New bootblock virus found
Posted by Jan-VHT - 22 December 2020 20:16
Jan-VHT's Avatar  Hi all...

A new bootblock virus have been found on an .adf archive containing a game called 'Apple Catcher', we are not 100% sure of the name of the archive.

After booting the virus changes the CoolCapture-Vector to stay resident in memory at ($000058DC). Then the virus patches the DoIO ($000059B6) Vector to infect other disks.

The checksum of the bootblock changes with each mutation, so that means that there could be a lot of mutations out there. So please take care.

You can read the test of 'Game Over' bootblock virus at the Virus Help Team website. Link: https://www.vht-dk.dk/amiga/desc/txt/gameover.htm

Picture of the 'Game Over' virus:


Thanx to CrashDisk for his testing of this virus as well...


Kind Regards

Santa Run - New Xmas Game
Posted by mcgeezer - 20 December 2020 11:36
If you've been in the Game Factory recently you'll know that I've been creating a new xmas game for the Amiga AGA over the last 7 days.

Last night the game was finished and so you can download it now via my itch page.

https://mcgeezer.itch.io/santa-run-2020

Here's a video link...

https://youtu.be/NVU55m6p1KI


Instructions....

GAME PLAY

Santa Run is a free Christmas game that was created in seven days for all Commodore Amiga fans.

Control Santa as you leap from roof to roof and deliver presents down the chimneys.

Santa Run is a score based game, if you reach the end of the street you will have completed the game. A nice greeting awaits at the end of the game.

REQUIREMENTS

Commodore Amiga A1200 or above, real hardware or emulated. The game comes on an ADF but the files can be copied to run from Workbench. The game requires a joystick or control pad in port 2 of your Amiga if running on real hardware.

HOW TO PLAY

Starting the Game

In the Title screen you can push Left for easy mode and Right for hard mode.

Easy mode you will be given 150 gifts to throw into the chimneys and 10 special Elf jumps.
Hard mode you will be given 100 gifts and only 5 special Elf Jumps. In hard mode you get more points for reaching further into the game.
Controls

Push Fire button to leap from one roof to another. You can jump when not on a roof but doing so will use up a special Elf jump. Use Elf jumps sparingly to avoid not landing on a roof.

Push Left and Right to throw gifts into the chimneys.

You can building score multipliers by chaining gifts in to the chimneys without missing.

DONATIONS

Any monetary donations will be split between the developers evenly.

CREDITS

Coding: mcgeezer

Pixels: Ten Shu

Audio/SFX: DJ Metune

Look out for more great games from Double Sided Games in 2021.

Merry Xmas everyone and please enjoy the game.

FileMaster 2.2 free version now available
Posted by Jope - 08 December 2020 09:49
Jope's Avatar  http://aminet.net/package/util/dir/FileMaster2.2

Great for 1.3/floppy setups! Works with a high end machine too.

One of the best file managers of the early 90s, yet it wasn't as well known as it would have deserved.

Here it is, give it a go.

There is one caveat in 2020: it will crash if you have a filename longer than 32 characters in your directory. Not useful if you insist on browsing TOSEC with it. Still very useful for other things. :-)

New Game - Astro Blox Revisited
Posted by juen - 26 November 2020 12:13
Astro Blox Revisited

Code: Pawel Juen Nowak
Graphics: Zbigniew PPILL Pozoga
Music: Jakub Aceman Szelag

A variation of the Sokoban style game with new logic elements. The game was first presented in the GAME DEV competition organized at DECRUNCH 2020, where it took first place.

The game finally offers 34 different stages. The ability to perform movements with a joystick or keyboard. Works on any classic Amiga with 512kb CHIP memory (stock A500).

Keys during the game: R - restart a stage, ESC - return to the menu, ARROWS - move.

In the box, in addition to the instructions in the form of a poster, there is a DD floppy disk and a bootable CD.

The game was tested on the A500, A1000, A2000, A1200, CDTV and CD32. Additional extensions (like V2, TF, 060) shouldn't be a problem. It was written in assembly language.

The game will be made available for free this year.
