I’ve begin working on this again, although this is kind of a hectic time with me moving to a new house & all. Added two screens.

Vong stands for “Vertical Pong” and is a Pong game for Atari 2600.

Release notes:

In this new version, the background colors change every 2 seconds until you press reset to start a game. You can see that before you start a game, there is a blank space where the cpu score goes and a 1 where your score goes, That is the game variation number. Variation 2, which in not in this version will be 2 player.

Terrance and Phillip (Build 32) (A2600 Game)

Do you remember the two farting guys “Terrance & Phillip” from South Park? Now those two guys have their very own computergame on the Atari 2600 platform.

Release notes from atari2600land:

Got rid of the in-game music. I figured nobody was liking it anyway, and it was taking up variables which I needed. Changed screen #35 and added screen #37. I also changed the way you jump. Now when you let go of the fire button mid-jump, you go back down instead of doing the whole jump.

Space Run (Demo) (A2600 Game)

Atarius Maximus has been working on a new game called Space Run.

Quote:

I was experimenting with a 3D type space shooter with this one, but haven’t gotten very far with it. It’s nowhere near a complete game. The playfield scrolls back to give the illusion that you’re travelling down the tunnel. The obstacles scroll up the tunnel from the middle (and get larger as they approach), you then have to fly around and avoid them. If you run into one, the screen will flash red. I actually did this quite some time ago and got stuck, I just wasn’t sure where to go with the game. Anybody see any potential in this, or have any suggestions?
