The Atari Jaguar developers Reboot of JagWare have today announced the release of Downfall, a freely available game for the Atari Jaguar game console. The game was released at the AC 2011 party in France this weekend. Downfall is inspired by the games Spike Goes Down (Vectrex) and Man Goes Down (Atari 2600), both created by Alex Herbert.

The object of Downfall is to guide your character through a never-ending chasm on a series of platforms, carefully avoiding rising above or dropping below the viewable area of the screen. Reboot have released the game free for download in ROM, BJL, and CDI format. The source code to the game is also freely available to download from the Downfall website.

We hope you all have as much fun with it as we have had making it.

PRESS THE BUTTON!

Just a quick note - to play this in Virtual Jaguar download the .ROM version and rename it .JAG.

Our ROM version has the Universal header on it to make it bootable on real flash carts.

Another quick note to add here: The game doesn't work in the latest version of Project Tempest (0.95), but may work in PT 0.5. Our apologies in advance.

Thanks CyranoJ for another Jaguar game.

A YouTube video of this new game would be great.

Hey, I have no way of making a cd, or using an emulator. Because I own a Mac, and no emulators work, and the cd burning programs suck for it... ANYWAY- do you have videos of this? Or screen shots?

No videos or screenshots to put up at the moment. Both of those should be coming soon, though. You don't have Windows installed in a dual-boot config on your Mac?

Anyone having any luck getting it to run in Virtual Jaguar? I renamed the ROM but get a blank screen... Nothing happens after. :sad:

Hi Austin. Turn the BIOS emulation on so it boots thru the spinning cube.

I think I tried that, but I'll double-check when I get home from work tonight. :)

Well, I just fixed it for Project Tempest 0.95.

Here's a link to a new binary *JUST FOR THIS EMULATOR* - please use the other downloads on the site for normal use.

PROJECT TEMPEST ONLY VERSION
Load and Run address: $4000

I'll ask SH3 to update the site when he returns from AC11 :)

For the people who have played it - please post your scores :)

I'm averaging around 12500. The clownshoes get me every time!

I think I would've contributed more code to this release if I hadn't spent most of my waking hours playing the newest builds. :)

Is it the CDI file I need to burn this to a CD for play on my Jag CD?

Dumb question but just making sure. :)

I did a short video introduction. Sorry about some German babbling and shitty quality, but the 60fps give my mobile camera some huge headache :)
