New Atari Lynx Hombrew - Adventures of Jungle Jack
« on: August 20, 2016, 00:33:55 AM »
AA  user LX.Net has released a new beta for a game he is working on for the Atari Lynx:  Adventures of Jungle Jack.  The game is a clone and a tribute to a certain Atari 2600 title. 


Instructions:
- Download Attached File junglejackbeta1.lnx.txt and rename to jungle.lnx
- Open with Handy/Mednafen/Libretro to play in an emulator or  upload to Lynxman's Flashcart or SainT's LynxSD cartridge.
- Play & enjoy!

Gameplay:
Jack is trying to find 32 treasures in the dangerous jungle within 20 minutes. Pick up treasures by walking over them. Don't walk into fire, snakes, scorpions, pits or open crocodile mouths. Jump with A over dangers or to catch a liana. Release the liana by pressing down. Press up or down to go on ladder. Get off ladder by pressing left or right at the top or bottom of ladder. Don't loose your third life nor run out of time or it's game over. Can you survive the perils of the jungle and make Jack a rich man?
 
This is a beta release. Free to play, not for sale. No-one should make money from this game.  Bug reports are appreciated, so LZ.NET can get them out and make this into a final release.


Going to the final frontier, gaming...
