Lives or energy bar would be good instead of game over with one hit.

It would be awesome to see this on an actual cartridge. But I am unemployed, and I will probably not be able to find work in many years so I don't have the funding to do it.

Just give it to Al to make into cartridges. Albert, the owner of AtariAge.

Yeah, it was an emergency solution, the ball went haywire with diagonal movement.

 

If you want, I can try to see if I can fix it. Is the latest .bas file posted?

Neat little game! :)

I think it would be much more fun with diagonal movement, the controls are too stiff the way they are now. It's also a bit on the easy side - IMO it should get faster/more difficult with each round. And how about using the fire-button for running faster?

 

That being said i like this game and it's a nice start but as it is it's just fun to play for a few minutes. I think it has potential to become a great game (= good enough to be released on cart) if you keep working on it.

Okay, diagonal movement is now working. And pressing the fire button allows you to run fast left and right. (Might get too easy if you can run fast in every direction)

Gonna see what I can do about speeding everything up each time you beat it.

I love the Katamari games! Never would have thought anyone would try to do one on the 2600!! Good job, I like it!

Diagonal movement :

 

That's much better! :)

Zipping around the screen is much more fun now! You probably should give the player less time to collect items though as it's a bit too easy now...

For making the game more difficult how about adding obstacles (playfield-pixels) on the first screen in the later rounds?

And you could let the king shoot lasers (missiles) out of his eyes or add a moving obstacle you have to jump over in later rounds.

 

Anyway, i'm glad you keep on working on the game and looking forward to see how it turns out...

Well, getting feedback makes games evolve =) Without feedback things go stagnant.

 

Gonna see what I can do with the difficulty.

I would definitely look into putting some sort of conflict other than a timer. I was thinking the same thing as Impaler_26, maybe some sort of obstacles, where if hit you lose items... or items that are too big to pick up so if you go after them, you waste time. Something to make things more hectic! Seriously awesome game though! You pulled off what I think very few could have!

Good ideas. If I could do multisprites properly I could have a bunch of items on the screen at once. But I'm not ready for that. That will have to wait for Katamari 2 =)

I had an idea about the playfield being dangerous. Bars could pertrude and grow across the playfield to cut you off and waste your precious time.

hey rabbit ive had a bunch of people playing the latest version of this and we all had a blast!

lives for the second lvl made it perfect!

only complaints we had was that it needed more levels!

 

how many times can 5 people play 2 levels over and over again?

a few hours later we where all saying more levels :P

 

oh forgot to add Highscore = 4320

Having never played a katamari game, I was puzzled as what to do n the second screen.

 

DUH Just read the description. My bad.
