Combat for the 8-bit

Recommended Posts

Fantastic!

 

Where's my little brother when I need him? :D

 

There's something I really love about seeing these appear on the 8-bit computers.

 

Thanks again...

Thank you! I have such fond memories playing this with my father. My first three cartridges were Combat (obviously), Video Pinball, and Space Invaders. I thought I was in heaven that Christmas morning when I unwrapped the VCS. 😀

Thank you kind sir!

 

Seeing the image brings back good memories... now to get some play time, I'll rope my other half or son into it.

What a perfect port. Really cool !

 

My suggestion is to get with Rob Schlortt to incorporate his AI logic from War Room (or something similar) to enable 1-player game options as well. Combat is a great 2-player game of course... but I always wished there were options to play it when another person isn't around. :)

Looks great but the only disappointment is that its 2 player...

 

My daughter looked and said its 'nice' which in her speak means its nothing like GTA 5 :)

 

Still stoked to have it, anything new on our beloved machine is a brilliant bonus..

 

Also, its so nice that Avery took dev and free time away from his normal stuff to give us an extra present....Top man...

Awesome. Essential and basic games like this were SO much fun....and I don't miss an AI for the 2nd player....the fun in those games IS that they are 2 player....

 

What I do miss is my older brother to smoke him....if only we could get some internet playing....

 

Thanks Avery ...love it !

Fantastic work.

 

This simply was THE game that we always broke out as kids when a large group of us were around someone's house.

 

Still got set up even when we'd all moved onto the Atari, Sinclair and Commodore 8 bit home computers.

I'm not used to play games, but I totally prefer 2+ players games, all against all like in current Fortnite BR.

 

Combat, Video Olympics and Warlords were in my 2600 favourites because of that.

 

Thank you, Avery!!!

I suppose my wording should have been, "my only disappointment is I don't have someone to play against :)"

 

Nothing disappointing about the port...
