I did some ugly hacks of the asm code to make the 48 pixel minikernels as well as the score kernel display correctly on the AFP. The 96 pixel minikernel could probably also be similarly hacked, but I decided to just stick with the 48 pixel minikernels for the AFP version.

I don't want to put up my hacked versions for download since I don't want to create confusion with the official version, but I can send you what I have with instructions if you are wanting to use the titlescreen kernel with the AFP.

I'd love to. I play my portable all the time and really wanted to make games specifically for it.

We had a great weekend at PRGE!  So many great games, and cool people.  It was exciting to finally see Space Game for sale at the AtariAge booth!  The box, cart, and manual all look great.

 

Maggie managed to get a winning game during the convention, too!  I personally haven't yet made it past wave 9 without cheating.   :)

It looks like Space Game is in the AtariAge store now!   :)

The cart version adds AtariVOX high score saving support (thanks to RevEng and his driver), as well as a bonus wave.

 

The code for the AtariAge splash screen was "borrowed" from Star Castle Arcade with permission from Thomas Jentzsch, and the music, as usual, was done by Maggie.

Thanks for making this Space Game, it is a real gem.  Very fun to play. I'm not very good, but I still enjoy playing it.
