Fantastic as always John. If I may, someday, just putting it out there, if you ever decide to tackle a remake of Mr Do on the 2600, I may actually find you and hug you 😁

I agree! You would get two hugs!

I really like Gorf! I’m excited to see a better version coming to the 2600! My favorite version so far is on the Colecovision.

Gorf Arcade is still in the works. There are a few other Champ Games that are in the pipeline ahead of it at the moment (Zoo Keeper, Avalanche, Robotron). Gorf Arcade will likely happen sometime in 2021.

TLDR:  read succinct response above. :D 

 

Hi there! 

 

Darn - I meant to reply to this last week but I totally spaced!  🥴

 

Unfortunately there hasn't been any progress on Gorf Arcade since February.  We have added in all the speech phrases (thanks @Nathan Strum!) and the game is somewhat playable, but we probably won't have a demo available until the end of the year when we hope to debut it on @ZeroPage Homebrew's Twitch stream. :D 

 

The good news is that we have finished Avalanche and Zoo Keeper (both expected to be released in the Atari Age store in October) and we have made great improvements to Robotron (now named RobotWar:2600) and are have almost completed development.  We're in that annoying phase where we are looking for more ROM to add in bells and whistles.  We originally had to remove the scoring animation story sequence to fit in all of the new options like co-op, two players, additional sound fx and animations, etc. but I am happy to report I was able to squeeze it all back in. :thumbsup:  Right now I'm focusing on fixing intermittent screen rolls on wave 30 and 40 advanced (when there are 100+ enemies on the screen).  We plan on releasing Robo-X in early 2021 (David Exton aka @liveinabin is making great progress with the artwork!).

 

Well, I guess this ended up being an update for Gorf Arcade and Robotron. ;) 

 

Thanks,

John

 I second this badassery! Just so many things to look forward to! Thanks so much for the updates! It’s a blessed time to be a 2600 fan! Your spoiling us with all of these CO-OP additions! Sorry I guess all of my sentences when discussing your games must end with!!

You could always get around any copyright stuff and call it Gorf! Or Galactic Orbiting Robot Force would be fine.
