Did I accidentally forget my medicine and programmed a game without realizing it again?

The list of the contents is starting to look like that Monty Python sketch about the Spanish inquisition, adding one item every time. I suppose the difference is that over here, everyone do expect the Hive.

True! Game announcements are a bit piecemeal, but thats just the nature of its development.

Nah... It has the same "problems" as an Inty version of Robotron. They are booth games that need way too many compromises for them to be any fun to play. Having said that, I did experiment with something I called "Slime-o-tron" a few years ago. A few people saw it demoed on our stand at PRGE last year. It uses coloured squares mode for the enemies, but it wasn't all that much fun to play, so I dropped the idea.

How about using background animation like Dave's Hockey Robots of Death. http://atariage.com/forums/topic/219563-hockey-robots-of-death/

[That's for robotron, bubbles would be more difficult]

 

Edit:

Doesn't have to be exactly robotron but a dual disc 16 direction firing game with lots of non-overlapping or some overlapping enemies could be fun.

That method is OK for something like Berzerk, as long as you stick to the same kind of restrictions seen in the 2600 version. As a side note, my KillBotz! game does something similar.

 

For Robotron, you'd end up needing some kind of "dirty" BACKTAB/GRAM card manager and a bunch of pre-shifted graphics to handle arbitrarily overlapping enemies. The enemies in the game would all have to be the same colour too. If you don't let the enemies overlap, you would end up using too much screen real estate because of the restricted Inty screen height.

 

Creating compelling ports of games from either the arcade, or from other machines is mostly an exercise in compromises. They are needed in order to capture the "essence" of the game and to also make what you actually implement fun to play.
