See how I coined the term there. :)


I've just finished UFO over the weekend! (for now at least, the best I could squeeze into 4K) and also here is the most recent update to K.C.'s Crazy Nightmare!

Great idea! I always though Killer Bees should be ported to the Atari 2600.

I downloaded these last night but forgot to try, Killer Bees would make a awesome 2600 game, I also think Attack of the Timelord would be cool

Edit - Just tried them out on the Flashback Portable, and while the do run they have glitches so cant actually play. I'll have to try in Stella in a bit

Yup, the portable emulation is somewhat broken. They work fine on Stella based emulators and the Harmony Cart with the original hardware. The members running the "portable controls fix" thread have fixed the two games I wrote that actually come on the flashback devices (Shield Shifter and Strip Off) but do not seem interested in fixing any old homebrew that comes along. I really hope future flashback portable models clean up their emulation. :)

Neuronic and I have worked out an agreement and I am happy to report I will be publishing and releasing UFO for the ATARI 2600 on cartridge. UFO! was one of my favorite Odyssey2 games. More details on the web site page:






Stay tuned for more information!

That Shield Shifter is a really good game. A nice mix of Yar's Revenge & a vertical shooter.
