Once again there’s another C64 game that’s well worth a mention, as thanks to Jon Eggelton and Saberman letting us know through our Indie Retro News Facebook group, we’ve been told that Jon Eggelton and Gianluca Alberico is not only still working on a new game for the C64 called ‘SNK vs CAPCOM’, which is using their RetroFighter game engine. But as of today you can see some new footage of the game in action, and there’s a new demo for you to play as well all linked below.
Unlike before when we said that Retro Fighter is a new work in progress C64 versus fighting engine with new features implemented such as a new UI and colour selection for each player, intro sequences before the battle commences for each player, flaming hits and projectiles, special moves, and different battle arenas. What has changed since the first shout out is…. The game is not only called SNK vs CAPCOM, but you can play with 3 new fighters, fight in 2 new bonus rounds, there’s a new tourney mode, new graphic effects and special moves, one and two buttons configurations and there’s new intermission screens too! – Next release will hopefully include good music and sound effects.
