This looks fantastic but, unfortunately, I am struggling to get it to run.  I can't see any other users reporting a problem so it must be something I'm doing wrong.

 

I'm using the Atari800 emulator, version 4.2.0, set as an Atari 800XL PAL with 64K RAM.  The title screen appears fine, the round intro screen is also fine (background graphics and bombs all ok), but when the Gacek (player) sprite appears it is corrupted.  I can move for a split second or two and then the emulator crashes.  Other games are fine.

 

Any thoughts?  Is it a setting I've missed?

Recent versions need 128k.

Ah, that's what I was missing - thanks so much!  After getting that working I tried the VBXE version which, for me, involved using a different emulator (Altirra) as I couldn't find that Atari800 had VXBE support.

 

Wow... I'm blown away with how good it is!  Both versions play really well, but this one looks amazing too.  Many thanks to shanti77 for such excellent work.

Thanks, feedback like this is motivating, I hope my next game will be even better.

Gacek final+

 

Small changes:
- improved screen with bonus accrual for NTSC version
- corrected letters and mummies (slight shift)

 

I think this is the final version.

 

----------------------------

VBXE version needs ATARI + VBXE + 64KB RAM

normal version needs Atari PAL/NTSC+128KB RAM 

ABBUC version needs Atari + 64KB RAM

Even if it is final I will still hope for better bombs in the "normal" version. 😉

 

Cluster Bombs or Mirv's ?!?  ;-)

 

Or the holy hand grenade(s) of Antioch ?  ;-)

It's fantastic. Both the "Normal" version and the VBXE version. 
I have only now tried it on the original hardware. No errors noticed. :cool:
It plays great. Great arcade conversion. Thanks. :thumbsup:

I will soon install a VBXE to enjoy this game, but the basic version is already excellent, I just regret a little that the bombs are black,

otherwise the handling is perfect, I find the same gameplay sensations with the version BombJack from 1985 on Amstrad CPC.
