  1. Unfortunately I have not the skills to program such good games. @gorgh is the coder, tunes are by Caruso, @Kaz atarionline.pl gave some ideas and @Duddie made and sells the package.
  2. Nowadays it's rare for me to finish a game but during last holidays I finished The Rescue Expedition. I really enjoyed it. It's a very good game with some unique features. First of all the rope, you can freely throw it to the ceiling and swing, climb up or ride down, with nice physics. The second feature I'd like to mention is dynamic illumination, based on player's position (check out picture 2 and 3). Not unique but inusual for a game of this genre is the fact chambers elements are randomly generated: platforms, enemies, traps, treasures position change every time the game boots up. Collectors will love the (nice price) package. Video: https://youtu.be/REzqxFKFAVA
  3. I can confirm that latest 1.6 version works on my stock 1050 disk drive!
  4. At last I have the time to play the game. Cart autosave feature is very useful.
  5. Clown, converted from a famous Amiga image (25 colors) Philsan_Amiga_Clown.xex
  6. Snowfall Atari Snowfall Atari (2019)(Philsan).xex - compiled Turbo-Basic XL - 160x96 pixels image edited and converted using Atari Graphics Studio program by Tebe - RMT player by Raster, adapted for TBXL by Marok - original Atari Basic snowfall code (80x48 pixels) by Fred Key (1986) - Depeche Mode Little 15 tune by Jakub Husak (2010) - packed by Homesoft
  7. If I am not wrong my contributions (NewTek Demo and Snowfall Atari) were already reset compliant. Can you confirm so I know which files to keep?
  8. Not the most iconic Atari or A8 character, but he deserves to be mentioned.
  9. Hi Sebastian! It's good to hear you here again! I am not an hardware guy therefore I cannot give you techical advices. At the moment a very good cart is AVGCart. It would be nice if Side3 had its features. Perhaps the ones missing on Side2 are - CAR and limited ATR compatibility (without U1MB installed). - two buttons (for reset and disk swap) AVGCart has an excellent loader with search functions too.
  10. Borek in Ascii World is a little previously unreleased jewel, published on Atarionline.pl forum, programmed in a few hours during Pixel Crunch! 8bit Game Jam Edition held in Warsaw on 20/21 May 2019.

  11. Do you mean Atari 8 or Atari in general?
  12. Bruce Lee sprite was born on A8, but he's on C64 too.
  13. Mines, a 10-liner Atari Basic strategy game by Fabrizio Caruso BAS, ATR and XEX versions: Mines (2019)(Fabrizio Caruso).bas Mines (2019)(Fabrizio Caruso)(b).atr Mines (2019)(Fabrizio Caruso).xex From .info file - Atari Basic 10-liner strategy game - game available for many platforms (github.com/Fabrizio-Caruso/mines) Instructions: You are in a minefield where mines appear both - under your feet once you move and - around you (more if you do not move) You can clear the area around you with anti-mine charges but you can only carry a maximum of 9. If you reach a "$" item you get an extra anti-mine charge. The field has upper and lower borders that kill you if reached. Left and right borders wrap around. The rate of mines appearing around you increases continuously. Goals: - reach the highest score possible by walking on empty positions or collecting charges "$" - avoid stepping on mines or the upper and lower borders - reach the next 100 points to get a full recharge of your anti-mine charges Score: - walk into an empty position: 1 point - walk into an anti-mine charge "$": 5 points Controls: - use I J K L keys to move - use SPACE bar to clear nearby area (if you have enough charges)
