#10 – 8th December 2023

Digital Eclipse have turned their attention to Yak and Giles for their next Gold Master Release and I couldn’t possibly be more excited for a videogame release. Llamasoft: The Jeff Minter Story is out next year and will have 42 games in it. Best news ever. (Time Extension)

Still in ‘best news ever’ territory here, Minion has popped out a remake of a fave of mine, New Rally X. It’s such a good game and Min’s remake does it justice and then some. Pico-8 so you can play it on the web if you fancy. (Itch)

More Pico-8 with Neon. Gosh, this is an absolutely beautiful looking, videogamey, videogame. (Itch)

Dolan’s Caddilac is a match 3 game where you have to bury someone alive. I honestly never anticipated writing that this week … or any week, come to think of it. A reader submission so thanks for the tip off. (Itch)

A sim of the old Game And Watch classic, Manhole. (Itch)

Chromanoids is a GB port of a fab recent Spectrum game where the lead character is, wait for this, a slime called Oozy Osbourne. Oh yes. (Itch)

Photon Ball And The Industrial Area may sound like directions you give to a taxi driver when you’re trying to find one of those big kid’s play warehouse things just outside town but it is, in fact, a beautiful looking new arcade game instead. (Itch)

More Gameboy stuff. A GB Colour remake of the proto-pixeljunk-eden Bugaboo The Flea. I loved Bugaboo as a kid, especially once I realised you could finish it incredibly quickly with the correct moves. Ooh, get me, 1984 speedrunner. (Itch)

Time for this week’s Bitsy game and it’s another poem – We, The Guardians Three. (Itch)

You lot are keeping me busy this week. It’s Uridium X, a remake of Uridium now with an X so everything is right with the world. (Itch)

Whilst we’re all impatiently waiting on Digital Eclipse, spend some time with a remake of Gridrunner that throws in some Matrix too for good measure. I am always up for Gridrunner remakes, always. (Itch)

I always wanted to like Profanation but the damn thing was cursed to only load one in five hundred times for me. I could go back and play it through emulation now but I’m still upset about things. Anyway, a remake, including an Android build! (Itch)

Atic Atac remade for the ZX Spectrum Next so it has all the colours now. (Itch)

Goblin Assault, a practice frowned upon in the fantasy world and also a remake of Orc Attack. Bop some clambering pests on the noggin to make a number go up. (Itch)

Gave it a passing mention back in issue #4, happy to say that Blast Arena is now up and playable. It’s an absolutely *beautiful* arena shooter for the Master System. (Itch)

This week’s digest comes with super thanks to all our Patreon supporters but especially the overly kind BigNobody and Mithaldu. Thanks so much, folk.
