Namco's Unpublished Sequel to MunchMan

Recommended Posts

Some people know that TI experimented with porting its best-known games to Intellivision.

 

Well, much later, Namco planned to roll up the market for retro-gaming by producing software for the TI-99/4A. A Namco intern told their boss to build on the nostalgia for "Munk-Man" and this is what happened.

 

MunkMan

 

I found the binary on an MSX forum earlier this year: (k2.dsk or download here) contains a single E/A 3 object file "K2" without Namco markings. The program name is K2.

Haha! I loved seeing the non-MunchMan sprites. I definitely saw Chisholm Trail, A-Maze-Ing, and Microsurgeon in the mix.

 

 

And Tombstone City, The Attack... and more :)

There were so many delicious sprites hiding in there. I even saw my favorite vampire bats. . .

It's actually a rather nice solution to the issue of 'rolling' on the 2D screen ;)

Thank you for the good words. I'm happy that y'all were entertained. There are still some sprites nobody named.


My kids are demanding that this become a playable game, so it must be.


My sprite table is full at 247 sprites, so there will be a lot of code rewritten to page in the chardefs. Besides I want 16x16 sprites too.




For background: this is a tribute to the 2004 Katamari Damacy for Playstation 2. (Lately for Nintendo Switch.)

the funny thing is that i actually got PCSX2 installed on my wife's computer so she could play her copy of Katamari Damacy before we got her Switch. :) I imagine she'll be getting the Switch version very soon!
