AA members NRV, MrFish, Therealbountybob, Synthpopalooza, and VinsCool have released a new game for the Atari 8-Bit computers called Raymaze 2000.
Raymaze 2000 is an action game that is based on the Taito arcade game Raimais (from 1988) without being a direct port.
It has a set of 14 levels based on the original ones, with classic enemies and powerups, but also adds a lot of new things:
- a new branch of 17 original levels
- new enemy behaviors
- some new powerups and secrets
- improved controls and also new ways of controlling your vehicle
- 3 difficulty levels (Casual, Medium, Expert)
- other new gameplay ideas
NTSC vs PAL:
If you want to play in the emulator, then is better to choose the NTSC version. Not only because of the 60 fps, but also because the game speeds, colors, music, sounds, were first created for NTSC and later translated for PAL. Both versions are pretty similar anyway, let's say over 95%.. but there are some things you cannot replicate perfectly, like the colors and some timings.
The game needs an A8 computer with 64K.
