Wow, great job, I loved playing Omega Race in arcades back in the day, but boy, it was a tough game! Look forward to trying this out on a real console. Thanks for the video, Trebor!

Looking funky :)

 

Any chance of having the two buttons in-game to be fire and thrust (instead or in addition to up)?

This was one of my favorite arcade games too, so I'll keep my fingers crossed for the cart version. ;-)

Hey is it okay if I could do a label art for this game trying to match it as the old Omega Race artworks?

?

I have seen your work and would love to see whatever you are inspired to create.

Perhaps your design might aim for a look inspired by Omega Race but yet different and a little rocked up which is also what I am aiming for with the game itself.

The label would also need to fit Atari shells.
