This was my favourite game when I was a kid. So it made my day to find this page. If I had told my friends from primary school back then, I'll finally find the guy atop of the Highscore list, no one would have believed me. Of course I had to download and play this masterpice of a game immediately. It's been 30 years and I still love this. Thank you so much!!!
Hektic 2 (C64 game)
A downloadable game for Windows
I wrote this C64 game in 1992 and it was released by Double Density back then. Can be played in your favourite Commodore 64 emulator. This is the PAL version (if playing on hardware).
This is the uncracked, untrained version.
Free to download.
I decided to add this back into my collection of games I've made from back in the day.
Just download the PRG file and run with VICE 64 emulator or Frodo...etc

Thank you very much! I love sci-fi games, especially platformers. However I don't like that there are mini guys following the main character, I would prefer the main character to complete her missions alone, still, a good game.
Thanks for your feedback. I'm glad you enjoyed.
The game definitely could have been much better, but I'm generally pleased with it even though it's quite simple gameplay.
I tried Hektic the other day and it's so brutally difficult I can't see me playing it again.
Then I find out about this one and I can only but say.......
Thank you for making a simply fantastic platformer that looks fantastic, sounds fantastic and is a joy to play.
If it were possible I would ask for some plot of this game if it had one. The plot is not available on the Internet.
To be totally frank, there's not much plot to it other than you just need to retrieve the droids. I was just 'winging it'.
However, with Hektic III (a game I planned on doing recently), there is a story and plot that ties things up with Hektic 2 and adds a back story.
It's uncertain (probably unlikely) as to whether I'll ever get to make Hektic III, but I did start a 'Director's Cut' of Hektic 2 that has an end sequence that leads to Hektic III.
Hektic III is intended to be more action adventure.
Never say never, eh?
I do have several started projects that are not shown here. I don't see much point in posting them.
I did post Humpy though as the actual game is there, barring some title screen and other stuff.
Thanks for sharing first hand. I hope you will share more of your work in which you participated, and here I played:
