Hi guys:

 

I started this around the beginning of October along with Trebor, PAC-MAN-RED, and Defender_2600.  Wanted to get it done for Halloween, but it's not anywhere near done yet. :(

 

I don't have a name for this yet, but it's a Zombie Apocalypse game, where you have to survive the night while being overrun by zombies.

 

Here are some screenshots of the game for the time being:

Coming soon! :)

 

Bob

Thanks :)  What you're seeing is the incredible graphical work by PAC-MAN-RED ;)

 

I'm working on shooting at the moment.  It's a game where the player is centered on the screen and the environment moves around him/her (Like 'Advanced D&D: Cloudy Mountain' on the Intellivision)

 

 

Thanks again,

Bob

Ahh, that's very cool, and more difficult to program! Have any other games on the 7800 used this technique?

Yay, another PMP-original 7800-exclusive title inbound!

Looks fantastic, Bob, but we've come to expect that. And great graphics work, PMR. :)

Most impressive, Bob and Pac Man Red!

 

Are you sure they are zombies instead of Nintendo fanbois out to get our protagonist who is the lone Atari fan survivor? Wait, same thing.  :)

Yeah, looks like the original GTA. Is that basically how it plays? Run over zombies with your car?

Correct...Those going more old school than PlayStation, think somewhere between Robotron: 2084 and Smash TV[Total Carnage]/Gauntlet(-ish).  ;)
