Upcoming Commodore 64 Homebrew 'Darkness' Heads To Apple iOS & Android Devices Early

Commodore-64-Homebrew-Darkness-On-iOS-and-AndroidEarlier this year a hard working Commodore 64 homebrew developer announced an all new title in the same vein as the ZX Spectrum's Sabre Wulf. Darkness is getting closer and closer to being released on the C64, however, in the meantime the developers have decided to test the modern gaming waters a bit by releasing the upcoming hit on iOS and Android devices.

Very much like Sabre Wulf, Darkness is a top down 8-way jungle explorer with countless traps, enemies and secrets to tackle. The game's presentation is incredibly slick by Commodore 64 standards and features a catchy soundtrack to boot.

The iOS and Android version of the game, we're assuming, uses a Commodore 64 emulator and features touchscreen controls overlaid over the action. While this might be a nice way for those without the classic computer at the ready to enjoy this new release, we're instead eagerly awaiting the upcoming arrival of Darkness on the Commodore 64 from Psytronik Software.
