+atari2600land Posted January 2, 2008 Share Posted January 2, 2008 Since GoSub 2 won't be made for a while (it uses the Superchip.), I need something to work on. So, I decided on either a game based on "Beneath the Planet of the Apes", or "Jack and the Beanstalk". The former would probably run into copyright issues with 20th Century Fox (remember the Futurama hack), while the latter doesn't have any copyright issues. So here's my idea, which would probably play like the Planet of the Apes prototype: Level 1 - the village We start the story off where Jack just traded his cow or whatever for some magic beans. 5 or so. Now, Jack has to make his way back to his house without running into ninjas who want to steal his magic beans. If a ninja touches you, you lose a bean. In this level, if you lose all five beans, the game ends. Level 2 - up the beanstalk This would play more like level 1-1 of SMB2, the part with the vines (if you don't take the shortcut). Jack climbs his way up the beanstalk avoiding deadly birds and such. From levels 2-4, the beans will be replaced with lives. Level 3 - the giant's castle Jack must avoid the castle guards whilst navigating the huge castle and find the magic harp and the goose that lays the golden eggs. Level 4 - Down the beanstalk Jack climbs down the beanstalk avoiding the same deadly birds and stuff, and brings the goose and harp and Jack and his mother live happily ever after. Does this sound like a good idea for a 2600 game? Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
