The Gizzle Wap and the Great Blizzard (07-12-2016) (A2600 Game)

Mountain King updated his new WIP Atari VCS game The Gizzle Wap and the Great Blizzard.

It’s the holidays in Sundra. A great blizzard hit the land suddenly trapping anyone that was unfortunate enough to be caught outside. You play as the Gizzle Wap and the Moum Moum searching the land for survivors. Move the Gizzle Wap left and right and press up to jump. The Moum Moum will follow. Press the fire button to dig in the snow to search.

Listen closely to the Moum Moum. He has a better sense of where a creature might be buried. Dig where he sings. You may have to scan an area more than once to find something. He will not sing if he is standing on the Gizzle Wap or if he is too high in the sky.

Changes:

1. The Moum Moum will carry away whatever you find to safety and then fly back.
2. The dog is animated, but will run away. Catch him to rescue him.
3. The sleepy ghost will float around. Dig another hole and let him land in it to bury him back in the ground.
4. The Crab will attack you and move back and forth. Dig a hole and let him fall in. (no damage yet)
5. Everything else will be carried off by the Moum Moum when they are touched.

Rock Concert (Build 2) (A2600 Game)

A trio of rocks are playing instruments at a concert, they’re playing rock music (or as close as you can get to it on the Atari 2600.) Pressing the fire button will switch the game from the title screen to the main game. In the game, rocks are falling onto your keyboard. Your job is to pick them up and put them into the tray below. But don’t even touch the red hot rocks, they’ll burn you. But since I just started this earlier today, there are no rocks to pick up yet. But you can move the arm and hand around. Pressing the fire button in the game will pick up rocks. Hold on to the rocks with the fire button and then drop them into the tray below by letting go of the fire button.

Kickman v1.003 (A2600 Game)

Kickman aka Unicycle Balloon Kicker by darryl1970 is a simple version of a balloon-popping uni-cyclist.

The author describes the making of in such a nice way, so we have to quote it:

I was bored, so I drew a KickMan uni-cyclist for the VCS. Since I had that sprite, I decided to draw a balloon. Since I had a cyclist and a balloon, I decided to animate them. I then added the moving balloons and ability to kick. Since I had the animation, I decided to add a simple tune. Since I had all of that, I decided to add a background.

The game already plays nice and is colorful, but it’s not yet complete. If the author keeps on working on this, very much depends on user feedback, as usual.

The Gizzle Wap and The Strange Red Tree (Update 86) (A2600 Game)

The Gizzle Wap and The Strange Red Tree is a game for Atari VCS by Mountain King.

Deep in the JThainian forest, in the clearing where the Zazzle Flies play a Strange Red Tree took root over night. It made an unsettling hum and gave off a noxious odor poisoning many of the flies. Camy, the strongest of his brood sought help from the defender of the woods, a small bouncing creature known as the Gizzle Wap. He would know what to do.

The Gizzle Waps solution was simple: Remove the Strange Red Tree. But there was another problem. Coinciding with the appearance of the red tree came the Myrmica a race of mindless insects that feed upon the inhabitants of the forest. Even worse the Myrmica never come alone. They serve the Invicta. Unlike the Myrmica, the Invicta are cunning and tenacious. They will not be satisfied until they control the entire forest or see its destruction. The tree is most certainly their machination.

The plan to remove the tree and defeat the Invicta was not as simple. The only creatures strong enough to pull the tree out of the ground are the Pegsi. The Gizzle Wap would attract the Pegsi to the clearing with cloud fruit and convince them to remove the Red Tree. Once the tree has been removed, the Invctas magic will be weakened and their lair should be revealed. The final step will be to confront the Invicta.

Changes:

1. The Red Tree spreads an invisible cloud of poison when you remove the tree from the clearing. The Gizzle Wap is not immune. You will continue to take damage until you find and reveal the Invicta’s lair. You don’t have a lot of time.
2. The final fight with the Invicta Prime is more dynamic. There is more than one way to defeat him.
3. Changed the score font to a custom font “Leaf” on both the title screen and game.
4. Lightened the colors of the Culex and the Wasp so they can be seen better on real hardware.
5. Added the Zazzle fly to the Final cut scene.
6. Tweaked the back round slightly in the final cut scene.
7. Added the Gizzle Wap’s friends to the post attract scene.
