  1. Here you are ... The pyramid moves closer and closer (many times) in each phase, and there are 5 phases. The background colors are changed when the game "rolls over" (going back to phase 1 - and probably with added difficulty).
  2. Just a note. I think the TI version was based on the earlier incarnation (se picture below) rather than the later (redesigned) C64 version (same company and same cover art). https://www.mobygames.com/game/aztec-challenge/screenshots https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Aztec_Challenge

  4. Sometimes I find the Daily News from The Code Project both funny and disturbing, especially one from June 4th ... ref.: https://www.codeproject.com/script/Mailouts/View.aspx?mlid=14381 Industry News Facebook argues it didn’t violate users’ privacy rights and thinks there’s no expectation of privacy because there is no privacy on social media Well, that settles that, doesn't it?

  5. That's one way to go, though I think it may "feel" a bit awkward. I see 3 other possibilities, of which I have 2 on my list - and definitely being Qix based games. The one I'm not going to use, is a simulated "multicolor" variant, effectively having a 4 pixel resolution in both directions. The Qix - the stick lines - may be handled with sprites, Sparks may be handled in the background graphics (pulsating) etc.
  6. Very nice. Good addition. Limited supply of dynamite, - which is fine.
  7. Gotta love Yamaha and that chip (should be backward compatible with the 9918A and looking mighty fine). Only problem is, with my path, the next level is the Amiga OCS (Original Chip Set) - even letting down the C64.
  8. Qix is on my list. And yes, graphically there's has to be made a few shortcuts. Omega Race is not on my list (yet). It was the best game for me on the VIC-20 (while I had one). Maybe a more true version could be made with the F18A. I'm sticking with the 9918A though.
  9. Very nice. Version 2 is so much better. First run I could only get to 1 gold. Second run 21.
