#3840917 "Space Game" WIP

Posted by Gray Defender on Mon Sep 4, 2017 2:18 PM

Your game is shaping up to be awesome.   I does seem to remind me a little bit of a few different games like megamania or demon attack.   I don't see any problem with it being named Space Game.   I love the title screen and music, sort of reminds me of the old Prince of Persia theme song.  As has been mentioned the intermissions are a nice touch as well.  There also appears to be an intermission mini-game and intermission music.  I love the star field simulation which precedes the wave starts.  I have yet to learn all the power ups, which is part of the fun, to know which ones are the best ones.  I love the random enemy movements.  Lots of attention to detail.

Excerpt from my YT review:

"The games programmer, Howard Scott Warshaw, was impressively able to design, program, get sign off from Steven Spielberg on the completed project, all in a time span of just five weeks.  It contained the first sanctioned video game Easter egg, meaning permission was granted before inserting it into the game. This game also contains one of the earliest examples of in game product placements, Reese's pieces.  ET is a single player game.


I am pretty sure I received this game for Christmas that year.  At the time it really didn’t matter to me how good or bad the game was, I had the ET game and I was a happy camper.  Atari produced over five million copies of this game"

I certainly thought Nukey Shays, Pac-Man 8k was a HACK.


In fact I dug up my review from my onenote and would like to share it with you guys here.  Let me know what you think...

#3707365 Introducing GPAC Dementia Defender for the Commodore 64

Posted by Gray Defender on Tue Feb 28, 2017 7:32 AM

Thank you, very nice to hear.  Does that mean you received your physical copy?  I am leaning towards not yet...


FYI, someone notified me on my channel today that someone has already "cracked" my game adding a cracktro and trainer.




I checked it out, they seemed to do a pretty good job of it.  I am flattered.  I had checked out that site to try to distribute GPAC but couldn't figure out who to contact.


Anyway that's pretty fast for only being released for something like three days.

Hello everyone, I am proud to say I have completed development on my Pac-Clone game.  It has been a great learning experience, and I had a lot of fun doing it.


Gameplay and announcement video here:



I still have two or three more videos covering the development yet to be released but coming soon on youtube.com/graydefender


If anyone is interested as of the time of this posting there are 5 (five) physical copies up for grabs.  Send me an email at graydefender@outlook.com if you would like a boxed copy.


Thank you for your support!

Great video!  I am sooo jealous.  I would pay good money to own one of these devices.

Recently, one of my coworkers gave me this diamond in the rough.  I thought it would be neat to try to clean it up and see if it was still working.

#3599392 10-Print Book Atari VCS/2600 ROM and Source Code find!

Posted by Gray Defender on Thu Sep 22, 2016 7:12 AM

Thank you, Mr. SQL!  I appreciate it. Yeah the link that I provided has a couple of different VCS ROMs to try out + source code for VCS and Mac.  The book is really nicely done but I can see where it would have a fairly limited audience.  As for the Pac-Clone video series, I really hope some people find it useful.  I have been enjoying creating the videos as I go.  I really am taking my time with it and am learning a lot of techniques along the way.  The creator of CBM prg studio, Arthur Jordinson, has been extremely helpful and supportive as well.  He would often times have issues already fixed that I came across and provide me with beta versions.  How cool is that!

#3596979 10-Print Book Atari VCS/2600 ROM and Source Code find!

Posted by Gray Defender on Sun Sep 18, 2016 3:00 PM

I recently completed reading the "10 Print" book which has a chapter on the Atari VCS.  I was interested in trying out the code but could not find it anywhere online.


One of the books authors Ian Bogost, has shared the code on his website ( http://bogost.com/do...Print-Atari.zip) and I thought I would share it here.


One thing to note if you download and try out the ROM:  The screen will remain black until you press Game Reset at which point the program executes.


Below is my review of the book.  In the mean time if you have read "10 Print", I'd be interested to hear your thoughts on it.
