You have all that fancy Creative Suite stuff, and you have the nerve to post that meme without Shatner's head?

Cart with box.

 

Use same box but put the Special Edition banner on it for 8K Like the game boxes of yesteryear Superman Video Chess etc

I just whipped up those designs for the fun of it (like I always do). Completely up to DINTAR816 whether he wants to use. After all, it's his game :)

Hi all, I added the code for single, double and triple item bonus, it took about 16 bytes, I also saved other bytes more, now are about 37 bytes free, I might add a mesage of "game over", or perhaps another thing. :)

Also going to improve a bit the intermissions (at least the last, changing the color of blinky when he returns).

I'll post the rom next week. :-D

Now I will continue with the version of 8k. :)

Triple item bonus? But you only get two fruit per stage...

I was a bit confused about that part myself.

Is the latest update available for download? The one on the first page looked like the previous version to me..

Too excited to read the message? :grin:

"Item bonus" s/b "bonus item"?

(in reference to post #90)

Thanks for finding it was post #90. Most of what I post is invisible.

I an glad to see that suggestion made it in because it was odd that after you finished the Orange fruit board the next one looked identical.

This game is amazing!

Also amazing is the quality of new Pac games for the VCS over the years.

First in 82 we had the original Atari Pac Man and just thought that was the best they could do then Ms Pac was released and was so much better.

Then came Ebivision Pac Man then A Better PacMan hack then Nukey's Pac Man hacks then Debro Pac Man which I THOUGHT was the pinnacle and now THIS which in my opinion is more like the arcade than all of the rest. Bravo!

Somebody please, loan me their Delorean. I need to travel back in time and drop a certain game cart off at a certain programmer's desk. :D

Or didn't have a two player or settings for kids?

 

I was thinking of the children's "Teddy Bear" myself. Atari eventually did away with two player games though. Ms Pac was only one player.

 

I remember the original bragging point was the multiple variations of game play. I probably only played about 8 of the 122 Space Invaders variants, and that was just to see what they were all about!

 

I always thought the color cycling was in the hardware. Was it something that coders had to use up space to add in?
