One step further: moving monsters :-)



They can have more than 3 colors - but of course, they still need to be drawn by Tobias :-)
(as this is only a test-shape)

There are just a few weeks left for the deadline of the abbuc software contest - so you might have a look to level one and two...

This looks really good!  Is it a game that can be ported to the Atari 5200?

I do not know the EXACT differences between the 8 bit Computer and the 5200 (the Sound, obvious), but it should be possible...

why you ask?

Just in case you may be interested in porting it over to the console.  ;)

The only real differences are the analogue controllers and the RAM, the 5200 only has 16k so that is probably going to cause you problems.

Oh, than it is not possible, sorry.

My game needs nearly all RAM between $0700 and $BFFF, so no chance to port over to the 5200 without a complete redesign

What a pity :-(

That is a shame indeed but good to see Android in there as a platform that will see the game ported to.  :)

Maybe you want to have a look to a little "making of"?
