Throughout the year we make an effort to play every single Commodore 64 release for the current year, and come November we look back at the collection of delights and select a game worthy of our FREEZE64 Game of the Year award.
The following games have won our illustrious FREEZE64 Game of the Year award:
– 2019 –
by Simon Jameson
Doc Cosmos is a time-shifting space exploration platformer, which will keep you occupied on your Commodore 64 for hours on end. The map is vast (for a 16KB game) the puzzle and exploration element is crafted to perfection, and the time-shifting element of the game is genius! A worthy winner.
