Assemble IT Chapter 8 - More projects in C64Studio

3 Projects and source uploaded
Another 3 game projects with full source code, as well as final build are available for you to download and play around with. The three games are as follows:

Blastopia DX

This is an awesome fast paced horizontal scrolling shoot 'em up game I wrote back in 2018 at first as a tutorial game. The later game got released as a final full game for the RGCD 16KB cartridge competition. Shoot those aliens, rescue the camels and make a whole mess out of the alien planets.

Let's Invade 2

A game sequel to the original Let's Invade entered for the 2019 RGCD 16KB cartridge competition. Shoot those aliens and defeat wave after wave clearing them out of the screen. Invaders don't use a full path when there are gaps, which makes this game even challenging. There are 40 challenging stages to complete.

Planet Popper

A game tutorial production I wrote back in 2013 for issue 22 of Scene World diskmag. This is a simple Crazy Comets style shoot 'em up in which you have to shoot as many of the alien planets as you can, before your shield runs out. This game was originally made in Turbo Assembler, and aid of a few C64 utilities. It has now been ported to C64 Studio format.

... More open source projects coming next week.

Another entry for the Official C64 SEUCK Compo 2020

First of all compo rules update
The compo submission rules are based on the 2019 competition. However amendments have been made to the rules page based on use of Social Media, Enhancements, new services (In game music, hi-score detection) and of course those of you who have been using VICE snapshots experiencing problems saving to a disk image after using the snapshots. Some helpful tips based on saving your finished game in SEUCK - if the disk version doesn't save properly for you.

ENTRY #2 Synthia in the Cyber Crypt by Eleanor Burns

Eleanor Burns surprises TND with a world's first. A platform adventure, created using SEUCK. How on earth is this possible? With aid of VICE with an Action Replay cartridge (or VICE monitor), a programming mind, etc. You can produce what you like and open your imagination. This is also what the SEUCK Compo is all about. You are a Cyborg, HEC-80, whose mission is to break out of the cyber crypt. In order to do this, HEC-80 must solve puzzles. Clues are marked with a flashing ?. So explore the rooms, grab an object and see if you can solve the clue by pressing fire on the ? whilst holding that particular object.

Zap your way to Synthia

The Official C64 SEUCK Compo 2020 is here and we have a first entry!

Wow, is it really that time of year again? Yes it sure is. After the success of The Official C64 SEUCK Compo 2019. The New Dimension is very pleased to present you. The Official C64 SEUCK Compo 2020. This year's compo is more or less the same as last year's compo as there are no specific categories. The idea of the competition is to simply create a brand new game using Sensible Software's Shoot Em Up Construction Kit or Jon Wells' own Sideways SEUCK adaptation of the original. There is also a new feature added to the aim/rules, in relation to front end presentation this year. If you think you have what it takes to create a game that stands out from the crowd this year. Look no further than the link below.

Entry 1: GUILLOTINE - THE DOOM MACHINE by Richard Bayliss

Okay, so it isn't an official release from any other entrants but one of my own newly enhanced SEUCK games. After the success of Rocket 'N Roll last year. I couldn't resist to submit this Sideways SEUCK as the first entry for the competition. This is a fast paced horizontal scrolling shoot 'em up called "Guillotine - The Doom Machine". You control a space ship across 3 different zones in the planet of Jetan. Your mission is to seek out and destroy an evil doom machine, created by the evil alien Emperor... The Guillotine, which his empire is capturing humans from Earth in order to create a very dangerous weapon. Go on, you are a member of the Interstellar Justice Federation, go and wipe out those nasty aliens, locate and destroy the machine (by firing at the yellow gate) and destroy the alien planet.
