Or, My first Atari 2600 game.

Well, I made an Atari 2600 game using Visual Batari Basic. Great program, I recommend it for Newbies.

The game I made is called Planet of the Grapes,The story (Yeah, story in an ATARI GAME!) is that You're Dr. Setra, and he's after crashing his ship on the Planet of the Grapes. You must fight off the army of Master Grapist. (Which consists of 20 grape things.)

The controls are simply Joystick Left and Right to move, and Fire to shoot lazors.

I generated a cover too. I did the terrible artwork in tribute to Mega Man on NES

I attached both the cover and .BIN to the post.

I know it's quite crappy, but it's my first so be sure to provide feedback.

It's tested and works fine with the Stella emulator.

Thanks, atariAge. You've helped a lot already.

There doesn't seem to be a way to restart after the game is over. If we try to follow at least some of the Game Standards and Procedures, after 2 seconds, the game should allow the player to press fire or the reset switch (the player's choice) to restart the game:
