With the release of Power Pack 63, we’re now starting work on one final, big tape – Power Pack 64. This really is the last one we’re going to do. 64’s as appropriate a number as there’ll be to round things off! And just like before, we want to fill it with your software. Have you written a game? Want it to be seen by Commodore Format and C64 fans the world over? Our previous Power Packs were discussed way beyond the C64 community: on Reddit, Flipboard, Spectrum, Amiga and the Retro Gamer forums. Make your game famous!
Even if your game isn’t finished yet, why not submit a demo? We’d love the opportunity to showcase your next release. The same goes if you’ve written a utility or, indeed, anything that will work on a Commodore 64!
As before, the CF Power Pack 64 will be a free download that will run on a Commodore 64 emulator.
HERE’S HOW TO INCREASE YOUR CHANCES OF BEING INCLUDED
First up – we’ve had loads of Shoot ‘Em Up Construction Kit contributions for the first two tapes. We aren’t accepting new ones this time around. There will be no SEUCK stuff on Power Pack 64, not even if you send us angry emails with capital letters in them.
Just like the old covertapes back in the day, we are interested in getting as much variety onto the new Power Pack as possible. Platform and puzzle games are particularly welcome. We are looking for one of each! Indeed anything that doesn’t have a spaceship is going to stand out – we all love a shoot ’em up, but we already have loads of really high quality ones from last time.
