Zippy the Porcupine Binary Released!

Recommended Posts

Chris Spry and AtariAge are happy to make available the final version of the Zippy the Porcupine binaries. You are free to use these binaries to enjoy the game via emulation, or by using flash carts such as the Harmony Cartridge. Building and selling physical copies of Zippy the Porcupine without permission is not permitted.


If you enjoy Zippy the Porcupine and wish to play the game on a real Atari 2600 (or compatible) system, you can help support the homebrew community by purchasing a copy of Zippy the Porcupine in physical form from the AtariAge Store:




Watch for additional games from Chris Spry and AtariAge! We should have an updated demo of Chris' upcoming Robot Zed at the upcoming Portland Retro Gaming Expo.


Enjoy!

Thanks, its good to have this for my Harmony Encore. I purchased a physical copy of this soon after it was released in the atariage store and it was worth the purchase price and more. I really look forward to Robot Zed. Keep it up Chris!

Thank you. Not a complaint, just feedback: neither version works on my flashback portable.

 

I'm not surprised. I have a modified Flashback 2 that takes actual physical cartridges, and not even Princess Rescue works on that.

Cartridge.ModelNo

Cartridge.Name

I remember on release day of the game I wasn't able to procure a CIB. So sad lol. Over the last number of years I would regularly check the store to see if the box option was available. It never was when I looked, until recently. I ordered 2 CIBs.

 

Today I walked with my daughter up to the mailbox and was naturally geeked to see the AA box in there. I explained a bit what it was. She's 12. She knows Sonic. She knows what an Atari 2600 is. But not really what Zippy is all about. I explained the best I could. But she was most interested in messing around with the styrofoam "peanuts". She was still excited about the game, and I was pretty sure there would be a ROM code download in there. Nope. Arghh!!! No Zippy.

 

I have a 6-switcher, but I don't have a CRT anymore (I'm feeling sorta regretful for getting rid of my Sony KD-34XBR960 lol), or a Framemeister. I don't roll with the VCS on the plasma. I really HATE it when there's no ROM available!! I buy the carts as collectibles pretty much. Anyways, so I log onto here to check the Zippy threads to find out what's up with the ROMs, Pretty strange coincidence (or whatever) that the ROMs were just posted up!

 

Thanks Al and Chris. It took awhile but you did it! icon_smile.gificon_thumbsup.gif

Has anyone beaten this game ?

I made it to an Eggman boss once and died instantly. I also uncovered a gem once or twice. The fact the game randomly starts you on different stages adds replay value thoguh. Beating this game would be doable with savestates I think.

When I bought my Zippy, there was no box option. Is there a way I can buy just a box? I'll buy a couple more items too if I can get this box.

Sending a PM to Al would probably be the best way to handle it. Hopefully he'll be able to hook it up for you.
