SEUCK Compo Entry #4

RoboformX2 by Pinov Vox

Just in today comes this brand new SEUCK game, written by Pinov Vox. This time it is a sequel to the original RoboFormX game. Your robot comes to the rescue once again in order to destroy a deadly virus inside the mainframe. Your mission is to shut down all of the mainframe systems (The pulsating circles) and fight against the rogue robots and droids. At the end of each level you will encounter a boss enemy. Shoot it many times to destroy it (or just wait). This game has some nice graphics, and some 90's style techno music I made in DMC to suit the game's theme. Enjoy :)

Scene World late news

Scene World issue 30 released - a couple of months late

Issue 30 of Scene World was released back in January 2021 and I had forgotten to upload it on to the TND web site. Then a few weeks later, disaster struck. Now finally here is issue 30 of Scene World disk mag, now available on TND. Like each issue of the disk mag. There are some fun features, exclusive interviews and also two special articles based on theC64 full size computer, the unboxing of the machine, and also programming on it. There are another two exclusive interviews, and a lot of games news to catch up with. Finally there is a bonus extra of Storm Chase game source and data, and also World Music. Sorry for the delay getting this one released :)

A new SEUCK Compo entry:
Ray Fish by TND Games

Here is my first game release for 2021. Ray Fish is a vertical scrolling shoot 'em up with colourful graphics and powerful late 1980s style tunes (Which I made with Future Composer V4.1) . Your world has been turned upside-down by aliens. A beacon has been installed and has caused your planet, Atlantor to go berzerk. Your mission is to save Atlantor from being infested by aliens. Guide your Ray Fish through four different levels. Fight the aliens, rogue security systems and  locate the beacon and try to destroy it. Collect orbs for bonus points. Now then I thought there was something fishy going on.

A new SEUCK Compo entry:
Bee Insect Attacking by Roberto Ricioppo?

It is time to get buzzing with a cute little sideways SEUCK adventure with Bee Insect Attacking by Roberto Ricioppo. You control a bee, which is under attack by various creatures and enemies. Your task is to protect your own territory from the deadly insects and other enemies. Shoot your stinger at the baddies, but don't let them hit your bee, otherwise it won't be your bee that is attacking. Have fun. :)

Bad News - but is it really all bad news?
Cruiser-X 79 news - What's happened?

I had a disaster last Tuesday. The hard disk drive on my old development system grinded to a major halt. I had to re-install Win 10 on to my old system once again. I attempted a backup process through the cloud drives. I re-installed Win 10 on to the HDD, which unfortunately completely wiped out the HDD. I used recovery software in attempt to find the missing project files. Nothing was recoverable. I went to the backup clouds ro restore the files I I thought backed up. The files were deleted from the cloud drives. I lost everything. Including all of my game sources. My PC was well and truly borked up.

Now I am working on a new dev system, which I tried to restore the game projects from the cloud drives. Still I had no luck. All the code and data must have been deleted by the cloud systems or my HDD was completely screwed up at the time during the backup process. This means that for future C64 projects, including Cruiser-X 79, I am going to have to start from scratch (Unless of course I find the project backed up on a CD-ROM from last year or something like that). For future C64 development, I will be using GitHub as a backup process for my source code and data - so this problem doesn't happen again. The ongoing projects will be hidden from public eyes, but the complete project source code will be available publicly  :)

I would like to say sorry to Saul Cross and to you all, also  thank you for your patience. This game will happen, and hopefully at a faster process than before hand.

Official C64 SEUCK Compo 2021 gets a first entry and also SEUCK School Updates
Their Machine by Raul Gubert

The very first entry to this year's official C64 SEUCK Compo starts with Their Machine by Raul Gubert. It is a push scrolling Sci-Fi shoot 'em up adventure. You play an agent who has to fight the machine before it takes over the world. You will need to take a few precautions while on your mission. Not everything appears to be what it seems. It's a horrible world out there.

SEUCK School Updates

A few SEUCK school tutorial updates have popped by. Today's updates were mainly discovered by Eleanor Burns. There is a trick on how to change the sprite characters in the game status panel. Also there is a brand new and clever trick which allows the player to use more than 2 frames of animation, when moving multi-directional. The trick will only work on single player games. Finally, there are some Action Replay backup tips for those who cannot code, but want to make their game disks single-filed using the cartridge freezer.

Okay pupils, it is time for SEUCK School
