Original Pieces bug fixed, last month of Pieces II Level Design Compo!
30.01.2022

Pieces is a puzzle game that was coded back in the mid 90s. Unfortunately, it never received an official commercial release due to the fading C64 market. A "crack" of Pieces has existed for a while, but this version did not fix a bug from the original that prevented one of its levels from being solvable.

Thanks to the attention received as a result of our Pieces II Level Design Compo, the scene group Excess has just produced a version that fixes this bug and a few others. Download it here: Pieces +3FP – enjoy! It is easy to pick up, but hard to pick down.

Back to Pieces II: The deadline of our Level Design Compo is 2022/02/28 – just one month away! So, fire up our level editor (Java based; Windows executable), get those grey cells going and become a part of the game with your own created levels. There are some great vouchers to be won which can be used for any item in our store.
Have fun, and good luck!
