"Officially licensed" Commodore jerseys on Amazon
On Amazon, "Score Draw" offers retro jerseys of German soccer clubs, among others also red and white jerseys with "Commodore" logo. In contrast to jerseys of other teams, these are not complete copies of the original jerseys: on the "official Commodore retro jerseys from 1986" (product description of the producer) the logo and the name of the corresponding club are missing - the FC Bayern M├╝nchen is not mentioned even in the article description.

Obviously the license for the brand of the Munich team would have been to expensive - since Score Draw does promoting his article as "officially licensed" it is probable that he reached an agreement with the owner of the Commodore brand rights. What the original Bayern jersey looked like you can see on the website of the Trikot-Museum. (cg) (Translation: dr)

Game: Reshoot R released
Press release: Bombs away for Reshoot R - Modern action for the retro platform Amiga

PŘrge/▄bersee, May 28th, 2019: The development studio spieleschreiber and the publisher APC&TCP today announce the availability of the retro action game Reshoot R.

After almost three years of development, Reshoot R finally lights up its laser cannons - as you'd expect, for original Amiga hardware. The horizontal scrolling shoot'em up, in the style of classics like "R-Type", throws the player into an exciting space battle. In five elaborately designed themed worlds, fighter pilots fight side-by-side with the courageous space heroine Aryn against the attacks of the evil Tars species.

The action remains faithful to arcade traditions to combine elaborate high-end visuals with high-speed, demanding challenges. Fast gameplay, breathless dynamics, and exciting tension peaks characterise the fight between the heroine and the ballet of attack waves. Extra weapons and power-ups support her in her fight for survival. If your battle is fought successfully, eternal glory awaits you in the automatically saved highscore list. In addition, there is a premiere for Amiga action games: Those pilots can enter their performance on an internet ranking website and so they can compare their skills against those of other gamers.

Reshoot R is initially available as three seperate releases: Download Edition, Pure Edition and Signature Edition. The Pure Edition includes the game on CD-ROM and a printed manual. The Signature Edition has the game on CD-ROM, with a printed manual including a making-of special and the soundtrack on a separate audio CD. The audio CD soundtrack is also available separately.

All Amiga products are now available in the online shop of APC&TCP. Any specialist dealers who want to offer Reshoot R directly to their customers may contact APC&TCP by e-mail for details.
