Get 'Em DX (16KB C64 Cartridge Version) (6581 SID)Date Added 05/10/2012Views 842Flag as inappropriate
This video is of Georg Rottensteiner's Get 'Em DX running on the 8-Bit, 1Mhz Commodore 64. This is the 16KB cartridge version that was created for the 2012 RGCD C64 16KB Cartridge Game Development Competition!
A tribute to Nyarlu Labs' 'Forget Me Not', Get 'Em DX is a procedurally generated maze shmup that plays like Pac Man with guns (and more importantly, with two players). The goal of each level is to eat all the crosses/dots, grab the key and head for the exit.
Featuring graphics/box design by iLKke and music by Sean Connolly, Get 'Em DX 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 cartridge version of the game comes in a purple cartridge shell complete with a printed manual and bonus stickers!
The cartridge version will be available in two packaging types. The standard card carton at £20 (Europe) / £21 (Rest of World) including shipping and fees. The deluxe version comes in a plastic case (a Universal Game Case with specially cut foam insert) and is priced at £25 (Europe) / £27 (Rest of World) including shipping and fees.
The tape version will be on sale priced at a modest £3.99 and the disk version at £6.99 (not including shipping costs).
The game will be available to buy on cartridge from www.rgcd.co.uk, and tape/disk from www.psytronik.net in October 2012.
The retail version contains the two player mode, whereas the free version (available soon at www.rgcd.co.uk) is single player only. The single player version will also be included in a future update of Manomio's C64 app for iPhone and iPad.
