The Mojon Twins, 2007-13
Following on from last year's authorised C64 cartridge release of UWOL: Quest For Money, RGCD is back with a compilation of two more Mojon Twins game conversions coded by Woodmaster - the classic run 'n jump collect 'em up 'Sir Ababol' and mind-bending platform-puzzler 'Nanako in Classic Japanese Monster Castle'.
Classic Japanese Monster Castle is the story of Nanako, who is on a quest to rescue her witch apprentice sister Mya from the Heún Tower. Mya had disobeyed her mentor's orders and broke all the palace rules in order to visit the Heún Tower - as she wanted to improve her knowledge of dark magic. Now it is up to Nanako to rescue her sister and avoid the army of Karakasas that stand in her way.
In Sir Ababol, an unfortunate happenstance has left our hero without his sword. The only way for him to retrieve his beloved blade is to collect wild poppies, scattered throughout the varois screens in this arcade adventure. There is questing to be done, and it is up to you, Sir Ababol, to do it!
Sir Ababol and Nanako In Classic Japanese Monster Castle have both been tested on both PAL and NTSC machines, and they work on the C64, C128 and C64GS (there is no keyboard input required to play). Although the games run on NTSC hardware, they do play fractionally faster. As such, the games are labelled as NTSC compatible, but designed for PAL systems. SID 8580 recommended. Visit RGCD for more information on the games, screenshots, videos and downloads.
The standard cartridge version is packaged in a cardboard carton, whereas the deluxe version uses a modified plastic Universal Game Case.
The box design was created by Kenz (of Psytronik Software) and the game comes complete with a printed manual and a vinyl Mojon Twins sticker. The 64KB PCB is housed in a transparent purple cartridge shell illuminated by an internal LED. The full game is also available for free download from the game's page at RGCD.
Please note that Pystronik Software are also selling the game on premium/budget disk and tape for £9.99/£4.99 and £3.99 respectively (plus shipping) via their Binary Zone Retro Store.
The Psytronik version is a compilation of Sir Ababol, Nanako in Classic Japanese Monster Castle and UWOL: Quest for Money. UWOL: Quest for Money is also available separately on cartridge from RGCD.
