New Atari 2600 Homebrew - Dragon Racer: Trials of the Wyrm
« on: June 07, 2018, 00:35:54 AM »
AA member Revontuli has released a new title for the Atari 2600 called Dragon Racer: Trials of the Wyrm
In the game, dragons compete to collect gems for their hoard across a variety of locations.  Each new gem only appears after the last has been taken, revealing a path through each treacherous track.

The first to collect 32 gems wins!  Alternatively, a player might decide to run a time trial - in which case they must try to run through three laps of a track in the fastest time possible.  The scoreboard will show how many gems each player has collected, or the time/laps the player has during the time trial.

Select: Choose track - As you look at each layout, you can see the gems revealing the path you will need to take.

Difficulty (Left/Right):
AA: Two Human Players
AB: Human Player Solo Time Trial
BA: Human Player vs Fast AI
BB: Human Player vs Slow AI

Use your joystick to change the speed and direction of your dragon.

Pressing the joystick button will have a dragon breathe fire, which is somewhat steerable.  If a dragon hits a wall or their opponent's fire, they will disintegrate and reform slightly behind the next gem on the track, stunned for a few seconds.

Going to the final frontier, gaming...
