Our 2000th GTW64 entry added!

Many thanks to you all for your support and contributions over the years.  Thanks to you, we have reached a milestone today with our 2000th GTW64 entry into the archive.  To celebrate we are proud to present the full game – Yogi Bear – The Big Clean Up by Hi-Tec Software.

This has been carefully reconstructed from source, with a lot of code developed from scratch to be able to bring you a complete and playable game, thanks to Martin Pugh.  The special development also features new loading screen and end screen artwork by Steven Day, and a specially composed ending tune by Joachim Wijnhoven.  Full story and download can be found below:

Early version of Alloyrun recovered

From Ashley Routledge’s work disks, we have recovered an early version of Alloyrun, when it was originally named Antaeus and was intended for Firebird.

A fixed up version of Alloyrun has also been added to the entry:

Antaeus + Alloyrun

Tronscii preview + sources added

Thanks to Damian Caynes, we are pleased to add a new preview called Tronscii, which is a cool ASCII themed Tron clone for two players.

Incomplete, Damian is hopeful that someone may wish to pick up the project, and the full source code has been kindly included.  Read more below.

Various early Ash and Dave variants added

As a bonus, we have added three additional early editions of released Ash and Dave games, with mostly just title/logo differences.  Some interesting curiosities to check out:

FX (Full game), Kinetix (Full game), Poseidon – Planet Eleven (Early preview)

Alternative Software games – postponed!

In case you didn’t see the preview news post, we were hoping to bring you two exclusive and complete unreleased Alternative Software games to download and play, as an extra bonus.

Unfortunately, there are some remaining issues that need ironing out before we can make them available.  We will continue to discuss releasing them onto the site, and will hopefully see them made available in 2017.

Also – 11 new entries added

As well as the above, we have added the following new entries, which led up to the 2000th entry.

Bigfoot V1, Bubbles, Buggy Ranger, Championship Golf at Pebbles Beach, Diskovery titles, Katia, Little People Software games, Number Jotto, Space Wars, Tunes n Trivia, The Brainies

And finally – 35 updates added

And we also carried out 35 entry updates.  Check each entry for full details of the update made.   Most will be minor, with new scans added in places.

Apprentice, Bible Baseball, Bounch!, Brides Of Dracula, C64GS cartridge titles, Caveman Ninja, Champions, Dandy The Comic, Davka Software, Dungeons, Alchemists And Everything, Edward Randy, Forbidden Planet, Gauntlet 3, Giana 2 – Arthur And Martha In Future World, Jimmy’s Grandprix, Jupple Dust, Maelstrom, Orbyte Software titles, Orel Hershiser’s Strike Zone, Play and Learn series, Player Manager, Salvage 1 and 2, Scooby Doo V1, Silver Surfer, Sleepwalker, Sonic The Hedgehog, Sturmtruppen, Sungem Educational Adventures, Suzuka GP, The Last Stuntman, Tour De Force, Transmuter, Trazers, Wizards Dominion, Wizerior 2
