GTW64 Christmas update 2014

Welcome to our yearly Christmas update, which seems to have come round far too quick. Due to how the site gets more regularly updated, this year we had no backlog for the first time in years!

This meant new content was hard to come by. We have some brand new findings for you as usual, but the rest has been a trawl through the excellent Gamebase 64 to create a ton of new entries. Enjoy the updates, now i’m off to enjoy the festive booze!…

Boxing Manger 2 recovered and released!

Thanks to John Christian Lønningdal, we are very happy to see Boxing Manager 2 fully preserved at long last. Reviewed in Commodore Format, it was uncertain whether the game had been released, and now this confirms it indeed was, but in limited numbers

Boxing Manager 2

6 unseen previews by Cory Kin added

We have been sifting through more development disks from Cory Kin, and have uncovered some more very cool early previews. Highlights include Ah-Type and Vertical Shooter. Check them out!

Ah Type, Badminton game, Unknown shooter, Unknown platformer game, Uridium clone, Vertical shooter

Unknown vertical scroller game found

A bizarre and early vertically scrolling game, based in some urban area has been added. It’s very early, but one for us to do some digging on…

Vertical scroller

Unknown beat-em up sprites found (Carlo)

Is it the start of a sideway scrolling beat-em-up like Renegade? We found a sprite set called “Carlo”, and it seems to be something new. Do you know what it is?
