Callisto - New Atari XE/XL Homebrew

[size=240]Atari XL/XE[/size][/b]

By the twenty third century, humanity had finally managed to stop fighting and get it's collective act together for just long enough to begin a first great push into space, setting up small but thriving colonies first on our own moon and soon afterwards on other worlds and moons within our own galaxy.



But all of mankind's recent interplanetary activity has drawn unwanted attention from beyond the stars and a collection of alien races has turned up to steal all of our fun toys and kill any human who doesn't like that idea. Since our most remote colonies to date are on the moons of Jupiter, that's where first contact took place and four moons in particular have become the stronghold from which the invading forces are working.



So as a young, brave and probably foolhardy independently contracted pilot of the United Earth Forces, you must clamber into your DeathKiller Mk. 7 spaceship, fling yourself off across space towards Jupiter and show those occupying alien forces just what happens when someone messes with Earthlings!

Looks like  a fun one!  And I like that theme music!  :)  Maybe they'll port it over to the 5200 at some point!

Going to the final frontier, gaming...

This is TMR's work, isn't it? Clever man. RG is much the worse for the fact that a fellow with a genuine understanding of 8-bit machines such as he rarely posts there these days. It's clear from this that he really has really thought about how to do a horizontally scrolling shooter that plays to the advantages of the A8 platform.

Yeah it is, I wonder what score he will give it in the RG homebrew section  :P
