Holiday Collections

Recommended Posts

I bought copies of Stella's Stocking and The Byte Before Christmas and played them over Christmas, and wrote reviews for each in the store. Both were very solid, and I enjoyed getting to try a bunch of new games all at once.

 

I was wondering if anyone was working on assembling (as it were) a new collection for 2018? It sounds fun to create and contribute a holiday-themed game for such a collection.

While not a holiday-themed cart, it is wintry and with the recent cold snap here in Houston, I decided to break this cart out.

Funny, when I saw that movie title a couple of weeks ago, my reaction that I posted in a status update was that it should be a 2600 game. Hopefully this means that someone is actually doing or has already done it: :)

BigO
"Santa Claus Conquers the Martians". Now that's a movie title worthy of being made into an Atari 2600 game if I ever heard one.

It's a hack of Asteroids. You are Santa sleigh. And the asteroids are Christmas gifts.

Any screenshots? Also, where can I buy this?

I made one for myself and one for a member here. Do a search for the game. The .bin is out there. My eprom programmer does not work anymore or I would make one for you. You may want to adjust one of santa's sleighs. One of the them does not align with the shot if I remember right.

How many Christmas-themed games came out back in the day? I'm sure someone out there made one. The concept is laughable today, but with games being so simple I'm sure you could make something out of the idea of Christmas.
