The Video Game Homebrew Crash of 2016

Does bB have keypad support?

 

SeaGtGruff posted a demo using keypads many years ago. As far as I know no one ever made a game utilizing that code. Based on it's age, I'm also not sure if it would work with the newest version of bB.

 

Edit: It's also an old post, but CurtisP posted an update to SeaGtGruff's code in that thread as well.

I hereby grant you exclusive rights for manufacturing and distribution of Pet Rock. :D

That is awesome! Thank you. Maybe I can do a collectors edition double ender of SQuare Just Sits There and Pet Rock. Exciting!

I remember that it won the label contest by miles. There was absolutely no discussion. And afterwards Jordi invested a lot of time (and talent!) into further polishing what was already great.

 

IMO the best packaging for the 2600 ever. But I am not 100% objective here. :)

I _really_ like the art!

It would be better if these rocks games had different colors to reflect your mood. If I felt sad I could plug in my blue rock cartridge and stare at if for a while. Likewise I could plug in my yellow rock cartridge when I feel happy.

 

 

 

Also, just throwing this out there, I would like a hack of one of these rock games that competed against the player in a blinking contest.

Hmmm. Maybe I should actually work on the Slug Bug game idea I had a couple of years ago. All it is is random car sprites moving across the screen, and when a VW Beetle appears, you hit the person sitting next to you.

That Star Castle artwork needs to be on a poster. It's just beautiful. The composition is fantastic and the fact that the ship is AtariAge-orange is just perfect.

A small poster (10" x 14") is included with the game.

Is the box the same size so there won't be any fold lines? :D

LOL, no, but I'm glad to ship anyone a poster in a tube if they want to pay for the tube and shipping. I'll even include a free Space Rocks poster, and that one is larger (18" x 24") and is also beautiful.

The Space Rocks poster is really nice, but the Star Castle poster is beautiful, even with the fold lines.

What you want is my 4th quarter 2016 release of Mood Ring 2600.

 

Just press the joystick in whichever direction you feel like and the ring (SQuare) will indicate your mood.

 

It is still in the early stages.

You can ship me a CIB of both games and both posters in a tube, but I am not going to pay. Well, maybe I'll pay for shipping.

 

I'll trade you for your Concerto. :P :D

This.

 

That's the best idea I've heard for a game in a long time. I swear my youngest son always sees them first and slugs me first. We've been doing that for about as long as I can remember. :D

Can we go back to talking about how much bB is ruining everything? I really, really, really, really, really hate batari Basic. Also, people who use bB smell funny.

The slug bug idea has merit. It could even be one player. Just punch the joystick button when you see the beetle. A computer opponent could either be random or take into account your average response time.

 

A force feedback module would put it over the top. Like a boxing glove on a spring.

 

Ataribox?

I've seriously contributed to throwing this thread off topic, so I'm sorry about that. But yeah, I guess I do smell funny. Dangit, RT, stop pointing out the obvious.

Smelling funny? Get your batari cart soap on a rope today.

 

I will be spray painting some soap bars and making labels.

Included with the deluxe limited edition release. Still crunching the numbers for a price, but I hope to keep it under $200
