- Today PlayStation 3 developer mc_
has released a PS3 homebrew game dubbed FreeDroid Classic, which is a clone of the game "Paradroid" which was released on Commodore 64 in 1985.
In this game, you control a robot located within an interstellar spaceship consisting of several decks connected by elevators.
The aim of the game is to destroy all enemy robots by either shooting them or seizing control over them by creating connections in a short subgame of electric circuits.
To quote: "I've been working for a while on porting Freedroid Classic to SDL_PSL1GHT, and now
I think it works well enough to release some packages.
Freedroid is an open-source port of Andrew Braybrook's brillant C64 game Paradroid. This is the "Classic" variant, which actually plays like the original, not the "RPG" which is like a completely different game."
