FREEZE64 – Issue 25 – Herobotix
RELEASED: February/March 2019
CURRENT STOCK: Coming soon.
Here’s what’s in FREEZE64 issue 25:
COVER FEATURE: HEROBOTIX by Hewson/Rack-It
You know the drill by now; we take our cover feature game and scour through the code to see what we can find and manipulate for you. This time round it’s the cracking space arcade adventure called Herobotix.
OUT OF THE ‘MOULDY CUPBOARD’
Yet another rare and quirky Commodore 64 title from the Mouldy Cupboard, which this time round is Moby Dick created by Cymbal Software, and published in 1982/83 by PSS (Personal Software Service).
SPOILER ALERT! HEROBOTIX
Earlier in this issue we hacked our way through Herobotix, and later on we discuss the making of the game with its creator Steve Collins; and so we thought it would also be poignant to provide a Spoiler Alert in the form of the game ending to Herobotix.
BITS ‘N BYTES
We’ve got some updated news on Mancave by Megastye, and also an exclusive remix album download from Chris Abbot at C64audion.com.
JULIAN RIGNALL’S ZZAPBACK!
Julian Rignall is back with his regular retrospective look at sizzlers and gold medal winning games reviewed in ZZAP!64. This time round it’s Issue 6.
SECRET SQUIRREL INVESTIGATES
Our intrepid agent reveals hidden messages within two recent C64 releases, Sizzler and L’Abbaye des morts.
CODER’S CORNER: STEVE COLLINS
In this extended coder interview, we chat to the fab Steve Collins who has a great story to share about his time programming Herobotix and Badlands for the C64.
TOILETS IN GAMES!
Toilet humour has always been a very British thing, and this is certainly evident in the early history of computer games when bedroom programmers would have a devilish moment and inject a bit of toilet humour by literally adding in a toilet. And so we thought it would be fun to wade through the thousands of C64 games to see where we can spot a toilet. A ‘crap’ idea? You bet it is…
THE MAKING OF… RUPERT AND TOYMAKER’S PARTY
Here’s something a little different for you… With the mention of the name Martin Walker, you’d expect us to be interviewing him about one of the Commodore 64’s greatest shoot-em-ups, Hunter’s Moon. But here at FREEZE64 we like to cover games that are a little different so that maybe there is a chance we can all learn something new… Commodore 64 programmer Martin Walker chats about the making of Rupert and The Toy Maker’s Party for Quicksilva.
NEW & EXCLUSIVE POKES ‘N CODES
We love hacking games for you, and this time round we have exclusive POKES ‘N CODES for Digiloi, Aviator Arcade 2, Bastopia and Spider-Maze.
MY C64 HEAVEN WITH STEVEN LYON
FREEZE64 subscriber and down-right great guy Steven Lyons shares his love for the C64.
All that and more, wrapped up in a professionally printed, full colour, A5 Commodore 64 fanzine!
