New Atari 5200 Homebrew - Scramble!
« on: August 15, 2018, 01:19:46 AM »
AA member playsoft has created a very impressive port of the arcade game Scramble for the Atari 5200!  The game looks, sounds, and plays great!  Any fan of the arcade should have a blast with this.  I sure hope this sees a cart release!

Instructions:

Press a trigger or start and you'll see the options screen.

Press the numeric key of the option to step through the different settings.
1. Difficulty - select between Normal and Easy.
2. Tunnels - select between Wide and Normal.

By default Wide is selected which makes the tunnel section possible with the 5200 non-centering joystick.

If you play with a digital (or centering) joystick then you should select Normal tunnels.

3. Ship size - (usually...) selects between Normal and Small.

4. Rockets - select between Normal and Fast.

5. Autofire - select between Off, Fast and Slow.

6. Trigger 1 - select between Missiles and Both.

This allows you to play with a single button joystick. If you select both then the (main) trigger will both fire a missile and drop a bomb.

7. Lives - select between 3, 4 and 5.

8. Scroll - select between Normal and Fast.

Here is a video of the game in action:


Going to the final frontier, gaming...

Looks great, one of my favorites on the C64, and also one of the first games on the C64 we (my cousin and I) cracked :D
