New Atari XL/XE Homebrew - HeliCommander
« on: February 04, 2018, 20:39:25 PM »
AA member peteym5 has announced a new game for the Atari XL/XE computers called HeliCommander.  The game is an arcade action game in the style of Chopper Command and Choplifter.  It will be released in cart form and will require at least 16K of RAM on your Atari computer.  The game has parallax scrolling to create a 3D effect, colorful scrolling objects and a detailed background.  Your enemies include choppers, tanks, bombers, trucks and bunkers. The game is currently undergoing testing and is expected either this month or next month.  Here is a video of the game in action.

Going to the final frontier, gaming...

With being an Atari 8bit whore fanboy, it is always truly welcomed when somebody creates a wonderful new Atari 8bit game  :P and boy does this look impressive..loving the parallax,  something you hardly ever see in an Atari 8bit game..looks to be excellent little homebrew and wish the author fantastic luck with this and hope it sells out.

Yes, this does look pretty nice.  It'll be cool to get this for my XEGS.  :)
