Pongo game - Freeware

Recommended Posts

Hi there,

 

Here is a cute little game called Pongo, 100% machine code, scrolling jumping type game from the year of 1985, designed by Mark Riley. He kindly allowed me to put it here for downloading. It was converted from a CAS file to an XEX file by Fandal. This game is freeware now.

 

Enjoy!

Thank you Mark and Gary!, A new colorful game from Atari. Looks nice!

 

*From* Atari?

 

I tried playing it. It's needlessly difficult even at the beginning. You have to figure out to jump out of ruts right at the start.

That's what I was thinking...

Same Mark Riley who wrote games for Datasoft? Was the program written for fun or was it to be a bigger project? What do you mean that the "game is freeware now"? Was it a type-in? Was it sold commercially on tape?

No, he is another Mark Riley. He made this game as a kid and it was never released. He was going to send it, but he decided that he wanted to become a rock star instead :) He stopped using his Atari and learnt to play the guitar.

 

Anyway, he is glad the game is now uploaded, ready for all Atarians to enjoy it.
