New Atari 2600 Homebrew - Sand Castles
« on: November 28, 2017, 01:10:30 AM »
AA member metalbabble has made available a new game for the Atari 2600 called Sand Castles.  The game is a side-scroller/platformer.  Here are some details about the game:
  • Shoot to defeat monsters to clear each round (if you spend to much time in a level, you’ll get chased by the “reaper”)
  • Health bar is to the bottom-right, lives to the bottom left
  • Left difficulty switch to control game difficulty (b=longer time before reaper, health restored each level)
  • Right difficulty switch turns music on/off.
  • Works with SEGA Genesis controllers with multiple buttons supported: B to shoot, C to jump – of course it also works with the 2600 joystick, where “up” jumps.
  • DPC+ kernel (tested in Stella, and Harmony cartridge)



Going to the final frontier, gaming...

I will, eventually!  I'm have others that I've written that I need to format for the forum, though.
