In the not so distant future aliens attack a game development studio and now there’s a war between the Game Devs and the Aliens. The gun fighting leaves the two sides in a constant stalemate. You play as Baby, the studio’s dog, and you have the only ability that gives the humans the edge: Baby’s cuteness. These aliens are completely averse to extreme levels of cuteness.

Added a shield feature, activated by pulling down. Lasts one second, then you must wait 4 seconds. to use it again. Since I am waiting to have carts made while folks help me test it on real hardware , I might as well add more stuff….. Maybe difficulty options…

Alien Attack v2018.02.15 (A2600 Game)

Alien Attack is a homebrew Atari VCS game by easmith. It’s a 4k tiny shooter game, fully written in Assembler.

Release notes:

Ok, I got a little feedback on the “prototype” so I went ahead and made some changes. I think now it can truly be considered a finished game.

1. Made 16 unique enemy designs/ 16 waves.
2. Enemy speed is now controlled with fractional pixel movement , for more variations in speed and less abrupt change from slow to really fast, thanks to help from SpiceWare for this.
3. Figured out how to enlarge Enemy missile without flicker.
4. Fixed bug where death sound would play indefinitely
5. Reduces delay before button reset kicks in.
6. Added win screen after wave 16.

Again, the idea is to take out the 16 waves before the enemies take out your laser cannon or power supply , or outlast your power supply. Now I think it is good enough to be considered a pretty solid first effort, at least technically , for just 4 weeks of work. ROM is actually 3K.

Killer Heads of Lettuce v2018.02.06 (WIP) (A2600 Game)

Chris Read aka atari2600land works on a second game for the Channel F called Killer Heads of Lettuce. It’s sort of like a cross between Asteroids and Space Jockey. In the game, you shoot heads of lettuce in your spaceship.

Further notes:

You can move the spaceship up and down, and I made a variable for lettuce speed and it seems to be working okay now. It’s set to 1, but if I set it to 2, it goes faster. The object of the game is to keep the lettuce from reaching the far right of the screen. I’m still working on this game. You can shoot with the fire button, but the missiles can’t shoot the lettuce because I haven’t gotten that far yet. So, what do you think?
