It's finished, very finished...  :D  

I'll have to ask if they want to share the source.  Might take some time to get through to them though.

Tempest


Is this something that already exists for one of the Atari computer systems, or something completely new to the Atari 8 bit world?

This is great news; it means that we can all look forward to future releases of Liberator, Elevator Action, and Black Widow on cart for the 8-bits. Right? Right? :)

My guess: It's gotta be Arabian *crosses fingers*

Hmm I don't think so..Although I would love to see that too, like Kangaroo, Arabian was some Jap game that Atari licensed later. Of course this didn't stop the ads and articles of the time from saying "NEW FROM THE VIDEOGAME WIZARDS OF ATARI!!" or something like that :lol:

My guesses would fall on these games: Red Baron, Major Havoc, Black Widow, or I Robot. Am I close? :D

I Robot.  Am I close? :D


I think everyone would love to see this, but can the 5200/A8 do polygons?

I took the initial hint to mean that the game would be a platformer; what else could have rivalled DK on the CV? :ponder:

I'll go out on a limb for my last guesses:

1. Marble Madness.
It's strange that this was never ported to the A8...

2. Road Runner
Would have fit in with the 5200 catalogue that Time/Warner was
developing.

3. Tomcat
Just because I've never heard any whispers about this game, period...

I'll throw a couple out there, although I very much doubt any of these are the game:

Smash TV
Shinobi
Tower of Druaga

I think the amount of cool stuff at PC5 has reached a limit.

I don't think there is room for any more. :D

Since everyone is so keen to guess the name of the game, we've decided to make a contest of it. Check it out:

I note with interest that no one has yet put in a guess for Gravitar. ;)
