OutrageIn the tradition of "Hawkeye", you are steering a hero through a number of platform levels. In a shop you can obtain different weapons. Outrage inspires through colorful graphics and great design.

Outrage was produced by Cosmos Designs for the Boeder Talent Competition in cooperation with the 64'er magazine a long time ago. However, it was not released back then. We in Protovision bought the rights to distribute the game from Bernd Buchegger, who supplied us with the remnants of the game – of course without source codes and with a few bugs and glitches we'd liked to get fixed before a release. However, we were lacking the resources to work on this game, so we were looking for help. Psytronik came along and showed interest in finalizing and distributing the game, but they, too, were facing the same problems as we did. Thanks to everyone involved in this project, we can finally announce that Outrage has been completed!


  • 5 levels fully packed with finest arcade action (Hawkeye style)
  • Each level with a monstrous end boss
  • A shop to buy ammunition, smartbombs and more
  • Colorful graphics, animations and special effects
  • Beautifully crafted SID in-game music and sfx
  • Title picture from STE'86 (Steve Day)
  • PAL and NTSC compatible

Update: Finally, Outrage is in development again. We can’t tell you yet when Outrage will be available, but we thank everyone involved in this effort and look forward to presenting it to you when the time has come.

We are looking for an able coder who can help us finish Cosmos Designs‚ almost legendary Outrage. Special challenge mode: no source codes available, but a few nasty bugs. Sadly we don’t have the funds to finish the game on our own, so we need you. If you think you can help us out in any way, please let us know using our contact form.
