HERE WE GO!

ArcadeVision is really proud to introduce to you Risky Rick in Dangerous Traps.
The most impressive game never released for the Colecovision videogame system on a standard 32K cartridge.
This is the fruit of years of passionate work done by Easter Egg, with the goal to produce a smooth, funny and advanced gameplay for our beloved console.
To make the most of the Colecovision, this game was 100% coded in assembly language from scratch and designed using customs tools and routines.
That allow to push the capabilities were nobody was able to do without the help of extra hardware modules.

Is there a mailing list we can join or be notified about how to order besides these forums in case we aren't able to keep checking back?

Nice - looking forward to this one.

 

In the YouTube video above I see that Rick looks kind of transparent/slightly flickery. Is this something the F18A will prevent?

there is no sprites flickering, this is just an artifact caused by video. Edited by usar666

Y'know, games like this really show that the ColecoVision didn't really get the chance it deserved, back in the early eighties. Cool stuff indeed. :)

WOW! Can you imagine if this game had been coded and released in 1983, let's say? How far it would have set the bar in coding for the Colecovison back in the day!

 

The fact that it has been coded in only 32k is quite fascinating. Yes, folks there is still lots of life left in our 36-year-old Colecos.

 

The SGM is sort of a "cheat" as it lets programmers get a little more lazy in code optimization, fluff, bells and whistles etc. Sticking to only 32k truly keeps it real, and maintains 100% compatibility without the addition of an expensive add-on board.

There is an arcadevision.com but the last article on the homepage dates from July 2016 so I don't know if they're related at all. Hopefully not. Wouldn't want to hand over money to that website. Looks a bit dodgey to me.

Be sure, it is not related at all.

 

Um, this maybe a silly question but does the box come flat and you have to glue it together yourself? Not a dealbreaker but just curious.

The factory allows both, but we have prefered to pick them up flat to save space and not damage them.

But no worry, they show us how to process to glue them properly. (some was done at the factory)

Couldn't agree more with that :)

It wouldn't have been, you would have been given no time to accomplish such complicated work.

Also some A$$ would have come down from marketing and said we want to change this , this , and this

Can't argue with that! This is the reason the system wasn't utilitzed to its full potential back in the day.
