Reset64 is proud to present: 

Get The Diamonds (VIC20) 

By Derek.


Guide Diamond Dylan through each cave, collecting enough diamonds so he can finally retire and afford to buy a nice cottage in the country, away from the traffic.

Get The Diamonds is a 1 player game for your 3kb expanded VIC20, featuring colourful graphics, in game sound and 8 fiendish levels.

Get The Diamonds will work on both PAL and NTSC VIC20s.

VIC20 instructions:

  • Collect the diamonds to proceed to the next level
  • Exit each level via the steps
  • Collect a key to open 1 door
  • Shields give Diamond Dylan temporary invulnerability against the cave inhabitants
  • Shift + F1 - Reset level
  • Shift + F7 - Abort game

Get The Diamonds will work on a Commodore VIC20, TheC64/TheVIC20 or your favourite VIC20 emulator. A file configured and ready to play on the The C64/TheVIC20 is included in the downloads, as well as a standard PRG file and D64 image.

NOTE: Get The Diamonds requires 3kb RAM Expansion to work.

Nice game ! In your honor a full game play video.

Hiya.  I can't get the game to run in WinViCE. It starts loading and but then stops and just shows READY and the flashing cursor.  I've tried D64 and PRG. I've also tried autostarting the image, attaching it manually, smart attaching and I've tried Boray's PRGStarter.  I have set the host machine to PAL and NTSC and I've even tried different RAM configs just in case.  I'm at a loss here.  Any ideas?

Hi. Sorry for the late reply, I only just discovered this message. Did you get this sorted? If not, I'll take a look over the weekend ! As for mem, you only require bank 0.

Heh, no worries.  I only just noticed your reply too. :)  Sadly, I still haven't managed to make it work.  I'll keep trying with the nightly builds of WinViCE just in case it's an emulation error.

very good

Yay! You bring magic to the VIC20!


Derek, you are doing some great work on our humble Vic 20. Well done, mate.

I love it, Thanks <3
