Aardvark for Atari VCS/2600

Recommended Posts

99.99% done (game and packaging), Al should be able to provide a realistic date for the release.

(Not sure if this was brought up previously) I loaded in on the AFP and the title screens (AA and Aardvark screens) work, but once I get to the game options screen it is stuck there. Is there any way to start the game around the options screen?

 

SARA Ram has to be configured to $FFs so the portable will detect it properly, but you automatically lose lives whenever the game screen appears (no doubt a TIA issue with the portable's broken emulator).

 

The earlier 8k demos work fine, tho.

Thanks for trying Nukey!

Wouldn’t mind if there was a shop for ROMs (not carts) here as well. :)

That will eventually happen. Now that I have the forum upgraded (although work on that is still ongoing), the next thing to get upgraded (to completely new software) is the store. Once that happens, I can better explore offering ROMs for purchase.

Here's are renders of the box, courtesy Nathan Strum who created the box, manual and label for the game.  :)

I guess I'm gonna have to do some AA shopping. I noticed some 7800 games I need to get too.

 

I got to play this game a short while back and this game is awesome. Great job.

Yes, it's been a treat watching how this game has evolved over time!  It's a fantastic title for the 2600 that really pushes the console to its limits using traditional hardware (this is a 32K SARA game).  Óscar, Thomas and Nathan hit it out of the park!

Do you type this all the time or is it automatically added to your post?

I just wanted to repeat the well earned praise.  The artwork is amazing and the game is like a piece of art itself!  Looking forward to its eventual release.

A free ROM for those that purchase a physical copy too would be awesome.  It would be great to not always put wear and tear on those beautiful AtariAge boxes every time we want to play our homebrews.

A couple months' trying different strategies and no positive results for the AFP.  Giving up on this :P

Kinda difficult to move around in the 8k versions anyway with the touchy AFP controller.

 

Great game for the 2600, regardless.  I don't care if the Anteater proto ever goes public! :D
