A lot of people think Bubsy started on Atari (really the SNES and then Genesis) so .... sure... why not!   Here we have it folks...

 

BUBSY : Kitt'N Kaboodle

 

Screen Shot 2017-10-25 at 7.43.15 AM.png

 

This fun hack of Fast Eddie was made possible by Hack-O-Matic 3 and some coloring by KevinMos3 who has already made many good color hacks for Atari 2600 games.

 

The Woolies are at it again stealing Bubsy's stuff and this time they stole EVERYTHING and stored it on the planet Kaboodle!!!   Bubsy will need to JUMP OVER the Woolies to get it all back.  In the game you'll see objects Bubsy needs to collect on based on items he collected in...

 

Bubsy: Claws Encounters of the Furred Kind

Bubsy 2

Bubsy Fractured Furry Tales

Bubsy 3D

Bubsy 3D: Bubsy Visits the James Turrell Respective

 

And even the newest which came out recently that I'm enjoying...

Maayyybbbee.   I'm a big fan of Fractured Furry Tales, but we'll see how The Woolies Strike Back turns out.   Like what I see so far.

Did some more improvements to the game and got all the prizes in the order I wanted them.  So now it is...

 

Levels 1 & 2-Bubsy: Claws Encounters of the Furred Kind.

Levels 3 & 4-Bubsy 2

Levels 5 & 6-Bubsy Fractured Furry Tales

Levels 7 & 8-Bubsy 3D

Level 9 -Bubsy 3D: Bubsy Visits the James Turrell Respective

 

Level 10-Bubsy: Woolies Strike Back

 

For those that know anything about Bubsy I think you'll get a kick out the choices for prizes on each level with intended jokes on Levels 3 and 9.

 

New binary attached!

Just when the red shirt was growing on me, I figured out how to change it to white.  :D

 

Been a fun exercise in 2600 game hacking (and free advertising for the new Bubsy game)  :P

 

So maybe in the future I'll try making this a 8K image with a splash screen, changed sounds, in game music...

Nahhh.. 

 

I did try to tinker with the background color but starting to think Fast Eddie didn't have a background color, just defaulted to black.

 

Might try sprucing up the Woolies a bit more.

 

In the meantime, newest binary attached.

This is a great looking game!

I am playing this my flashback portable, so it is a little hard to see all the details. When he jumps, do Bubsy's ears disappear into the ceiling or do they just touch it?

I think at the moment they are disappearing.  Maybe I could try to move the character down a pixel or two.

This looks great, Doc!

Also, I've been on the fence about a PS4 for years but a new Bubsy game might make me pull the trigger! ;)

Agreed Atari LBC.  At the very least you can buy it on steam and try it there before getting the $250-$300 Ps4.  Another option.

 

Like a lot of people on Atariage I'm a video game *collector* so naturally I bought the physical Ps4 game that I can store on a shelf.  I will probably play it on a friend's ps4 till I get my own system a few years later.  ;)

 

(Did that with Battlestar Galactica on the Ps2.  Bought the game, got the system at a flea market for $30 four years later.)

 

Alright, with Atari Dog's input I have lowered the Bubster just a bit so his ears don't disappear into the ceiling.  (Also added some yellow to the bottom of the feet in the jumping sprite.)

 

Screen Shot 2017-10-23 at 10.58.12 PM.png

 

And with some tinkering the shirt now has the "!" on it.

So now we are getting down to the small stuff graphically.  Need to add a nose.  Thought I would throw these out there for input and fun.

 

Currently our character looks like a owl without his nose.  At least I think so...

Current.png

 

So I played around with some alternatives for looking left (at the player and breaking the 4th wall)

 

Nose left.png Nose Lower.png Jaw Dropping.png

 

And ones where he looks to the right...

 

Look right.png Yogi-Bubsy.png

 

The last one on the right I call "Yogi-Bubsy".  :P

 

So far I am liking these two..

 

Like1.png Like2.png

 

The one on the right looks a bit odd close up as the nose is just under the right eye (well the left eye to the Bubster, but right from our perspective).  Looks alright though at regular size.   So far liking the one to the right best.

 

Also, one other thought, oddly the Woolies were a similar color to Bubsy.  As I took this picture of Yogi Bubsy with a Woolie I wondered if I shouldn't make them a lighter color...

Woolie lighter.png

 

 

This video art is addicting once you get started.  ;)

So there I was, happy with my work.  I make this picture for my profile while I think of the next thing to do ...

 

photo-4709.jpg

 

And I realize looking at the two side by side there was still more work to do at least with coloring and a bit more shaping.

 

So I took color samples of the character image to the left, compared them with the color chart in Hack-O-Matic 3:

 

Screen Shot 2017-10-25 at 5.20.27 AMa.png

 

And after doing that for a bit, got this version which should have been true color (34 from 28) for the body, FA (previously 1F) for the bottom of the feet, 3F (Previously 1F) for the area around the mouth, and had 35 for the top of the head and ears (previously 28 and 45).

 

photo-4709 copy1.jpg

 

The background however is black, so to compensate I tried to lighten up the picture (34 to 37)

photo-4709 copy 2.jpg

 

And then I lightened it up a bit more (37 to 3A)

photo-4709 copy 3.jpg

 

 

Next would be fun to change the background to a sky blue.  I don't see where the background is defined.  I think to define it (or add that) will require a decompile and adding that to the instructions (and then recompile).

 

Suffice to say, anything at this point (background, title screen, possible music or sound changes) will probably require more than hex editing and hack-o-matic.  :/

 

-------------

 

Sometimes when I stand in the right place at the right time (depending on backdrop) the "!" on the shirt is the right color.  :P

It's funny I made a Bubsy sprite too, with the idea to use the Carrot Kingdom engine later for a Bubsy game, but this is awesome. ^^

 

Great work my man!

Yeah it was an idea long ago when I first started Carrot Kingdom in like 2014, I made that sprite, (less attitude and more cute style than yours I'll have to see where I stuck it) but yours captures more of the essence of Bubsy.

..yours captures ... the essence of Bubsy.

 

Really cool.  :)   I've been working to see how the Atari VCS/2600 would interpret the character and cool to hear it is getting there.  And this cursed project keeps giving me ideas just when I think I'm done.  :P  Part of the programming learning and challenge.   So hopefully more to come.
