Probably the most exciting neo/retro development that surfaced last week: Paul Koller — formerly responsible for bringing AdamAtomic’s Canabalt to the Commodore 64 as C64ANABALT — fully revealed Super Bread Box, a C64 remake of Vlambeer’s freeware Super Crate Box.

While the latter’s already retro-styled designs might seem an easy task for porting back to vintage hardware, homebrew site RGCD goes into full technical detail here of just how challenging the task of replicating the heavier weaponry & screen-fulls of enemies actually was.

A full 64KB version is expected to be released for sale on cartridge by the end of the year, including, says RGCD, all unlockable progress & online crates-collected counts handled, awesomely, by password generation for each session.

  1. Hey there – thanks for covering this :)

    The full-fat version of Super Bread Box won’t actually be available until Spring (Q1) 2013. It’s the ‘compo’ version that’ll be released for download on the 1st of December :)
