BUCK ROGERS

Recently played Buck Rogers on the Retron 77 and enjoyed it, but said to myself the same thing I've said over the years "If only Buck Rogers had a Thunderfighter like in the 1980s TV show.   OH WAIT... I sprite hack now!:D

 

I'll try to make other adjustments, but so far the fonts and the ship are designed to match the show with Gil Gerard.

 

Shame Twiki can't make an appearance.  ;)

Haven't had this much fun since I worked on the C=64 version of Bubsy.

Uploaded 02 which has

* The "Buck Rogers" on the intro screen and part of my tinkering of a picture, obviously in the works.

* In game Thunderfighter sprites are more developed.

Had a lot of fun recently.  Somewhere between operating a 1980's Buck Rogers Thunderfighter/Starfighter and some Def Leopard music kicking in my Cybermorph training I got to around level 8 and the score you see below.   Need to finish this hack for sure.  :D

This is cool!  Simple but a nice hack to tie the game to the TV show.  :)

This game is coming back into the radar for me.  Created version 3 tonight where I changed the intro screen from the thunderfighter picture to "Buck Rogers in the 25th Century".   See what more I can change to have this match the look of the show like the enemies and stargates.

We are in a new year, and I am slowly adding improvements.   In version 4 we have the enemy fighters designed more like the hatchet Draconian fighters.   More changes to come in 2019.

 

(Also plan on looking into the Atari 800/5200 versions too in this year)

I thought about doing this at one time.  Awesome.  Just need Draconion Marauders as enemies.

Thought Hatchet fighters was another name for the Marauders.   Or they used the same model.
