Hello! Its been a while. I just wanted to ask, can somebody please make turmoil for the TI-99/4A? This is my high score, and its my favorite Atari game. I think you will like it(if you havent already). My dad(Opry99er) cannot make it.

Interesting looking game. I think a good competition would be to select a game and see who can come up with the best conversion in whatever language they choose.  This could be a good candidate.

^^nice idea, OLD CS1^^

Heres a video of the game by my favorite game reviewer.

I always think of Turmoil as basically a *Vertical Tempest* port. It has the same feel as my second favorite vector arcade game of all time, and executes extremely well. If you havent played it, youre missing out.

Oh, and I didnt tell my son I couldnt make it... he asked me if I could re-make it for the TI, and I said it might be tough, and there were other more capable programmers out there who might be better suited to do a re-make.

Get an Atari emulator and a set of sticks and give it a go. Youll like it. :)

Ohhhh, it is cool and faster.

I am preatty sure to have seen a TI99 similar version but in a slower XB not compiled... just that i don't remember the name, will try search it, could be a start point.

This seems kind of like a faster paced version of meltdown

I just looked in my Atari cartridge inventory.  Of 121 cartridges this is not one of them.

I got lucky a few years back and snagged it out of a dollar game bin at a local retro shop that was going out of business.

Close to my favorite 2600 game.... definitely top 5 or so.

I think the Vic 20 has a version and it is pretty good.

Tempest, I have serious doubts that game will ever be ported to the TI, even an F18A equipped one, or even if a Final FinalGROM is added to the mix.  Anyone who could pull off a full working port of that game would instantly rise to the status of TI-Godhood.

 

I've never played XB-Meltdown, I'll give it a shot later today (day off).  :-D

Thats what is great about Turmoil. The 2600 could not support Tempest, so Turmoil was made. It has a very similar feel and executes extremely well with the limitations of the platform.

It'd be cool, but I don't think the Ti can push graphics that fast.

I started writing Turmoil (in C) for ColecoVision.  I have a playable game...  No sounds.   Been a few years...

 

It just wasn't fun like that Atari version, so I stopped.  I can hunt down my source...  Maybe I still have it....

 

It was called Spaz Attack or Spaz Attak - I can't even find my posts in the CV chat here about it...

 

Edit: Don't think so.  I think it was lost when my Mac Bootcamp partition got killed by an upgrade of OSX and/or Parallels.

 

Lost a bunch of stuff..  I'll look at my archives, too, but my hopes are low.

It's been a while. Call me crazy, but I have gotten more into TI than Atari. I have stockpiled some really good games, like Alpiner and Parsec.

2600 Tempest :) It's not pretty, but it exists...

 

 

There's nothing really CPU pushy about Tempest - lots of lookup tables will save the day. ;)

That was how my wife spent her entire childhood making hot water to wash her hair, @HOME AUTOMATION. As an electronics tech, it made the hair on the back of my neck go up every time I saw her using it for that purpose. . .
