I hate this game so much! 🙂 Phobia is one of the most difficult and unfair side-scrolling shooters ever made, and the surprising thing is: it’s a Tony Crowther game. I expected more from such a talented coder…
Bombuzal is a critically-acclaimed puzzle game designed/coded by Tony Crowther and David Bishop and published by Image Works in 1988.
In it you play a small, green blob whose job it is to dispose of all the bombs on a level. To explode a bomb you must be standing on top of it and hold down fire, and – once triggered – you can then walk away from it in whatever directions are available.
Out On A Limb is a Jack and the Beanstalk-inspired platform game published by Anirog Software in 1984.
It is probably best known on the Commodore 64, but a Commodore 16 version also exists and it is fondly-remembered by fans.
An original C16/Plus4 release from Players Software, first published in 1987, Auto Zone is a side-scrolling, car-driving platform game where you drive a small buggy from right to left across four different stages, trying to survive to the end.
Shaun Southern‘s Trailblazer – I’m reliably informed – originated on the Commodore 16; not the Commodore 64 (on which it is probably better-known).
Written by Mark J. Moore and published by Gremlin Graphics in 1985, Rescue From Zylon I would say is one of the best games ever released for the Commodore 16.
