New Atari 2600 Homebrew - Dare Devil
« on: January 04, 2019, 22:31:38 PM »
AA member Muddyfunster has released a new homebrew title for the 2600 called Dare Devil.  The game was inspired by the 2600 game Parachute. 




Playing

Right now there are 3 game modes in the test binary,
Game 1 you start from 14,000 ft (7 screens + landing) (starts slow)
Game 2 you start from 10,000 ft (5 screens + landing) (starts medium)
Game 3 you start from 6,000ft  (3 screens + landing) (starts faster)

Avoid obstacles like hot air balloons and airplanes.

Each Game has  3 different levels as tests, complete 1 to get to 2, and so on, graphics do not change between screens or levels yet, as I said early days.

As you progress through each screen in the level, you will speed up a little, starting slow, eventually going quite fast.

Land in the circle for maximum points, if you are going too fast, you will crater.

Controls

Fire start after selecting your game, fire also starts you on the intro screen.
Left and right to move left and right
Down to speed up a little, like a zoom mode, useful for zooming through small gaps.
Up to slow your descent by about 30%, useful for those, OMG I misjudged how close the next obstacle is moments

Scoring

Score points by progressing through each screen and landing.

Going to the final frontier, gaming...

That looks very similar to another homebrew game - the gameplay is the same but with a military theme.


EDIT: Sorry - my mistake - the OP mentioned the original game. I thought the original was homebrew - which had ear splittingly bad music.
