    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

  1. First Tables We'll make this tournament scoring for all games 1pt per place (might change!) for FIREFLEET please say where you got to on the video playthrough on post 17 and we can use this for the table Jet Boot Jack 1st therealbountybob 172,300 6 2nd McKong 93,250 5 3rd Deteacher 7,050 4 4th RedThunder 6,150 3 5th slx 5,675 2 6th carlsson 1,800 1 Captain Sticky's Gold 1st therealbountybob 6,130 6 2nd McKong 3,730 5 3rd Deteacher 2,630 4 4th carlsson 890 3 5th slx 780 2 6th RedThunder 310 1 Dan Strikes Back 1st therealbountybob 22,540 5 2nd Deteacher 2,630 4 3rd RedThunder 2,600 3 4th slx 2,140 2 5th carlsson 2,060 1 Hyperblast! 1st therealbountybob 6,560 6 2nd Sikor 5,620 5 3rd Deteacher 4,740 4 4th RedThunder 2,840 3 5th carlsson 1,380 2 6th slx 1,040 1 FireFleet 1st McKong 3m16s 150,000 6 2nd therealbountybob 109,820 5 3rd RedThunder 22,280 4 4th Deteacher 8,080 3 5th carlsson 7,920 2 6th slx 7,390 1
  2. CSG 6,130 (1-6) DSB 21,580 22,540 nearly got all the side doors done! JBJ 172,300 (3-6) you can check the stage by the number of bugs on screen.
  3. Had a quick look at FireFleet with a sector editor (didn't disassemble it) and blatted what I thought was some map data and yes it caused a hole, so might be able to identify uber hard bit if we get that far. 109,820 Reached just before the join on the coloured squares, need to get left in the gap to clear the squares ahead. Dan Strikes Back 3,160 11,130 17,680 got to the 5th of the 6 screens the one with the side doors, didn't last long here! Hyperblast! 6,560 hopefully this button mashing will clear out the firebutton on my quickshot so it works properly again! Capt. Sticky (1-5) 4,410
  4. Fish Blasting Fun! Added a bonus challenge for FireFleet - highest score on 1st man. I'm planning to disassemble this game and see if I can fix that tricky bit, but, still busy with Block on Legs:First Steps, now up to 20 levels but it takes a lot of time tuning them and still annoying bug with the repositioning the man when he falls off! Movement is much better now and game is fun. @RT will be a final doc update when I'm done
  5. Wonder if that's the disk copy of the game and it saves hscs? Yes I really like CSG too Liking the small section screenshots slx You just have to play again to see it! Played JBJ 1-1 through to skill 3-1 score 125,700 and CSG had a few goes reached 1-4 score 3,780 was my best so far. On the last go I had one fish left so I thought I'd be ok and you can guess the rest! Anyone looking to pause the game it's Ctrl-1 ! Firefleet - we'd better grab screenshots of how far we got to as scoring is flawed.
  6. English Software's Smash Hits - Volume 1 I love it when a plan comes together... to celebrate the return of PRO(C) ATARI MAGAZINE which has a review of these games by your's truly we have an extended HSC round. Please support the magazine and buy the T-Shirt and Magazine package if you can to support the cause. My order is placed! Fandal has XEX versions of the games: Jet Boot Jack, Firefleet, Dan Strikes Back, Captain Sticky's Gold, Hyperblast Atarimania has Info on the games Jet Boot Jack - start on Skill 1 or P (has no creatures) if you find that too difficult. Firefleet - still has that incredibly hard bit so I don't expect anyone to finish it. Grab screenshot of how far you get as scoring is flawed. Bonus Challenge - highest score on first man, Dan Strikes Back - is completable. Captain Stick'y Gold - great game. Ctrl-1 is pause. Hyperblast - no autofire unless you have hand trouble (please say when posting if you used autofire) Scoring to follow, possibly JBJ as the main game and the others as bonuses. Round ends Thursday 31st October 10am UK time, Halloween no less! Everyone welcome to play!
  7. Congratulations to myself (remember I am now officially "great"!) for the win on Pastfinder and to RedThunder for Pathfinder. Pastfinder is perhaps a bit hard for the odd go but Pathfinder is the opposite, worth a go at least. Thanks for playing everyone final tables PASTFINDER 1st Cosmic Hopper therealbountybob 312,705 13pts* 2nd Super Explorer McKong 244,945 11pts 3rd Space Cowboy Deteacher 48,490 10pts 4th Raw Recruit RedThunder 7,880 9pts 5th Raw Recruit carlsson 6,690 8pts 6th Raw Recruit slx 4,685 7pts 7th Raw Recruit jblenkle 3,095 6pts 8th Raw Recruit Mangia-Boy 3,090 5pts 9th Raw Recruit Sikor 2,025 4pts *1pt bonus for most delivered: trbb 308 PATHFINDER - 1pt per Level reached - (points from start level) 1st RedThunder 39,593,528 12pts 2nd therealbountybob 20,047,869 8pts 3rd Deteacher 3,446,383 2pts 4th carlsson 2,008,410 2pts 5th Sikor 209,103 1pt 6th slx 88,784 1pt UPDATED: Season 16 Current Standings
  8. Ok looks like we have a winner! Will start the new round in the morning :)
  9. Don't get a job as a postman Had a seriously long joystick creaking session yesterday sort of retired in the end as after what I think is the top rating at 200 (250?) delivered it confirms that I am officially "great" ! I decided to end the game by trying to reach the top of the map but I was playing for ages with no scrambler. Would still like to know if the game map resets for another bonuis if you do get to the top or if there is another section or anything? Final Score 312,705 with 308 delivered "COSMIC HOPPER" The solid wall bit was fun and you could just treak your jumps to get over it, the hurdle ones were fairly tricky but the expando walls were hardest and finished me.
  10. wow, VladR's offer is very kind. when I talked about your predicament with some friends one mentioned there is a web site called fiverr.com (with 2 "r" s) where you might get some (low paid) small tasks. I know things are difficult but try and get the teeth fixed as soon as you can, dental (bacteral) infection can damage the entire body / heart etc. Not that you don't have enought to worry about. Another question is what sort of work have you done before / what skills do you have? It might help when sending donations on paypal to put some comments emphasising this is a gift, not just ticking the box.
  11. LOL just when I thought I'd got things here under control this is released: https://atariage.com/forums/topic/296869-new-game-released-jet-set-willy-2019/ So do we want to hit Jet Set Willy 2019 next instead or wait for it's NTSC version to be released and then play it - McKong do you think you can hold off playing it?!!! Then my game Block on Legs: First Steps can be released after the abbuc compo so thats near the end of Oct too!
  12. Keep your speed up on PASTfinder folks (one big hop) then you can cruise, stay alive more than trying to kill stuff, remember the idea of the game is to collect the discs (hmm I used a c) and deliver them to the places marked on the maps. PATHfinder I started on level 11 but I am really too careless when tacking the fires, seems if you end up too far away from the restart point you are in trouble - not sure if the nuke is randomly positioned / moves or he tends to be further away as the levels go on... over to RT for his reportage Gives me time for another mega Pastfinder session, I've been failing to make progress!
  13. Hi Jose, i did try and email you (yahoo) can you confirm the paypal address is "[email protected]" or does it need the www. at the start? [SENT by PAYPAL without the www. !] I had been pondering on what to do with my abbuc prize money from last year and wanted to keep it in the Atari community so this is the answer
  14. We'll extend this round and the poll until Tuesday 8th October 10pm UK Time. This should give everone time to get a bit further with PASTfinder , PATHfinder is worth a play too: if players haven't much time after working out what to do on level 0, restart on level 10 or so for a more challenging experience! Round 18 POLL OPEN
  15. abbuc mag arrived in the post today! Boy is it a long time since the deadline for entering the games and the voting! Yes I know copying the disks and organising everything! I now have 15 levels for Block on Legs, will try and get this to 20 for the "final" update :)
