Hello Richard. I bought ZZAP64 ISSUE 8 and there is CRUISER X 79. Is it in full version or demo?

It is a playable demo. The full game is still in production. Release date aims to be December. Although it is likely the game will be finished before December.

Better than ever ! Good !

Darn, this is what I call 'fast paced'...my blood pressure :)))
Nice tune, graphics and scrolling. Really good work!

P.S.: Spelled the title wrong in the vid...shame on me

Thank you for your kind words and review. I'm glad you are looking forward to the full game. Like promised, the game will be a free download on this site. Possibly around about December 2022, if all goes well, possibly sooner.

I hope to add some additional options to the title screen that can ease the game play a bit. Like amount of credits to continue a level, and also auto firing mode on/off. There is no autofire in the preview because I wanted to make it compatible with RGL's theC64. Holding fire on the joystick will trigger the smart bomb (if carried). That will take place after all 16 levels are finished. 

Added playable preview V3.

This project has been very active over the past two/three months. I am past the half way mark with the levels. Planned release date for the final release intends to be December 2022 if all goes well.

It's March! Any Update Yet?

I'm going to continue with the project this week. However due to missing assets, I will be going into "Plan B" mode. I will start with level design using the demo graphics. It might be a long process to design all 16 levels using the same graphics charset data, but hopefully later on the charsets can be altered afterwards.

This freeware game project has now officially continued

Saw a post on Lemon64 forums, did try signing up but after 3 days and a few days trying resend activation email i gave up.

The reason i changed the music on "U-Type" was because i did not notice that the tune was from this unreleased Game and i felt bad for using it.

This Game is looking good, so good luck with getting it finished.

Hey, don't feel too bad using my tune. I don't mind one bit :)

Great 2nd preview ! Full game play for yourselves.

Lot of fun😎😎great sid also

Awesome preview !!! When the final work?? Thanks a lot.

It has been slow, and there was bad news with it earlier on this year (A blog post will be coming shortly) but I am aiming to get this game finished later on this year. Despite losing all of my data about 4 weeks ago, I managed to pick up the pieces and put the jigsaw together.

Thanks Richard for your sincere response and above all for all your efforts for the whole Commodore Community.

Project is back in operation. It was stalled for some time, due to missing graphics. Nothing else came on the graphics front since the playable demos. So I have decided to continue the project by designing the levels myself using the existing graphics, and also making some tweaks to the background characters and tiles - in order to make levels look a tad-different - although a same concept in in the demo.
