New Atari 2600 Homebrew - Color Gotcha
« on: July 08, 2016, 01:04:06 AM »
Atari Age member LS_Dracon has released a brand new game for the Atari 2600 that is an adaptation of the arcade game Color Gotcha.  Yes, Color Gotcha, which was the first color video game ever.  The original Gotcha was released by Atari in 1973 and this was the first controversial game ever because of the "breasts" used to control the player characters.  In turns out there was a color version later done by Atari and that recently discovered by Ed Fries. 

Gameplay is very simple, as are the graphics, which make it an easy game to adapt for the 2600!  The game is currently only for two players but there are plans to make a version with an AI to allow for one player only. 

The rules of the game are simple:  the "square" player chases the "plus" player and tries to catch the plus symbol to earn points.

Be sure to go to the development thread (link below) to get the latest binary.  The image below just gives you an idea of how the game looks but not how it plays.

Going to the final frontier, gaming...
