C64 Winter Challenge – Barrel Jumping.

Well with that big dumping of snow that Ms. Nature decided to drop on us here it’s all looking rather picturesque and wintry out there and a perfect <lame> excuse for a spot of winter themed retro gaming.

This time, I’m on a mission to beat a record set by a work colleague many years ago on the Barrel Jumping event in World Games on the Commodore 64.

The records stands at 18 barrels and my personnel best is 14.

I had a few more goes at 18 barrels but i’m still way short of the mark. So….whilst no one was looking, I dug out a few old Zzap64 magazines, grabbed my Action Replay cartridge and entered a few POKE cheats 🙂

This is the skateboard hack 🙂

If that doesn’t work, how about a POKE for a Dropzone jetpack?

…and if all else fails, you can always go Turrican on those pesky barrels 🙂
