This is pretty cool, plays great. Personally I have nothing against the graphics, they are more than "good enough" in quality. The sound though feels like it could have used a bit more love.  I like it, thanks for the news on this release!

Looks like a direct port of the Atari 5200/8-bit version.  It's a pretty good port, though I imagine the C64 could handle more colorful sprites?

forgive my nubeness.  is there a way to convert the .crt file to either a .d64 or .prg file that can be used on a sd2iec?

It is a cartridge file, which will (likely) reside at $C000.  BITD there were a number of programs to convert cartridge binaries into program (PRG) loaders.  I have a couple on disk stashed away, but you can likely find on in a quick Google.

 

Here are a couple of external sources with ideas:

 

Using VICE to do the job

An on-line CRT to PRG converter

Thank you for the info!  This will come in handy in the future Im sure.  Here is a file of joust that works on sd2iec. Got this from

Yeah, a cracked/trained version of Joust appeared on CSDb the same day the CRT was released to the public. I suppose it was leaked to selected parties a little ahead of time, or otherwise some groups are stand-by 24 hours a day ready to crack whatever new just was posted.

The round eggs can be forgiven, but those wretched sound effects...!  :lol:

 

Still, very cool to see after all this time.  :)

It wasn’t leaked to anyone.  The only place that got it was games that weren’t.

I tried it under Vice.   Apart from the sound obviously, the other thing that annoyed me was having a white border.   I think it would look better if it was black to match the playfield.
