This video is of Aleksi Eeben's Redrunner and Greenrunner running on the 8-Bit, 1Mhz Commodore 64C. This is the 64KB cartridge version that was created by Aleksi with the two games updated and fixed for PAL/NTSC. The Retroskoi+ synth features more presets and a wider keyboard range to the original, and is exclusive to this cartridge.
"THIS IS THE VOICE OF THE GREENRUNNER..."
Released back in 2006 at the Game Over(view) Freestyle Jam, Greenrunner literally blew the competition away with it's frantic arcade gameplay and amazing mix of sampled speech and high quality soundtrack. It's a game so hardcore and visually intense that it's probable that even Jeff Minter would beg for mercy at the thought of having to beat all 100 levels.
Grab a friend (or take on the challenge solo), jump into your Cyanitizer and Yellowizer battle craft, buckle up and warm up the four-directional bug-blasting pesticide cannons. This is going to be one hell of a trip.
"THIS IS THE VOICE OF THE REDRUNNER..."
One year on, the bugs are back, and this time they are in full colour! Improving on the high-res character based graphics of the original, 2007's Redrunner challenges the player with an all new and improved 100 waves of chaos. Lock 'n' load!
Greenrunner, Redrunner and Retroskoi+ are NTSC and PAL compatible, and the game menu joystick control means that the two games are even playable on the Commodore 64 GS console. The box was illustrated by Miha Rinne, and the 64KB PCB is housed in a clear cartridge shell illuminated by an internal flashing green and red LED, complete with a printed manual and Retroskoi+ reference sheet.
The cartridge will be available to buy from rgcd.co.uk in mid July 2012.
RRP £25/26 including Europe/Worldwide postage.
The games will also be available together on disk or tape from psytronik.net/ - with the tape, disk and premium disk versions costing £4.99/£4.99/£9.99 respectively, plus postage.
Retroskoi+ will be cartridge exclusive and not available in other formats.
