  1. Here's the development thread for Leisure Suit Toby (Larry) I'll post development progress in this thread I've about 75% of all graphics done, I need to double check some though So here's a few screens that has already been verified and works for CV
  2. See how I coined the term there. I've just finished "UFO" over the weekend! (for now at least, the best I could squeeze into 4K) and also here is the most recent update to "K.C.'s Crazy Nightmare!" ** Update ** I have added "Handy Pick Hank" to the files on this post to keep the collection together. My website for other 2600 games I've made: TacticalNeuronics.com Reders_UFO_13.bin Reders_UFO_13.txt Reders_KCs_Crazy_Nightmare!_13.bin Reders_KCs_Crazy_Nightmare!_13.txt Reders_Handy_Pick_Hank_20170415.bin Reders_Handy_Pick_Hank_20170415.txt
  3. Xump - The Final Run is a simple multi-platform puzzler by Retroguru. Initially released by Psilocybin Development in 2005 the game has been improved in almost every aspect you can imagine. New graphics, new levels, new music, new options, new everything... Help Holger to clean up deserted space fields. As this is a very dangerous task for a human being a headbot named Xump will be the one who has to suffer. Your main task is to clean all dissolving tiles on several single-screen levels by simply stepping on them, one by one. Few fields are secured with mines and need a double tap. Mines can be blown up when passing by or disarmed by Xump when staying on this specific field for a short moment. Certainly the mission sounds easier than it will be. Atari Lynx Port I started studying the Lynx toolchain in November 2018 with the idea to port this game to Lynx fashinated by the idea to have a lot of challenges to face, like dealing with a lower resolution then the standard one of Retroguru games, or not haveing modplug support for the background tunes. It was a fantastic journey in retrocoding and now I'm in love of Atari Lynx (more than 3DS that was the system that make me return on coding after several years of pause). I did my best to make a game that coud have compete with some of the comercial releases of the Lynx Age. Could have been better? Maybe yes, but not with so few time (6502 ASM is the next frontier). Retroguru games are always in continue refining, so if you havesome hints to make the game better let me know... but don't wait too much or your iprovement suggestions could miss a possible phisical release of the game. Last version of the game is downloadable from Retroguru site: https://www.retroguru.com/xump/ I'll post here if there are updates to the release. Controls UP = UP BUTTON DOWN = DOWN BUTTON LEFT = LEFT BUTTON RIGHT = RIGHT BUTTON SELECT = A BUTTON PAUSE = PAUSE BUTTON MUTE/UNMUTE MUSIC = OPT1 ROTATE SCREEN = PAUSE + OPT1 RESET GAME = PAUSE + OPT2 RESET HIGHSCORES = OPT1 + OPT2 How to use the lnx file Xump for Atari Lynx can be played on a real Atari Lynx writing an EEPROM Lynx cart of at least 256 KB with the xump.lnx file (removing the starting 64 bytes header), or using a RetroHD SD cart. It can also be played on Lynx emulators, but most emulators will have sound issues. The game saves higscores and the last level played if a Lynx cart with an extra 128 bytes EEPROM chip is in use. Emulators need to support EEPROM emulation. To enable saves on a RetroHQ SD cart, a file named xump.sav of 128 bytes must be created on the SD in the /saves/ folder (the content of the file is not important and will be overwritten at first use). You can find attached a zip file with a save file ready to use. Screenshots Xump_sav.zip
  4. This is a few years old, but it was just brought back to mind, and I thought I'd share it here. This has gone years without an update, but I heard the dev is now working on it some more, and there should be another update coming up. Wolfenstein 3D [fv11 fixed] (SEGA Genesis/MegaDrive) Tested and running perfectly on MD.emu and RetroArch on Android (Genesis Plus GX and PicoDrive cores), as well as KEGA Fusion on PC and PicoDrive on PSP.

  5. ProjectY It's ProjectY - the RPB you've been waiting for since the 90s! WIP @ 's Magical Game Factory. The Origins For the first time ever, fans of retro consoles are getting exactly the game they want! And they want a RPB! Investors, as they are called, have used their voting power to shape ProjectY to their own liking. Their first poll result was to make a game for the Mega Drive/Genesis. Then came the decision to make the game a RPB (Role-Playing-Brawler). The final big turn for the project was the setting, which the investors decided should be cyberpunk. With these defining poll results, ProjectY started to take shape while additional minor polls followed. Development is currently ongoing; you can still join ProjectY and shape the game by voting, submitting your ideas and discussing the project on the boards! 40MEG Obtained with fervor by the investors, we can guarantee the game will have a bare minimum 40 megabits cartridge. ProjectY is joining the small club of High Density Cartridges (also known as the "big, black cartridges"). This will be at least the second biggest Mega Drive/Genesis game ever, after WaterMelon's own Pier Solar! With this much storage at our disposal, we can make the ultimate 16-bit beat 'em all! Also obtained by the investors, the game will feature four playable characters, one of them to be unlocked. The Context ProjectY takes place in a post-apocalyptic world, set in an Asian high-tech metropolis. The last survivors of the nuclear war are divided into several classes, where the most powerful have the others by the balls. This has divided the governing bodies into several fractions, where ethnic mafias and a corrupt corporation are just a few of them! As you can see, this story is filled with many possible scenarios. It will demand lots of exploring and several playthroughs to get everything out of it. WHY SHOULD I JOIN AND INVEST? How do I join a project? If a project is open to join, you can join by investing at least one GEM into the project. What are GEMS? How much do they cost? GEMS are Watermelon's currency. As for now, one GEM is equal to 10 cents (USD) with the possibility of changing later on. You can use GEMS to invest in a project. If you earn some GEMS, you can use them to get discounts on products, get coupons, etc. What do I get for my investment in a project? Magical Game Factory investments offer access to voting and conversion features. How much do I have to invest to save myself one copy of the game? 500GEMS (USD 50) for one edition of the game reserved exclusively to Investors.

  6. Has there been any examples of an Atari ST game on a rom cartridge? Currently exploring the possibility of an ST home-brew game but rather than floppy disk doing a limited run on an ST cart. I presume bank switching could be used to overcome the rather limited cartridge capacity? thanks Barnie
  7. For those who don't know, I have a new homebrew out for the Atari 7800 titled, Crazy Tank. Details about it are here.

  9. Game: Allia Quest System: Atari 2600/VCS/Sears Video Arcade Publisher: Atari Age Original Publisher: ebivision Programmer: Igor Barzilai Cartridge Size: 4K Copyright: 2001 Genre: Shooter (Vertical) Controller: Joystick (Sega Game Pad Compatible) Players: 1 Rarity Rating: H (Home Brew) In this review I will be borrowing heavily from my review of Allia Quest that I posted to the Atari Age Store Page. Full disclosure - I rated it 5.0 out of 5.0. FROM THE MANUAL It was a simple enough mission, return the ceremonial pants that the Prince of the Agrob system had left behind on his latest diplomatic mission to your home world. The journey to planet G45 was a pretty boring affair. Or so you thought! Not far into your mission, a squadron of ships appears on your radar, but it's not a welcoming committee! After the surprise of shots echoing against your hull, you scramble to get the ship into combat mode, knowing that your simple delivery mission has now turned into a fight for your life! This is a highly addictive vertical shooter originally published by ebivision. This was their second game following the disappointing Alfred Challenge. There are 8 alien races that you must battle in the game. They come in waves. This game takes time and patience to get use to the different varieties of alien ships and the formation and movement patterns of each. I have my own name of each of them, based on how they look, such as Eyeballs, Flying Carpets, Klingon Battle Cruisers, Lanterns, etc. The game has different names for them of course. Each enemy formation must be destroyed completely before the next formation of enemies will appear. Remember, each enemy has its own pattern as far as how it moves in formation. But the formation an enemy uses will stay the same from one level to the next. Once you have destroyed the last ship in the last formation you will hear a bleep tone. That not only indicates that you are moving on to the next level, but have also earned an extra ship. You have to keep track of how many ships you have in your head, because it's not displayed. An interesting feature of this game is that if you move to the left or right of center far enough you will see another formation mirroring the one in the center. They can take you out as well, but then you can destroy them as well. As you advance each level these 'mirror' formations will move closer to the one in the center, forcing you to thread the needle so to speak. This is a very good game considering that it's only 4K in size. Actually, this is a good game. Period. STRATEGY: After you learn the formation patterns (the way the ships move), you must learn the art of 'the dance.' You must weave as they weave, learning their rhythms as you go. I generally let the first wave go, so that I can get a clean shot of their under-bellies as they appear from the top of the screen. I will only shoot 4 in one pass. 5 is pushing it. There are times that I feel that I have reached the highest score that I am ever going to be capable of, but then go and top it, so never give up! CONTROLLER OF CHOICE: Sega Genesis 3-button game pad. Not only is it more responsive than the standard 2600 Joystick, but it's much more comfortable during long sessions.

  11. The Gizzle Wap and the Terrible Blizzard of Firn is a new side scrolling game in beta testing, so honest feedback is welcome. The story: 25th day of the 12th phase of 18th fade of the constellation Stonefish of the Hallmas Zodiac. (December 25, 2018) The Feast of Salubria has been cut short by a tremendous blizzard trapping those unfortunate enough to be caught outside under a blanket of heavy snow. (firn) The council of Sundra called for anyone willing to brave the elements and rescue the survivors . Only two volunteered. The Gizzle Wap defender of the J’Thanian woods and the Moum Moum, watcher of the Southern shores. The Gizzle Wap offered his ability to dig in the snow and the Moum Moum his keen eyesight. Together they would set up a safe house and search the land bringing anyone they found back to the base. “Oh brave Gizzle Wap and noble Moum Moum, you do not understand the severity of this storm. The cold and firn vortices will be too much for a shore bird and small creature of the wood. You will not survive through the night.” “Then we have no time to waste. We must do what we can during the sun’s light.” Game Play: You control the Gizzle Wap and the Moum Moum searching for survivors. You can move the Gizzle Wap left and right and the Moum Moum will follow. Press the joystick up to make the Gizzle Wap jump and the Moum Moum will flap. Press the fire button to dig in the snow. When you have a Salubrious stone you can pull down on the joystick to activate it’s ability. Scan the area while avoiding firn vorticies and listen for the Moum Moum to sing (tu rah lu rah lu) and dig where he sings. Something will be buried there. Note: the Moum Moum will not sing if he is too high in the air or too low to the ground. You must find that sweet spot in between. When you unearth a creature you will need to deal with it accordingly. (see beastiary ) The ones that need rescuing the Moum Moum will carry off to safety. Others you might need to rebury. Rescue enough creatures and you will see a star in the sky. A Paladin will drop a map. Pick up the map and it will lead you to the boss. Pay close attention to your life bars. The Moum Moum’s life is on the left and Gizzle Wap’s is on the right. If either of them reach zero the game will be over. If you take too long and the day turns to night the pair will take extra damage until one or the other expires. To replenish your health you must forage for food. Fortunately one of the customs of The Feast of Salubria is to bury food and gifts under trees. Dig at the base of a tree to unearth a gift. Not all trees will have things buried there. Defeat the boss and move on to the next day. The riddle of the Fraez: Each boss you defeat will leave a clue to the riddle. There are 7 clues. The last one can be seen in the sky.

  12. Hi. I am new to the Atari 5200 Homebrew scene. The 5200 system was my first system I ever owned. I hope there someone out there that can help me out and would be willing to sell me the Atari 5200 M.U.L.E. Cartridge. I have a 4 port system and my friends & I are M.U.L.E. fans so I hope there's someone that can help me out, thanks.
  13. Here's a project I had in mind since 2009, Wrath of the Shurikens / Shuriken no ikari A Ninja game inspired from those games: - Tarzan - Pitfall - Megaman - Ninja Gaiden I decided to go on with this project (wich I'm currently working on) So far, the main character is done as well as the Stage 1 (on a total of 5 Stages) Backgrounds are done for all Stages except Stage 4 I need to work on Enemies, Bosses, Items The game will use the MegaCart (won't fit 32K obviously) I'm expecting to use something around 256K I'll post progress in this thread during the whole development So feel free to post your suggestions, comments etc.. Here's Stage 1
  14. Can someone explain this in the simplest of terms? I really want to burn myself a copy of Gem Race now that Felyx made that nice art for it. I have Jiffi and think its a great and simple program, but where do you go from there? Convert to what file, what type of cd's best to use, what program best for burning to a CD with windows 7-10? Etc. Thanks! From those of us that need our hand held
  15. Is the Jinks 7800 cartridge the best shell to use for donor/homebrew purposes? Or is the draw with the board used with the game? Or both? Reason why I ask is because I found a spare cartridge and I thought if the shell is the best of the best, then why not scan it for 3D printing purposes? If the Jinks shell isn't the best, which shell is?
  16. Time to announce the third round of the 2014 Harmony Games:Thrust as suggested by Liduario Game Description: The Resistance is about to launch a major offensive against the Intergalactic Empire.

  17. If interested, please visit the thread I posted in the marketplace: http://atariage.com/forums/topic/278924-interest-check-colecovision-homebrew-kung-fu-master-collectorvision/ Thank you for looking!
  18. Yes! Just received my official patch from Space Cactus Headquarters. Show off your patch, if you have received one. BTW, if you haven't purchased this game, check out the reviews. I recommend it. https://atariage.com/store/index.php?l=product_detail&p=1108 http://atariage.com/forums/topic/263862-new-2017-homebrew-games-available-here-first/?p=3918943
  19. (not mine) Vectrex "MiniVex II" controller, with Rapid Fire, twin analog joysticks Brand-new, twin joystick controller for Vectrex! It's got a tough, all-metal case. Size is about 3/4 of the factory unit, see photo 4. The two joysticks are analog, like the factory controller. The left and right cables correspond to the left and right joysticks, and a toggle switch on the back selects the left or right cable for button inputs, so you can use the buttons with EITHER joystick, when only one cable is plugged in, or you can plug in both cables and use BOTH joysticks at once! (The toggle switch prevents overlapping button inputs.) Thus this controller is compatible with Robot Arena, and (hopefully) the upcoming Stramash Zone. Now, if those homebrew designers would only grace us with Crazy Vector Climber, and Vectrex Widow, and Cloak & Vector... The buttons on this controller are smaller and stiffer than the factory controller, but there's a remedy for that...button #4, most often used for firing, has a rapid fire feature. Just hold it down and bangbangbang! The other toggle switch on the back selects rapid or normal fire, and with the rotary pot you can adjust the firing speed to YOUR liking. This controller is not cosmetically perfect...I make them by hand, so they're not going to be perfect. Please see my other auction for a simpler, single joystick version of this controller. I'll guarantee this controller for 30 days from the day you receive it. If it fails within that time, I'll repair it at no charge. Paypal only, will ship anywhere EBay's Global Shipping goes, and THANKS FOR LOOKING! https://www.ebay.com/itm/Vectrex-MiniVex-II-controller-with-Rapid-Fire-twin-analog-joysticks/222794918982?
  20. Looking for a CIB copy of Star Wars Ewok Adventure for the 2600/ 7800.
  21. Can you survive 112 Ocean Avenue??? This game will ship with the current open order for Forbidden Lands. [media] [/media] You enter in the house ... into darkness. You can only see where your flashlight shines. You can move left, right or forward. You must find the Master key to open chests. You must collect diamonds hidden in the chests. There are 4 different magic spells in the chests that you can use against creatures. There are 4 different evil creatures hiding in the dark strength: 8, 10, 12 or 14. -Then you enter in fight mode. -You must roll the dice to fight the creature. -The dice indicates how much strength the creature will lose. -Each time you roll the dice, the creature will advance one step toward you.... Will anyone survive???? This is the newest game by Rafael Cardoso ! Released 31 Oct 2016 by [email protected] Limited run: 50 copies for Odyssey2 & 50 copies for Videopac(+) 29e Please let me know the following when you reserve: 1) How many copies? 2) Version - Odyssey 2 or Videopac+ 3) Case Yes or No - Odyssey 2 case - 4e - VP+ case - 8e Pre-order lists: ScottyDont00 O2 with Case - Paid Tigerinatlanta O2 with Case Doug0909 O2 with Case Rhcocker O2 with Case KylJoy O2 with Case Scobb O2 with Case Rick Reynolds 02 no case Atarinut76 O2 with Case Darrin999 O2 with Case Necron99 O2 with Case byonddrivn O2 with Case How this works and why I am awesome: 1. I don't not charge any extra, you will pay only the actual cost of the game, case, and poster if you decide to get them as well as your portion of shipping from Belgium and shipping from me to you. 2. We split the shipping from Belgium to my house in the US which is $36 for up to 5kgs - the more people that reserve a copy the less it costs us all. 3. This provides tracking from Belgium to me at huge savings ( 1 game alone would be $12+ with tracking). 4. I'll update everyone once it ships to me and then I quickly send them out to you to start playing.
  22. Hi everyone,here's where i'll start posting my fake box arts that i'm doing on Microsoft Paint. I'll cover any console that i can get my hands on.
  23. Hi everyone,i have some really good stuff for all of you. After the Chameleon fiasco,i wanted to talk to Collectorvision & Piko Interactive on their Facebook pages to see if they had any interest in porting some of their games either for the Jag or Jag CD. Fortunately they do,but the 2 developers have some issues,Collectorvision doesn't have a programmer for the system yet,menwhile Piko Interactive is figuring out on how to put some of their games in cartrigdges form. But either way,this is awesome news, what do you think?
  24. Hi all, a while since i been around however decided to fire up the old VisualBb the other night for some fun. Anyway lost as to what to make as a project the Mrs came up with the idea of a small game of cat and mouse. So for once i had something somewhat original of an idea to sink my teeth into. Main idea was to show her some coding but the game kinda grew into something larger then expected. It's not the best little game going around nor the most fun but isn't to bad in my opinion. Thought i would share it anyway and thinking of updating it, well atleast the known varible reset bug i have found. At this moment i have used the full 4kb of allocated ROM space so havent removed the bug yet. i have been thinking of moving the source to a new 8kb project to make a more indepth game but not sure yet. The small known bug is after the game is over by pressing the fire button it will restart then game, it resets the score however does not reset the speed of the cat and another background varrible. Not too much of an issue at the moment as by pressing the console reset will reset the game(varribles) completly. I still need to downsize the sorce code anyway in return it will allow enough room to fix this bug. Basically the game is fairly simple all you really do is avoid the cat like any mouse would while collecting the small pieces of cheese for points. Your only defence is mouse droppings by pressing the fire you can lay a dropping that if the cat hits he will get off your back for a brieff moment. In addition to that if you collect more then 40 pieces of cheese and manage to make the cat run into a mouse dropping you will unlock "blue cheese" as a secondary cheese to collect. Blue cheese gives 20 points rather then the standard 5 for yellow. PS the blue cheese can be hiding behind a tree at times Anyway i know some like to see these little projects so i thought i would share the game Cat and Mouse (2016) (TT2600).bin
  25. My business partner and I have come up with something that I don't think I've seen on the scene before, and I'd like to share it in order to test the waters to see what kind of interest we might have in the product if we were to go into production with it. It is an infrared remote control system we call AtariRC. Designed for the 2600 VCS. It includes the pause modification, select, reset, and two joysticks (no paddles), all controlled via the IR transmitter that is powered by a 9 volt battery. It is very much a prototype right now, but is completely working. We're unsure if we're going to sell them as completed products or just kits. We're unsure what all we are going to do with them in general honestly. We're still working on design and trimming the costs down, as right now a finished product would be rather pricey (probably about $150 a set, $180 if we install for you.) We hope to drive that cost down, obviously. Finished product will probably be vastly physically different from this prototype. Would any of you be interested in such a setup? (forgive my southern Indiana redneck twang...) Thanks everyone -Tim
