Juiced.GS covers the state of Apple II development, with new hardware and software being released regularly. The latest product to cross our desk is Retro Fever, an action game from Brandon Bogle and Brian Picchi, the latter of whom is a familiar name to Apple II gamers. In recent years, Picchi has taught himself a variety of programming languages, applying those newfound skills to games such as Applesoft Action, Deadly Orbs, and Lamb Chops!
In the March 2014 issue of Juiced.GS, Picchi will offer a behind-the-scenes look at his ascent as a programmer and the challenges he’s encountered when developing the above titles. In the meantime, Juiced.GS editor-in-chief Ken Gagne has picked up a copy of Retro Fever on 5.25″ floppy disk. Just as he did last year with Zéphyr, he’s shot a video of his unboxing and first play of Retro Fever:
Retro Fever can be purchased on floppy disk, downloaded as a disk image, or played in your web browser.
