Commodore 64 To Get 30-In-1 TV Game

simoniker posted more than 10 years ago | from the commie-plus-plus dept.

Classic Games (Games) 73

Lee writes "According to Peek N' Poke, there's an official Commodore 64 30-in-1 'TV game' in development, according to current C64 rights-holders Tulip Computers, who has a Dutch-language news story about it on their site." The Tulip story mentions titles including "Classic Games series from Epyx, inclusief Summer Games, Winter Games, World Games en the seminal California Games", and it's notable that Tulip's partner and exclusive C64 licensor is Ironstone Partners, who also list as a "sister company" DC Studios, software developers of the Atari 10-in-1 TV game.

I mostly took mine to friend's homes and to the occasional user group [icomm.ca] meeting. I do have a more portable Commodore 64, in a sense, in that I run Frodo for Palm [sourceforge.net] on my handheld. As for why? Nostalgic gaming mostly.

This is something that the average joe can buy at Wal-Mart, and just plug it in and play. No worrying about which emulator works the best (and many emulators are crippleware, unless you shell out $20), trying to find and download roms (and the associated legal/ethical dilemmas), etc. Plus, if I had something like this, I could just hand it to my kids and not have to worry about them messing up my computer. Or have the kids tying up my computer while daddy wants to play "big kid" videogames.

I would also like to point out these:
Activision Game [thinkgeek.com]
Atari Game [thinkgeek.com]
Namco Game [thinkgeek.com]

These are actually presents that any geek would love! And the Commodore 64 game would be just continuation of this same theme...

C64 connection to TV (1)

CodeMonkey4Hire (773870) | more than 10 years ago | (#8998074)

Does anyone know where I can get the connections between C64 and a TV? I believe that it is the same connection that my Radio Shack Pong system uses. I would like to be able to use both of these. (Don't you think that a pong tournament would augment an 80s party?) Do these special games/controllers allow for 2 players, like some of the upcoming Atari games will?

Re:C64 connection to TV (0)

Anonymous Coward | more than 10 years ago | (#8998969)

The C64 RF cable is identical to the SNES RF cable, or at least close enough to work for both. At least in the PAL regions. Might be worth a shot, nonetheless.

Re:C64 connection to TV (2, Informative)

Anonymous Coward | more than 10 years ago | (#9000161)

Not in the US. The C64 and Atari 2600 used manually switched RF cables and lacked the extra voltage or whatever that made the NES and SNES RF switch boxes automatic.

Last I checked, (3 or 4 years ago) Radio Shack was selling the manual switchboxes that would work with the C64. An RCA to Cable TV style coax adapter will do it too, if you don't mind unscrewing it every time you want to switch between the C64 and your cable TV/antenna connection.

But why use the RF outs? Unless you have an old TV or you like static, the C64s A/V outputs are much nicer. Most even have separate (a.k.a. "S-Video") outputs, but you'll need to whip up a custom cable to use that.

Re:C64 connection to TV (1)

mr_mischief (456295) | more than 10 years ago | (#9000918)

Or buy my C64 complete with Commodore brand monitor, 1541 floppy drive, data cassette drive, joystick, modem (1200 bps!), and box of software. Nya. :-P

Seriously though, a straight A/V connection is much better than RF adapters.

Best Buy and other places sell big manually-switched multi-input boxes that have RF adapters built in, too. I've seen ones with as many as eight or ten inputs, four outputs, some with SVideo, some with component video, and even one with ethernet (why you wouldn't just buy a hub I don't know, but maybe people only want ethernet live to their xbox or ps/2 when actually using the console).

With any luck they will be other great EA games from the time like "Monster Construction Set" "Pinball Construction Set" "Archon" "Seven Cities of Gold" "Arctic Fox" "Caveman Ugh-lympics" "Wasteland"
Just to name a few. Has anyone seen Monster Construction Set anywhere but the C64? It was one of those great R3 games where you customize a monster and send him to fight other monsters for prize money to build better monsters...

Bringing back the memories with Mail Order Monsters and Wasteland. I will always remember attacking the Horde with BeastFu and getting Wasteland Herpes in one of the cities in Bryan Fargo's classic. If you do a search on the web, you will come across a Mail Order Monsters game rewritten by a fan to run on a PC.

Half of the games for the C64 had horrible graphics, but I remember how much fun they really were.

Re:Where's the full list? (1)

Bobo_The_Boinger (306158) | more than 10 years ago | (#8998728)

Oh, and another good game was Racing Destruction Set. Of course, whenever we would race on a moon with low gravity someone would invariably blow up and with the low gravity it would take about a minute fro the car to land each time the car bounced from the explosions. If I remember correctly you had to wait for the car to stop bouncing before you could race again.

Never! As recently as 3 months ago, in my last job, we used to have regular MAME summer games tournaments between the 3 of us in the office, often 3 or 4 times a day. Tension was created by trying to listen for the boss coming up the stairs. Its the idea game to squeeze in quickly like that.

Re:Cheap Sid Chips ? (2, Interesting)

polyp2000 (444682) | more than 10 years ago | (#8999793)

For me the C64 Sid Chip music was as much important to me as the rest of the game. Im just wondering if this thing will include a real SID?

World stocks of SID's are practically out, the Elektron SidStation (a SID based midi groovebox) bought pretty much all the remaining stocks from wherever they came from.

It would be nice to think that the Sid was going back into production again in some form. But I suppose if it did, it would not quite be the same, I doubt if they could source authentic capacitors for the filters for a start. but heck I can hope! Even so, this thing would be worth buying for that chip alone.

Re:Cheap Sid Chips ? (4, Insightful)

hiroshi912681 (589840) | more than 10 years ago | (#9001242)

I'm betting that they'll be quick and dirty ports of C64 titles, and most likely won't feature decent SID emulation. Just take a look at the Atari TV Games or the Namco arcade games... The Adventure easter egg is missing on the Atari TV Game, and the Pacman "patterns" are missing on the Namco one. Definitely not the original hardware... just ports that are good enough to fool you at first glimpse.

Re:Cheap Sid Chips ? (1)

billcopc (196330) | more than 10 years ago | (#9001636)

So maybe the original SIDs are out of stock, but wouldn't it be possible to produce a faithful clone ? Heck, there are tons of SID emulators out there for Winamp etc.. one could probably code a SID emu on a PIC for pennies.

Re:Cheap Sid Chips ? (3, Interesting)

polyp2000 (444682) | more than 10 years ago | (#9002274)

Oh sure there are good emulators, no doubt about that but they aint quite perfect. That maybe more down to the fact that there was an analog element to the sound.
The C64 had capacitors which were used for sound filters, this is pretty hard to recreate authentically through emulation. Addtionally no two C64's sounded identical, although I can categorically say that the original brown C64's sounded generically considerably better than the 2nd generation cream colored C64's which had an updated SID and possible different filters which let to a harsher sound lacking in the bottom (bass) end. In a selfless gratuitous way the SID chip was kinda like the Moog of the microcomputer world. You can get close ... but no cigar without the real thing.

Other than the Epyx Games series, Realm of Impossibility, and The Movie Monster Game, I can't remember what C64 games I wasted so many hours of my childhood on. 30 games sounds like a lot.

These games were all great, by the way. I'd love to see a remake of the Movie Monster game. I think it was an Epyx game, where you'd be Godzilla or a ,arshmallow man, or just about any big monster from the 50's B-movies, and the goal was to smash a bunch of cities before the citizens shot you down. It was a riot.

If I remember correctly, you were basically invulnerable if you were the Blob, but it would take forever to knock the buildings down. Godzilla was more well rounded.

I'm forgetting a game, the battledroid game I think. I couldn't find it on Lemon64.com [lemon64.com] .

Sports Games fun (4, Funny)

Flyboy Connor (741764) | more than 10 years ago | (#8998878)

Ah... Epyx Sports Games.

I remember it still. First, you had the 100 meter dash. That meant hitting the space bar very fast for about 15 seconds. Then, you had the 200 meter dash. That meant hitting the space bar very fast for 30 seconds. Then, you had the 400 meter dash and you stopped playing.

A friend of mine had an easy time winning those dash events. But he had fixed a small strip of wood to the end of a drill and used that to hit the space bar with something like a 100 RPMs. His character finished in a few seconds. Not so good for the keyboard, though.

You don't remember it quite clearly though. It required a joystick. For the sprints, you had to rock the joystick back and forth really rapidly. For things like diving, you basically just beat the shit out of the joystick trying to pull off as many tricks as possible.

I think the Sumemr Games box should have had a picture of a broken joystick on the cover.

Re:Sports Games fun (1)

Flyboy Connor (741764) | more than 10 years ago | (#9010736)

You're right! And indeed, my friend hit his joystick with the drill (it's really a true story, except that the joystick was trashed and not the keyboard -- trashing the keyboard would be very bad with a C64, because it's inseparable from the computer, as you know).

And what about that diving! I remember that the judgement went as follows: if you hit the water correctly, the more you had moved the joystick, the better your score. And if you hit the water incorrectly, you were in a world of pain, probably.

There's some problems here... (2, Interesting)

JMZero (449047) | more than 10 years ago | (#8999080)

Many classic C64 games used the keyboard - either for all or some gameplay functions. Even Jumpman (the best game ever - try my free remake!) used the keyboard during the menu screens (and to select a run-speed).

Are they going to include a keyboard? If not, are they going to try to rewrite parts of these games? Or are they going to limit this to really bad titles like "California Games" and whatever else they can find that doesn't use the keyboard?

Perhaps they can munge together necessary functionality by having a few extra buttons that function as different keyboard keys according to the game being played?

Re:There's some problems here... (1)

antime (739998) | more than 10 years ago | (#9004318)

California Games is a great game!

You do have a point - the Games series had you enter your name on the keyboard before starting. The highscore save feature will naturally have to be cut and all simultaneous two-player events will be a lot less fun.

M.U.L.E.!! Actually, anything by Sid Meier (Pirates!)or Dan/Danielle Bunten (Seven Cities of Gold, Heart of Africa. Also Robot Rascals, but you'd need the extras to play that game.)

Those are obvious, what else....

I spent a lot of time with a Electronic Arts game called Racing Destruction Set. Also Adventure Construction Set, though I don't know if I'd expect non-freaks to learn that system.

Portal was an absolutely killer idea for a game, storytelling through research.

Maniac Mansion has to be mentioned. "Oh, if only someone would mention Maniac Mansion!" Maybe Zak McCracken too, though I don't know as much about that.

Many of the old Atarisoft arcade ports are actually of very good quality. Rights, rights!

And, although I'm biased, old issues of Loadstar, as it'd be nice to see some of my old games again....

However, it has to be asked: how will this work? Most Commodore games were tape or disk-based. Its disk drives, in particular, had their own microprocessor, and some programs were known to make use of that. In a software-based emulation solution those considerations are bad enough, but a hardware emulator will have to work that much harder to solve them.

And will it contain a fake internal disk drive? Maybe with a writable flash memory area? That'd be rather cool.

Re:My votes for inclusion (2, Insightful)

Bambi Dee (611786) | more than 10 years ago | (#9003046)

The websites is low on details, but it mentions a price of EUR 30 -- no idea what that means with regard to production costs, but somehow I don't think there'll be anything particularly cool about this little toy. Apparently similar joystick consoles contained sloppy ports rather than originals, and if they go that route there'll be no need to simulate the original hardware too accurately.

What I find somewhat more interesting is that Tulip's hinting at further Commodore-branded gaming products; though frankly I don't see the need for cheap reduced-functionality clones whose only appeal is that something about them is fashionably "retro".

Considering your eclectic taste in games, there's a chance those 30 games won't include *any* of the rather cerebral games you would prefer. Straight arcade games seem more likely. Is more in tune with the retro schtick anyway - something undemanding and grotesquely pixelated for modern people to simultaneously enjoy and laugh about. (Jaded? Me? Jumping to conclusions?)

Now if this TV stick thingie used 30-in-one cartridges instead... oh, well.

C64 is the BEST 8 bit computer (0)

Was BAR NONE the best 8 bit computer. All you Atari or Apple users know its true too! VGN [vg-network.com] --- the BEST emulation related resource on the net!

M.U.L.E. (1)

I cannot believe you people forgot M.U.L.E. [ucsd.edu] For shame.

Multiplayer support?? (1)

I sure hope you can somehow hook two units together to multiplay. Anyone remember Wizard of Wor [lemon64.com] ? It was actually the first computer game I ever played, in 1983. Damn those were some good times, back then... I still play it with Vice [viceteam.org] sometimes, though you want to play it co-op multiplayer for maximal fun.

If you would like to get stuff for Vice, check out Arnold [c64.org] . It seems they have every C64 title I've ever heard of.

That was a good one. The first computer game I ever played was Mystery House [sierraplanet.com] by sierra.

It was the first text-adventure game with graphics. I remember being very frustrated because I couldn't put out the fire because I couldn't figure out how to say "put out fire with pitcher of water"
