A few of you here may recall that for a period of around 8 years I used to be a commercial games programmer, mainly on Ye Olde' Commodore 64. Among some of the games I wrote, the last ever production was Reckless Rufus, which I also designed and half-created the graphics for as well. That was 17 years ago, back in 1992. It was ported over to the Spectrum, and also the Amstrad CPC. If you are bored enough to want to take a peek, you can download it from HERE. You will need a C64 emulator to play it, and that can be got HERE. Don't get too excited, it's very mediocre stuff Smile

The reason I'm posting this message is because long after my royalties dried up, the software house (Alternative Software) sold some of the rights to a Polish software company. The info I have on them is as follows:

Atrax S.C.
02-959 Warszawa, ul.
Biedronki 93
Tel: (022) 756 90 25

Here's a scan of the only advertising I have ever seen for the "Zestaw" series: Advert Part 1 - Advert Part 2

The company has long since been out of business, however, they released a cartridge version of my game (Zestaw #4) and I have been trying to track down a copy for quite a few years now, with no luck. If there are any avid retro game collectors out there reading this who may either have this particular cartridge, or know where I might be able to track it down, please do PM me.

Shiver, I wish I still had my C64 and all its games, but my father-in-law is an avid Commodore collector, and he may be able to track it down for me. I'll drop him a note and let you know what he says.

I'll send you a PM...if I don't have that I might have other things you would like.

PS: How did that silly avatar get to be mine? Must be the default if you don't have one now.

My son, Bart Simpson (please don't tell Homer) is heavily into old games. He's cheking into it and will let you know if he finds anything out. Springfield is a much more complex society that what appears on our show.

they may be able to help you locate the game, some of the members there are avid gamers and have an extensive library of both roms and cartridges etc...

Laughing how am I suppose to play this? I keep going on the other blocks but it's killing me for no reason.. help! Smile

this game is hard, but I kinda understand it.. [4] blocks you can't go over to another block.. 1-3 (number of boxes you can move), 5 (not sure).. blank boxes..no moves. It's pretty fun, but hard.

@ Radden: Damn, you're playing on a small screen! Go into options and tick "Double Size" Smile
@ MC: Thanks for trying!
@ Bella: I have the tape and disc version. I'm looking for the cartridge version.

If you need instructions, PM me and I'll send you a scan of the inlays.

Most of my work was in-house collaborative stuff on about 20 titles. I had three "just me!" releases. I'll PM you the titles later Smile

The CCS64 emulator plays on a bigger screen Laughing..

If you have your other titles on your computer (like the one you posted) lemme know and I'll test them out Smile. So far I beat the "first part" of your game and got the code to go to the second part. It's a pretty fun game, I am actually pretty addicted to it (as long as those codes are on Laughing)

It might be worth posting a "Wanted to Buy" in the "Supermarket" section of Lemon64 forums: http://www.lemon64.com/ (I note the C64 woodcarving has recently shown itself there again too! Smile )
