The first three COLOR releases from Opcode Games are now available in the AtariAge Store! They are:
Rebooteroids is a new take on an arcade classic for the Atari Jaguar. In development for over six years, Rebooteroids is now available for purchase! Rebooteroids features 100 unique levels, plus 10 'kombateroids' levels for multiplayer head to head. You can choose from five gameplay modes, including a 'skirmish mode' whereby randomly generated levels of increasing difficulty challenge the player. Enjoy the original soundtrack by 505 and MSG/reservoir gods while you fight your way through each wave.
You pilot the EWS, a small, highly maneuverable test ship equipped with a basic rapid-fire cannon. Your test ship is also fitted with a state of the art Hyperspace Engine which, if it was working, would be capable of jumping the craft vast distances. However, due to damage, it currently only has the ability to jump short range, and without a navigation lock you have no way of knowing where you will pop back into normal space.
Use your controller to rotate the EWS left and right, thrust to avoid colliding with objects, and most importantly, fire to blast everything in sight! Collect bonus power-ups to increase your odds of survival. Every five waves (in Arcade mode) you'll enter a bonus round, where you have the opportunity to earn an extra life. Your high scores are saved to the cart, and you can also share them online.
Rebooteroids is packed into a 4MB cartridge and includes a high-quality box and 20-page manual. Please visit the AtariAge Store to purchase a copy today!
It's Halloween Night and your girlfriend has been kidnapped by an evil wizard who wants to lump her into his undead bride! Armed with an unlimited supply of axes, you set out to rescue her, but you'll have to face hordes of skeletons, ghosts and green-skinned monsters!
You must kill them all in order to progress towards the wizard's castle! Can you save your love? This is one halloween night you'll never forget!
We've just added 100 boxed copies of Daniel Bienvenu's Jeepers Creepers to the store! Your goal is to save your girlfriend who is being held prisoner in an evil wizard's castle. To do this youll have to blast your way through four levels of oncoming hordes of monsters. If you'd like a boxed copy of Jeeepers Creepers, don't delay, as we won't be producing more boxed copies of this game in the future!
While testing ColecoVision consoles today for the Portland Retro Gaming Expo, I came across one that is not working properly. Upon power-up, I just see scrambled graphics. The game seems to be running fine, just the graphics are screwed up. Sometimes the screen gets completely skewed (shown in the second picture), but reverts back to a normal screen with garbled graphics..
This system has been modified with s-video, composite, and audio outputs. I have not pulled it completely apart yet, as I'm not sure it's something I can fix.
This year I'll have some uses for computer flat-panel displays. I need one that has an HDMI port that will be used to demo Crispy's Walkman-sized FPGA-based Atari 2600. I need two others to connect to F18A-evolved ColecoVision systems, so those displays will need VGA connectors. Displays larger than 20" would be ideal.
