Astronomer (Atari 2600 Game)

Astronomer is the first Atari 2600 game by Alex Pietrow. It is a simulation game of sorts that allows the player to get into the shoes of an astronomer and observe stars with the world’s largest telescope. The aim of the game is to aim the telescope beam at a star and observe it troughout the night. This is achieved by filling up an ‘observing bar’. However if the astronomer takes pictures of clouds while observing a star, the entire observation will be ruined and the astronomer will have to start over. This can make his or her life difficult as there is only a certain amount of time alocated to this one observer. Once this time is up, the game is over. Just like in real life, the observer who can do the most with their time will be considered the best, but this always will partially rest on luck. Can you get the high score?

After getting the map code working, I rewrote the code to load the attributes into the memory buffer. This involved updating the asset tool to properly remap the metatiles to properly allow for attribute value lookup. In the end, we’re still running with too many cycles in NMI, but we’ll get that fixed on Thursday. Thanks for watching!

Broken, fixed, and better. The map loading code was changed so that the asset tool can dump the entire map directly in to the file and then we seek into it and decrement our index vs our prior approach where it had the first screen at the beginning and then subsequent rows following. That went pretty quick and then we talked about what we would do for the next stream to get palettes and attributes working again with this new format, furthering our goal of finally getting to tile collision. Thanks for watching! See you on Monday
