SEUCK compo is back and this time even better. Last time in 2011, the aim of the compo was to create a high quality sideways SEUCK using Jon Well’s “Sideways SEUCK” mod. However, this time round, it is a SEUCK competition in which to make a quality SEUCK game using a chosen version of SEUCK. It can be vertical or horizontal.
2011’s Sideways SEUCK compo winner was of course Alf Yngve’s amazing creation “Forgotten Forest“, a game using the mode and style of Cosmi’s ultimate classic … ‘Beyond the Forbidden Forest”. This game got remastered with a new front end with music, and was added to a Psytronik Software compilation, “The Shoot Em Up Destruction Set #2” :-)
The aim of this competition is to create your very own shoot ’em up / or whatever type of game you want using the normal SEUCK, or the Sideways Shoot Em Up Construction kit. (Visit the official Sideways scrolling SEUCK web site for the Sideways SEUCK. The vertical scrolling SEUCK for C64 is easy to find to buy from EBAY as tape or disk.
Picking a winner
Like with the 2011 Sideways SEUCK compo. TND will be building an online vote sheet and the winner will be the game that scores the most points.
The winner of the SEUCK competition 2013 will receive a special prize. The prize will be an enhanced version of your game with additional add ons, such as suitable power ups, new front end, end screen, a hi-score table, plenty of music. TND will also prepare a loading picture, cover design/rendering and of course a special tape master for the production.
