Here's how I think a better version of Star Castle could have been attempted from back in the 80s:

 

The Qotile, instead of just moving up and down, probably tries to move towards your horizontal position. The speed increases as the levels go up.

 

Instead of the shields in Yars' Revenge, 3 columns of Circus Atari-like blocks. They move up and down, in opposite directions between the 3 layers. If a layer gets completely destroyed, it either gets renewed or the deeper layer replaces the "upper" layer.

 

The Qotile shoots a clear shot at the Yar (or probably just horizontal) if there's an opening in its shields. The shot could re-aim itself in higher levels.

 

The destroyer missile stays the same.

 

Unsure if the Zorlon cannon should still be used or just have the normal shot for destroying the Qotile.

 

These are part of an Atari fangame for Windows I've been having, but I might not end up making it due to lack of interest.

Doesn't sound to me like you have a lack of interest... I suggest you make the game for yourself. Then if someone else likes it too, that's a bonus.

I don't know how to make a game that runs on an actual Atari yet (I read tutorials and could only make a very simple game) so I made several Windows games that imitate the style (and i aimed to be authentic) of the Windows consoles but many people say they only want games that actually run on the actual consoles.

 

This was going to be part of a shooter game featuring Atari as a boss, or I might make this as a standalone game, but either way it'd probably be a Windows game.

 

Some videos on the Atari-styled Windows games I tried to get an interest on:

Isn't there a Yars' Revenge II on one of the Flashbacks? Flashback 2 if I remember right.

That's Yars' Return. I'm talking about if there was yet another sequel, and also about how it might/could have been, if the creator wanted to better approximate the original Star Castle in that sequel.
