Clive Townsend's Saboteur! for Switch
Collaboration with Clive Townsend brought about a remastered version of Saboteur! available for Switch.
We recently saw mention on Ausretrogamer's website of a Speccy game for Switch! The Wii was the first console I used to download games. The Virtual Console often had some interesting titles from other platforms from Commodore 64 and TurboGrafx-16 to Sega's Master System and Genesis.

So I was pretty stoked to find out Clive Townsend's award winning 1985 video game Saboteur! on Nintendo Switch. It's been out since Nov 2018, so it's new to me... and worth mentioning. SimFabric worked with Townsend to remaster the original mission and add more levels and enemies. The mission from the original game can be can be played as ZX Spectrum and Commodore 64, You'll find nine retro consoles graphic modes for the entire game!

I've always loved the ZX Spectrum's visual look it's as distinctive as early NES games were to me. Seeing that graphic style is really cool and Saboteur! was an award-winning well-reviewed game. Saboteur! is currently selling for $8, although I've heard some very enticing sale prices. Check it out!
