Game Review

Eye of the Beholder C64/128 is an incredible unofficial conversion for the Commodore 64 and 128 of the famous dungeon crawler Eye of the Beholder.

The original RPG Eye of the Beholder was released in 1991 for the Amiga and MS-DOS. The masterpiece created by Westwood Associates was never ported to the Commodore 64, but a group of enthusiasts led by Andreas (JackAsser) Larsson succeeded where the original developers failed. The result is astonishing, so good you won't miss the 16-bit versions.

The first attempts to port the game to C64 started in 2006, but due to the complexity, it was dropped in 2009. Some years later, in 2018, after having ported the game to iOS, Andreas decided to retry with the C64 version. Ilesj, Mirage, and Oliver Lindau helped with the graphics. It took four years to finish the game: in November 2022, Eye of the Beholder C64 was ready and an absolute marvel. The mechanics have been replicated perfectly; the graphics are the best you have ever seen on a C64 game; the SID music written by Sascha Zeidler is also excellent.

The game is fully compatible with the Commodore 128, and if the more powerful processor is recognized, you can activate the turbo mode. On C128, you also have a secondary screen with the automap. Incredible!

We created a wrapper that includes the C128 emulator so that you can play the best version of this game. Don't forget to support the author on his website . A Kickstarter to create a boxed version is on its way.

    A fantastic work. I was moved to tears as I discovered this game some weeks ago and played it several hours in a mood I hardly can explain. This is a 100% job in my opinion, there was/is nothing more terrific in my life as a gamer since the 80's in the very last century!
