American Gladiator (A2600 Game)

Release notes:

American Gladiator by Lauren Walker, David Wilson, Takuya Yoshikane

Our game is based on the competition TV show American Gladiators. More specifically, we loosely represented the popular event Assault. The arena is based on the set from the early years of the show, with the grey floor and prominent blue obstacles. Player two is based on the gladiator known as “Malibu,” and is outfitted in red while player one is outfitted in yellow, and represents the contender. Player two defends the flag with a cannon as player one attempts to steal it and return it to his base.

Alien vs Predator (A2600 Game)

Waging a battle of epic proportions, Alien and Predator face off in an underground chamber. Armed with extreme sped and agility, the Alien is a strong match for Predator, whose advanced technology provides him with homing missiles directed by his own movement. The first player to kill his opponent 10 times, scoring him 100 points, by either attacking (Alien) or shooting (Predator) wins the game.

Alien Greed II (19-01-2008) (A2600 Game)

You must race around the screen and collect the Atari Cartridges that appear before they are beamed away by rival Alien Collectors. As you race around the screen you must avoid obstacles and the roving Bee. The Bee won’t kill you but it may slow you down.

After collecting ten cartridges you will travel in your spaceship to the next level. Your ship is still damaged so you will have to take the long way. Keep on the lookout for an EXTREMELY RARE Cartridge. They are worth more then the normal carts.

There are rumours of a horribly mutated collector by the name of Atari Charles. It is unknown whether the mutation was caused by being Canadian or if it is the result of a radioactive E.T. Prototype that he dug up in the desert . Regardless, If you see him then grab the cartridge!

Titan Diamonds v1.0 (A2600 Game)

Fort Apocalypse is a pretty fast guy, if it comes to updates. Titan Diamonds v1.0 is here.

Story: In the year 2574 a lot of things have changed. Humans have colonized our solar system and the O81b “flying saucer”is the primary means of getting around town. However, some things don’t change, specifically the need for diamonds. In 2574, the largest known diamond in the solar system was found in the moon, Titan. But in the process of trying to mine it, the 2 petaton atomic bomb used was overkill and scattered diamonds across the planet and across the solar system. You are one of the many that have equipped their O81b’s with rock blasters and set off to mine for the diamonds. But watch out, the explosion also caused a lot of meteorites! Good luck diamond hunter, and get rich!

Release notes:

fixed things like diamond drop, added heavier gravity to level 2 and 3
