Dinamic Software was a Spanish video games producer and publisher company. It was founded in 1983, and its activity ceased in 1992, comprising the Golden Era of Spanish Software. One year later, a part of its owners founded an independent company named Dinamic Multimedia. At the end of the 1980s, another company, Aventuras AD destined to produce text adventures, was born from Dinamic Software.

During the Golden age of Spanish software, Dinamic distributed their own games in Spain, as well as the ones by Aventuras AD and other minor companies, becoming a rival to Erbe Software in this work. However, with the change of decade, and the migration to 16 bit platforms, sale figures started declining. After launching Narco Police (1991), they became unable to distribute anymore their titles.

Their last title, Risky Woods, could be released, exclusively for 16 bit platforms, thanks to co-production with Zeus Software, and distribution by Electronic Arts, since Dinamic Software was already immerse in an economical crisis that would lead to their closedown in bankruptcy in 1992. One year later, the Ruiz brothers, with Carlos Abril (one of the designers of Panthis) and the owner of HobbyPress, Jos Ignacio Gmez-Centurin, would create a new company, which was named Dinamic Multimedia in honor of the defunct company, but would only be owned 30% by the Ruiz Brothers.

Flimbos Quest Coming to Atari XL/XE

One of the C64’s best-loved platform games, Flimbo’s Quest, is coming to to Atari’s 8-bit line of XL/XE computers, thanks to the efforts of New Generation!

The original C64 version was developed by Boys Without Brains and published by System 3 back in 1990. Thanks to excellent artwork, music and engaging gameplay, it was one of the best side-scrolling platformers for the system, as well as receiving conversions for the Amiga and ill-fated C64GS console.

The Atari conversion began life as an entry for the Sillyventure 2018 games development competition, and while the alpha build is far from feature-complete, the developers have stated that the final release will include all the levels, enemies and mechanics from the C64.

The completed version of the game is expected to run on an Atari 130XE equipped with 256 Kb memory, or a stock Atari XL/XE.

The alpha version available to download and try for yourselves.05 November 2018

Atari Retro Handheld Console Available to Pre-order

After a series of delays, Pqube has made it’s new, portable Atari “Retro” console available for potential customers to pre-order.

Boasting the familiar “immortalised” wood grain trim of the iconic 2600 VCS, the unit includes a library of 50 classic games, including the likes of Centipede, Missile Command and Breakout.

The console features a 2.4″ display, headphone jack, a retro volume control, plus an A/V connector that we assume will allow the unit to be hooked up to a TV or other display; Atari hasn’t included any technical details regarding the output, but it’s not HDMI (looks similar to a 3.5mm headphone jack).

The unit is powered by 3 x AAA batteries (not included), although there’s no mention of how long these are meant to last before needing to be replaced. In terms of price, the unit is listed on Funstock Retro and Amazon web stores for £34.99.22 October 2018
