After 18 long months, a new issue of the awesome Reset magazine is finally here. Next to reviews of many other recent C64 games, Kevin Tilley (Unkle K) and Rob Caporetto (Hellfire64) had a look at our Glide ’n‘ Gun Wormhole.
Furthermore, the new Mix-i-Disk features Bucket Wars 1.3 – a great little strategy game by Daniel Hotop (Oziphantom) of Protovision.
The issue also mentions other Protovision titles, such as Neutron (within the RGCD C64 16KB Cartridge Game Development Competition 2019 article) as well as MW Ultra and Soul Force (in the news).
For the cover topic "Train themed games" selected guests were invited to write about their favorite train game, our very own Jakob Voos (Jak T Rip) being among them.

Earlier this month, an in-depth article about Outrage by Georg Fuchs (Lord Lotek) had been published via Lotek64 Blog. It just had one flaw: Being in German language only, its audience was limited.
We are happy to announce that an English version has recently been published on the Vandalism News website. Georg translated his article himself, while David Simmons (Jazzcat) took care of the proof reading.
Now, more people get the chance to read this fine review, next to an enlightening interview with Bernd Buchegger (Panther).
Outrage: Revenge! Finally.
Enjoy!
