Vinny has let the cat out of the bag, so to speak. The Commodore 64 game I was developing is called Toxic Frenzy! It’s based on a Game and Watch game called “Oil Panic“. In this one, however, it’s toxic waste liquid you’re catching in a bucket. Drop it into the barrel carried by the man below and don’t spill it on the customers waiting outside.
Vinny has put together a nice story to go along with the game. From the looks of things it took me from September 22, 2020 to October 31, 2020. I wasn’t going full-speed, however. There were days I had other things on and others I wasn’t up to it. So on and off it was around 5.5 weeks.
I’ll admit there were times when I didn’t expect I’d get it done at all. Times of frustration when things didn’t work how they should, when things stopped working or when I didn’t think I could get something to work.
All of this is in the past now and I’m very excited it’s completed. One of the other devs requested a video of the titlescreen. This is from a couple of weeks ago and is missing several things, so there’s more to see:
It was a lot of fun programming the game and I’m glad I completed it as I wanted, including a few suggestions from others.
The game now has a Christmas theme as it’s being released with FREEZE64 magazine’s Christmas edition at the end of the year as an exclusive download. I’m very pleased with that!
