Peter Finzel's games AFAIK were written in that language, at least he IIRC said so in the description to the eBay auction where he sold his 800 and the sources to these games.

 

Dave Oblad's "Labyrinth"

Hello Thorsten,

 

according to someone supposedly having won that eBay auction and owning the sources now, the games are not in ACTION! My guess thay are in Assembly language (ATMAS II).

Kennedy Approach is, to my knowledge, also written in Action!. The speech synthesis is, of course, not. But that is third-party code.

 

The C-64 version was the original, so wouldn't it be unusual for the Atari 8-bit port to be written in that type of computer-specific language?

It would, unless the C64 version was also written in Action! I have heard that there had been at least some C64 software written using Action! Action! compiles to straight 6502 machine code, so if one were to write their own custom routines that are tailored to the specifics of the C64 hardware architecture, it should work just fine.

Not as many as it should be considering the capabilities of the language :)

 

Here's my chance to toss another coin in the bucket. ACTris! is written in Action! by me.

I also released the source codes for an earlier CTetris version here at AtariAge a long while ago.

That would be a reasonable theory, but then I would assume the C-64 author would have just handled the Atari port himself in that case, which he didn't.
