I said this on Facebook last night, but I have subscribed to the magazine since issue 4 (got the first 3 on eBay afterwards) but finally chose to NOT renew my subscription about a year ago.

I'm so old school Smiley that I haven't been doing the "digital thing" but preferred paper magazines, but I feel there's so much padding these days and not enough articles that are of interest to me.

I am keeping an eye on what is in them though, and should something interesting appear in the magazine (or a review of a game of mine Wink ) I will just get that single issue ... but so far that hasn't been the case.

... but they could've sold a single issue if they'd chosen to review Vallation. Wink Smiley Smiley

im are more more gonna to hate Retro Gamer more more now. Not due the issues its self, but thier app stinks like balls and very tired of it and forced of all the fun reading the issues.

That that put me off was im got a "Purchase complete library" TWICE when im tried to download the newest issue. But instead im got a popups. What a hell? Tricking me to do something different than its should have due? That trick ads and is also covered about 50% of screen in the library is insane and bad.

THis is so bad as im have now just dont like the app very much and is the last issue im purchasing. That sad because its great one, and the old app was more than fine, but they breaked all rules after update.

If you asked me, all ads like those should have been done in the discovery area, include the "Purchase Complete Library" ads. THis is what the tab was done, but they diddent do that.... Now they get a 1 star rating from me, due the too aggresive ads use in the Library section, which is now a mess.

So im need to say good bye to Retro Gamer for now. (and as im have seen, im actuelly write 2-3 times to so called costumer service, that newer reply).

they have been very very long about Sam Journey...

You know..it's a long journey..  Wink

Hehe, dunno what's up with me today with these fancy comments, must be all the turpentine inhaled yesterday. Smiley

PS. Agreed, Sam's got some niiiice gfx in there, Galencia being shmup has most of the bkg as usual, dark with stars but yea they used sprites to max.
There's also one other game (just played on reset64 mag disk) called 'The Bear Essentials', very cool and movement oddly reminds me of Jack the Nipper. Smiley

they have been very very long about Sam Journey, which also looks and fell excellent.

This game does not have that much backgroud, just excellent use of multiplexed sprites.

...lab analysis...

Now that was a C64 sprites lab analysis right there. Wink
Just remembered that the intro somewhat reminds me of the Retrograde, I like em when they have some big sprites roaming about the scenery!
The 'big box' publisher is protovision, btw, the same peeps that will print out that Sam Journey you mentioned earlier.

yes... im purchased the game. its also a fun game too.

Its a cool multi plexed sprites he have used it and have make sure he newer use more than 6 enemies on a line (last 2 is for shots).

The intro is also used rasterline, multiplexed sprites and mixed char mode both hi and lo graphics.

The black line that cover the chars is just extended sprites that moving.

Im should have taken a look here eailer :-), and its the first C64 im purchased in very long time.

So its smart use of multiplexed sprites for sure.

Its a 32kb game.

ps. Assembler you say?

So that's that Next thingie, looks cool and fancy, methinks Soks mentioned getting one, tho he professed only to do C64 games now that he is 'out of that closet'.  Cheesy

looks nice, but still yet to paid for the game. and also nice sprite system too.

Yep, some really nice surprises in this game, dunno how it was pulled, the intro stuff is rather impressive too. Cheesy
