Hello, I'm new to this board and so excited to see this homebrew/hack world.  So, sorry for my noobiness.  I am a pro wrestler and entertainer who works through the midwest and Japan.  This last spring I was featured on the ABC reboot at Uncle Clutch on the Gong Show.  I also have had a film crew that had followed me the past 2 years for a short documentary.  The film will debut next spring and will run across he country.  It's called "Kinderchomper".  I'm known as "The baby eating menace of Japan" and will return there for a tour next week.  Anyways, I am curious about the possibility of a "Kinderchomper" 2600 game like like an old film tie in game.  Possibly a hack of Pac Man but eating babies or Title Match Pro Wrestling.  We can still fit the game into the end credits of the film and if a physical cartridge could be linked to on the film at plugged at the festivals.  I'm also hosting horror films like the classic horror hosts of old on Roku in winter and can plug the game and the Atari community in general.  Youtube "Uncle Clutch" and "Barking Spider Clutch" to see more if you're interested.  I can send a private link to the documentary as well.  It's just a short film about wrestling and also an Arnold Schwarzeneggar art exhibition of mine.  I'd really love to see this game a reality, but as I said.  I'm not a programmer and am quite oblivious to what it takes to hack or make a physical game.  I'm also not interested in making any personal profit from the game.  Thanks for reading and I'm happy to be a part of the Atari Age community.  Thanks again.

Google Tunnel Runner Atari. If you imagine the player is a baby, then your character is already in an Atari 2600 game.

By the power of Grayskull!  Tunnel Runner is it!  Just needs a title swap and it's golden! I've oddly never played this one.

I do like the idea of a pallet swap over Real Sports Boxing as well where you can punch a giant baby.  Title Match Wrestling was kind of a bad game. I really do like that Tunnel Runner game idea though too!

Ok, here's a quick cover mock up of a Tunnel Runner hack.  BABY  MAZE!  Who has the capable hands to make an in-game title swap? Any other game suggestions?

Shouldn't be too hard to do, but I believe Tunnel Runner requires a special RAM-Plus chip so it may be more difficult and/or expensive to get actual physical carts made, if that is your goal.

Thanks for the reply. I also recently discovered that too. I'm not completely tethered to that specific game or idea. The game villains looked so perfect that it seemed like an easy title swap though. Bummer. I'm no looking to have carts to sell however. Just a few for the film crew and one to have in an actual atari at festivals.

I've tried my hand at doing some graphic hacks, using Stella. Some games are easier to hack than others, so your game choice is going to be important. There are a lot of tutorials on the forums explaining how to do simple hacks with Stella. Doing it yourself would be the way to go, since hiring a good programmer would be cost prohibitive.

 

I don't know if you could do the hack, but "Fast Food" may be a good game to start out with, since it's an eating game. I know there are already a few different hacks of it, so it's possible it might not be too hard to work with.

 

I wish I could be more help, but that's really about all I can tell you. :)

Thanks for the advice.  I'm a bit intimidated but maybe I'll have to look further into Stella.  I appreciate it.  I'm going to have to check out Fast Food too.
