Joe Gunn is a superb new original C64 platformer by Georg Rottensteiner. It sorta plays like a cross between Dizzy and Rick Dangerous; though I'm sure there's a better comparison out there than that. LaMulana wouldn't be a million miles off.
The game has you skillfully avoiding enemies and solving item based puzzles. It's really rather simple, but I'm enjoying it quite a lot. Probably because I've got a soft spot for Commodore 64 games.
The controls are a little awkward at first, so here's a quick run down:Left/Right
: Walk Left or RightUp/Down
: Climb up and down laddersFire + Down
: ExamineFire + Up
: Use an ItemFire + Left or Right
: JumpSome advice to get started:
Climb down the ladder and press Fire + Down
to examine the skeleton - then press Fire + Right
to jump the spikes. Walk over to the entrance and press Fire + Up
to use the Scarab and open the door.
Unless you're lucky enough to have some way to transfer this onto a C64 disk, you'll need a C64 emulator to run it. I highly recommend WinVice
