Hey everyone! Did any of you play the game Sizzler by Psytronik? I got it and it's a fun, cool step in the right direction. It almost reminds me of a NES game, which is a good thing. I know you can't shoot in the game and you just duck and jump and hang from platforms, but it's a neat game. It appears to be influenced by Thing on a Spring, which comes with the C64 Mini. There is even a reference to the game as the spring character is seen in the background in Sizzler. For me I feel as though the game is too difficult, but I'll keep practicing and use videos for tips on how top play. So far I can't make much progress without using the savestate function. I also think the games Bonkey Kong and Dog are cute and fun. Also, the homebrews of Donkey Kong and Donkey Kong Jr. are very impressive. Organism also looks cool! I see the C64 Mini as in some ways better than NES and in some ways worse. What do you think?
Well, I'll admit that my opinion is absolutely biased, but I much prefer my C64 and C64Mini to anything Nintendo produced. I just enjoy the extremely large and diverse catalog of the games and programs available for the C64 over what is available for other gaming consoles. On top of all of this, the Commodore provides a completely open canvas for software developers to create just about anything for it. I'm looking forward to the release of the full sized TheC64.
I haven't play Sizzler, but my most resent favorite game from Psytronik is Steel Ranger.

DG5KR: When I was young I felt like the world was turning faster. The C64 was a world full of adventure. First Basic, then Assembler, playing incredible games with friends. It was the best time of my life.

j.: @lordvico - I've noticed this with lots of games. I wondered if this was a PAL vs. NTSC thing and also wondered why the screen type wasn't translated for me.

j.: william - don't pull the joystick. If you need to pull to insert a USB stick - get a USB hub so you can have both plugged in at the same time. One way to save would be to use the game save-state feature. This would be the easiest to do for 4 or less

william: So far I am pretty frustrated using the BASIC. Every time I pull out the joy stick to put the usb into the machine it pops out of BASIC and goes back to the main menu. How does one write a program in BASIC and save it?

Head Over Heals: Hi Peeps. I am a 45 year old Australian C64 Mini addict, and I have been using/modding the mini for the last four weeks. I have transferred this awesome little computer to a custom made, hard wood box and fitted a USB - UART adapter & dual DP9 joy ports.
