Thread: Volley for Two - new C128 game

    Default Volley for Two - new C128 game

    bjonte has just released the teaser trailer for the upcoming C128 game Volley For Two! See

    https://kollektivet.nu/v42/

    It has been years since the last C128 game has been released commercially, and it looks as if this one will be distributed on https://itch.io

    And it makes use of REU, GeoRAM, or SuperCPU ram for extended playback viewing!

    The developer now tells me it's going to be free! He couldn't stand filling out the forms for the US Internal Revenue Service!

    This looks good and its great to have more games for the C128.

    Does anyone know why it was targeted at the C128, as on the face of it it seems to be
    well within the capabilities of the C64.

    Best wishes

    It's probably needing the faster CPU of the C128 for the ball physics.

    While I agree it looks great, it's just kind of a Pong-clone, isn't it? Not that interesting to me, sadly.

    Because nothing has been done for years using the capabilities of the C128. Volley for Two uses the greater memory of the C128, provides usable Help screens when the Help button is pushed, gives you a playback viewer (more playback when a REU, GeoRAM, or SuperCPU 128 ram is used), 10-key pad control when not using a joystick, and a secret screen (which I'm not allowed to speak about right now).
