Image provided by: UnknownA new mingame for the Atari 2600 called”Jetman”. This game is already a bit older (released in early May, but i somehow did not recognized it). Author notes:

I have attached the ROM (and source code) for my second Atari 2600 1K minigame to this message. The idea for this game came about while I was working on a new missile routine for Hunchy. The actual game was inspired by JetPac on the VIC 20 (and other platforms). The aim is simply to collect fuel for the rocket ship, and avoid the missiles. The controls are left/right and thrust (fire button).

I didn’t have space for a score or energy indicator, so the sky is used instead. The height of the sky indicates your energy level (you die when the sun sets), and the colour of the sky indicates the game level. There are 16 levels in total, and the sky colour changes every second level. The number of missiles, and the quantity of fuel that you need to collect increases on every level.

Anyway, let me know what you think. I’m not sure that the gameplay is quite there yet, so if you have any suggestions then I will be happy to hear them.
