Pumpkin Master

Recommended Posts

Hi all!

 

Looks like the invasion of pumpkins is about to start, all of them guided by the evil Pumpkin Master. :evil:

 

Fortunately your house is equipped with a proton cannon and maybe you can get help from your neighbors!!!

 

Make these pumpkins to eat dust!!! and Happy Halloween!!!

Thank you for a wonderful game. You are so talented.

 

My record is 1710 so far, but I have only just started playing it. It will be fun to play this over the next few days over the Halloween holiday.

PUMPKIN MASTER reminds me of 2 games that I really like:

 

 

Megamania ( for the Atari 2600)

and

 

Attack of the Timelord ( for the Odyssey2)

Again, thank you for sharing your game!

Embarrassingly never have played any of these two! :) but glad it brings you memories :)

FYI, the game isn't Tutorvision / Tutor Pro compatible (for the 7 or so known to exist). ;)

Amazing! Now I'll need the help of intvnut at least for sake of curiosity. :)

When you decided we aren't friends?

 

Missed the memo :rolling: but still you're my friend at least from my side ;)

I was just joking. :) It looks simple but very cool. I played it until level 4, but forgot to record my high-score.

 

One "small" suggestion I will make for a future enhancement is to see if you can smooth out the sharp turns with a sine wave modulation of the movement. That would make it closer to Galaga than to Centipede. :)

No. I'm thinking is the boot code that gets stuck in Tutorvision.

 

It's the PAL vs NTSC detection code. He posted a fix a while with modifications to the prologue and epilogue ASM files. They files should be easy to find on AA but I can dig up copies off my HD if need be.

intvnut had sent me the code almost 3 months ago!

 

Please test this, it should work fine in NTSC, PAL and Tutorvision. :grin:
