Cover art for Blitz on the Commodore VIC-20, and Commodore 64, the game that Blitz Game might be a clone of.
Status: Existence Unconfirmed
Blitz Game is a Commodore 64 game made at an unknown time by seemingly a bunch of "Hungarian demo freaks". Not a lot of info is known about this game, but what is known is that Guy Shavitt composed music for it. However, none of the music from the game has surfaced in his catalog. What were these demo freaks is currently unknown. There are some theories as to what this might be.
A Clone/Update of Blitz[edit | edit source]
As shown in the info box, it's possible that it might be a clone of Blitz, where you drop bombs on several buildings. The clone would've most likely had graphically impressive explosions, and enemies to blow up as well. Some buildings would probably have defense shields, or cannons on top to shoot the player.
A Clone of Mayhem In Monsterland[edit | edit source]
Since blitz is a word similar to mayhem, it's also possible that it might be a clone of Mayhem In Monsterland. The game would've featured a similar character, and a few ideas taken from the game, but with a few twists here, and there to make it more unique from Mayhem.
An Original Game[edit | edit source]
Perhaps it was a game that wasn't really a clone of any game, and perhaps it had unique gimmicks from other games at the time.
To this day, no other info has been put upon this game at all, and Shavitt hasn't put up any more info on this game, nor where we could find this. The game might've been released in some way, shape, or form, or was cancelled. Whatever happened is still unknown to this day.
