Neues SEGA SG-1000 Spiel: Astrododge

Bereits am ersten Dezember diesen Jahres haben Revival Studios Ihr brandneues Spiel Astrododge für den Sega SG-1000 veröffentlicht und brechen somit die fast 30-jährige kommerzielle Stille auf diesem System.

Wie es der Name vermuten lässt, handelt es sich um ein „Ich weiche einem Objekt Spiel aus“. Da wir jedoch durch und durch mit englischen Wörtern durchzogen sind, könnte man es auch ein Dodge-Spiel nennen. Wirklich spektakulär ist an Astrododge nichts. Asteroiden können alleine oder in trauter Zweisamkeit gemieden werden, dazu gibt es hier und dort noch ein Power-Up.

Kostenpunkt sind 49,00 EUR exklusive Versandkosten!

Revival Updates: new games, new competition, new updates

The guys from Revival are busy again and deliver a lot of cool stuff to you, so listen what they have to say:

ZX81 – two new game releases for the Sinclair ZX-81: It took a little while to get everything ready for release, but I can finally announce the release of two new games for the Sinclair ZX81: Avalanche and Mayhem. The games are available on cassette tape and as digital download. For more information about the games, visit the ZX-81 section of the revival studios website.

2012 Game Catalogue: A profesionally printed 2012 game catalogue is now freely available with every order. It contains an overview of the games for vectrex, videopac/o2 , colecovision / msx / sega sg-1000 and zx81 , as well as a few upcoming projects.

Videopac/O2 – Revival Studios 2012 rewards competition: Looking for a challenge? Missed out on the Collectors Edition of Mage? Would you like a free game? Then join the Revival Studios 2012 Rewards Competition with more than 120 euros worth of prizes! The Rules: Each of my videopac games has a number of rewards (or achievements/trophies if you will) that can be unlocked by performing certain tasks in the game. Once you met the criteria for a specific reward, you can upload you highscore code (even if you didn’t get a highscore) these rewards will synchronise when using the same nickname. The person with the most unlocked rewards on january 1st, 2013 will be the winner.

Scoring: Rewards can be found in the following six games: AstroDodge (2011), Mayhem (2011), Colorclash (2012), Mage: The Enchanted Crystals (2012) and the soon to be released Cavity (Q3-2012) and Stairrunner (Q4-2012). These games consist of bronze, silver and gold rewards. You can view all the rewards and their descriptions for each videopac/o2 game here.

The following points are given to each reward:

– bronze: 1 point
– silver: 2 points
– gold: 6 points

On average, each game will contain 1 or 2 bronze, 1 silver and 1 gold reward. This means that even if you don’t own all games, you could still win if you get a few of the more difficult 6-point gold rewards (like for example getting 1000 points in big-ship mode).

In an event of a tie, the fastest time/highest score in Mage will be decisive.

There are 2 prizes to be given away:

First Prize: A Collectors Edition of Mage: The Enchanted Crystals
Runner-up: A free copy of my Q1-2013 game

Closing date:
January 1st, 2013

A tip to get you started: To unlock the easter eggs in Astrododge and Mayhem: You have to hold a specific key during the splashscreen until the titlescreen pops up.

GOOD LUCK!

Videopac/O2 – Mayhem reviews universally positive! Highly addictive game for the family! With reviews for mayhem coming in from time to time, i would like to share a few quotes from a review for a french retro-magazine, where mayhem got a 90% score:

„The gameplay is perfect with and the animation is fluid.“

„In a time where young kids have their Wii and Mario Kart 3DS, there has been a period where they been only be playing Mayhem at home! My Boy and girl even fight for it! The joy of entering your name on the internet only adds to this excitement!“

Sega SG-1000 / MSX / Colecovision update: Now that the ZX81 games are finished, it is time for me to put in the final stretch and finish my games for the Sega SG-1000, MSX and Colecovision. Productionwise it is nearing completition and the final hardware and materials to make it all happen is on its way as we speak. It looks like the SG-1000 and MSX version will be out first, with Colecovision following later this year.

Vectrex update: Remember last time I talked about the pcb shortage? Well…. Still the case. However I made some arrangement with the supplier to give me a final deadline (and possible a new batch of pcbs) next week. I will have more news for you next update. In the meanwhile, there have been a few game concepts I’ve been trying out, so once I will have green light on the pcbs I will inform you about them! In the meanwhile, if you are still looking to purchase one of my existing game, now is the time!“
