Name: Theater of War
Author: Ghislain
With special thanks to: orion70 for feedback, PDF manual + alternate graphics.
Released: November 25, 2010
Requirements: Unexpanded VIC-20. Disk Drive is optional if you'd like to see the hi-res intro splash screen + loader instruction program before the main game program is loaded.
Description: A WW2 Tactical Strategy game where you play the role of a German general on the Eastern Front in Russia.

It is Spring 1943. After the debacle of the Wehrmacht at Stalingrad, the German High Command has decided to regroup to secure our position on the Eastern Front. Once the offensive is regained, the objective is to strike a final swift blow against the heart of the Soviet Capital. While you will be severely outnumbered, there is a dearth of quality enemy officers due to Stalin's Great Purge of military commanders who he deemed not loyal to pure communist ideology. You should use the enemy's inferior strategy to your advantage. Every unit you deploy will have strengths and weaknesses. Use them wisely!

There is also a two-player option.

Name: Face Versus Heel
Author: Ghislain
Released: December 18, 2010
Requirements: Unexpanded VIC-20 + Disk Drive.
Description: A pro-wrestling simulator where the outcome is determined by a random number generator, but good tactics can maximize your chances.

The terms "face" and "heel" originate from wrestling's carnival days in the nineteenth century. "Face" (short for babyface) means hero, while "heel" means villain. Instructions are included in a text file with the download as well as within the game loader screen.

Name: The VIC-20 Bible Series II: Pentateuch - 40 column version and graphics
Authors: Mike and Orion70
Released (final version): December 23, 2010
Requirements: VIC-20 + 24K RAM
Description: Browse the first five books of the Old Testament (King James Version) in full 40 column screen. You can select single chapters, and scroll the text with cursor up/down. Take a look at the hi-res cliparts used as "book covers", to graphic depictions of the main episodes of Graphics, and read about the very first steps of mankind in full 40-column text processing made using Mike's Minigrafik. Mike also elaborated a text compression / extraction routine to fit the whole Torah in your VIC-20 :wink: .

Download:
d81 disk and batch file for easy program launch

To elevate your spirit, copy and unzip file to your VICE main directory, then double-click on pentateuch.cmd. Otherwise, expand your VIC to 24K, set the true drive emulation, the disk drive 8 as a 1581, then type LOAD"*",8,1. Wait for the program to load, then RUN and wait for the main menu to load (don't press any key at the intro screen).
