UWOL: Quest For Money Trailer (64KB C64 Cartridge Version) (8580 SID)Date Added 27/03/2012Views 1191Flag as inappropriate
This video is of Albarbi's conversion of The Mojon Twins' 'UWOL' running on the 8-Bit, 1Mhz Commodore 64C. This is the 64KB cartridge version that was originally created by iAN COOG of HF as a test game for our new 64KB cartridge hardware, but it was so much fun we had to look into the possibility of publishing it!
Originally released back in 2010, the C64 port of this superb little platformer has stood the test of time admirably and remains as enjoyable today as was on its initial release. With the ZX Spectrum game designer na_th_an on board, Algarbi rewriting the code and Conrad on soundtrack duties, UWOL's classic arcade design and addictive gameplay translated over to the C64 to create a game that's arguably better than the original - UWOL is more than deserving of it's respectable 8.9/10 score over at CSDB.
UWOL is both NTSC and PAL compatible, and it's joystick-only control means that it's even playable on the Commodore 64 GS console. The box was created using the promotional artwork by Ferrán Criado, and the game comes in a red cartridge shell complete with a printed manual.
The game will be available to buy from http://www.rgcd.co.uk in April 2012.
