I have been kind of lurker around here for the last 4 or so months.

I have been working on a untitled game the I have been referring to with
my friends as, 'Digital Destruction'. Basically it is a vertically
scroller in the vein of 'River Raid' with the main game play revolving
around destroying everything in your path.

I should have something for people to look at in a couple of weeks. This
is my first 2600 project, so I have had to get over the learning curve,
which in my case has taken months. :-)

It is very exciting to see all the projects in the works. I am most
excited about Radial Pong. I had considered a similar project when doing
some GBA homebrew programming.

Hi there!

It's been a long time, since I did that last time.

But right now a certain curiosity hit me :-)


There' a few active projects here right now, that get 
regular updates, but there's a bunch of others I'd just 
like to know their current status:

Here's a selection of dead(?) projects grabbed from 
Atari Age:

A-VCS-tec Challenge
Laseresal 2002
Poker Squares
Radial Pong
Rainbow Invaders
The Ravenous Dead

Or am I wrong on any?

Then there was these cool demos called "plane" posted to 
the list from Gonzalo Fernández a while ago. Any 
progress here?


As said in the title, I'd like to know what else is 
cooking, please report!

I'll volunteer to start:

My next project after Star Fire will be a port of "Sword 
of Fargoal". I already started porting it to 5200BAS, 
but the final target will certainly be the 2600. I'm 
planing on using both a keypad and a joystick controler 
combined for it and I hope to get all features of the 
original transfered. While technically not setting new 
standarts, I didn't want to do the third kill-o-zap game 
in series and I hope to be able to achieve a never 
before seen depth of gameplay for 2600 adventure/rpg 

Now tell me yours! :-)
