May I make a suggestion? How about adding a sound for when a life is won?

Bonus Ship award sound added.



I also modified the spinner shape.



NOTE to CCII users!!! The Bin is now 16K (it was 32K), I was able to shave it down.


Thanks,

Bob

You might consider some sort of short force field or to stop the spinners from coming down immediately after dying. Of course that's unless you intended for the game to have cheap deaths. :lol:

The new spinner graphic looks good and the bonus sound is a nice addition.

Fuuny how some male mention of paddle or analog support. I've only played Astroblast on the Atari 2600 with a joystick. I can only imagine a paddle or other analog control would make this shooter quite awkward.

Give it a shot. It's the only reason I still check out Astroblast from time to time.

Still excited about Meteor Shower though.

Thanks!
I put a small delay before sending down rocks when starting a new player. That should help :)
BTW, this does use the High Score Cart, so I guess in that way it does utilize the XM a bit.


Thanks for the suggestions everyone!

That was a bit of alright, that was. Oh, if a cart were to be made....you know, add it along with the others. Now, we just need something to check out some of the added features, like the HS function... hopefully that will be rectified by this fall. ;)

Hi Guys:



- Fixed a small bug with the 2nd UFO coming out at 100,000.
- Used PAC-MAN-RED's ground as his design looked better than mine. :)

OK, this is it!

Oh, and this is what the carts are going to look like (there's a choice of Blue or Red - thanks to Marc Oberhauser):

I'd dig one too. Going to be sold through AA store, or elsewhere? And what will the price be?
