The adventure continues in Realms of Quest IV where you assemble a group of heroes to do battle against the mysterious Time Lords inside the Dungeon. Thus befalls you, brave adventurer, to accept the challenge and venture forth into the labyrinth below to ensure that evil and chaos do not rise. If you can survive the perils that await beneath, there lay riches, glory and the immortality of your name.

Realms of Quest IV Features:

• 10 Dungeon Levels which have been designed by hand with numerous rooms, secret passages, riddles and traps to traverse and overcome.
• 10 races and 12 classes to choose from to create 8 players for your party.
• You will meet other heroes to help and guide you during your quest.
• Over 100 unique graphical portraits that depict the various monsters that you'll encounter as you travel throughout the Dungeon.
• Over 135 types of equipment to represent weapons, armor, gems, jewelry, potions, scrolls and miscellaneous magical items.
• 60 magic spells that you can cast.
• 3 game fonts to choose from.
• A 16 page printed instruction manual is also included.

All of this for your Commodore VIC-20, a disk drive and 16K of expansion memory. 24K is recommended as it features reduced disk loading times, an improved 3D graphical perspective and game music.

Side two features the Special Anniversary Editions of Realms of Quest I & II for the Unexpanded VIC-20. Also featured is the long-awaited Ultimate Quest: Catacomb for the Commodore 64 - originally created in 1989, now finally completed.

Name: Panicman
Authors: Dane Bills, Jeff Messner
Released: March 2, 2014
Requirements: VIC20 with +3k or +8k, joystick ( developed on NTSC)
Description: A maze game clone of a well known 80s game written in assembly
ScreenShot:
Image

Release Notes: 3/5/2014: change start address so you can load with just ,8. Locked the framerate to 30fps. This fixes the jumpy behavior on PAL.

Video of first test: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MKnd8T4pi18

Both versions should load and you can type 'run' from the basic prompt after loading.
e.g.: load "panicman3k.prg",8

There is no difference between the 3k and 8k version other than a splash screen to show the authors on the 8k. I just thought it might be nice to have the 8k executable for someone to run on the real iron if they didn't have a 3k cartridge. The 3K has received the most testing on real hardware.

+3k version:

Name: Get the Cat

Requirements: Unexpanded VIC-20 (joystick required)

download link: https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B6lVWB1ySMcrS0wtWVJ0cXBTcDA/edit?usp=sharing

Instructions: move left and right with the joystick. Press fire to place a block under your character, provided you have blocks left. Your character can step up one block only. You can let him fall from any height. The blocks fall randomly. Every fourth block falls directly above you, use it to your advantage. If you reach level 5,10,15,... you gain an extra live. Select normal or endless option. Choose Endless and you don’t lose lives, but no highscore is set.
