Jack and the Beanstalk (Build 57) (A2600 Game)

atari2600land has posted an update of his Atari 2600 homebrew game “Jack and the Beanstalk” which is based upon a fairy tale with the same name.

Release notes from atari2600land:

I think this will lessen the time needed for getting the two rooms for the goose and the harp, but you probably won’t notice a change. Also included is the instruction manual i’m working on in case this gets to the store.

Jack and the Beanstalk (Build 56) (A2600 Game)

atari2600land has posted an update of his Atari 2600 homebrew game “Jack and the Beanstalk” which is based upon a fairy tale with the same name.

Release notes from atari2600land:

Changed the scoring system in the castle level. I doubled the bonus points for the bonus point timer, and changed it so you only get 50 points for the goose and harp instead of 100. Does anyone have any suggestions on what i should do next?

Jack and the Beanstalk (Build 55) (A2600 Game)

atari2600land has posted an update of his Atari 2600 homebrew game “Jack and the Beanstalk” which is based upon a fairy tale with the same name.

Release notes from atari2600land:

Fixed all that watermelon stuff. I tried to make the music play the whole length of the song, but no matter what key I tried to put it in, the 2600 didn’t have the correct notes for it. Also, you can no longer carry the watermelon around once you press fire. If you press fire, you must shoot it then.

Jack and the Beanstalk (Build 53) (A2600 Game)

atari2600land has posted an update of his Atari 2600 homebrew game “Jack and the Beanstalk” which is based upon a fairy tale with the same name.

Release notes from atari2600land:

Changed the score font. This version temporarily has the new font in red at the title screen (this will not be in the final version, it’s there just for a test.) Since Greensleeves is playing in the first level, I tried to go with a sort of Elizabethian font. How did I do?

Jack and the Beanstalk (Build 52) (A2600 Game)

atari2600land has posted an update of his Atari 2600 homebrew game “Jack and the Beanstalk” which is based upon a fairy tale with the same name.

Release notes:

New version.
+Fixed the “shy” troll’s movement.
+The music shuts off during the beginning of the end.
Just beat the game for the first time (i haven’t really been trying to, though. Been too busy playtesting only the parts I’ve been working on, hence the need for passwords.)

Jack and the Beanstalk (Build 44) (A2600 Game)

atari2600land has posted an update of his Atari 2600 homebrew game “Jack and the Beanstalk” which is based upon a fairy tale with the same name.

Release notes:

New version (I know, the second one today. I have nothing else to do, so…)

Changes:
+Level 2: Added the bird swooping down (or up, if the case) to try to get you. I also added two new screens at the end so now there’s 32 screens instead of 30.

+Level 3: Fixed everything about the giant’s room, both in and after (i think.) You can no longer keep going into the giants’ room and kill him multiple times.

By the way, I forgot password “99” which is a shortcut to the giant’s room; and the music at the end is gone.

Jack and the Beanstalk (Build 41) (A2600 Game)

atari2600land has posted an update of his Atari 2600 homebrew game “Jack and the Beanstalk” which is based upon a fairy tale with the same name.

Release notes:

I figured it out on my own. Things still aren’t done in the giant fighting room, though. I still need to find a way to make his feet disappear once you’ve hit them six times, and other things, too.
