I would like to proudly introduce our newest game released under the title Mashed Turtles. The game is basically a Frogger clone (crossing the street with 8 lanes) with multiple players competing, therefore its best use is at Atari parties where up to 8 players can compete simultaneously through the MultiJoy 8 interface. However, it can also be played in 2-player mode on a stock Atari.
Credits:
Code by Fandal
Graphics, music and sfx by PG
The game was released as a part of the Czech diskmag Flop on April 4, 2011.

Awesome, time to dust off my Multijoy 16
Is it 4 player on an 800? is it even 800 compatible?

Wooohooo!

We will play this on our next convention, the NOMAM 11 in Northern Germany (http://andymanone.dy...lish_invitation)

Always pleased for Multiplayer Games from Czech Republik. Thanks Fandal and PG!

Wow!

This was a lot of fun! Only played it with one joystick, but hey, it was fun!

Love the music and the graphics are top notch!

Thanks!

Good to see the scene is very much alive and well.

Wonder if we can hit 25 game releases by the middle of the year?

Thanks.
:ponder:
Great looking, great presentation, very addictive, but just need to have another version:
For the Tezz and other English guys and invert the direction on the cars...
You know, English cars and just remember at London that always present: "Look to the right, Look to the Left" on the Ground.
This have to be a game for all Atarians, please don't put English outside...
That's a Trafic direction Minority in the World but we have to count with them!
:D

Great graphics & excellent music! Funny disclaimer on Title screen :)

Seems to be a little too difficult for me though. I'm taking the "Mashed" part of the game title quite literally. What would be a good score at the normal setting?

Program runs very smoothly. What language was this program written in?

Thanks for the kind words.
The easiest mode is when the turtles are set to "Fast" speed with point-based game mode.
In time-based mode it should not be a problem to reach about 5 points per minute.
The game is coded in assembler (MADS).

Yep,

or a "Chicken" clone... (originally from ACE newsletter 1982 by Stan Ockers)...

The other programs are also clones. But, how many of these "Frogger" type games can handle up to 8 players?!

I've taken the plunge and ordered a multijoy ( ~50 euros all in, including 2 joystick extension cables and postage)... they are made to order so if anyone else wants one email them on order@abbuc-raf.de :)

Just a warning the multijoy doesn't work with two of my joysticks the Quickshot types with autorfire, it seems ok with the Comp Pros and various other ones - I'll post a list when finished testing.

See below!

The powered joysticks does not work with multijoy. However if you switch the autofire off the joystick should work.
