Hi, here you can download our latest game Millionaire with source codes as always. There is an ABBUC version which contains English and German question sets (this version is updated with some minor fixes and some juicy gfx at million winning screen). Then regular version with one language (English in this case) and at last Millionaire Custom Game Builder which allows you to build your own disk with supplied question files.
 

Code: MaPa
Gfx, msx and English question sets: PG
German question Sets: Charlie Chaplin

Soul destroying game shows game now for the Atari 8bits gonna avoid this like the plague


For a high resolution game, it is very polished. What would you expect?

Congratulations!!!

 

This is a very well executed game and the over all experience is spot on.  I was sucked into it for many fun (and frustrating) hours during the ABBUC consideration period.  The visuals and the music and the sequencing all come together so well.

 

Nicely done.  It's not just another trivia game.

I love it!

 

A game to actually learn something with and the ability to make our own questions. It can be used to teach kids or adults just about any thing. It keeps it interesting and fun!

 

Nicely Done!

Very POLISHED and CLASSY !!!

I have a soft-spot for hi-res work, and yours brings out about the best Atari can do, but in a different (and welcome) realm.

Congratulations, WELL deserved!!! Edited by Faicuai

Congratulations guys  :thumbsup:  :thumbsup: 

 

This will be a fun one when you have people over. The question maker is the key addition I hope we see a few sets posted here over time  ;)

Thanks MaPa & PG and congratulations. Nice production, as always, and nice adaptation.

Good to see you both back in competition after some years of hiatus (2014 - RGB?). 

 

It's good to see thinking games like this appear on the A8 for change.

 

Was the game tested or is supposed to be fine for NTSC machines? I'm having some small

problem with keypresses being detected (note: only using emulation so far). There seems

to be some delay in detection of keys being pressed, which requires keys to be held down

at times.

 

I'm not sure how large the question pool is, but one suggestion I would make (if any updates

would be made) is to record on disk what questions were asked in previous sessions, in order

to avoid repeating the same questions too often in successive sessions.

Thank you for appreciating the effort we put into this.

 

What a cool idea to share the builder kit. We will have "Millonario" in spanish!

Thank you very much Marek and Zdenek!
For Italian language, standard Atari international character set would be needed.

Its different, its new, its very well done and ITS APPRECIATED...

 

I understand the dislike of the game show and the ethics behind it, its greed at its most basic IF the person allows it to be...The average person SHOULD be able to make a nice lump of money BUT its truly knowing when to say NO and that is a soul destroying choice to a poor person..

 

BUT as a game where you lose nothing but have great fun it does not apply...

 

The game looks nicely built, LOTS of effort and slick in hires, thanks to all involved..

High res with color always appreciated. And me puzzles just looking at the screenshot of the title screen to see how you did that large part of blue or black ;)

That would be great! Let me know (PM) if you need any special characters in the font. I suppose you'd at least need the reversed question mark?

Very nicely done! Your ABBUC win is well deserved. I found your game to be very polished. Giving us the custom game builder is definitely welcome. This will give your game a much longer lifespan.

It's just wide PMGs underlaid, repositioned on every line (or when needed) in DLI.

I do appreciate the effort but the Atari 8bits are capable of so much more

Exactly! And how about black, yellow, dark blue and light blue in the answers section. That's some clever programming!

I am about to load it up and give it a try! It looks like fun! Generally speaking I'm not one for games shows or most game show games. But not because they aren't fun to watch or play, but because they are so brain-liquefyingly addictive I stay clear. But I do like trivia games and the ability to change questions is nice. So I guess I'm about to get addicted and liquefy my brain after all... :-o
