Retro Blitz

TCKSOFT
NEWS: Retro Blitz is the "Remake of the Month" in GamesTM magazine in the UK this month. Many thanks!

You don't have the fuel to reach the airport and you have the unenviable task of bombing the city flat to make your own landing strip. Luckily you were able to radio for help and the city has been evacuated. Can you save the day (and your own hide) by destroying everything below, before your altitude drops too low?

These days many games claim to be "retro" or "retro inspired" but many of them are not truly retro.

Retro Blitz is the true retro experience.

Features:-

Blocky movement.
Low resolution screen.
Single colour UDG style graphics.
Genuine 8-bit sound effects.

If you had an computer in the 1980s you are sure to recognise this game - in fact you may have typed something very similar in from a magazine using your very own fingers.

Now you can carry a taste of that long gone golden age with you in your pocket where-ever you go.

IMPORTANT: I have been notified that on some handsets graphics do not appear, or the game is locked into portrait mode. This will be fixed soon. I am waiting on an update to the software I used to create this game. Please be patient. Thank you.

Hunt The Wumpus

TCKSOFT
TCKSOFT Retro Series #6 - Hunt The Wumpus.
Original version C 1980 Kevin Kenney, this version is C 2013 Andrew Pointon

Enter the caves of the Wumpus with your single arrow and try to track him down and fire it into his heart.

Avoid troublesome bats who will carry you away.

Try not to stumble into the lair of the Wumpus, or fall into a bottomless pits of slime.

Why are you even hunting the dreaded Wumpus? The elders say he has stalked your village in the past, but it has not been in your life time. Is it a right of passage or do they want rid of you, like all those who have been sent on this mission in the past?

You think too much and maybe they feel your are a challenge to their power and their ways? Come back victorious and maybe you can change things for your people for the better. No more blindly following in line when you know there you can improve everyone's lives.

Jumping Jack

TCKSOFT
Jumping Jack is quick and bold.
With skill his story will unfold.

TCKSOFT Retro Series #2: Jumping Jack

If you had a ZX Spectrum 16K then you probably remember this game as there were not a whole lot of games for this machine, they were mostly for its big brother with its whopping 48K of memory.

One of the original jumping games - before those Doodles were a twinkle in the author's eye.

Features: BEEP style sound effects, single colour graphics, 80s style addictive gameplay.

Doesn't Feature: Colour clash. :(

SHOGUN

TCKSOFT
Played on a 8x8 Chess/Checkers style board, SHOGUN is different as there is hidden "terrain" values on each position that determine how far a piece can move from that spot.

Try to capture the opponent's pawns and SHOGUN while keeping yours safe. The game is over when a player has his SHOGUN captured, or is left with only one pawn in addition to his SHOGUN piece.

One or two player options plus you can choose to show your possible valid moves, or display all the hidden terrain - these options are given for people new to the game to get a hang of how to play. It's recommended to have these options disabled unless you need them.

Play two players with your phone or tablet lying flat between you for the ultimate board-game experience.

Mined-Out!

TCKSOFT
TCKSOFT Retro Series #5 - Mined-Out!

Original game created by Ian Andrew – www.OriginalGames.com

Have you ever played Minesweeper? I'm sure you have. What you probably didn't know is that it has a granddad, and that granddad is called Mined-Out!, and was originally released way back in 1983 when Windows 1.0 was still just a twinkle in Bill Gates's eye.

Bill the worm is trapped at the end of a series of increasingly troublesome mine fields, and you need to navigate your way to him before he dies of old age. He has been waiting for 30 years for you already, so you better get a move on or he will be a gonner for sure!

Popping Candy

TCKSOFT
WARNING: A TABLET IS *HIGHLY RECOMMENDED* (Or very slender fingers...)

How to play:

Tap on groups of candy to eat them - the more candy you eat in one go the better as you will score many more points.

Eating a single candy makes you sad (you lose 1000 points).

Stop the candy reaching the red score bar, or your game will end.

If you eat candy at the right time you will score even more points. Watch the pulsing colour of the screen.

The game will speed up over time so put down your tablet and eat with both hands to survive!

Solar Trex

TCKSOFT
TCKSOFT Retro Series #3: Solar Trex.

Go back in time to the arcades of the '80s and fight for high-scores in this intense action game.

Collect all the fuel crystals in each sector while avoiding mines, and the relentless attack of the perimeter security drones, who fire at you and will not stop or rest until you have been destroyed.

Your ship has no brakes and all you can do to avoid destruction is turn left or right, or use your booster so speed from enemy shots (and disaster) even more quickly.

Picking up crystals in quick succession will give score bonuses and if you complete a sector without losing any shields the rewards are great.

An extra shield is awarded after each five sectors have been completed. If you lose them all then it is game over and your ship will spiral to its doom.

Insert a credit (Buy it!) to play right now and feel the joy of the arcades again.

Duck Dash

TCKSOFT
TCKSOFT Retro Series #4 - Duck Dash

This is a remake of my PC remake of the original Atari ST game by John Gymer of Kingfisher Software and was originally seen many many moons ago on a magazine cover disk, back when the world was a little more innocent.

It's spring so lets go egg collecting! Mr Duck has lost his eggs and must get them all back before Mrs Duck comes home and makes him sleep in the swamp rather than their comfy nest. They are scattered on the fragile tiles of doom and guarded by nasties and sticky spider webs.

Luckily the god of all ducks is feeling merciful and sends Mr Duck some power ups and extra lives from time to time to help in his thankless quest.

Touch and drag your finger to move Mr Duck.

Once you have stepped on a tile it is broken and cannot be stepped on again - don't worry about being trapped though because Mr Duck is magical and can shift a row or column of tiles to escape such a predicament (by using the button in the bottom right of the screen while moving.

Metal Pangic

TCKSOFT
Metal Panic is in a genre to itself:- The Bubble-Hell Shooter.

Metal Pangic is copyright TCKSOFT 2013 (original version created on the PC and is copyright TCKSOFT 2002).

Controls: touch the bottom-left of the screen to move your ship. There are two fire buttons on the right hand side of the screen. Tap the lower button to fire your weapon and destroy the bubbles - the upper button toggles 'bullet-time', which slows down all the bubbles on the screen.

How to play: Shoot the metallic bubbles, and don't let them hit the cockpit of your ship. There are three types of bubble: Copper is a normal bubble that bounces left and right, and is effected by gravity. Silver doesn't let gravity get him down and he bounces off all four sides of the screen, in straight lines. Goldie finds you attractive and will bounce towards your ship so be very careful of this bubble stalking you.

Power-ups can increase your bullet supply so that you can fire up to 5 shots at once, but if you hit a B- ball you will lose a bullet. Also there are power ups that freeze the bubbles, evaporate the bubbles removing the smallest ones, replenish your bullet-time, and activate your sheild.

Be careful of the EX ball which will increase the size of all bubbles on the screen - it will also remove the largest, but this is still a dangerous object. The last power ball is the IB which makes all bubbles invunerable for a short time, and is another one to avoid.

Thank you for playing and I hope you enjoy the game...
