Protovision is proud to present Sam's journey from Knights of Bytes, probably the most ambitioned platform game for the Commodore 64 of all times!

The digital edition of Sam's Journey includes:

- Sam disk version PAL (4 d64 files)
- Sam disk version NTSC (4 d64 files)
- Sam cartridge version PAL Englisch (GMod2 files)
- Sam cartridge version PAL Spanisch (GMod2 files)
- Sam THEC64 mini version (CRT and CJM files)
- Manual as PDF

Note for cartridge versions: the cartridge files are currently emulated only by VICE 3.1+. They cannot be used with an EasyFlash cartridge or 1541 Ultimate. For the disk versions, these limitations do not apply.

Although Sam is quite small, he can run very fast and jump even higher. That's why the camera has to hurry up and keep track, no matter where he's going!

Sam has a variety of basic moves. While running and jumping are obvious skills, his ability to climb makes him able to reach new heights. And with his free diving skill, he can explore the underwater passages of the deep sea.

The world of Sam's Journey is not only a visual one. Every scenery that Sam traverses on his journey comes with its own unique song that emphasizes the location's atmosphere.

Game Features:

- Classic 8-Bit Platform Action
- Very colorful Graphics
- Fast Free-Directional Scrolling
- Many Basic Moves Plus Climbing And Swimming
- 6 Special Costumes With Additional Skills
- 3 Overworld Maps
- 27 Huge Levels With Multiple Sections
- 2000 Screens To Be Explored
- 14 Different Graphical Settings
- 19 Beautiful Tunes
- Sound Effects
- Hidden Items To Be Found
- Secret Passages To Be Discovered
- Checkpoint System
- Savegame Option, also on Cartridge

Important information for NTSC users: The NTSC version of Sam is only available on disk and requires a REU (any size) or a REU emulation (e.g. 1541 Ultimate or Turbo Chameleon 64).

I bought the game some time ago, I will write briefly it is a phenomenon on a global scale. Very much respect for the Makers of Sam. Never in my life would I have thought that a game so shocking in every respect would be created on the C64! I recommend this title to everyone.

Most amazing C64 game EVER! It's a very polished jump-and-run, with a very modern design approach - no lives to be lost, but instead checkpoints everywhere. The focus is on exploring the levels, as it should be. The controls are tight, and considering the joystick has only one button, it's quite miraculous how well they managed to implement all the special moves.

With the Mario-style overworld map, each level can be re-played, to discover new hidden areas, using the new powers Sam collects. The replay value is huge, and the amount of time to complete the thousands of screens massive.

The graphics, sounds and music are all top-notch too, including a cute intro sequence, wonderful sprite animations and colorful backgrounds.

This is the first C64 game in a long, long time that managed to actually make me want to play it again, more than some modern games I'm currently playing. It's a true masterpiece, and deserves every bit of praise it gets. I just wish I could give it 10 stars out of 5...

It's obvious to me there's a lot of love in this title for the venerable C= 64. Sadly, I no longer have the hardware, but I am able to play this just fine with VICE. The digital download including the startup (.bat) file for the cartridge file is a huge plus too, as I'm not a VICE guru.

Controls seem tight, pace isn't too frenetic which is a good thing for me, being as my reflexes aren't what they used to be.

The artwork is great, level design is good, I know there are places I haven't figured out how to access, which keeps me wondering and going back to see if I can figure it out.

The checkpoint system is a great addition, and they seem to be well placed in terms of level progression.

All in all, a very satisfying title.

Extremely good and polished jump-and-run game with superb gameplay. the control and steering of the playersprite is very precise, all sprites and backgrouund-graphics in the game looks good and the music is also great. There are many levels to examine and the game has an intelligent checkpoint- and continue-system which don`t lead to frustration. So overall really a great game which makes alot of fun. Little bit sad, that the used fastloader in the game is not compatible to the SD2IEC at the moment. But who knows, maybe later either the SD2IEC-firmware gets an update or there will come another version with a compatible loader. At least, for me this game plays in the same class like other famous jump-and-run games do, like Super Mario, Sonic, Alex Kidd, Giana, Superfrog or Kid Chameleon. YEAH, another great C64-game.
