Post by: TrekMD on January 13, 2015, 04:06:50 AM
Atari Age user Retro Lord is working on another fun game for the 2600, programmed in Batari Basic. The is called Knight Kuest and here is more information about it:

Are you ready for a fantasy adventure of a lifetime? If so, then put on your shining armor and grab your shimmering sword of justice and venture forth from your castle into vast and dangerous forests, life threatening caves and into the Castle of Doom where you must slay it's evil master: Nogard and rescue the princess from his claws. Many of you will never make it too Nogard, but we will honor your memories with song, forever.
