X vs. O

Sign in to follow this  


Have you ever began working on a game without an idea? That's what I'm trying to do right now. The idea of a letter X fighting a group of letter Os began as an idea for the ActionMax where you shoot Os. But then I lost the program that I was making ActionMax games on. Then I got it back, but I didn't feel like making an ActionMax game. So I began to make a title screen for the Atari 2600 for a game with no idea. It has to be in color because the writing for the playfield has to be in color because of the timing of the game will not let me add code to change it to b&w where I want it to be.


So it's in color. It's changing colors in a color cycle. The background color changes color every 4 seconds or so. I had a horrible time trying to get the scanline count a steady 262, but I think I did it now. Here is a picture of my title screen.


I measured the lettering to make sure it is centered. But I don't know what to do. I want to make an Outlaw-type game, but Outlaw has already been made. Is there a one-player vs. computer version? Perhaps I can do that if not. I mean, who has an extra friend to play with, anyway? I know I don't. I have 1,411 bytes left in a 2k game.
