Someone posted one of those "What Would Your Star Wars/Porn Star/My Little Pony Name Be?" type things where you pick words from 2 columns based on the first letter of your first and last name called "What Would Your Atari Game Be?" on one of the Atari facebook groups. I got Sky Destroyer, which sounds like a Taiwanese pirate game with some stolen Transformers art on the label. It isn't (at least according to Atarimania), so I went ahead and made it.

The Sky Destroyer moves back and forth across the top of the screen, adding a piece to his Space Wall every time he reaches the edge. Shooting him causes him to freeze temporarily and turn around. Shooting the wall causes a chunk to break off which will destroy your ship. The chunk will stay at the bottom of the screen for about 4 seconds, limiting your movement.

 

It's a little buggy and there's barely any sound but, hey, it's supposed to be a Taiwanese pirate game and I made it in less than a day, so you get what you get.

 

UPDATE - Sky Destroyer-FINAL.zip contains the final version of the ROM, hi-res labels and a PDF manual -- Everything you need to make your own bootleg copy!

Cute!  I kinda want to see the meme now to see what my Atari game should be.  :-)

For those who didn't get to see it, here's what the "What Would Your Atari Game Name Be?" from one of the Atari facebook groups that was referenced in the first post of this thread. Mine is Death Journey.

I bet you'd get a lot more for it on ebay if you had the manual.  :)

 

The cart looks great, BTW. Maybe a little too good for a "bootleg."

It's a combination of Fishing Derby and Sub Scan. I'll post the game tomorrow. In the meantime, here's a preview...

I got Sword Journey. Sounds like a game about someone shipping a sword via UPS.
