    Atari 8-bit gaming - Check out the Gwobby website http://www.gwobby.webs.com and play the latest versions of * Gwobby's Adventure * Gorilla Warfare * MITE * Car Crash * Gwobby JR * Trolley Trouble * Flikin Football * and some of my other games from years past.

    Mainly gaming, still downloading tons of games to play on real hardware using APE. It's getting harder to find many classics but there are a few gems which make it fun.

    Current A8 projects:
    Now that Ramp Rage v1.2 is out there I'm looking at disassembling a commercial game and changing it a bit - all on the Atari. Checkout the programming forum for some related stuff.

    Worked with Matosimi on expanding his Xirius Defect game from abbuc 2013 to the XXL version - new version "X1" has a new level 73 the original one was probably impossible!

    Created "Micro Gwobby" (yes he's back!) for the 10 liner NOMAM 2014 contest. This rekindled my interest in Turbo Basic so I took a break from assembler and created "Gravity" which was a little game to support abbuc 2014 if my assembler project (Ramp Rage) wasn't ready in time.

    Keep on Koastin' - for the "Challenge: Write a game in Atari BASIC in 4K"/abbuc software contest 2012.
    Released the final version of my shoot'em-plat "Gwobby Strikes Back!"

    GSB was my first game in Turbo Basic and my first game with PMGs (well ones that move properly anyway). I finally mastered using player missile graphics thanks to the superb "Atari PMGs in BASIC" (by Philip C.Seyer) available on atariarchives.org

    2nd contacts for me are atariage members bluecat or Gwobby

  2. Nothing to do with me and probably little to none Atari stuff but I'm going to this on Saturday, might spend all the time on pac-man I'll be wearing my Pro(c) Atari Magazine Bosconian T-Shirt so say hello if anyone here does go >>> A retro gaming tournament is to be held at Peterborough United’s Weston Homes Stadium. The Double Jump Retro Gaming Tournament 2020 will be held at the ground in London Road on Saturday, February 29 from 11am to 5pm. If you were a whiz at Mario Kart, fiendishly unbeatable at Street Fighter or unstoppable at Pacman you can show off your skills and compete to win prizes and bragging rights. The event is free to attend with money being raised for mental health charity Mind. Organisers Suleiman and Jameella said: “We aim to create a day of fun and games along with a healthy competition with some superb prizes whilst bringing awareness and raising money to the Mind charity and showing that no matter how you feel, there is always support and community. “This is a family friendly event fit for everyone with any experience of gaming. Even if all you have ever played is the occasional Candy Crush it’s all good. It’s also a great chance to see games from the past, whether you played them and wish to revisit a trip down memory lane or even just to show your kids or other family members just how addictive and challenging bouncing a pixel around a square screen could be.” <<<
  3. Will update the tables later Vote for the next game: Round 4 Poll
  4. you can use that Quickshot Maverick right handed but the buttons are on the right side so it's a bit strange but I use it sometimes, it's much easier movement than other sticks I've updated the DK table with the recent scores and the season current standings, some of you got extra points due to the extra players!
  5. Welcome back a8isa1 I posted on the hsc survey main forum thread about the Quickshot Maverick, it's left handed but really easy to move, might be worth a try for anyone struggling with their hands. Anyone stuck on Mr Do! - try varying your strategies to learn more, pick one at a time - go for quick screens - go for max points on the fruits by getting sets - go for multiple kills for max points - my usual method is to go for extra lives pick up 2 letters per screen if you are doing well. The fall off with the apple happens if the apple was not centered enough from a previous move/spawn by the extra letter guy's guard ghosts. Just need the graphics/player animations doing so get cracking I'm working on a platformer for this years abbuc, slow progress recently but it's still ticking over...
  6. Round 4 Poll Another batch of some of the best games that will survive a single HSC round on their own. Remember to check all the ones you like before clicking the vote button!

Add your favourites to the Season 17 Welcome and Games Suggestions thread. Multi-pick polls this season so vote for as many or as few as you wish, the winning game will be played and the runner up(s) are re-polled next time.

  7. Welcome to chevymad I had a decent scene 20 go today but the pressure got to me!

  8. Had a long Mr Do! Session today and was wondering how I managed to reach Scene 23 the other day but I stuck with it and got to 31 - the game really adds the pressure from 23 onwards 397,100 not quite enough to claim top spot
  9. Try one of the ATR versions - atarionline.pl or vjetnam archive OK I couldn't wait... now who's that in the top spot?!

  10. Thanks for that M, i've been unusually busy recently so I get it, one good game is enough for most people - if we carry on getting this good level of support then using my HSC crystal ball it will result in more classic/big games that will be enough on their own, if I think a game is not enough I'll poll it along with a bonus game or two smaller games as an option. The newer games will struggle to get in but we played a lot of them over recent seasons. We can have one tournament later in the season, I've already got the killer idea for that one
  11. OK here's the first current standings of season 17! New for me to also get wrong this season the rounds "played" column! If I missed you out (usually Sikor's scores) or got your scores wrong (look like it will be RedThunder who this will happen to) misspelled your name (I already had the "n" missing from Manterola but my money's on Magamavision2000) or mixed up slx with skr then let me know Season 17 Current Standings - after 2 rounds If you missed rounds 1 or 2 post a late score and join in on current round. tied places broken by wins, then points from last round Pos.

  12. No problems with movement, controls or crashing here! I even had to dig out my ancient parchment and un-hack my disk to go back to the default number of lives!! 40,700 on my first go, we'll first go after pressing R to make it right handed joystick then got my mrdojo on and reached scene 23 - 319,500 probably too many extra lives will make the game a bit easy for some - if anyone equals fandals 1m retiried score they will claim (share) the win. No good time for stages 1-3: 59+47+53s ! Really wanted to add Mr Do's Castle as a bonus but will add it to another poll later in the season. First table tomorrow
  13. I should have added the tips might be a bit of a spoiler so I'd recommend enjoying the game and work things out yourselves first! The bonus challenge is meant to be played as part of normal games - not just restarting to beat it. If anyone gets a Diamond then it will end the stage immediately (I think) so anyone can win this one.
  14. Trying to hold off on the bonus games but we might round up some new ones later in the season, but check it out guys and give them some feedback I've added a bonus challenge "Fastest Time for Stages 1-3" and a bunch of Mr Do! Tips from HSC's past to the first post.
  15. This one has a good feel to it "Space Invaders Edition 2008" by STJack, but the gameplay needs more work
