30 years ago, Sensible Software unleashed SEUCK (Shoot-em-up Construction Kit) onto the world. Nothing so ambitious had ever been attempted. Previously computer game creation was restricted to those able to grasp the complicated nuances of registry pushing in assembly language, or willing to cope with the massive restrictions of a cumbersome C64 BASIC, or much simpler text adventures using GAC (Graphic Adventure Creator) released a little over a year earlier.
For the last few months the Spanish SEUCK Compo has been running, to celebrate SEUCK’s 30th anniversary. And I’ve taken a look at all of the C64 entries, which you can also download for yourself in the download links on the compo page.
