DO YOU REMEMBER?
Warspite is a space-bound scrolling shooter based loosely on the Thalamus classic Delta that was originally destined for a budget release, but ended up being given away through the Commodore 64 demo scene.
Destroying an entire wave of attacking enemies or a boss will change which icon in the power-up bar at the bottom of the screen is highlighted – there are three for extra speed, more bullets and a shield – and, when the desired icon is lit, a slap of the space bar activates it. These extra weapons don’t last however, so they will need the occasional top up to keep them active.
More information about Warspite’s history and a download can be found at Games That Weren’t behind Kikstart.eu/ warspite-c64 – please note that there’s some harsh language in the game’s trainer menu.
