And again I'm just amazed what some people can achieve.

Thusfar, Westbrook has gotten the controller working with the C64, and started work on the game itself earlier this year. While his initial tests were written in good old Commodore BASIC, he expects to write the final game using C and 6502 assembler language.

That is quite mad. Now for him to fully utilise the SID!

If he uses some of the good old SID classics with that I might be tempted to get hold of a guitar controller and try it!

This would also be a great idea for a proper related release on the current systems with guitar controllers.

RetroHero!

Imagine it. Play along to all your favourite retro chip tunes and Amiga mods! Would be cool.

And when you complete the game you are awarded a Geek award.

It has to be something worse than a geek award. Get a life award. Or being as Wizzball had the best SID Guitar like riff the Wizz Get Some Balls Award.

I thought Skate or Die had the best SID guitar sound, but then I never had Wizball on the 64, only the Amiga.

As Harry Hill would say, there's only one way to settle this...

Monty on the run.
Guitar instead of a violin.
Be tempted to try that.
