New Games

CGE2010 will see the unveiling of several new games from AtariAge!

Turbo
Atari 2600
 

Turbo

 

Rev your engines and get ready to test your driving skills in TURBO! As in the popular Sega® arcade game, you speed your racer over city, country and mountain roads. Twist and turn to swerve past other cars. Watch your speed on dangerous road curves and icy roadways. TURBO gives you the thrill of a genuine road race!

Turbo is based on the popular 1981 Sega arcade game of the same name, but was never commercially released by Coleco for the 2600. Turbo was demonstrated at the 1983 Consumer Electronics Show (and was even featured in Coleco’s Atari 2600 catalogs) but was never to be seen again, even though it was roughly 80% complete at the time. Only when former Atari 2600 programmer Anthony Henderson discovered a copy of Turbo in his attic many years later did Turbo finally see the light of day.

AtariAge will be selling reproduction copies of Turbo at CGE, complete with a professionally printed box, manual, and label, all in the style of Coleco's Atari 2600 releases. This includes using a Coleco cartridge shell for the game! We've also created an insert for the box to keep your Turbo cartridge in place.

Thanks to the talented efforts of several AtariAge members, an “Enhanced” version of Turbo as well as the original prototype are included on this cartridge, with a new, on-screen menu to choose between the two.

You can read a review of the original Turbo prototype over at AtariProtos.com.

Duck Attack
Atari 2600
 

Duck Attack!

 

For years, the elusive mad scientist dr. Enrique MacGuffin has been genetically engineering giant, radioactive mutant ducks. These ducks are said to lay eggs of pure plutonium, which, the authorities say, dr. MacGuffin is planning to use to create a doomsday device.

The authorities have finally located his secret lair, and have asked you, a renowned robotics inventor, to explore the lair and retrieve the radioactive eggs before MacGuffin can use them in his doomsday device.

Naturally, you don’t want to go in there yourself, since the place is teeming with radioactivity, but you know just who to send: your brand new robotic creation, who is immune from the effects of the deadly radiation.

With your trusty robot’s help, you can explore the lair and collect the plutonium eggs — but watch out: the mutant ducks are in there too, and they would love nothing more than to eat a metallic intruder. And no doubt dr. MacGuffin has filled his many rooms with other deadly creatures and mechanical booby traps.

Duck Attack! is a brand new homebrew game by Will Nicholes. The object of the game is to collect enough eggs to advance to the next level, while avoiding the mutant, fire-breathing ducks, and other deadly objects. Duck Attack! is an impressive exploration adventure game, squeezing every last ounce of power out of the Atari 2600's modest hardware. If you like Adventure, you'll love Duck Attack!

K.O. Cruiser

 

K.O. Cruiser is a first-person boxing game that matches you against six different boxers with different strengths, weaknesses and styles. Do you have what it takes to be the champ? Is the Gold Belt within your reach? Let’s find out!

You'll face six different opponents in K.O. Cruiser, each with his unique traits and special moves:

  • Tomato Ken
  • K.C. Nova
  • Russ Tick
  • Major Concussion
  • Wally B.
  • Rod Ickle

You move your boxer with the joystick controller to move around the ring, throw punches, and guard against punches. You can also quickly dodge left or right to avoid an incoming punch from your opponent. If you're knocked down, you can attempt to get back up and into the fight by quickly tapping the joystick fire button.

K.O. Cruiser features three levels of difficulty so you can continue to be challenged after you've mastered your opponents on easier levels!

The War Continues...

After the successful elimination of the terrorists and their missile silo complexes, we have heard through various sources that they have relocated, and have doubled their security! Once again you must invade enemy territory and prevent the missile launching aimed at Washington D.C. and stop the terrorists once and for all!

In FailSafe you must make your way through five different terrains in search of the Depot where you will pick up Fail-Safe clues. One letter in the code, in its correct position, appears in the center of your fuel gauge. The sixth terrain is the most dangerous of all - the missile silo is heavily guarded by all enemies, including a mine field! If you make your way past that, you will have to enter the four-digit hexadecimal code to stop the launch and save the world. Do that, and you will start over in a more difficult environment. Otherwise...

Along the way you will encounter more accurate jeeps, cruise missiles, stationary shooters, pill boxes, and even the terrorists themselves, hiding behind bunkers! Don't worry though, the U.S. has dropped helpful packages which are unfortunately guarded by these enemies. But once you destroy them, the packages are yours for the taking! They will come in these forms:

  • (F) Freeze Enemy - these will jam the enemy radar and halt them for a period of time.
  • (I) Invincible - your tank will be invulnerable to enemies and their fire, but it only lasts for a few seconds, so be quick!
  • (S) Speed - gives your tank a temporary speed boost, making it capable to plow through trees, towns and water like they were open road.
  • (D) Distance - your tank will be able to shoot much farther distances than your enemies, for a short period of time.

When these power ups are about to run out of their power, your tank will begin to flash. Make sure you get to safe ground!

FailSafe is a new Atari 7800 homebrew game by Bob DeCrescenzo (aka, PacManPlus), who has a stellar track record in releasing a variety of high-quality arcade ports under his belt. FailSafe is an unofficial sequel to Atari's original game Countermeasure for the Atari 5200. In February 2010 AtariAge held a FailSafe Label Contest to solicit artwork for FailSafe's cartridge and manual. We had 50 great submissions, with the winning label submitted by AtariAge users Jah Fish and Nonner242.
