New Atari 2600 Homebrew - Bass Fishing Tournament
« on: October 27, 2019, 19:40:25 PM »
AA member TwentySixHundred has just release a new homebrew title for the 2600 called Bass Fishing Tournament.  The game is still in development but, so far, looks really nice.


This game has a fairly straight forward premise.  You need to catch as many fish as you can in the provided time given before the weigh in. The deeper you snag a fish the more they're worth in weight. Bigger fish, however, are stronger and more forceful making it no easy task to land them in your boat.

Pro Tip: There is rumors of a big ol' lunker lurking around the depths but very rarely pops his head out. If you see him and have the chance to snag him, go for it, he's worth his weight. Although he will put up a decent fight, so be prepared, it wont be easy.

Title Screen:

Simple animated titlescreen to set the mood.

Main Game:

Start bringing in those fish and see what high score you can achieve.

Weigh In:

This game over screen shows the weight of Bass caught during the tournament. Your angler will be proud to show of his catch.

Controls and Statusbars:

-Joystick fire = Reels in lure
-Reset = Return to the title screen
-Left/Right = Directional
-Statusbar Left = Force/Tension
-Statusbar Right = Timer

To Do:

-Difficulty levels - incomplete

-New features - WIP
-Code efficiency and flow improvements - WIP
-Easter egg - incomplete
-Gameplay/reward balance - WIP
