It's pretty fun too. I wonder what folks will use the engine for in the future.

No one has taken me up on my offer yet, but I'm hoping for a whole lot more games with RevEng's 7800basic in the future.  You may have already posted about it, TrekMD, but there is another game in development named "Graze" from AA user Mord that looks great... it's in the Homebrew forum at AA.

7800basic is amazing, and I'll be making another game in the future I'm sure, and I'll certainly share it here too. :)

I loved Kaboom and this looks to be brilliant too, I hope that work continues pushing the generally unappreciated 7800 to its limits

bravo

Looks like a big graphics upgrade over the VCS version.  Does it use the standard 7800 controllers or the VCS paddles?  It may be a first if it uses the paddles, as I'm not sure any other 7800 titles do!?!

It uses the standard 7800 controller.  I think Atarius made it more as an experiment so people could use the code to create new projects.  He can say more about it since he does visit RVG as well.
