Thought I'd get this out there. Last night and today I have been working on a version of JezzBall. It can't be exactly like JezzBall, so in order to avoid copyright infringement AND due to the 2600's capabilities, it won't be EXACTLY like it, though it is similar.
This test screen has a non-moving ball, and the object is to close as much space as possible Qix-like without the line you create hitting the ball.
The lines you create are either horizontal or vertical, as indicated by the cursor.
I'll add some stuff to make it differ from JezzBall, since I can only have one ball bouncing around.
The 6 digit number is the score, and the 2 digit number is the %age of space you've cleared.

+ Fixed a bug where starting a line at the beginning glitches lines up (u variable was set to 0 instead of 1!)
+ Ball now keeps bouncing around when lines are being made and space is filling up (you sure can fit a lot of stuff in vblank!)
+ Increased level % clearing to 85.
You can play Jezzball online at www.jezzball.net
My highest score was 100,000 or so at level 11 or so.

Introducing Bob the Block. Make sure Bob doesn't touch the line that's being drawn. Otherwise, you'll lose a life. Well, in the final version anyway. If you complete a level or die, it goes back to the title screen in this version. I've decided to name the game "Billy the Ball". The ball is red, like most playground balls are. So I changed the border to green. I think the introduction to Bob the Block makes the game harder. Bob can go anywhere in the screen, so it's tough to judge where he'll go next since it's random.
