In Topic: New game port in the works: Laser Squad

Wed Oct 24, 2018 4:44 AM



I am just letting you know that there is new game port coming to Atari 8-bit: Laser Squad. Here are some screenshots:



Wow. This is basically X-Com: The prequel. I never have seen this game and I wasn't aware that such a mature strategic game even exists on any 8bit! 

Once ported this is truly a great contribution to the Atari 8bit platform. Keep up the good work!




In Topic: Scramble (5200 Conversion)

It's indeed a pretty decent arcade conversion to the Atari. 

Using a Sega Genesis gamepad this is just WOW.


These are so cheap nowadays to buy (Ebay). It makes me want more Aracde Atari games using the Sega gamepad!

Congrats Mapa and PG!


A lot visual "sugar" used in this production. Great work!

In Topic: Outlove 128 Bytes, released at Outline 2k18

My 128 bytes entry for Outline 2k18 can be found here:



Due to wrong Altirra config. by the organisers I had to put it in the Wild compo, but still happy with the result...



yep good one. I guess if I would try to program this scroller, my version would easily fill up 48 KB. At this point I would consider to switch off OS to gain some extra 10 KB or so :) 

I wonder how the approach works. First to make it run and then as small as possible? Or smallest possible right from the beginning?

In Topic: Gunship on Atari 8-Bit?

Tue Jun 19, 2018 4:29 AM

Nice find!!


Beside the question if a prototype exists or not ... Has anybody ever asked if it was a good game after all? I have never played any Gunship game on any platform. But let's say the C64 version would have been the closest thing to the Atari version. Was the C64 version a good game?


Now that we have spotted Atari heros converting C64 games (SCR)... well hypothetical ... would it be fun to play a "Gunship A8" if it would be available just like e.g SCR?
