Recommended Posts

Thanks for sharing the video Daniel. Been waiting to play this one on the CV for over 28 years and it looks like the wait is almost over! :D

Very cool... I know this is/was on Retroillucid's wish list. About a year ago, he actually asked me if I wanted to code it. Glad I said no. :)

 

Also, the programmer needs a component video mod. ;)

Yep, I'm happy someone finally made that one! :)

Thanks Daniel for posting about this new homebrew game. Is the programmer a member of AtariAge?

I know Scott Huggins was working on Side Trak for a while. I'm guessing RKGames is someone else?

 

If RKGames is looking for a publisher, Side Trak is already listed on CollectorVision's web site as a work-in-progress.

 

In any case, it would be cool to see this completed and (finally!) released on cartridge. :)

I would be happy to publish it! :)

The box/label are already made :D

It would be great to get this guy excited about programming future ColecoVision games. He said in the video he plans to release the rom. I would really love to play this.

That is awesome, I have never played it but I know I was always pissed at that fake coleco catalog and all the games that were never produced.

Finishing off all the games in that catalog would be cool. :)

I would be interested in purchasing also if it makes it to cartridge!

Thanks for the kind words and interest in my conversion of Side Trak everyone. It looks like the game should be released on cartridge after all :) I'll keep everyone posted on my progress and will post some video on my youTube channel when i reach major milestones! I still got alot of retooling, coding and graphics to do for the final game. After seeing all the interest the video on youTube made, it gave me that extra push i needed to finish the game once and for all. Thanks again everyone, hopefully the game will live up to everyone expectations?!

Get the game as close as you can to the arcade version, and we'll be more than happy! :D

Russ, this looks great. I'm so glad you are doing this. As Pixelboy said, I was "considering" taking this on....but never did. Looks to me (from the video) like you did an awesome job on it. Can't wait to see how it comes out.

Hey Scott... are you working on anything Coleco related at the moment? I know frantic was your latest game... did that one not pan out?

Is it weird that I'm kinda bummed that it now seems the ROM may not be released in favor of a full cart publishing?? :(

I side with Murph on this. Russ is a highly skilled programmer that has created iphone and ipad software (check out his other youtube videos), and stated in his video he was going to post the rom. Holding back the rom in favor of publishing is a real bummer.

The collector in me cannot possibly agree with that. ;) New CV games don't come along every day, so any new cartridge game is always a welcomed addition to the CV's library.

Agreed.

 

*edit* Man, that game looks like a lot of fun!
