Outsatnding game ! Can you port this for Atari 8 bits ? I hope so.

Thanks! I don't know much about the workings of the Atari 8-bit family so I can't port it myself at the moment.  Same processor though so it would be fairly straightforward.  The hard bit would be improving it to make use of the extra features the Atari hardware has.  Maybe one day.

Andrew, congrats ! It´s a really nice game. A video of your game in your honor.

Thanks! And thanks for making the video.  Good to hear you had a bit of fun from the game.

Very nice Shmup ! Thank you ^^ !

Thanks!  And thanks for playing it.

Thank you

Thanks for playing the game! :-)

The more people developing for the wonderful Vic 20 the better. Great game, mate. Well done.

What dev system did you use to program it? 

Thanks! I used CBM prg Studio for development. Very nice to use.

CBM Prg studio is great for development at assembler level for Commodore machines. If you ever want to try doing it in a bit more user-friendly language then perhaps have a look at TRSE. It's fantastic for working on Vic or C64 games :)


Looks interesing. Now I wish I had kept my old Turbo Pascal books!

cool game!

Thank you!

Awesome! Top game. More and More and More.  



Thanks.  Great video, you play it very well!
