atari2600land has updated his two player simultaneous play variant of a very well known russian block game. The game was previously known as “Tetris”.

Release notes:

Do more rows equal more fun? Let’s hope so. I’ve upped the number of rows to 17 to make it more in line with Tetris.

atari2600land has updated his two player simultaneous play variant of a very well known russian block game.

Release notes:

You may have noticed in the last version, the score turned red during certain times in the 2-player mode. I’ve fixed that. Please tell me if you see any red score or any suggestions/improvements I can make on this.

Fillin (23-10-2009) (A2600 Game)

atari2600land is working on a new puzzle game named Fillin. The object is to put all the Tetris-like shapes on the screen into a 6×6 box. I need a way to find out if the box is full so you can move on to the next puzzle.

Circus Calacticus (24-10-2009) (A2600 Game)

Circus Calcticus, which was known as “DUEL” for a short time, has been updated. It’s a futuristic gladiator tournament, where combatants duel each other to the death for the pleasure of the galactic empire. The game will comprise the player’s fighting career, with the difficulty and rewards ramping up with each new match. A match ends when one gladiator loses all of his shields, and is fried by his opponents laser beam. The player begins a match with three shields, while each new opponent gains more shields up to a maximum of five.

Squeeze v0.3 (A2600 misc)

Zufolek has update his tool which can be used to free more space in your games (codewise).

According to cd-w it does the following:

1.Merges multiple loads of the same value into a single load
2.Removes unnecessary compares with zero
3.Removes store followed immediately by load
4.Removes unnecessary consecutive loads and stores
5.Removes unused code (between a jmp and a label)
6.Removes unnecessary zero initialisation
7.Removes unused loads
8.Converts subroutines into jmps
9.Converts load/tax into lax
10.Converts and/tax into lxa
11.Converts sequences of short jumps into a single jump

Release notes:

Uploaded version 0.3, which is probably about as good as it will get without a lot more work. I suppose I should mention it is free, works with every game I’ve tested, and requires no knowledge of assembly to use. Enjoy!
