Are there any gameplay videos or review videos out for L.E.M? I'm stoked for release.. One/some videos of gameplay would help.

How are things going with L.E.M.? My Atari is raring at the bit for some lunar lander action.

Will the patch still have 2010 on it, or 2016?

One is the ROM, and the other is basic source code.

Some suggestions:

 

1- I think you should be able to see both directional and main-engine thrusters firing at the same time. Like left & down, or right & down. Not just down OR left/right.

 

2- The flashing pad indicator should be a different contrasting color.

 

3- I think there should be less tedium at the instant of landing. Something like how the original arcade Lunar Lander does with the zoom. If that's not possible, how about a changing of the main engine thrust curve. Where it is less bouncy and sensitive? Or even a way to fine control it.

 

Let's make a great game even better!

Thank you very much for your advices!

1. Standard kernel has two missiles, I don't remember why I didn't use both, perhaps because I had problems. In fact A8 version of the game has this feature.

2. I chose grey color because on the Moon there are no pads (but no red asteroids too...).

3. With DPC+ kernel (released one year after L.E.M.) I can enhance the game with high resolution lander, more asteroids, no blank lines etc. but I would need to return to work on this project and the beautiful game manual design would have to be changed.
