    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

  5. and you definitely were jumping down and diagonal off the first platform or it just ran out of time - the hose hit the diaper (on the status bar) before you got there? I think you've hit the nail on the head - probably becomes a risk it if you have a life or two spare but I always went for them, I guess the better you get the more annoying it would be to lose a man because of this. Could do with being a rarer event probably down to some bias in Atari's random function! ok final tables next as I catch up with things here...
  6. BEEF 'N BEER We'll spice up the game play for this round and put on a few HSC pounds by tossing in a few extra burgers too. Some extended play time so 3 week Round (with the first week overlapping R14 Busy Baby): Round ends Sun 19th Sept 10am UK time. Scoring TBA. Have fun! Beef Drop Note there are two versions - check the title screen shows Feb 2005, the .com file on atarimania is ok Info on codes: https://a8.fandal.cz/detail.php?files_id=4656 (Beer Belly Burt in) Brew Biz it's a 3 stage, 32 screen Frank Cohen Platformer! trbb "If you think the Fat B£$%ard is hard to control just wait 'til you get him in the pool Seriously Brew Biz is an underrated game (not played it much before) but it's the same engine as Olllie's Follies and Ghostchaser. Lots of nice touches like the choice of starting areas, being able to duck, you can influence the movement of some lifts by moving down (and sometimes up).." atarimania instructions & ATR fandal XEX https://a8.fandal.cz/detail.php?files_id=1474 BONUS GAMES Beer Shot "+" I created the plus version last time we played: run BEERPLUS.BAS from the ATR disk image (B on the menu).

  9. That plus the long music delay for restart was probably why I passed the game over before - but now we know it's jump down diagonally (and we don't fall off so much) then it's much more fun I'ts a two way slug out in the ROUND 15 POLL !
  10. stay in the middle of the platform vertically, keep the stick held/ keep walking right all the time, then pull down/up to make the diagonal and keep held and press fire to jump. Jump after the middle of the squares or on the edges for the tighter bits, A and B are good to practice on. IF ANYONE CAN'T COMPLETE A AND B THEN PRESS OPTION WHEN THE MUSIC PLAYS AT THE START OF YOUR GO AND DISABLE THE STORK DROPPINGS ROUND 15 >>>POLL OPEN<<<
  11. Pulled a few choices out of the HSC bag to keep things interesting with ESC's HiJack! being PAL only and the only game not played here before! Poll ends after current round, bonus game suggestions welcome as always Gorf https://a8.fandal.cz/detail.php?files_id=1928 Beef Drop https://a8.fandal.cz/detail.php?files_id=4656 HIJack! https://a8.fandal.cz/detail.php?files_id=2035 Kangaroo https://a8.fandal.cz/detail.php?files_id=2182 Arex https://a8.fandal.cz/detail.php?files_id=1270
