SOUL OF THE BEAST

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone !

 

I'm happy to say my first Atari 2600 game SOUL OF THE BEAST inspired by the 1989 Amiga classic, is done !

 

It features more than 15 unique enemy types, variants, and items. Non-linear level design, in a standard 4K NTSC ROM.

 

I'm hoping to move forward with a cart release and a PAL version.

https://aeriform.itch.io/beast I hope you check it out !

I'm a fan of this franchise started in Amiga, but I only met it through Genesis / Megadrive. My congratulations on the conversion to our beloved atari 2600. :-o

Neat.  Would have liked to have a jump button, but for 4k, very nice.  Ability to leave a tip is appreciated.

This is gorgeous, thanks for sharing it!  I bet you could get some volunteers for adding sounds and fine-tuning the sprite physics / gameplay with this strong proof of concept.  I have my boxed copies of BEAST 1-3 for Amiga sitting in my bookcase, here - so this is a treat!  If only my Amiga still worked... 😕

Looks pretty damn cool! I always love seeing well-made remakes like this one :)

I don’t suppose there will ever be a cartridge release?

One is planned, currently negotiating and prep
