some time in 2017. :)

Quick bit of TND news for you.
Let's kick off with:

GAME NEWS

This autumn will be seeing at least one brand new C64 game. Let's Invade, is nearly finished and is just under beta-testing with a couple of my usual testers. It is another 'Space Invaders; game. Although there will be some twists and turns to the game. The project has been turning out really well so far. There have been many blogs about this game on TND64.UNIKAT.SK. Some pleasing results :) A new blog will follow later on this week.

The final version of Vortex Crystals has been temporarily held back while I'm waiting for the updated sprite animation. However some more news about this game project reveals that YogiBear (Joachim) has stepped in to compose atmospheric tunes for this game. Since the original music I did was only exclusive for the RGCD 16KB cartridge compo 2016. :)

DEMO/MUSIC NEWS
As well as Let's Invade still being under testing, and awaiting final tape mastering, TND will also be producing and bringing out to you a music demo called 'Mix Box'. A music pot-pourri, with a selection of 5 unreleased tunes, to get you jiving through. Tunes vary from DMC GoatTracker and the CheeseCutter music editor. There'll be some nice oldschool features in the demo as well. :)

F-Clash 64 V1.1 by Canseco

Manic Monday - 2 full contributor's games

Hover Raider RX by Alf Yngve and TND Games

First off, comes a great new version of a very old SEUCK game by Alf Yngve, released on the Reset magazine Mix-I-Disk today.  'Hover Raider'. It is a fast paced vertical scrolling shoot 'em up. First released back in the early 1990's on the Binary Zone PD catalogue. Now turned into more of a budget commercial quality looking game (Although it isn't a commercial game). This game was actually a little experiment for me, as I wanted to try and implement my own sound effects into a 2 channel GoatTracker tune inside SEUCK Redux. Also I was very intrigued in generating a new score panel using chars rather than sprites. The result turned out great at the end. So here it finally is. Available to download from THE NEW DIMENSION.

In this game, you must guide your hovercraft around the landscape, doing battle against enemy forces, that are based on ground, sea and air. Some small, some big. Take great care moving your hover craft around each area. Some enemies will aim for your hovercraft, so you had better get out of the way, otherwise you could end up being fired at. One blast or a sudden bump with trees or other solid objects will waste one of your hovercrafts. Can you beat the battle, or will your mission fail?

The game consists of an easy and hard version. Easy version for practicing over a slow moving scroller, and hard mode for the ultimate challenge.



Hover Raider RX


Soldier Yeteran Defends for Earth by Roberto Ricioppo

Roberto Ricioppo strikes back with yet another funny little SEUCK creation called "The Soldier Veteran Defends for Earth". It is a vertical scrolling shoot 'em up in which you play a soldier veteran who has to battle against an army full of aliens. Since the aliens landed on to Earth and want to wipe out the humans, and take Earth as their home planet. You certainly will have a huge battle in your hands. Now grab that pulse laser rifle and shoot those aliens into oblivion. Good luck alien hunter.

Despite the ups and downs we have been having with this game in the past, and a leak of a previously unfinished version of the game into the cracking scene. Honey Bee is finally officially released for Psytronik. The game is available as a FREE digital download, directly from the TND games page. The game features a brand new presentation, a smart intro, a smart bonus stage, 16 levels of mayhem, a high score table, and much more. You just don't want to miss out on this game. Psytronik Software are also selling copies of this game on physical media, on disk or tape. Can you help Buzzy Bee impress Queen Bee by gathering loads of honey, and dropping it (at any height) into the bee hives in 16 different zones. Or will the great outdoors be too much for poor buzzy? No TND intros this time ;)



Special thanks goes to everybody who was involved with this game. Hope you all like the finished result :)

Buzz over to TND GAMES and enjoy Honey Bee


You also don't want to miss THIS:

X-Force - Final Version by The New Dimension is here!

To mark the 1st anniversary of X-Force (2015 Edition, as that was the month I believe that was the month that I sent the game to Psytronik). I am very pleased to announce a year later, a FREE digital download of this marvellous Hewson Subterranea, inspired horizontal scrolling shoot 'em up called X-Force (Cross Force). Where you have to control a ship across 8 before (and after) landscapes, inside the mines of the planet Darx. Destroy the aliens wave, after wave that come along. Then fight (or chicken out) from the end of level guardians. This game was officially my first decent shoot 'em up. Pick up the power ups in order to battle through. Watch out for the background, the laser gates and the grey alien mines. Now features in game sound effects, a crazy hack, and other extra goodies.  Enjoy. No TND intros this time ;)



Special thanks goes to everybody who was involved with this game. Hope you all like the finished result :)

Blast your way to play X-Force

Super Magnetic 2020 by Roberto Ricioppo

This game has been lying in my inbox for a few days now, and finally it gets released. Probably because I have been really busy recently, and had no time to master and upload this little game. Anyway, here it finally is. 'Super Magnetic 2020', written by Roberto Ricioppo. A game in which you guide 2 magnets across the alien corridor, having to avoid the walls. Shoot the aliens, and make sure you have a steady hand (and good composure). That is if you do have a good composure that is. Good luck, you'll need it.

SEUCK Compo 2016 - A New Entry

1917 by MiniMoog/Slavia

A forth SEUCK compo entry has now taken place, by the way of 1917. A little joke creation, which was inspired by the year 1917. This game isn't to be taken too seriously and has not been made to offend anyone. The whole world is ruled by imperial capitalists, exploiting workers and peasants. Oh! poor workers and peasants! You’re the power of the world, but rich men don’t appreciate you! There is one brave person who wants to change this misery – Vladimir Ilyich Lenin! Workers, peasants, comrades! Let the Revolution to begin, let the Red Power to win the dominion stolen by capitalists.

Improved version of Alien Formation Maker V1.0 released

Alien Formation Maker V1.0+

An improved version of the Alien Formation V1.0 has now been released. There were a couple of major bugs that were left in the previous release. So I have spent a little time and fixed the major issues. The directory option will now clear the screen before it displays the disk directory. The recorder and playback option didn't initialise the starting position of the memory, which caused sprite movements to be completely out of place when writing own programs using the generated X+Y position tables. I tested this version on a tutorial project I'm working on for issue 27 of Scene World Magazine, and the new version works out much better.

New tool: Alien Formation Maker V1.0 by The New Dimension

I'm very proud to bring to you a handy utility (built in 2 mornings) called 'Alien Formation Maker V1.0'. This program allows you to write your own 256 byte table for X position and Y position of sprites which uses XMSB (asl, ror $d010) method. With aid of a joystick and function keys, you can record your own sprite movements. There is also a playback option which plays the alien formation (using 8 sprites). All you need to do is program your game. :)

Honey Bee - Coming May 2016

Some big news for you, regarding Honey Bee. You may remember back in December 2014, Honey Bee got released into RGCD's 16KB cartridge competition?. Over the past couple of years or so. Wayne and I were looking forward to getting the final production made. The game got finished in early March 2016 and was finally submitted to Psytronik Software. Below are some  snapshots of what the overall production looks like. Before you look at them, let me tell you about the game in general. Unlike the original 16KB compo version, I created. You don't have to wait for VERY LONG de-compression this time round.

Honey Bee features a disk / tape loader with JSL's stunning loading picture. Only the tape version uses a honey bee-style loading stripes scheme (I thought yellow+orange would be ideal for this). The game also features a nice new animated front end, which cycles through each character, at first. Then flips straight on to the high score table. (Key F3 is a shortcut to take you straight to the high score table). There's also sound options: In game music, or buzzy bee cute sound effects, an intro sequence, and an end sequence. There is also a hidden Trainer of Wayne's, can you find it? He'd look silly if he went out and worn only one :D

Not only will Honey Bee be released on physical Disk + Tape by Psytronik Software. We will be hosting a free download of the game on the TND GAMES page. :)

WATCH THIS SPACE FOR NEWS ON THE GAME WHEN RELEASED!






The final version of this game will be uploaded on to the TND Games page in May 2016, as well as released on DISK + TAPE and free digital download by Psytronik Software. Hope you're looking forward to seeing the final production.

2 new games by TND for 16KB Dev Compo released

While Roberto Ricioppo has had is day of fame last night (heheheheh). It's our turn. This time, by revealing excellent news that the 16KB Cartridge Game Dev Compo, as received many entries, including many stunners. Which I just cannot wait to play. However, other great news is that TND has also participated in this year's  (Or should I have said, last year's) 16KB Game Cartridge Dev competition. Run by RGCD. The idea of the competition of course was to program a top notch Commodore 64 and develop a digital 16KB cartridge image for the entry and then submit it, in time for the 31st March 2016 deadline.  There are so many entries this year ... However, here are two TND entries, which are also AVAILABLE for you to download from the TND Games page. The games are only in 16KB Cartridge form (CRT) and should work fine on a 1541Ultimate 2.  Here's what corkers you have from TND:


Vortex Crystals (16KB version) by TND Games

How about THIS for a corker of a game? Vortex Crystals was my first submission for the dev game compo.  This is a co-op game production with the master of SEUCK, himself, Alf Yngve. It is a single screen platform game, where you play the role of a Special Forces Operative, who must save the world from a future alien invasion, simply by jumping around and picking up crystals from the VTEX complex, and destroy them. The only trouble is, the Vortex Complex is high security, and you are trapped inside each room. In order to get out. All crystals must be removed, and the infinite alien robots will try and destroy you. If all crystals have been removed. You must destroy an alien robot to retreive the pass card.

4 NEW RELEASES ... SOME GOOD NEWS, AND SOME BAD :)

Let's get the weekend started with the releases, before GOOD NEWS and some BAD NEWS ...

Sheepoid - Frozen In Time - Released

What originally was planned to be a TND Christmas 2015 release, was long delayed, for one reason or another. Sheepoid - Frozen in Time is finally a secret out of the blue and is NOW AVAILABLE for you to download from the TND GAMES page. This is not a playable preview, but an older build of the actual full game of the original Sheepoid. This game is full, due to the number of levels that were added to the game. The only things missing in this version of the game was the 'Smart Bomb' and the 'Hi Score Table' feature. Those two features appeared in the final version of Sheepoid. The reason for why I called this version 'Sheepoid - Frozen in Time', is because this version was found on the PC in an old projects file, and was indeed frozen in time 5 years ago.  This game contains similarities to the final release version, and also major differences to the release version as well. Hope you have fun shoot at the alien invaders with your sheep. :)


Sheepoid - Frozen in Time

Petaco5 by Errazking

Right in front of the C64 Contributor's front comes 'PETACO5', by Errazking. This is a neat compilation of C64 pinball machines, created by Errazking, using Electronic Arts' "Pinball Construction Kit". The game also features music mixed with the sound effects. Unlike many pinball games created with this kit. This release consists of very nicely done handcrafted PBCK games, guaranteed to knock your socks off. Load them up and enjoy the classic Pinball gaming moments. :)

Super Pizza 2 by Roberto Ricioppo

Robric brings us a SEUCK title called 'Super Pizza 2' in which you play a plate, which shoots pizza at other things! Weird, but fun :)

Dreider 6 by Roberto Ricioppo

Robric brings us alien blasing with a sideways SEUCK called Dreider 6



Dreider 6


...and now time for some GOOD NEWS

SEUCK Enhancements Framework and Tape Master Pro V3.0 is coming this Spring


Have you ever wanted to build new front ends for SEUCK games, display high score tables, power ups etc? Well this will be possible in mid-late Spring as I do intend to make a framework that can actually do this to SEUCK games for the NEXT INSTALLMENT of SEUCK School. It will be C64Studio/ACME cross assembler compatible, but it should be easy enough to make it Turbo Assembler compatible for 1541 ultimate users.

Other news. You might have noticed already, the loading screens for last year's Sideways SEUCK Compo 2015 prizes, and also PETACO5. They use a new TND loader system called Tape Master Pro V3.0. There is currently no PD utility made yet, but this will eventually happen. Imagine this... Mastering your own favourite games with a professional looking tape loader that can load koala paint pictures, play music and even run crunched BASIC programs - without having to remember the SYS jump address of your game (if not sure).  I have been working on the main loader system to make much tape mastering so much easier and more customizable for single filed programs.  Other features updated, include the colour washing bar, loader cycle table  (Will be optional in the menu), and also a 'PRESS SPACE' routine after loading has finished - To give you the chance to heaar loading tunes in full.

... and now for the bad news.

Honey Bee is not released YET



This may sound like bad news to you all. It isn't all that bad news, there's no death to this game... Don't worry!. I have had some emails which are concerned about a final release of Honey Bee. The people mainly were asking me "when will it be released?" ... Unfortunately I don't know when it will be released. The game will be released eventually, but at the moment there is a queue of other games that came before Honey Bee, for Psytronik Software. The game is still intended to be released to Psytronik Software, and is most definitely finished and mastered. Anyway don't panic. The game will eventually get released.... It is unknown when, although I do promise you - there will be a FREE digital download to this production as well.

For the timebeing, here's a few screen shots for you to enjoy:




Otherwise... Look out :)

Logic game from another contributor.

Bagels 1.0 by Matteo Angelini

Who remembers the KIM-1 machine? The famous Jim Butterfield wrote a logic guessing game for the classic KIM-1 computer, in which you have to guess a 4 lettered code. The computer then results in whether or not how many letters are in the correct place or how many correct letters are in the wrong place. You had a series of guesses. In the past, we saw PD games programmed in BASIC called 'Mastermind'. Now Matteo has ported the classic Bagels game to the C64, and features custoim made graphics, and a nice tune for you to enjoy. Have fun!

We also have a BIG surprise in store for you on the 1st February 2016, regarding more SEUCK tips. You will see when all gets revealed. There will also be a di-section of one of TND's previously enhanced SEUCK games. Which game will this be? It was a much loved title, I can guarantee that :)

10th January 2016 -TWO NEW  Contributor's GAMES from Matt Angelini
Crazy Letters and Pong 1.0 released

Two new Commodore 64 games have been launched on the contributor's page today. They are 'Crazy Letters', a reaction testing game - where you have to type in the letters that appear on screen and fly over to the right hand sign. There is also PONG 1.0, which is another PONG variant, with a series of options. These two games were the first ever games (and probably still are) that were programmed by following the 'Assemble IT' feature, as well as possibly a few other sources as well. Hope you will have fun with those two games.


CRAZY LETTERS


PONG 1.0
