"Port Taipan to Commodore 64 Bounty" completed!
« on: January 20, 2011, 02:51:13 AM »
Taipan was a very popular game for the Apple II which never had a proper release on the Commodore 64. A bounty for the port has been completed and the game is available for download. A lot of people scoffed at the idea such a simple concept for a game could be fun, but as people try out the Commodore 64 port they realize why it was so popular on the Apple II. Supposedly Taipan on the Apple II was one of WOZ's favorite games.

This is the 3rd completed bounty for Commodore Bounty and the first game port bounty. What should be next? Maybe an open clone of some CMD hardware?

Heh, I wasnt aware of c64 bounties. Being that the c64 is my 2nd favorite machine it's good to see this sort of thing. I'll definately be keeping an eye on that site from now on  :)
It's a shame I wasnt aware of the Taipain bounty, I wouldve taken it up myself. I guess I could do an Amiga version just for kicks.

Near as I can tell this is where I write something under the guise of being innocuous, but really its a pot shot at another persons/peoples choice of Amiga based systems. Unfortunately only I cant see how transparent and petty it makes me look.

Now for a port to the Atari 8-bit. ;)
