    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 on Post#2 @fakecortex re autofire it was using joysticks with it inbuilt (they have a hardware switch)
  2. OK had some Atari time, there will be some cuts to this round, will update first post momentarilly! Proposed Scrap List: Chicken - not very exciting, found a basic game version that had less time but still not much happening, Annphibian - not very exciting unless anyone can find some merits? Hazard play all 4 runs Equestrian - play 1-1 and 2-2 only Bug Off! much better than I remembered - control-1 will pause and resume. Pulse the fire button if fires a batch of shots increasing as the game goes on so autofire not needed! Whomper Stomper good Hover Bovver good (not played) EVERYONE - Extra players will pick you up bonus points. Whomper is a good one for all ages. If anyone has any other suggestions esp a nice BASIC game fire away and we can add them in to keep it interesting. I considered and rejected Picnic Paranoia, Up Up and Away, Greener than you think (all HSC played before)!! G Goin
  3. that might be the original unfixed listing from atarimania? try fandal's xex one please let me know (anyone) if anyone has the patched version also (see comments on atarimania)
  4. The people have spoken!!! The great outdoors wins by a neck

The Great Outdoors Tourney Tables Hover Bovver Deteacher 36,487 trbb 15,371 carlsson 10,707 8BIT1337 1,650 RedThunder 396 Hazzard Run Play all 4 courses (not random run) Chicken Run Tron04 43,269* devwebcl 42,500 carlsson 41,258 Deteacher 38,864 8BIT1337 37,968 trbb 37,822 * 47093 score looks quite high and when I achieved this I had this "car jumps over the water" scene twice in a row with car driving full speed). Probably some glitch in the game engine... score without the glitch on a perfect run another time (no braking).

  6. The Great Outdoors We'll tale a break from regular action and launch into a tournament, play each game or as many as you wish and post scores. I've picked a bunch of reasonable ones, typically 6 out of 10ers, fairly quick plays - I've added some comments (from memory!). Not sure if they all work on NTSC and suggestions welcome for game settings etc. Round provisionally ends on Sunday 20th June 10am UK time Download the games from fandal or atarionline.pl or atarimania Catch-up If anyone missed rounds 1-9 post late scores on the threds like AtariSphinx has done for Qix and I'll sort it all out at the end of this round (future trbb will not like that eh?!) Hover Bovver I'll just nip and borrow McKong's... yes plough through the flower beds and see how you get on. Tricky at first but great fun so bear with it. Keep stick held and wait for momentum to build, use the hedges to keep the dog away, press fire to lure it but use it sparingly. Hazard Run New to HSC I think, some crazy action here, again a bit tricky but fun, play on each of the four courses (not random run). Whomper Stomper Crazy ant stomping fun. Rope in a 2nd player for a bonus point. Fairly easy. Bug Off! Tempting as it is to allow autofire, we will play with NO AUTOFIRE!!! Insane of course so don't break your joysticks. New to HSC! Little uns can use autofire if they want to play control-1 will pause and resume. Pulse the fire button if fires a batch of shots increasing as the game goes on so autofire not needed! Equestrian A more than decent game, adjust speed using diagonals, slow before fence then speed over it press fire to jump and steer when jumping. Play Horse 1 Course 1, Horse 2 Course 2 only. Dropped Annphibian BASIC BONUS GAME: CHICKEN (Stan Ockers) HAVE FUN!
  7. Congratulations to Deteacher (he's probably still playing!!) for a Captain's performance AtariSphinx takes runner up spot. Thanks for playing guys, let me know if I missed anyone. Next round will start soon. Not sure what others think but I think the more reliable punching makes the game less tense than the original where I cower if I have to do it! Like the new graphics and animation but it's slighly premature toot toot on PAL at the end of the round. final tables POPEYE ARCADE 1st Deteacher (19240) 652,430 13pts # 2nd AtariSphinx 389,280 11pts 3rd McKong 143,310 10pts 4th graywest 115,020 9pts 5th therealbountybob 113,900 9pts 6th Mr Trust 112,630 8pts 7th tompateus 103,840 8pts 8th 8BIT 1337 90,120 7pts 9th Tron04 72,730 7pts 10th fakecortex 63,700 6pts 11th roadrunner 37,870 5pts 12th Sikor 22,660 4pts 13th RedThunder 20,490 3pts 14th jblenkle 19,960 2pts 15th carlsson 16,200 2pts # includes top NTSC score bonus point
  8. Welcome Tron04 and thanks for voting too Final tables in a minute or two then we'll fire up round 10
  9. Yes suggestions good. Looking for some unusual ones and a BASIC game too. When the round starts at some point tomorrow I'll sure I'll come up with something! VOTES EVERYONE PLEASE!!
  10. Usually I bag Brutus at the start for the big bonus. Stay at the top, go in and out from each side collecting 1 note rarely need to go down below, avoid any punching! Use the spinach if in trouble or at some point!
  11. EXTENDING this round until TUESDAY 1st June 4PM UK time. Votes please everyone >>>ROUND 10 POLL<<<
  12. Updated with a Platter of Precious Pole Position Points! Please check the final table on PP to see if I missed anything
