Runn ‘n Gunn, A New Upcoming Platformer by Carleton Handley

The Commodore 64 games just keep coming! Here's a little post about a new game titled Runn 'n Gunn. Carleton Handley's new platformer is looking fantastic. This little dude reminds me of Rick Dangerous with his large quiff. The character instantly comes to life with it's bouncing animation depicting heavy breathing, probably due to all that running.

As the title suggests you run and shoot enemies as you progress through each level, while avoiding obstacles in your path. The obstacles have a very Mario Bros. feel to them, following a rotating path around each platform. I'm sure there will be a lot more added to Runn 'n Gunn as the games coding progresses, what we are seeing here are early stages, but wow it's looking sharp! The last video Carleton shared on Twitter shows mid-stage checkpoints, more new graphics by
 Saul Cross and an awesome SID tune with SFX. Certainly one to keep an eye on.
