Boxx is a platform game made using Backbone, a game creation system for the Amiga that requires no programming knowledge at all. In the game, your character has to collect the coins while dodging the enemies through the platforms. It is a traditional gameplay but still a lot of fun, and the stylish pixelated graphics and bright colours gave the game a very professional look. You can check it by yourself watching the video above.

The game can be downloaded following the link below, and if you want to learn how to design and create your own games with Backbone you really need to read Cammy’s tutorial over on the English Amiga Board.

8_bit_redditWe are starting a shared subreddit for Commodore is Awesome and Vintage is The New Old. We found that having an open forum like Reddit for both sites would be more attractive for all our visitors than a traditional forum.

On VITNO and CIA Reddit you can post pictures of your retro setup, share videos and links about whatever you find interesting, as long as it is related to Retro Computing and Retro Gaming, of course!

If you are not on Reddit yet, come and visit our subreddit. It is very addictive!

If you are into recycling and other eco-friendly initiatives, why not do it in style? The Future was 8-bit knows about that and it is making available a limited edition of its already well-known SD2IEC device made with recycled C64 plastic, and for only £45.99 + shipping.

On its order page, there are photos of the process. Check it out following the link below, but be aware that the scenes are very strong and gore, and not everyone can watch a beautiful C64 case getting into the grinder without throwing up or crying.
