Vector5Games’ “Jungle Joe” Now Available for Commodore 64
Earlier this week, Vector5Games released Jungle Joe, a brand new Commodore 64 game four decades after the system’s heyday.
For those out of the know, there is a fairly healthy C64 indie/homebrew scene. She why have I decided to to highlight Jungle Joe? One word: Alliteration!
As for Jungle Joe, it’s a puzzle-adventure game where players must build a ladder to reach the next stage. Each stage is divided into three checkpoints; to progress, you will have to solve puzzles and avoid enemies and hazards. There is also a password system so that you can continue where you left off or return to previously played stages.
If you are interested in checking it out but don’t have a working Commodore 64, the game has been tested on both real C64 hardware and the VICE emulator, and will also run in PAL and NTSC modes, but it’s not optimized for NTSC.
You can download Jungle Joe by naming your own price here. If you’re interested in checking out more of the indie homebrew games foe the Commodore 64, you can find more at the Retro Indie News website here.
