New Atari 7800 Homebrew - Plink
« on: November 15, 2020, 17:45:51 PM »
Introducing Plink, a new 1 or 2 player paddle game for the 7800, by AA member SmittyB.

This is a small project SmittyB started with the intention to have something completed by the end of the year so isn't something too complicated. The goal is simply to rack up your score by hitting blocks or bouncing the ball off the right side of the screen.

The 2 player mode is choppy at the moment where things aren't optimised but it's playable enough.

It currently all fits in 32K, but SmittyB is using a 128K+RAM format as the game uses the cart RAM for the background effects.

It uses the paddle controllers also, which is not common with the 7800.
