    Really fun and straightforward to understand RTS game. Great fun. Amazing what was done on a C64. Fun and good replay value.

    I didn’t buy the game because I don’t have a comodore 64. It looks cool though and I hope it sells well.

    It’s great to see a new Commodore 64 game in 2017. Shipping was very fast.

    unfortunately this game is way to expensive for customers like me in Australia. Due to the poor Australian dollar this game is way over $100 and i just cant afford to throw that sort of money at a game let alone a commodore 64 game. As much as i would love to play this game for free i hope it does not get uploaded and pirated as you certainly have put a lot of hard work into this game.

    If you like C&C or Starcraft style games, then PlanetX2 is definitely the game for you. This game is an instant C64 classic!

    Awesome box, amazing manual and fun game. I played it in an emulator but I can’t wait to get my hands on a c64 so I can fire it up for real. I also really enjoyed the cassette soundtrack. Looking forward to Planet X3.

    Any chance this would fit on a cassette tape?

    • The 8Bit Guy

      Yes, it would fit. But it would also require re-writing bits of the code in order to be able to handle working from a cassette.

    I usually prefer a turn-based strategy game over RTS, but this game has already taken hours from me and I have only played the first two maps on “easy.” 10 maps will last me quite a while, and for $20 plus shipping this is an amazing game! I look forward to Planet X3 when it comes out.

    This has been hours of fun. Feels like a game made by a gamer, or at least someone who really understands what makes a high quality game – the content is great and the play is really well thought out. It even made a C64 gamer of my teenage son!

    This is an awesomely well crafted game; fun to play too. Even better, it runs smoothly and flawlessly on my C64C. Guess I will be spending more time on my Commodore 64 than my XBox One.

    SO GOOD!

    Great Game! Almost better than some games I have played on Xbox One and PS4 consoles!
