Coming soon for all Atari homecomputers (16k minimum).

 

1-4 player paddle game, 4 player fun!

 

This weekend there will be final beta testing on the E-jagfest in Germany.

After that some fine-tuning and release before x-mas!

 

"have you played atari today?"

 

Cheers,

Sijmen.

Will you be doing cartridges or just digital? If cartridges, I'd like two.

Download only, and it's for free.

The beta's are already on my homepage.

 

I use MyIDE to load the XEX-files, but the k-loader and SIO also works great.

 

Grtz,

Sijmen.

Great, The second "port" from odyssey 2 ? since my "Speedway One" was sort of a port from odyssey 2.  Would like to see a Atari port of the  Gunfighter game from Odyssey2/Videopac. I was considering doing one myself but my knowlegde of matematics is probably not good enough since the bullet in the game bounces around in a pong like fashion when hitting the trees..Also the walking gunfighters (cowboys) have a smooth animation that requires lots of frames,  but still it can be done but requires a lot of work i guess.

Oh yeah, gunfight would be cool. Who knows.

 

Philips have some really cool games, never ported to other systems.

Satellite-attack is one of my favorites....

Childhood nostalgia coming up right now.  :-D

 

Here is some artwork for the current work-in-progress.....  ;)

Hey .. downloaded your .ATR, gonna play around with this.  I want to use one of those Graphics 2 Super IRG modes.  Maybe this one:

This game would look great in 80 colors at 160 pixel resolution and 9 color palettes. :)

Yes, the game will be free.

That makes more sense to me then asking money for it.

Why should I, life should be fun!

Hey Mr.Atari, I am writing about your game for a post to be released after you release the game and I was happily surprised how good it is, and also how the game play is similar to my C64 game Mission:Moon (https://www.youtube....h?v=2ZXWdixf0X4) . My game is coded in BASIC and it is not as sophisticated as yours, but it is interesting to see the same idea better implemented.

 

Nice job!

 

Paulo

Some of the downloads are probably because of an article on AtariOnline.pl :)
