Blockie: C64 game finished and released

Richard Bayliss has been working hard the past few months to finish off an abandoned Columns clone which was infamously released into PD and onto Commodore Format’s covertape in an incomplete form around 30 years ago.


This has now been fully completed and you can download a playable version of the game, with proper scoring and with the ability for the game to end.

GTW64 finds and more

Thanks to the brilliant preservation work of Paladin of Genesis Project, and kindly passing his work over – we are proud to present a large list of educational game recoveries and preservations.

Some titles are listed within our GTW64 archives as missing, and others were not on anyone’s radar. Here is the complete list:

  • Alphabet Zoo (Floppy Disk Version)(Spinnaker) – Paladin found the floppy disk version which includes 2 other games not available on any other versions found online, including the version on GB64 (because those versions are cartridge dumps).
  • Dragon Games (Daybreak)
  • Math Baseball (Daybreak)
  • Keyboard Crazy (Waveform Corporation) – This one seems to require the Colortone keyboard or a keyboard overlay
  • Mastertype Training Grounds – The version on GB64 isn’t cracked and is a g64 so Genesis Project have cracked this one for the site.
  • Puzzle Mania (Readers Digest)
  • The Factory (Sunburst) – Differs from the HESWARE version on GB64 and has been listed on our wanted list.

The full archive can be downloaded below, and we will quickly update the relevant entries to point to this post. A huge thank you to Paladin of Genesis Project for recovering these titles and allowing them to be crossed off the preservation list.

The Legend of Billy Boulder

1990 U.S. Gold

Platform: C64, Atari 400/800, Commodore Amiga, Atari ST and PC

Our next entry into the archives was thought to have been both a C64 and Atari 800/400 development for Databyte back in the 1980s. Billy Boulder was flagged up to us by developer Ron Rosen in late 2022, a game that was in fact seemingly due for release on Amiga, ST and PC – but in a bizarre twist, it was indeed also an 8-bit title too after all.

The game was known in full as The Legend of Billy Boulder, and had artwork created by Art Huff, who worked on a number of Atari 8-bit and C64 titles during the 1980s. Previously, Art had worked on a game called Adam Caveman, which was also never released. Continue reading
