2024 is a leap year, and February 29th is Leap Day! Can we calculate leap years on a Commodore 64 in BASIC and 6502 Assembly Language? Of course we can. We also learn about why we have leap years, Julian and Gregorian calendars, question if it's Simon's or Simons' BASIC, figure out binary long division, notice some strange coincidences, and see Robin's ancestors in some 1962 movie footage that is barely on-topic. It's fun!
'Marbles Solitair' is a puzzle game mainly written in Basic for the C64. The aim of the game is to remove as many marbles as possible. In the best case you can finish with one marble left.
This is the C64 version of 'Castle Quest' an old school text adventure game, which was previously also released for VIC-20. Your quest: rescue the kidnapped princess! You can get the game as digital download for a bargain (name your own price) to support the developer.
Let’s dive back into the bin of broken dreams and see if we can save another C64!

Way back in 1979 in Japan, Hiroshi Suzuki programmed a game for the Commodore PET that many consider the first-ever Stealth game: Manbiki Shonen aka Shoplifting Boy. Predating Castle Wolfenstein, it's a game in which a young shoplifter attempts to clear a supermarket of all items on the shelves without being caught.

In this video the 8-Bit Guy is having a look at a very special computer. It's not so much the computer itself but because of who it belongs to: Martin Galway, the famous chiptune musician from back in the day.

This is the StoryTllr C64 port of the first part of Davide Bucci's The Queen's Footsteps - now released as GPL 3.0. The only real difference with the original version should be some minor engine-default behaviors and, of course, the presence of graphics in each location.

Axis/Cascade is no more. We are all still shaken by the unexpected death of our friend and group mate Patrick aka Axis/Cascade. We wanted to express our sorrow, so I coded a little intro, which you can find in the C64 demo section of this page. The following text is a rough excerpt taken from the scroller:
Dear Patrick, may this be the condolence from the the group that was co-founded by you long time ago. We want to give you our last salute. I (Zeldin) know how much you were breathing the spirit of the scene. That's why I thought a goodbye demo would have made you happy. You and me exchanged lots of mails about how much we both enjoyed the good ol' days and of course: how much we miss them... It was this tie that emotionally connected us for over 15 years. Thanks for all your help in supporting the group and your indefatigable endeavour in spreading our name. Your tattoos were legendary! Thanks for your work on fb and youtube. Your channels were appreciated by a lot of people. Thanks for being such a good chap. You'll be sorely missed!!!
Mach's gut, Patrick... den Adler im Herzen, sge4ever!
