Contest has been extended one week! The new deadline is 11:59pm CST November 24th! AtariAge and homebrew authors Chris Walton and Thomas Jentzsch are proud to announce a label contest for the upcoming Atari 2600 game Star Castle Arcade! The winning label design will be featured on the Star Castle Arcade cartridge, manual and box. Star Castle Arcade is a 32K game that pushes the boundary of what's possible on the Atari 2600. Star Castle is a 1980 vector arcade game by Cinematronics. The game involves obliterating a series of defenses orbiting a stationary turret in the center of the screen. Chris Walton and Thomas Jentzch have created a fantastic port of Star Castle for the Atari 2600, one of two versions of Star Castle developed in parallel. This new version contains many improvements over the previously released version of Star Castle. The object of Star Castle is to destroy an enemy cannon which sits in the center of three concentric, rotating energy shield rings while avoiding or destroying 'mines' - enemies that spawn from the core, pass through the energy rings, and then home in on the player's ship. They can stick back to the shield if the player maneuvers in such a way that a ring is between the ship and the mines. The player-controlled spaceship can rotate, thrust forward, and fire small projectiles. The cannon's shields are composed of twelve sections each, and each section takes two hits to destroy. Once a section is breached, rings beneath it are exposed to fire. The Star Castle Arcade Label Contest will run until 11:59pm (CST), Sunday, November 24, 2013 and all submissions must be received by this time!
Hello, everyone! After months in development, I am ready to start a label contest for my Atari 2600 homebrew game, Drive! In this game, you are an explorer with a fancy car who steals a booby-trapped golden idol from a temple, which causes the structure to collapse. You drive down a bridge as it collapses behind you, avoiding obstacles in your path, collecting treasures, and doing everything you can to survive. Download the ROM and try the game for yourself: http://atariage.com/forums/topic/250070-drive/ Screenshots: The setting of the game is something like if Indiana Jones meets flashy red sports cars, and ideally the art would reflect this, but generally you have full creative control! The winner will get: A free copy of the game Your artwork featured on the cartridge label and the front cover of the manual Your name written in the Credits section of the manual For now, I'll set the deadline to June 20th. If necessary, I will extend it. Have fun, and good luck!
