Link: Beyond The Scanlines: Magnetron

Rob over at Beyond The Scanlines is taking a look at Magnetron on the C64 this week.

I am still a huge fan of both Quazatron and Magnetron in their Speccy incarnations, though for reasons I can’t fathom now I couldn’t really remember anything about Magnetron on the breadbin. I surely must have played it, I’ve just got a terrible memory. Thankfully other people are here to remind me to go and sort that out.

Anyway. This isn’t that Magnetron, just to confuse matters. Instead it’s a Broderbund title of the same name. An evolution of a Mac game that comes complete with a level editor allowing you to stitch together your own missions.

It’s an interesting little game and really I’m impressed with how useable (if apparently time consuming) the level editor appears to be.

Rob has a Patreon if you enjoy their work.
