(See attachment) Update 18/10/2018 - Version 1.2. Score glitch fixed so it should not roll over to 999999 anymore. Update 27/2/2018 - Version 1.0. The game is officially done. I've used the 4k to the max and nothing more can be added sadly. Since I want to work on my other game I decided to not go 8k. (Maybe at some point in the future) The good news is that the game got picked up for publication at Packrat video games! It will be sold as a cart+manual. So no box, but I designed one anyway for anyone who wants to print one themselves. Game now comes in NTSC and PAL. You are an astronomer and you are working at a telescope. You are tasked to observe a certain star for your research project. Point your telescope at the star and observe! But look out for clouds, as they ruin your observations. Other astronomers also want to use the telescope, so make sure to finish your observations before the time runs out. Otherwise you will be banned for wasting time. Goals: *Fill the healthbar before the score reaches 0 *Don't observe clouds Flip the left difficulty switch to A for playing with paddles, B for joystick. Flip the right difficulty switch for extra time on the telescope Gamemode 1 gets harder with standard increments Gamemode 2 has more random leveles Use reset button to reset For convenience, you can play the game by clicking this link: http://javatari.org/?ROM=http://pietrow.net/games/astronomerV0.9.bin Any feedback and suggestions for gameplay would be welcome!
