Clockwork Pixels's comments:
Hello, I've just released my new game, Citadel 1986, on the App Store. It's a retro platform game in the style of the old Commodore 64 games that got me into coding.

You can find a free 'lite' edition here : https://itunes.apple.com/app/id1079844395 : although, being the developer, I highly recommend the paid ($0.99) edition

It's been a while since I've released a new game, I hope you like it ... please let me know
George

I know, it's been at least a couple of years ... it's great to see you're still around, I've missed posting here

I've been developing stuff all this time, just not releasing it ... not entirely sure why.

Keep doing what you do, George, because it's quite evident that you can do no wrong. I remember thinking "dual stick shooter from a guy who makes puzzle games?!?" back when Darkside came out and now...we'll, you've just proven you can also nail platformers!

Great game so far. Just hit area 9 and I'm still very weirded out and confused. Just like with DISTRAINT yesterday, I'm also very invested in seeing what happens at the end of this. It's sort of like a linear metroidvania, maybe? Definitely could imagine it on a 2600. Brilliant music too.

Also, offering this at a buck is nuts man!

I'm sure I speak for everyone when I say we've missed having you around here. Also, release EVERYTHING dude. You're so damn talented.

Wait, level 9? That means you bought it ... thank you

The game's inspired by 'Son of Blagger' on the C64. It was the first time I'd seen a large scrolling world like that, and it blew me away that you could see later parts of the map from early on in the game ... so that's what I've tried to recreate. It is a linear game though, unless you mess up and fall into an earlier stage!

Music was written by my computer, so can't claim credit there. Speech is by a C64 synthesiser too, had fun with that.

Concidering everything is now free, $1 is extortionate ... ah, I remember now why I stopped releasing stuff

Thanks again,

It's an adorable non-stressful matching game experience. Of course you must love kittens. But he also has a Puppy Sanctuary game. And lite versions to try out.
