F15 D’Gamma Clone (C64) released

Woohoo, I survived another year! F15 D’Gamma Clone is a C64 conversion of the 2016 C64CD release of the same name on the Apple II, with some fairly serious modifications to keep the memory footprint down and add a brutal conversion of Ben Daglish’s music from the 16-bit game 3D Galax by aNdy.

The most significant change is that the C64 version is using characters – under 3.5K in total for the screen and font data – compared to 8K of bitmap data for the Apple II original; it would have been possible to get that code running directly on the C64 but there was no way it would fit into the ICC‘s 16K memory footprint with the extra colour data and music.
