Original contest announcement below:

 

Fans of the popular four-player Atari 2600 game Warlords (itself based on an arcade game of the same name) will be happy to learn that 2600 enthusiast Darrell Spice Jr. is nearly finished with Medieval Mayhem, an updated take on Warlords. While the original version from Atari is still a blast to play, Medieval Mayhem adds arcade features such as the launch dragon, multiple fireballs and a level of polish missing from the original 2600 release. It also includes a menu to select options before starting the game.

 

AtariAge and Darrell Spice Jr. are sponsoring a contest to create original artwork for Medieval MayhemThis label artwork will appear on all copies of Medieval Mayhem, which will be available through the AtariAge Store. This artwork will also be featured on the cover of the manual created for Medieval Mayhem. The winner of the contest will receive a copy of Medieval Mayhem in cartridge form, featuring their winning label design. The winner will also receive a $50 gift certificate in the AtariAge Store. The contest will run until 11:59pm (CST), Sunday, November 12th, 2006. To learn how to enter, please visit the Medieval Mayhem Label Contest page!

Is this a hack or a completely new game?

Originally Darrell started hacking Warlods, but then decided to start from scratch so there would be no issues with having cartridges made. So Medieval Mayhem is a completely new game.

Yeah, it'd be nice if these contests could run three weeks instead. Two weeks isn't really much time.

Maybe they just don't want you to automatically win again.

 

j/k ;)

I will extend the contest out another week to give people some extra time.

You aint seen nothing yet! Check my blog for what's happening to the castes :D

Darrell, just a thought-- maybe the bottom wall issue will resolve if you bump the brick pattern 1 pixel so the the wall's outside edges in the ball's playfield will be smooth to avoid those irratic ball behaviors you described in your blog. Hope it helps.

cant wait to see some labels.

Me too! Well, the deadline is now two weeks away (could have been one week if not for Al's extention!). I thought to see a few entries posted in the contest page by now.

Guess everyone is using the time to work hard on their labels to surprize us with an entry at the closing hour.

Sorry, I wanted to get the labels up this weekend but have been so damn busy getting ready for the VGXPO this upcoming weekend. I'll endeavor to get the first entries I've received online tonight..

Unfortunately I did not have time to post the initial labels (I have several now) before I left for the VGXPO and the earliest I will be able to post them is next Wednesday. I will extend the contest by another week if necessary.
