Hello Atari fans !

My name is Laurent Fontaine from Gamopat Studio (french guys), and I want to present you our first game on iPhone :

BOMB ON PIXEL CITY

An Atari 2600-like game on iPhone ! With big fat pixels, fun gameplay with east schemes, old computer chiptune, scoring with leaderboard.

In Bomb on Pixel City you pilot a bomber which has to destroy the enemy installations. Try to avoid anti-aircraft, protect hospitals and destroy the missile silo ! Go fast before crashing on the buildings.

Here is the trailer :



Hope Atari 2600 fans will appreciate this game.

Yes of course, here is a gameplay video, the controls are very easy. It was the main focus.

Awesome game. Thanks for posting. I left a review and will tweet about this and inform other forums about this classic. Keep up the good work!

Thank you, difficult for us to convince people that an iphone game could be as good as an retro-game on Atari 2600. They are so many "flash" games on iPhone with awful gameplay.

If somebody is interesting in programming an Atari 2600 or Colecovision version of BOMB ON PIXEL PIXEL, we can support (and finance perhaps)

We think this game with be perfect for Atari or Coleco system.

You should ask on the Atari 7800 board since the XM add-on is due out soon.

It's now showing up on iTunes as .99 cents, I guess it's not free anymore, although Halloween is not here yet....on the east coast of USA anyway.
Maybe you should clarify which Halloween nite by timezones.

Similar to the Android question, I'd love to see a Windows phone version. Any chance that will see the light of day?
