SpideX (new home brew) Released for the Atari Jaguar

Recommended Posts

I release a new homebrew for the Atari Jaguar today, the game is called SpideX.

It was originally released in 2019 for the Vectrex, however, I have re-worked all the graphics (now featuring raster graphics)

The new game now also has a 2 player mode, and music by Rimsky-Korsakov, and Khachaturian.

It can be ordered here: http://tjocktv.se/product/spidex-atari-jaguar/

Enjoy

I hope that someone is willing to help me with this? So let's see what happens...

 

This was actually my first project for the Jag, but I shifted focus to Wormhole for a while. Then I got the opportunity to test my games using a Skunkboard (thanks to the person who helped me with that).

 

Out of all my projects for the Jag, this was just so much fun to play, so I thought it would be a shame to not release it. As this game was really my learning project (did some mistakes in the beginning), I had to apply what I learned to this game, and to make some final touches on the presentation.

 

In one player mode you can control the spider using the D-pads on both joy-pads. One for the walk direction, and the other for the fire direction. In both one, and two player mode you can either use the numeric keypad for the fire direction, or hold button B to toggle between fire mode, and walk mode.

 

The game idea itself is quite well tested by all people who played it on the Vectrex. I have implemented changes based on the feedback I got from them.

That game looks both fun and challenging. Are there any plans for binary download sales once the Jag GameDrive hits full circulation?

That might be a good idea once the GameDrive hits full circulation. The game would also need to be thoroughly tested on the GameDrive before such release.
