Name: Olympic Dash
Author: Ghislain
Released: January 13, 2013 (originally programmed in 1996)
Requirements: Unexpanded VIC-20 + Joystick + Disk Drive.
Description: A proof-of-concept for a track and field action game. The 100 meter dash was the only event that has been programmed so far.

As I continue to resurrect my lost VIC-20 games, I bring you "Olympic Dash". I had made an ASCII 100 meter dash and javelin throw event-based game back in 1988 and me and my friends spent many an afternoon mashing the joysticks trying to beat each other's records. In 1996, I had made several graphics for a multi-event track and field game (in the same vein as Epyx's "Summer Games" and Konami's "Track and Field"), but I had only ever programmed the 100 meter dash event and putting it aside so I could finish programming it at a future date.

So instead of pondering and mulling over for another 17 years to finish the other events, I decided to make a splash screen, instructions menu and mock screenshots of the unfinished events packaged around the 100 meter event--just to finally put it out now. Despite it being a single-event game, it is still playable. Just use your imagination as to how the other events that I wanted to program would be like.

Name: Street Battle
Author: Ghislain
Released: January 27, 2013 (originally made in 1993)
Requirements: Unexpanded VIC-20 + Disk Drive.
Description: A simple street fighting game.

I must have made dozens of ASCII fighting games on the VIC-20 back in the day. So I made one that was somewhat complete with actual graphics, but I never properly finished it until now.

To play, you use the function keys to perform jump, punch, kick and dodge against various enemies.

Name: magiTOOL
Author: Ghislain
Released: February 3, 2013
Requirements: Unexpanded VIC-20 + Disk Drive.
Description: Self-made toolkit that I used back in the day with my VIC-20 projects.

In the pre-internet days, I didn't have any VIC-20 tools like an ML monitor, graphics or sound editor. So I made my own. These were made between 1990-1996 and I put them all together under a single package:

magiPROG: Machine language assembler that uses decimal numbers.
magiCHAR: Build 8x8 custom characters
magiDRAW: 64x96 multicolor image editor
magiSONG: Play and record music with a piano keyboard. 7 voice combinations and 3 scales are supported.

Name: Worm-Out + Paratrooper
Author: Ghislain
Released: February 23, 2013 (originally made in 1988-1990)
Requirements: Unexpanded VIC-20 + Disk Drive.
Description: 3 Simple VIC-20 Games I made a long time ago.

I've 'remastered' two previously-released VIC-20 games: WORM-OUT II and PARATROOPER. I've repackaged these with the never before released WORM-OUT I that I created in 1988 (with some added improvements). The instructions on how to play these games can be read when you start a game.

Name: VICroLeague Wrestling
Author: Ghislain
Released: March 1, 2013 (originally made in 1991)
Requirements: Unexpanded VIC-20 + Disk Drive.
Description: A simple pro wrestling game.

Here is another VIC-20 game I had originally made when I was in high school in my bedroom. I've improved the game interface and graphics loading routines. This version contains the original 64x64 pixel wrestling move animations I had designed. I will likely make a follow-up (VICroLeague Wrestling 2) with even more matches and a greater variety of animated wrestling holds.

Name: VICroLeague Wrestling 2
Author: Ghislain
Released: March 2, 2013
Requirements: Unexpanded VIC-20 + Disk Drive.
Description: A simple pro wrestling game that uses 64x64 pixel images to animate the action.

This is a follow-up to the original, but features twice as many wrestling move animations. I was originally going to program multiple matches in this edition, but I decided to stop after finishing MADNESS MAN vs ULTRAMANIAC.
