C64

Format specific babbling. From Speccy to anything that's not the Speccy but they're probably not as good but we'll live, I guess.

Have only played with one of these through emulation but if any game made me want one it was Salamander. Just compare it to the Speccy version and weep!!!



Speccy version for comparions.

Games I played to death:

Turrican (and Turrican 2 of course)



Pitstop II



Dambusters (not much to look at but so much game in there)



Boulderdash, but everyone knows that one.

Obviously not a lot of C64 fans around but as I have recently finished the book - 'Commodore: A Company on the Edge' I have had a more of an interest recently and have seen some really good arcade conversions:

Commando Arcade


Older version for comparison


Scramble

Commando was good, I remember it being squared off against Rambo at the time in various magazines. I spent a lot of time playing Rambo.



Beach Head is good



And in the International Karate vs Way of the Exploding Fist dojo battle, I had IK.

Commando was one of the games I played on the C64 with my mate Paul. It was a great conversion and a lot of fun to play.

Hehe. Good to hear. Me and my mate Craig played Commando to death but we turned the sound down and always played it along to AC-DC's Fly On The Wall album. Awesome. Whenever I hear 'Shake Your Foundations' it reminds me of Commando!!

Then you should definetively try the new version, it has the missing stages, updated graphics and you can throw that grenades when keeping the button pressed (instead of using space)

Beachhead - forgot about this one. Loved it on the Speccy but look enviously at the C64 version. Alos the sequel was good fun (and very politically correct for the day and age - NOT!):

Raid Over Moscow
