This is a new game for the Atari 7800 by AA member Muddyfunster (MuddyVision) with the title E.X.O.  The game is still in development but a demo ROM is available to try.  It only works with A7800 or JSA7800 emulators due to the file size.


Elite Xeno Operations.

Your objective is to rescue your 4 team members from the prison world of Maldrax.


E.X.O needs a two button controller.

Button 1 is mapped to lasers (useful for softer targets, mines, probes).

Button 2 is mapped to rockets. (default is a "down" rocket, rockets can be flicked upwards by using up+button 2.

Up activates thrust / engines.

left and right to move left and right.

Gameplay & Objective

Each level has a generator and a security code. To rescue the team member and leave the level, you need both.

You will not be able to get to the security code until you have disabled the generator and weakened the security systems that block the way. (Generator -> Code -> Exit)

Rockets are limited, use them sparingly! (future builds will have replenishment crates).

User Interface in game:

Left to right : room name, rockets remaining, lives remaining, security code retrieved, generator destroyed (lights go green when collected/destroyed).

You will need to learn the map and plan your strategy accordingly.

Good luck operative!

Known Issues

There are some bugs on the squish list.

Rocket explosions can glitch

On some screens you can fall through into the UI.(but you can fly back out again as a bonus :) !)
