Title: New Atari 2600 Homebrew - Spaceman Splorf: Planet of Doom
Post by: TrekMD on August 27, 2016, 21:26:46 PM
The team from Pond Software programmed a game for the C64 called Spaceman Splorf, with graphics and music by Vanja Utne.  Just for fun, they're now working on creating a version for the Atari 2600. They have tried to recreate the gameplay and graphics experience of that C64 version as closely as can be done on the 2600.  You can check out a video here:

Check out the original C64 version here:  SPACEMAN SPLORF: Planet of Doom (http://pondsoft.uk/splorf.html).

The game looks pretty cool, I think, in this adaptation for the good'ol 2600.   Not sure how they plan to release the game but I wanted to share the news here.  Check the AA thread here:  Spaceman Splorf - new game coming soon! (http://pondsoft.uk/splorf.html)
