    Default COMMODITIES - Obscure >=64 Games

    Episode - BLUE MOON

    We are on the hunt for Commodore 64 Games -- Games that have never been featured on YouTube until now! This episode we bring you - BLUE MOON. Blue Moon takes aspects of Astro Blaster, Moon Cresta and lunar lander and adds a sprinkle of GORF... and Galaxian to create a very good, obscure C64 shooter. One level features "bouncing" aliens that I am surprised were never integrated into any other commercially successful space shooter. It really is a great concept and makes this game unique among other space invader clones.

    All our videos are ripped from a real C64 using EZCAP. No emulation here!

    It has a Gorf feel to it.

    "Commodities" - what an awesome title!
    If you can't do it with 8 bits, you don't need to do it.

    Check out my original rock/blues/folk/country at www.zeyerband.com or myspace.com/zeyerband.

    I'm enjoying these. The C64 is still my all-time favourite gaming platform. Do keep these up, I'm always keen to discover gems hidden away in its massive library or to see obscure games that I do know covered.

    Ya, it's really really good! I could have so seen this as a full size arcade game in the day. I think it would have been huge! I've really enjoyed building my C64 cartridge collection - about 75 in it so far and some pretty rare ones. It's my fav thing to collect for right now.

    Cart is a format I never collected for but I am seriously considering it! I had only a handful back in the day (but a load for the Vic 20). Did you find it at a swap or online?
