The Gizzle Wap and the Great Blizzard (19-12-2016) (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 actually sings part of Pat a Pan when something is buried in the snow.
2. Fixed a bug where the life bar flips if too much damage is done.
3. The Moum Moum’s life bar flashes yellow correctly when hit by a vortex.
4. You can now dig under a tree to find food, Occasionally you may find something.
5. A Fraze branch will heal the Moum Moum
6. Bacon will heal the Gizzle Wap.

The Gizzle Wap and the Great Blizzard (15-12-2016) (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. Implemented a damage routine (not fully refined yet). Bars will flash red if the Gizzle Wap takes damage and Yellow if the Moum Moum takes damage. Also you will hear them make a sound if they are hit.
2. The left health bar is the Moum Moum’s life the right health bar is the Gizzle Wap’s
3. The Gizzle Wap and the Moum Moum will take damage if hit by the Crab, Ghost and Cruncher.
4. Added a firn vortex that flies across the screen. Avoid it. It will hurt you.
5. Both the Gizzle Wap and Moum Moum will take damage over time from the cold.

Space Car ’78 (14-12-2016) (A2600 Game)

Wally’s Folly updated Space Car ’78. Make sure keeping your vehicle on the street while avoiding obstacles.

Release notes:

I had originally expected, even when thinking of targeting a dozen or more platforms, to create several Atari 2600 games before tiring of it … but I have been researching the Atari 8 bit recently and I am keen to get to this platform sooner rather than later… so this is the end of the Atari 2600 work for a while.

Crash Course (14-12-2016) (A2600 Game)

Crash Course is a brandnew Atari VCS game by Captain Spazer.

You drive a car on a road and try to dodge cars as you drive past them. The goal is to reach the top of the screen which will raise the difficulty making the cars go even faster. You get 3 missiles to shoot down the other cars in your way, but you only get 3 missiles, they can be refilled by reaching the top of the screen. Controls are: left and right to jump lanes, firebutton to fire your missiles, switchreset to start the game from the titlescreen, restart in the game and at the Game Over screen

Denial ’77 (26-09-2016) (A2600 Game)

Yet another project by Wally, just a little bit older than the previous one, is Denial ’77. The game is loosely modelled on Space Zap, an arcade game from 1980.

You’re protecting the base in the centre, move the joystick in the direction you want to fire. The base heats up when you fire, changing colour and expanding. The base firing rate slows as the base heats up. The base also heats up when hit. It’s game over if the base hit when it is overheated. The level number is the only scoring mechanism.

Fixed the fake sword in game 1 along with some code cleanup. But I now need to figure out how to free up bank 8 it seems alone in a new bank has about 2700 bytes but in the 32k it only has 140 bytes anyway here’s an update.
