Citadel 1986

Free PC Trial

Size : 6.9MB

The Citadel. Built in 1986 by a lunatic and left undiscovered, decomposing for 30 long years. You are its first victim. Citadel 1986 is a retro platform game harking back to the Commodore 64 days. The entire game is set across a single giant scrolling level, just like the games that inspired me to start coding.

Kick My Geek : 9/10

"Citadel 1986 is really entertaining. Its environment, its general atmosphere, really distinguishes it from other platform games. You'll want to keep playing, if only to meet more enemies that'll remind you of your childhood and the music is a great addition to the game, a real pleasure for the ears!"

Player Feedback

"Love this game. Easy on the eye, great gameplay, humour and it takes me back to my CBM64 days.

Great platformer game with well thought out level design and unique enemies. Well worth the purchase!

I love this game. It's a simple back-to-the-roots platformer with a bit of exploration thrown in."
