THE END 2600 * FINISHED COMPLETE GAME *

Recommended Posts

Played a couple games of NTSC_RC3.  No bugs to report. I’ll try to test more  this week.


Played a few more games. Still no bugs to report. I think the difficulty ramps up well, but would like to hear what others think.

Got to play it tonight for the first time. I would say ditch the first 3 waves and start the game with what is now the 4th wave. I didn't lose a single ship in the game I played so in that regard it's too easy.

Just played 3 games of NTSC_R5 with Left Difficulty ser to A. The game is definitely harder. Below is my best score so far (reached wave 9). Let’s see some more scores.

Hello all !


Here is a new homebrew game I made for the Atari 2600 that I named THE END 2600.
It is based on the 1980 Konami version of the arcade game THE END.
 

** DEC 16 2019 UPDATE **

** THE END 2600 IS COMPLETE AND FINISHED **

** ATTACHED YOU WILL FIND THE FINISHED VERSIONS OF THIS GAME IN NTSC AND PAL60 **

 

** JAN 14 2020 UPDATE **

** INSTRUCTIONS FILE ATTACHED **

 

OBJECTIVE:
To destroy aliens attempting to steal bricks from your 3 defense bases.
The aliens will arrange stolen bricks to spell out  "END" at the top of the screen.

Use your joystick to move your spaceship left of right and press the button to fire to the aliens.

 

THE POINTS:
Each alien destroyed scores 40, 60 or 100 points.
Destroying aliens carrying a stolen brick scores double.
Destroying MotherShip scores 10 to 100 points. That same amount will be awarded as bonus for each brick needed to complete the word "END"

 

ANOTHER DETAILS:

You start the game with 3 spaceships.
An extra ship will be awarded when you reach 5,000 points.

Game is over when all your spaceships are destroyed or "END" is spelled out by the aliens.

 

Each level is represented by a "wave".
Every 5 "waves", the MotherShip will come down to attack your spaceship. If you destroy it, a "round" of 5 "waves" will be completed.
When a new "round" begins, the aliens with have to start spelling "END" all over again.

 

** USE OF THE LEFT DIFFICULTY SWITCH **

** A = ADVANCED  - GAME STARTS WITH 6 ALIENS AND FASTER ALIEN BULLETS **

** B = BEGINNERS - GAME STARTS WITH 3 ALIENS AND SLOW ALIEN BULLETS **

 

The game is complete and fully playable.
It has 40 levels and is fast and very challenging.

The game is not exactly in graphics as the arcade version but the gameplay is. Also I have added some animations that are not in the arcade.

 

I hope you enjoy it as much as I did making it !
Please tell me your feedback about the game and let me know if the game is too easy or too hard or if you find any bugs in the game.

 

Let's see those high scores !!

 

RaymanC

I've tried importing both the NTSC and PAL60 versions into my emulator, EMU7800 ver. 2.2, but neither will import. Will physical copies be available? I'm interested.

How soon roughly? Is there finished artwork for a cart label yet? Are you or Al able to show what the label looks like?  😁

Early Summer will be here soon. Can't wait, but then what choice do I have? Plus, I'm way behind in fulfilling my Wishlist. 😋
