New Atari XL/XE/XEGS Homebrew - Time Pilot
« on: May 18, 2018, 01:20:58 AM »
AA member solo/ng has released a new homebrew for the Atari XE/XL/XEGS computers:  Time Pilot!  This is, of course, a port of the arcade game by Konami of the same name.  There is going to be a physical version of the game on cartridge but the game binary can be freely downloaded now.

The game works on every 8bit Atari with 64kB ram: XL,XE, XEGS etc. and any computers with hardware expansions.







You can learn more about the game here:

Yes, this looks fantastic.  There are, of course, various ports to home systems but this one seems to be as close to the arcade as you can make it in a retro system/computer.

This is simply mind-blowing stuff, for the coding and engine achievement alone is something else..these are gaming 8bit dev gods in my opinion.
