Title: New Atari 2600 Homebrew - Doom Patrol!
Post by: TrekMD on July 04, 2015, 15:16:18 PM
[align=center:4pthbqgu][size=120]AA member winkdot is at it again! Here is a brand new homebrew game for the Atari 2600 written on batar BASIC and the DPC+ kernel: Doom Patrol!

The Story:

As a member of the United Astrocorporation Unlimited (UAU) your mission is to infiltrate the Technotechnics base and destroy their super weapon.
 
Intel:
In order to penetrate the base, you must obtain both keys and then make a dash to destroy the super weapon.
The Technotechnics base walls are deadly, avoid them. The base also has automatic random wall defence that will appear in a random fashion. Avoid them.
 
Know your tank:
 
Your tank is equipped with a slightly defective main weapon the UAU purchased on contract. Sometimes the missile explodes prior to making contact. It will destroy ground and air targets. It seems to work better at short ranges. The UAU programmers are working to improve it. You have two shields on each tank. A shield unit can be replinshed if you find an armor icon. Your tank has improved speed, use this to your advantage. Staying in a room too long becomes very dangerous. You have 3 tanks in which to complete the mission. If sucessful, you will attack again against a stronger enemy.
 
Control:
 
At the title screen press the fire button to start. The fire button also starts a new game at the game over screen.
 
Joystick controls the tank in four directions.
 
Joystick button fires a missile in the direction the tank is facing.[/size]

Looks fantastic considering it's a 2600 game.
