    From Gabe: G'day OCAU team... Thought your retro-loving, C64-worshipping, platform game-playing readers might get a kick out of this. A brand-new freeware indie PC game with 600 (!) screens of C64-style graphics. And a '1 score per person' global online ranking. Yeah, if you've had enough of VVVVVV, Super Meat Boy, Braid, etc then maybe it's time for... ....Rocky Memphis & the temple of Ophuxoff.

    As in..

    (voice 1) There's 600 screens to get through....
    (voice 2) Ophuxoff!!!!

    Here's the download link. Here's my big interview which includes * Making of Rocky Memphis, * Updates on the other remakes in progress (The Last Ninja, Myth, Stu & Smila's Retro Arcade) * A lookback on the sales of Armalyte, their first officially-sanctioned commercial C64 -> PC remake (With a possible console port?).

    Having played it through now its a great fun little game, unlimited lives and saving for those strapped for time. The retro graphics and music with old platforming precision jumping and annoying deaths bring back fond memories of playing c64

    Looks like fun, unfortunately doesn't run on Win7 64, or WinXP 32bit. My Quad/5870 holding me back?

    Funky music :thumbup:

    EDIT: This is fantastic, but doesn't seem to work with my "PS One style" USB gamepad. The tunes are fantastic I must say...

    I check the forum and see if there are any possible solutions...

    I played it through on Win7 Pro. x64 with no probs that i recall

    Don't know if it was just me but part of the music reminded me of the Master of Magic C64 game, but as you say brilliant music

    Hmm, this game reminds me of Montezuma's revenge on the C64 which is why I wanted to play.

    Looks like it want to launch but it just closes immediately after it launches then does nothing :( Dammit...

    It's definitely got the classic Retro difficulty: Easy to learn, hard to master :D

    The missing link in a lot of today's games IMO.

    I purchased this application called Xpadder (10 bucks) and works great!

    The game is great and the music fantastic. But I doubt I will complete it. It's a bit repetitive after a while. 600 screens is nice but IMO a little bit too much...

    Great stuff, loving it.

    No emulator problems here, working fine on a real C64
