SO I THINK I've finally found my project: A port of Elevator Repairman.
I loved that game 20 years ago and I decided that I wanted to write a version for the 2600. My goal is to write a rock-solid 4K version of this and have it done by the end of the year. We'll see if that happens...
I also think a stripped down version is a good candidate for a 1K game; my plan is to work on that after the 4K version is done.
Here's what I've got so far:
Nothing too special: the elevators are the playfield and the sprite is actually both players on top of each other - player 0 is color-striped and player 1 is a single color - which, actually, won't work to exactly recreate the A8 sprite, but I'm planning to re-theme the game anyway, and create new graphics. Any ideas for a cool new theme? My best ideas so far are: Busy Bellhop, Manic Maid, and Maid's Mayhem.
