New Atari 2600 Homebrew - Zoo Keeper
« on: December 01, 2018, 17:49:42 PM »
Champ Games is working on yet another arcade port for the Atari 2600 and this time the game is Zoo Keeper.  If this is anything like their other games, this will be fantastic.  Here is an image of the game as it is now...


There's a thread about the game now on AA:  Zoo Keeper (2600, Champ Games)

Champ Games develop some fantastic games for the 2600, so  this one should be another great title by them.

That's looking good! We need a 5200 version also. I set the recorded location high score recently on Zoo Keeper at: http://www.daytonaarcademuseum.com... :-)

That looks incredible. I never cease to be amazed at how far that hardware can be pushed.

Yes it is.  There's an Atari 8-bit version being developed as a clone of the game.  I'm sure that could be converted to the 5200 at some point.  Awesome on the high score!
