Carnival games

Recommended Posts

I'm no programmer (trying to learn though and starting with the 2600), but I think a fun mini collection of games on the jag would be carnival/old school arcade games. Whack a mole really comes to mind for using the jags keypad in relation to what mole to hit. Skeeball could use the rotary spinner for how hard to throw by spinning the spinner(use a and c to move ball left and right and b to release?). Anyone up to the task?

Doubtful, anyone with the time and ability to program the Jag will usually have their own projects they want to work on.

There was a game on Arcade, and on Colecovision called Carnival. It is considered to be one of the best titles for Colecovision. It would be nice with an equivalent (with improved graphics) for the Atari Jaguar.

Please find this video of a technology demonstrator for a Carnival (shooting gallery) game:
