We’re going to play a shedload of Commodore 64 games, some from each issue of Zzap64. I can’t wait to see how this turns out.
So we’ve been doing the ST Format Challenge for over a year now, starting life as a forum thread before becoming this site and branching out into YouTube. The ST Format Challenge, for those unaware, is a project where I play a selection of games from every issue of ST Format. We’ve made it to issue 21 (and 13 issues of ST/Amiga Format too). The videos however are some way behind, so I’m going to focus on getting those caught up on the Atari ST side. However, we’re going to bring in a new strand for this site.
The Zzap64 Challenge. We’re going to do the exact same thing, but with Zzap64. Why? Well I’ve been playing C64 games lately and it turns out they’re awesome. We’re going to start by taking a selection of the games listed in the first issue’s top games list to give us an excuse to cover some older stuff too, then we’ll move through issue by issue covering new and awesome games.
What you’ll hopefully get is a written article here on Monday, a video on our YouTube channel on Wednesday, then the Atari ST video going up on Friday, each week. Let me know in the comments if there are any games you want to see covered and what your thoughts are on where we’re going with this.
