Coming Soon from Psytronik: New C64 Game Captain Ishtar

Last Updated on June 1, 2024

I always like to see a new C64 game released, and Captain Ishtar from Psytronik looks particualrly interesting.

A four-part space adventure with detailed sprites and exciting soundtracks, this C64 game is available for original systems, emulators, and TheC64 Mini and Maxi devices.

In the far future, the Federation of Planets needs brave space pilots to patrol the spaceways of the Galaxy. And among these interstellar peacekeepers, few are as brave as Captain Ishtar of Mars…

The Federation has sent Captain Ishtar to investigate the mysterious planet Petit-4, a world never before visited by Earthlings. Ships from the hostile Nitwup Empire have been detected in the system.

Suddenly, Captain Ishtar’s starship is ambushed by the Nitwup enemy! The fight is on…

Designed by Alf Yngve (a guy who has produced many a game based on SEUCK), Captain Ishtar is available in four versions:

  • Collector’s edition: a stunning full colour printed glossy box (pictured) with the C64 game on 5.25″ floppy
  • Premium+ disk edition
  • Budget disk edition
  • Tape edition

Key game features of Captain Ishtar

  • 4-part space adventure
  • Detailed sprites & backgrounds
  • Clever visual effects
  • Exciting soundtracks
  • TheC64 Mini/Maxi compatible

Yngve has designed the game and developed the graphics and SFX. Meanwhile, this C64 game features music by Richard Bayliss, package design by Jason ‘Kenz’ Mackenzie, and tape mastering by Bayliss and Martin Piper.

Looking like a game every C64 owner (in whatever shape) should play, you can learn more on the Captain Ishtar page at Psytronik.
