Dimension X is a game from Synapse Software, a futuristic tank-like game sort of like a cross between Encounter and Star Raiders.
Our contributor never saw any ads for a C64 version, however one magazine reviewed it and under the systems it was available for, they listed Atari and C64. The C64 version was confirmed by Wanderer when he got in touch with the game’s programmer Steve Hales…
Did you ever finish the C64 version of Synapse’s Dimension X? Ads were printed in early 80’s magazines but the game never saw the light of day. Any chance this game is around still?
No. It really never got complete. We did have parts of it working, but abandoned it early. The atari graphics hardware could do tricks the c64 graphics chips could not.
Is there any chance of recovering this code? There is a bit of a cult following of C64 users who like to see lost works in terms of old games.
Wish I could. Its long lost.
And so sadly as the search begins… it ends abruptly. The C64 version has been confirmed, but sadly the programmer has nothing of the game any longer and we know that there is not much to find.
We hope to be proven wrong and something turn up someday, but it is looking very very unlikely.
The search therefore is to be closed, and work to be focused on other GTW titles.
