Now he has to face a hostile world full of alien and giant reptiles. Luckily help is at hand. You must pilot John's squadron ships, through the alien infested planet.

SEUCK Compo 2019 Entry #2 - Robo Form X by VG VOX

Here comes the second entry for the OFFICIAL C64 SEUCK COMPO. Written by VG VOX, with aid of the standard Shoot Em Up Construction Kit. This is a futuristic blaster, in which you control a robot, which has to save the world from enemy forces. There are several vicious boss attacks to battle your way through. There's even a cool remix of the original tune, Dance Nation, which VG Vox had originally stuck on the front end. I have supplied that one also, as well as the new build :) Have fun, and zap those baddies into oblivion.

SEUCK Compo 2019 Entry #1 - Nucleo 447 by Leonardo Vettori

The Official C64 SEUCK Compo 2019 kicks off the entries with a first entry from a new contributor, Leonardo Vetorri with Nucleo 447. A vertical scrolling futuristic blaster. Yep, it's one of those cool SEUCK space blasters (My all time favourite genre of games), in which you fly through the deep voids of space, and fight against the evil aliens, and blast away having a good time. This time, you fly through a crystal world, doing battle against an evil machine, and its creator, and many of its minions. Go on, have a good blast. I'm sure you SEUCK fans will want to. Along with a breathtaking front end and a brand new T.N.D tape loader tune, "Let Me Go Home" with my own colourful, but oldschool style loader bitmap.

Happy New Year  

Happy New Year!!!!  ... I hope you didn't get too drunk :)

Sadly no brand new releases today, but this was mainly due to lack of free time. As so much has been going on over the past couple of months. There are some new things in store for 2019. I hope to continue producing brand new games, launch some more music and also participate in another Blazon mega demo and make music for a Psytronik Game . Another plan of action also includes a game project intended for this year's RGCD 16KB game cartridge competition. Assemble It will also continue later on this month, where I give you a basic introduction to smooth scrolling a screen vertically. At the moment my first thing being made is something for the Ultimate 64 group. However here is some good news - started already:

A new SEUCK Compo Launched

Following the success of last year's SEUCK Compo 2018. The New Dimension is very proud to present the Official C64 SEUCK Compo 2019. This is a competition in which is to design and develop a full game, created using Sensible Software's/Palace/Outlaw's Shoot 'Em Up Construction Kit or Jon Well's Sideways Scrolling SEUCK Left (As no Right scrolling version exists). No programming knowledge is required and this is supposed to be a fun competition. Remote entries only (Email). 



This competition is open to beginners as well as the SEUCK regulars. There's no themed or split category this year. Enhancements are welcome, although the prize is mainly to do with enhancing the games. SEUCK Redux is also allowed. Who will be the next winner of the SEUCK Compo to be crowned along with Eleanor Burn's Valkyrie 3 - The Templar this year?
