VIC Game Club No. 11 – Paddle Games

Paddles were a popular form of input in early arcade and home video games. The VIC library provides a good selection of paddle games and is very representative of the era. If you don't have a real VIC with paddles to play these games on, activate paddle emulation in VICE by pressing ALT-Q to use a m...

Re: VIC Game Club No. 10 – Cometfall

I agree, this is a fun game. But unlike hasseapa, I'm not even close to beating it yet :D

Re: VIC Game Club No. 9 – Arcade Racers

There is a max score in Pole Position because the race time and track laps are limited. That makes it lousy for high score competitions but it's still a great game :D

NitroWheels (just released) is the game I want Race Fun to be. Definitely give NitroWheels a try :)

Re: New release: NitroWheels

Excellent! I tried both difficulties a few time. The human setting is good practice and helped me improve my score at cyborg.

This is now one of my favorite VIC racing games. Thank you, Enrico!

Re: New release: NitroWheels

Wow, thank you Enrico! I think that made a big difference. The steering is much more refined.

However, it is going to take me some practice to play for 5-6 minutes straight like you do :D

Re: New release: NitroWheels

Just played this in VICE. Great work! The graphics are perfect for the VIC and I love the audio.

I agree with orion70 that the controls are a bit twitchy, but I'll have to try it on real hardware to know for sure.

Re: VIC Game Club No. 9 – Arcade Racers

My new Deathrace best is 28778. Dearhrace 28778 akator.png The best I've figured is that speed needs to be at least 250 throughout the game with no crashes to get to the first checkpoint, speed 260 to get to the second. I doubt I will beat this because it would require maintaining 270 throughout the...

Deathrace 11151. This was the first time I made it to "extended play" and that appears to give a pretty hefty bonus.

I doubt I will be able to score as high on the Intermediate and Advanced settings. I am surprised by how much more difficult the Advanced setting is.
