Here we go... a new, commercial game for the Commodore 128! It is Attack of the PETSCII Robots! Released earlier for the C64, VIC-20, and PET, the C128 version makes use of the C128's extra memory space, uses burst load with a 1571 or 1581 drive, makes use of the full C128 keyboard, and has dual monitor mode (map screen in 80-columns at the same time as main screen in 40-columns). Priced from $10 to $50 US (options from digital download to autographed box with physical disks), Attack of the PETSCII Robots C128 is available at

Merry Christmas!

@Audience

Attack of the PETSCII Robots is really nice on older 8-Bot computer with PETSCII or free definable tile GFX.

Taking advantage of other hardware on other system is one of the important details on other PETSCII versions (Hires Map on C128, Sprites on C64)

And there is a version for the Amiga, that's looking as good as a lot of those late area ECS games:
