Hey guys,

I bought a Carnival arcade game from a guy. When I went to pick it up he discovered I was running in these circles and had asked if I could help him find someone who could write a small program featuring something like the deer in the photo. All he wants is for it to be running across the screen, one direction and have the ability to jump over obstacles at the press of the Atari button. I don't thing it has to be a "game" but more some sort of project for a larger Art project he is working on. If someone wants to talk with him let me know and I will get him in touch. It may be a paying gig, but that would be between you guys and him. Let me know. Thanks!!

I made a short program to illustrate the sprite. It is my very first program for the Atari 2600 so it is not too impressive.
I think the sprite is what is important. It's pretty close to your picture. And it only takes 8x8 of space.

.byte %01000100
.byte %01000100
.byte %00101100
.byte %01111100
.byte %00000100
.byte %00001010
.byte %00001010
.byte %00010001

Use arrows to go back and forth. SPACE to jump.
