Escape North Korea is now released! (See Inside)

Recommended Posts

Airshack, has written an original new game in 100% assembly language for the TI-99/4A!  It's being released free to the TI community.  I admit it, I'm biased, I love the concept, but it's no lie when I tell you it's a damn good game!  It plays well, and even has a few puzzles to go with the game play and will not easily be beat in the first few plays like some games, but that's okay, he's included a practice mode! ;)

 

There are two different .BIN images, the ENK8 image is for the FlashROM or FinalGROM and the ENK512 image is for the UberGROM board.  You can use either image in Classic 99.  If you want to make your own cartridge a label is also included. A manual in .PDF format is also included. 

 

This game took him a few years to make as he amazingly learned assembly language along the way, so don't be shy, if you like it, please leave a message here to let him know.

 

CAPS LOCK UP!  See you in the south!

Is the program available in the standard E/A Option 5 format, by chance? 

Here's the E/A Option 5 files on a .dsk image for you:

I've got very limited computer time today due to the missus not wanting me glued to it but I just tried this game and it's brilliant!  I got past some killer bees and this guy said something about Kim Jong Un lol  

 

I'll have to give it more attention later on, it's looking fantastic

OK stupid question: what are the controls for the game? I can't get anything to move with Classic 99 except the game selection...

That's not a stupid question at all.  The games only controls on real iron are  joystick related, so in Classic 99 you could set the Joystick 1 to "keyboard" and then use the arrow keys and tab as the fire button..

Works on real metal via Joystick-1. On Classic99 you may use PC Keyboard arrow keys to navigate and tab-key to button-select.

 

Its a game of stealth so no shooting, only maneuvering and avoiding.

Has anyone collected all nine items and escaped? 
 

Finishing with more than five minutes remaining is a pretty good score.

 

I may post a few tutorial videos if y’all get stuck.

The game is Speech Synth enabled which sounds best on real hardware. The speech is sometimes garbled sounding on emulation. Real Metal recommended.

PRO TIP: Keep an eye on your fuel and health levels! Kim laughed at you for running out of fuel.

You may find you’ll need to return to the minefield HealthKit (Red Cross) multiple times in order to restore your health. So, expect the bees to track you down.

 

The buildings seem to drain your health as you maneuver inside them.
 

Something to do with radiation and/or biohazards? A visit to the HealthKit in between building entries may be wise.

This might be an interesting game for the contest thread.  Anyone who wants it can have it, and since it's new most people are probably about the same skill level not having decades of practice under their belts.

Since you only get ten minutes to escape the time remaining upon completion is your score. 
 

High score = time remaining.
 

I’d be interested in seeing how quickly AtariAgers can finish.

  During the research phase I went to great lengths to learn about the situation in North Korea. One of my main goals was to avoid mocking the brave souls whom have risked or lost their lives seeking freedom.

 

   If anything, this game is a tribute to Oh Song Chong, the fellow who brazenly escaped North Korea right through the insanely secure Joint Security Area. 
 

   The only mockery in the game is aimed at Kim Jung Un so that shouldn’t offend anyone. 
 

   This is a game of stealth with zero weaponry and none of the usual death animations and gore. That was intentional.

 

   Come to think of it I may have created the most politically correct game ever. ;)
