Sheepoid DX / Woolly Jumper Cartridge Available! (C64)

RGCD in association with Psytronik Software are proud to present a C64 twin-pack of games coded by Richard Bayliss of The New Dimension; Sheepoid DX and Woolly Jumper are finally available to buy on cartridge from our shop!

Sheepoid DX is a specially enhanced version of TND's dual-axis Laser Zone tribute that was originally released by Psytronik in 2011. Planet Earth is under attack from Space Goats and it's your mission to wipe out the strange alien threat and save the Earth from ungulate domination!

Woolly Jumper is the full, enhanced 64K version of the game Richard originally wrote for the RGCD 16K Cartridge Compo. Poor Pepito the sheep is lost in Mindspace, and you must help him escape from this nightmare by guiding him through 16 levels guarded by Green Martians, Space Chickens and Wiggly Worms!

Sheepoid DX and Woolly Jumper are PAL only games, and have been confirmed working on the C64, C128 and C64GS (although a second joystick is required in port one to activate the smart bomb in Sheepoid DX).

The cartridge version is available in two packaging types, a standard card carton and a more expensive 'deluxe version' that comes in a plastic case (a Universal Game Case with a specially cut foam insert to hold the cartridge as shown below). The standard version is priced at £22, whereas the deluxe version costs £27. Shipping is £4 for UK/Europe and £5 for the rest of the world. A digital version of the game will also be sent out to all customers following receipt of payment.

The cover art features illustration and design by Smila and STE'86 and the game comes complete with a printed manual, and vinyl RGCD sticker. The 64KB PCB is housed in classic black cartridge shell.

Please note that Psytronik Software are also selling the game on premium/budget disk, tape and download for £9.99, £4.99, £4.99 and £1.99 respectively (plus shipping) via their Binary Zone Retro Store.
