THE MSX CLASSIC NOW AVAILABLE FOR THE C64!
The idea of HYPER VIPER is to move around the maze and gobble up the snakes that are lurking in there by attacking them from behind. If you munch a snake in the middle it will split into two parts and if you get eaten by a snake you will lose a life. As well the snakes the mazes are also inhabited by egg-layers. These lay eggs that eventually hatch into blue meanies that will pursue your player. Some tasty pieces of fruit will also appear in the mazes which you can nom for extra points.

Many of us remember the old days of gaming with the likes of the Atari 2600 console, and later the Commodore 64. You also had the classics in the arcades such as Space Invaders and Asteroids which also found their way onto home systems. Luckily over recent times these old classic retro games have found a new lease of life, and enjoyed by people who remember them as well as getting new fans. Many retro style games are now finding their way onto smartphones to be played anywhere.
Retro electronics are cool, but usually don’t have much to offer in terms of modern day technologies. Well aware of this, Commodore USA will start shipping their modern day Commodore 64 replicas next week.
On the surface, the Commodore 64 shares the same PC-in-a-keyboard physique that it did when it was originally released. Inside, however, the hardware is all new. While the bottom end $250 model is built for basic functionality, the top-end $895 C64x Ultimate version will come equipped with an Intel Atom D525 1.8GHz Dual-Core processor, NVIDIA ION2 GPU, 4GBs of memory, Wi-Fi support, Blu-ray drive, a 1TB hard drive, and 1080p output via HDMI.
