Name: Carling the Spider
Author: Joe 'Polygon' Dixon
Released: July 2009 by Psytronik Software
Requirements: Unexpanded VIC 20 (PAL or NTSC)
Description: This is an excellent Chuckie Egg style game for the Vic 20, coming with 8 unique screens of addictive platforming action. Just bought the Premium disk version and got the emulation image to play - it is a really fun little game! Also has a rather neat title tune too :)
What tops things off is the ability to buy the game in professional packaging - though digital download is available for a very small cost (Or a cheaper budget edition with a disk and sleeve).

Name: Tribbles 2009
Author: Anders Persson
Released: August 12, 2009
Requirements: VIC-20 + 8K


Tribbles 2009
New version with an useful change!

The tribbles now sits on an alphabetic shelf before they fall down.

Image

This makes it easier to play, for example over the internet using Skype's new function to share your screen. Or if your opponents just are too far from the computer keyboard. Let's say you are by the keyboard, then your opponent just have to say the letter where he wants to place his tribble, then you press the letter on the keyboard and the tribble will go there. Then when everyone have placed their tribbles, the shelf is removed and the tribbles starts to fall down. (It's possible to place tribbles with the cursor keys or joystick as before too.)

The shelf also makes the game a bit more logical I think... I mean, what prevented the tribbles from starting to fall before? ;)
