Die Leute von Megastyle "basteln" an einem neuen Star Wars Spiel für den C64...
"The game is a remake of the Parker Brothers version of The Empire Strikes Back original released for the Atari 2600 and the Intellivision.
While the Empire we got on the C64 was based on the vector arcade game, the Parker Brothers game was a pretty fun side scrolling shooter.
We are doing an unofficial remake for the C64, and will be adding a couple new aspects to the gameplay to make it more interesting for us to play.
I am a huge fan of the movie, it was the first movie I saw as a kid and it left a lasting impression on me. Growing up with a C64,
it's always been a dream of mine to see the battle of Hoth on the machine, and when I suggested it to Chris, he immediately jumped on it!
We're two persons on the team now, me and Chris Stanley, the coder. So far we've got most of the elements put into the game,
and it's just enemies left and a couple game logic things to do. After that we will figure out the levels and start tweaking the gameplay.
We're hoping to get it released in 2020, since this year is the 40th anniversary of the film. Crossing fingers we can make that happen!"
