Edge Grinder, a Shoot’em Up in the spirit of R-Type, was released some days ago. It was programmed for “Format War”, which main idea is to start developing games for different machines. The lead platform for Edge Grinder was that C64, well, and Paul Kooistra, who already brought such great games like Sub Hunter, Star Sabre and Dead on time to the CPC, did it and converted Edge Grinder to the CPC. You can read more about the story of the game, get the source code and of course download it on its Format War page. I also added a download to this posting.
Axelay released Star Sabre last year at Cronosoft. After that he worked on an enhanced version of the game which is running on machines with at least 128k memory and the result of his efforts is now available: Star Sabre 128k.
