SEUCK COMPO 2018: Entry #3 - Valkyrie 3 - The Night Witch by Eleanor Burns

    

It is now time for the third and final episode (I think) of the Valkyrie series. This time it is airborne. Your mission target is set on screen. In order to succeed you must shoot all of the correct target objects, and do battle against a whole lot of mean ground and air based enemies. If you complete all 3 missions through 6 different levels. You will be rewarded a 4 lettered passcode for the game ending (Which must be loaded separately). This game also features some cool power ups - that is if you collect the weaponry object. :) Pip, pip and tally ho :)

Here is the second entry for the SEUCK Compo 2018. Still in the theme of Science Fiction, playOrbit brings to the competition his first ever SEUCK creation called Atom Heart. You control Atom-X, which has to battle against the Extanoids. Destroy pollutants, and pick up colony relics/aid. Don't hit the pollutants otherwise they will destroy your Atom-X. You must find the main control centre and shut their system down (More or less destroy it).

SEUCK COMPO: Entry #1 - The Last Hugger by TND Games

    

The New Dimension is proud to present, the very first entry for the SEUCK Compo 2018 (Although this is more of an outside compo entry, rather than an actual compo entry, being that I have made this game). You play an alien species, under threat against intruding mercenaries, and their state of the art tech. You must spit deadly slime at the enemies, in order to keep yourself safe. Also you can lay light green eggs for bonus points - destroy the dark green ones, unless you want to become closer to extinction that is :)

NEW GAME RELEASE: Quad Core C64 by T.N.D Games

    

Are you ready for some penultimate brain storming puzzling mayhem? The New Dimension is very proud to bring to you Quad Core C64. This is a public domain puzzle game I have produced for fun, in CBMPRGStudio (Where the source and binary data can be found on the CBMPRGStudio web site, as soon as it is available). This game was inspired by D-Lite, Reaxion and Mind Maze, but with a major twist. You are connected to a console which gives you a series of puzzles. Your task is to eliminate all of the lights that are displayed on the screen. Warning: Each light gets cross-inverted to another colour. Which means you are guaranteed to get really puzzled - especially considering that there are 3 colour combinations (Red, Purple, Cyan).  To make things even more challenging. You are also against the clock. Run out of time, and you have a limited number of tries remaining. There are 32 different puzzles for you to solve. The early puzzles are pretty much straight forward, but later levels will get frustrating. Can you crack all 32 levels without cheating?. This production also comes with a built in level editor, in which you can design and create your very own levels to challenge your friends. You can even save the game levels you created on to a disk or tape.

NEW GAME RELEASE: Star Toast by T.N.D Games

   

Time for a new release, while you're waiting for the last part of the debugging  phase of Quad Core. While I have been working on some articles for issue 28 of Scene World. I also made a  tutorial game (Which the binary data and source will feature in the disk mag itself, as soon as it is released on to the Scene World section on TND web site). The mag has been delayed once again, but I decided to delay the game no further, and had Joerg's blessing to upload this little release. This is a simple vertical scrolling shoot 'em up (NOT a SEUCK game). You control a cyan space ship, which has to do battle against hoards of attacking aliens and try to score as many points as possible. You have a limited number of ships at your disposal. If you lose all of your lives, you will become Star Toast.

There are some more releases to come in March 2018. - Watch this space:)

KEEPING YOU UPDATED:

Quad Core 64 - Coming Soon!

   

The New Dimension is very pleased to announce that for the very first TND game in 2018. I decided to not make something with SEUCK this time round. Instead, over the past few weeks I have been working on a brand new puzzle game for the Commodore 64, in Arthur Jordison's CBM PRG Studio V3.12.0. Quad Core is NOT yet released, due to some bug fixing and improvements being made. However this is probably one game which will give your brain a good workout or get you even puzzled. Quad Core is a game, inspired by 2 public domain games Mind Maze and Delight. The idea is to eliminate all of the lights from the game board, by selecting the core central area of the cross. However, as you progress further into the game. It will become even more puzzling. As there will be a selection of different colours to play with. This game also has its own built in editor, in which you can design your own stages, store them to disk and tape and challenge your friends. As soon as the game is ready to be released. It will be downloadable from this web page, and also Arthur Jordison's CBM PRG Studio web site. More news to follow when the game is released.

Cruiser X-79

   

Also in the pipeline is Cruiser X-79. A vertical scrolling space shoot 'em up, in co-op with Saul Cross (Graphics). This game was inspired by Denarius by Firebird. It is a fast paced shoot 'em up in which you have to battle through 16 different alien stations, destroying as many aliens as you can. The player ship can pick up power ups to boost fire power, gain protection for a short period of time, or even destroy a current elite of aliens. This game may look quite stunning - but it is NO WHERE near to completion yet. The main game code is practically complete. It is just awaiting the additional level graphics, Due to the size of the files/levels. This game will become my first ever multi-load game for the C64. Whether or not the game will be .tap form as well as .d64. We'll have to wait and see. The final game intends be released on to the TND games page when finished.

MIX BOX #6

A 6th edition of Mix Box is intended some time later on in the Winter/Spring time. Hopefully by the end of March 2018. You'll have yet another 5 awesome tunes to sit back and look forward to. The 6th Mix Box will be using the same outfit as Mix Box 5.

28th January 2018

It has been a while since the last contributor's entry was uploaded on to TND. I did have another contributor's game from Alf Yngve, but I have saved it for the next issue of Reset's Mix-I-Disk as it is a real corker of a release. This web site has been very quiet as well. Don't dispair, it doesn't mean TND is doing nothing or that we are dead!. :) There are more new releases in store for you in 2018. A brand new Commodore 64 release, which hopes to come some time in February 2018. Anyway on with today's release:

Contributor's Release: Von Helzing by Christian Siege


Christian submitted me this game, which was made with SEUCK in just a record-breaking hour. It is a score attack Sideways SEUCK game called Von Helzing. You play Von Helzing, a Vampire hunter. Who has to destroy a set number of vampires in each wave. A number on the left of the screen indicates how  many vampires to kill, in order to move on to the next challenge. There's no graphical detail, but this game idea is quite fun.
