CAPTAIN ISHTAR is a four-part enhanced SEUCK game for the Commodore 64. You can play the game in a C64 emulator (we recommend VICE) or you can port the game onto real C64 hardware if you have the resources to do so.

The download file features the .d64 (disk version), .tap (tape version) and .prg (c64 program files). The files included in the download have been tested on and work perfectly on the C64Mini/Maxi systems.

Nice game. Our German-language review can be found in our recorded livestream starting at 02:24:16. Subscription to our YouTube or Twitch channel is welcome. 🙂

i agree with @lenakrator, by default i don't like seuck too much,  but this is a great game full of level, gameplay, music, a 10/10 or Zzap gold medal game. Thanks Psytronik and we wait for the sequel in work these days...

I don't understand, what's wrong with SEUCK games? Everyone says, oh a seuck game, no, no.. This game looks really cool!


a commercial SEUCK game??? no way man!!


This is WAY more than just a "SEUCK" game - it's packed full of enhancements and extra features!

Why not???? Its fully and officially legal from the creators of S.E.U.C.K. And if someone works over lots of time to create a much more than a simple S.E.U.C.K. game he probably can certainly legitimately expect some scholarship money in return.


Hello. Is full cover art available somewhere in high resolution?

very good
