Which is better Galaxian OR Galactic Chase? find out in the 8-bit high score club - EVERYONE WELCOME TO PLAY! Updated 19 Apr · 0 comments

About Me

I've been using my Atari 130XE for many years... having yet another crack at Assembler programming with my new MAC/65 cart so I'm reading a lot of posts in the programming forum! Looking to create a simple scrolling game of some sort. If anyone needs any help with Atari gaming or BASIC programming send me a messsage.

Having great fun playing classic & new games in the 8-bit High Score Club here on atariage. New players and emulator users welcome too (checkout the beginners guide post)

Recently created "Keep on Koastin'" for the 'write a 4K game in atari basic challenge'. I entered the (fantastic!) "Gwobby Strikes Back!" Into the abbuc software contest 2010 [Last Place -DOH!] released a much improved final version (1.2) April 2011 details here

Previous releases were a platform game 'Gorilla Warfare', and "Gwobby's Adventure" which I am very pleased with. It's a better overall game than GW with an original theme. Download my other BASIC games; some good CarCrash, MITE, Bouncing Boneheads, Flicking Footballs... and some (lots) that are bad, from the site's "Kendallsoft Klassics Tab".
Checkout my games on the Gwobby web site

I'm interested in buying the following:

An NTSC 800XL (or 800XE perhaps) I am in the UK.

Any A.n.a.l.o.g or Antic magazines - preferably a bunch of the early ones (would need postage quote to the UK) :ponder:

    Atari 8-bit gaming - Check out the Gwobby website http://www.gwobby.webs.com and play the latest versions of * Gwobby's Adventure * Gorilla Warfare * MITE * Car Crash * Gwobby JR * Trolley Trouble * Flikin Football * and some of my other games from years past.

    Mainly gaming, still downloading tons of games to play on real hardware using APE. It's getting harder to find many classics but there are a few gems which make it fun.

    Current A8 projects:
    Still periodically programming my 1st assembler game (MAC/65 cart)for abbuc software contest 201...?! if you want to help with sound or graphics get in touch.

    Worked with Matosimi on expanding his Xirius Defect game from abbuc 2013 to the XXL version. Created "Micro Gwobby" (yes he's back!) for the 10 liner NOMAM 2014 contest. This rekindled my interest in Turbo Basic so I took a break from assembler and created "Gravity" which will be a little game to support abbuc 2014

    Previously:
    Keep on Koastin' - for the "Challenge: Write a game in Atari BASIC in 4K". Entered into the abbuc software contest 2012 too.
    Released the final version of my shoot'em-plat game "Gwobby Strikes Back!"

    GSB was my first game in Turbo Basic and my first game with PMGs (well ones that move properly anyway). I finally mastered using player missile graphics thanks to the superb "Atari PMGs in BASIC" (by Philip C Seyer) available on atariarchives.org
