Underwater Predator By ThatDude (Declan Hoare) EDIT: All updates will be posted with their own post to this topic. If you want the latest version, go to the last post in this topic by me. I would appreciate it if you didn't take my name out of this game's credits or sell the game without my permission. Technically, the latter is legal, but I would obviously prefer that you didn't. This is the first version of my first ever working Atari 2600 game, distributed under the GPL version 3. Please let me know what you think and give suggestions for improvements! You are a shark (in the loosest sense of the word ) flying around in SPAAAACE! underwater, surprisingly. You have to eat the "gold"fish (although because of the 2600's limited pallette, they're really light yellow) while avoiding black fish, which are rotten but somehow still alive and swimming (SHHH, don't question these things). Every 20 points, the speed of the fish increases, and although the first speed is downright boring, it quickly gets more interesting. You use the stick to move and the button to eat. Source code (warning: extremely messy): predator.bas NTSC ROM: Underwater_Predator_V1.bin I haven't made a PAL ROM at the time of this posting, but I definitely will at some point - I live in a PAL region, after all. z26 and Stella both run this game fine, although I don't have a Harmony cart (or, for that matter, a 2600) so I can't be sure if it works on real hardware. Enjoy!
It's been about 14 years since someone asked this question around here, so I thought it might be a fun topic to revisit. What was the first video game you bought for your Atari 2600 after acquiring the system? When I bought my Atari 2600 on eBay a few years back it came with quite a few popular games bundled in (Pitfall!, Asteroids, Space Invaders, etc.), but the first game I bought after picking up the system bundle was actually a homebrew title. The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring. It only took me 15 minutes or so to beat it, but I've still gone back to replay it and search for secrets half a dozen or so times since then. The manual was hilariously funny to read too. So how about you? What was the first game you bought for your Atari 2600?
Hello, I have just finished up my first game using Batari basic. This game is very minimal because my knowledge is minimal. I'm looking for feedback on what I should add or if there is anything to fix. I added the .bas so you can mess with the code if you want. I plan to have this put on a cartridge when it's polished up. Thanks in advance. tiefighter.bas tiefighter.bas.bin
