So it is August 2018 and deadline of ABBUC SWC has passed.

This year it was about creating new game (I still have some shelved projects, but it is hard to force myself to finish them) … originally I thought I will create something quick and simple within a day (logical game), but then I decided to go for jump&run … or better jump&jump style.

Citron 3kg

Atari, My games No Comments »

Hey fellow Atarians!

Citron 3kg took 6th place at Abbuc Software Contest 2017.

I created this game in several hours. It was again result of quick coding challenge similar to 3plex or Xirius Defect. This game is 100% NTSC compatible and it does not require any HW extension to stock Atari 800 XL/XE machine.

  • Use your highly modified vehicle to gather as many citrons as possible
  • Press Fire to jump over mines if you wanna live
  • Also do not get knocked down by nasty attacking flying saucer
  • Stay alive as long as possible
  • Once the countdown reaches zero, new level begins….

Blast from the past – Soko Maniac

Atari, My games 6 Comments »

Long time ago I dreamt about creating an Atari game. It is quite funny to go back in time in my mind and remember all those old days. I started coding on Atari quite long time ago, firstly in Basic and TurboBasic. I still  have Atari 800 XL that belonged to my older brother back in the 80’s. He showed me the way to write programs before I even got in touch with English language. It was quite surprising back then (in 2nd grade of elementary school where I attended one of my first English classes) to discover that those Basic commands are not just random code names with specific behavior, but they have actual literal meaning in English. Soko Maniac is game based on Sokoban game that already existed on PCs (CGA mode).

Announcement – Skyscraper

Atari, My games No Comments »

It’s been a while since my last post. I have an announcement to make: Skyscraper is almost finished and I plan to submit it to upcoming Abbuc SW Contest 2016.

There were two Work-In-Progress videos released near the end of last year. I granted myself quite big pause in the development. Then spent couple hours adding title screen during spring (as far as I remember) and last two days were quite productive since I sat behind my PC and finished gameplay.

I managed to finish another game recently. This time it is Quarrion, which was previewed on last new years disc 2015. I started coding this game year ago. Final gameplay was done for some time, but I needed to fix some bugs add graphics, music and wrap it all up. Finishing the project is always hard, because it sucks so much time when you focus on small details and try to make them look the best possible way.

3plex coding timelapse – Abbuc SW Contest 2015

Atari, My games 4 Comments »

Tento post je len v angličtine, nechce sa mi to prekladať…

How to code Atari XL/XE game in 500 minutes? -not just another stupid marketing! This time I have proof… the timelapse video! This year’s Abbuc SW contest is a bit special, because deadline for compo entries was 31st of July instead of 31st of August as usual, but I handled it somehow similarly as before… I started working on my entry day before deadline.

Xirius Defect XXL – x1 (english)

Atari, My games No Comments »

Táák, táto gameska je výsledkom takmer polročnej práce. Niekedy v novembri som sa na popud Jasona Kendalla rozhodol značne rozšíriť hru Xirius Defect o množstvo levelov a nových herných elementov. Read the rest of this entry »

Soft Oldies (english)

PC Games No Comments »

Tento článok som začal písať pred neuveriteľnými tromi rokmi, konečne som ho dokončil a skolektoval všetok potrebný materiál…

Trošku som sa prehrabával netom a zistil som, že moja stará web stránka je zrušená a s ňou zmizli aj moje staré PCčkové gamesy z povrchu internetového. Posledný update na tej stránke som spravil možno niekedy v roku 2002 a na moje počudovanie som medzi rôznymi backupmi, ktoré sa váľajú na mojom disku, nenašiel žiadny backup starej stránky. Keď už nič, aspoň sem nahádžem moje staré zveriny, veď keď som to predsa nakódil, nech sa to nestratí. Read the rest of this entry »

Playing with AssembloidsXE

Atari, Other 4 Comments »

After Abbuc 2013 games were released, new post about highscore was created at AtariAge HighScoreClub (HSC). Several Atarians posted their score with screenshots, but MaPa posted quite high score from AssebloidsXE. When most of players could not get 5000 points, MaPa got more than 38000. That is pretty sick score, so I decided to break this record.
