Rockets that melt in a mouth

Posted by atari2600land in atari2600land's Blog, 22 April 2019 · 27 views

Rockets that melt in a mouth One of the biggest problems I had to overcome in making this giant mouth deadly was how do I get a collision between a tooth and a sprite. I eventually overcame this problem with this solution:if rocketx>48 and rocketx<120 then goto dying
It's not pretty, but it works quite well.
 
Yes, it was another day of coding. Well spent or not? You de...

Motocross Racer (Xonox)

Posted by DoctorSpuds in DoctorSpuds Reviews Things, 22 April 2019 · 32 views

Motocross Racer (Xonox) I think it’s about time I finally review one of my favorite Xonox titles, Motocross Racer. This is the pinnacle of pre red box programming; seriously the sheer amount of game they managed to stuff into a little 8K cartridge is amazing. I don’t really have much to say about Xonox as a company, I think I’ve already said all that could be s...

You Can Decide The Fate Of My Youtube Channel I went AWOL on my Youtube account https://www.youtube....user/cessnaace/  several years ago due to illness, injury, and a dead computer. While I was AWOL my account stayed constant at an average of 1,828 subscribers. Since my return not only have I not gained any new subscribers, I've lost a handful of the ones that I already had. This probably...

TI-99 40 column text game using T40XB

ti-99/4a, 40 column, game and 2 more...

I have been going through my Atari 8-bit games and looking to translate them into TI-99 games, mostly BASIC. The games I wrote in Atari MSBASIC are fairly straight forward translations. Atari BASIC has the issue of strings being completely different but can be got around.
One thing that both Atari BASICs have in common is the Atari uses 40 column text. Th...

Favorite Atari game Just wondering what everyone's favourite 2600 game. Mine would have to be adventure.
 
This was the first game I bought with my own money also the first game I ever beat. Even today I get it out and play it it is still fun and on 3rd setting can still be a bit of a challenge. Bezerk would have to be my second favourite. I would say Pac man is my 3rd...

You know those ugly yellow, or orange signs you see stapled to telephone poles all over your town? They might say "So-and-so buys houses fast, for cash! 555-5555" Yeah, I actually go all over town and clean that crap up. Just rip them down and throw them away. They really bug me because it's such an obvious scam. It's kind of become my crusade.
 
I k...

Jason of Star Command

I remember seeing this some time ago.   Nothing like a live action Filmation show complete with all the sound effects and music you would hear in He-Man. 
 

So they introduce the mini-robot, W1K1.   Pronounced Wiki.  That would make a great name for a helpful place to get information. https://atariage.com/forums/public...

S.O.P. Track 7 - Prelude and Fugue No7 in E-Flat Major

Posted by k-Pack in Switched on POKEY, 22 March 2019 · 151 views

This track may seem a little plucky but if you listen to the tracks in order your ears may  become conditioned to the point where it  doesn't sound half bad. Or maybe not.
 

 
All the rest of the music has been entered into the  MIDI Music System and is ready to record once some new sounds can be programed.  For this track...
