We own 4thD, admits APDLBy Chris Williams. Published: 27th Jul 2004, 07:48:44 | Permalink | Printable
More old gamesMentioned in passing last week, and officially confirmed yesterday, APDL have bought The Fourth Dimension range of games from CJE. We pestered APDL last week for information on the sale, but were told to 'wait and see'. APDL also publish a range of other games.
So what's the plan for these tired old titles? APDL, of course, plans to re-release them, starting with the Value For Money collection of games first and later the 8bit "classics".
When we asked APDL if they had access to the source code to the games, the answer was a "yes-ish": we certainly hope they have as we'd be particularly pleased to see updated versions of Stunt Racer 2000, Galatic Dan, Chocks Away and others - the real games that The Fourth Dimension were famous for.
APDL website - email Dave Bradforth with comments, etc.
