Here on Indie Retro News we do like hearing about Arcade games that have been lost and found, or more recent conversions over to systems such as the Amiga, Atari, Amstrad, C64 or ZX Spectrum. Well here we are with another fine story for all you retro gamers out there. As we have recently found out through Facebook that ‘Venture’; a game originally released in 1981 as a fantasy arcade game that later appeared on the ColecoVision and then finally the Atari 2600 and Intellivision, has been converted over to the C64 by Donnie Russell!
In this new game for the C64, you play as the character Winky, and must use your bow and arrow to dispatch a number of enemies found in each of the many rooms. Also while they are dealt with, you have to collect the treasure from each of the areas while escaping as fast as possible, and again dealing with any enemies that respawn. When that’s all done, the room is complete and is shown as a filled in texture. Complete all the rooms and it’s on to the next level!… And that’s it 🙂
