COVER FEATURE: Clean Up Service
This time round we check out the fun and colourful Clean Up Service from Players Software, which was programmed by our guest for this issue, Karl Hörnell. We’ll have a retrospective look at the game and also delve into the code to see what we can dig up for you.
CODER’S CORNER: KARL HÖRNELL
Karl Hörnell is one of our all-time favourite Commodore 64 programmers, and we got the chance to chat with him about his time making games for Players and Interceptor Software. It’s exclusive and extended, so there’s a lot to share with you.
OUT OF THE ‘MOULDY CUPBOARD’
The Mouldy Cupboard is FULL of old and obscure C64 games, and this time round we pluck out Melonmania, which was programmed by Karl Hörnell for Interceptor Software. We’ll give you the lowdown on the game and if it’s worth keep out of the Mouldy Cupboard.
GAME ENDING FOCUS
It’s definitely a Karl Hörnell bonanza issue! We’re sharing the game ending to Clean Up Time, which he produced for Players Software back in 1986.
