What finished homebrews are out there that are 2K in size?  It is immensely challenging to fit a complete game in 2K, so I'm curious to see what others have accomplished.  The only example that comes to mind is SpiceWare's Collect tutorial.

Wow, 1K games...I can barely draw the screen with 1K, much less fit game logic.   :-o

 

Edit: of course, I suppose those are gigantic compared to RAM Pong.   :-D

I made a game called Tornado Blast re-using the cut down kernel from Gate Racer.

I also took it as a personal challenge to re-create SpiceWares assembly tutorial 2k game in batari BASIC.  Named it CollectbB.

There used to be a minigame compo with 1k, 2k, and 4k categories that a lot of people from AA participated in.  It was open to all platforms, so you were up against computers and other consoles.

 

I participated a few times.  Pirate (bB), but it was 4k.

 

Star Hawk (2k bB game)

Bifröst (It was 2k (asm) at the time, but is 4k now.  It's more or less the exact same game, just has the speech sample now).

My game called "Explosive Diarrhea" and another one someone else did called "Muncher" are both 2k. Also, my celery game which 10 copies of were sold is 2k too.

I forgot to mention Dot, that's a really nice collection, 9 games within 16K.
