UFO Attack - Tomy's Revenge




First of all this is not an emulation of the real game released by Tomy Electronic in '80 for their popular handheld video games , btw this Atari VCS version is very close to original counterpart .

The game is 80% finished , wrote in assembler , should be fitted on a standard 4KB cartridge.


For those unfamiliar with the original game :

Tomy UFO Attack and Bambino Master Blaster feature two different game styles. I still own my Bambino Master Blaster--loved it to death as a kid but don't play it enough now.


BMB features alien "saucers" for enemies rather than Space Invader style critters. And rather than marching towards you Space Invaders style, the Bambino saucers fly down towards you, like a slower Mattel Battlestar Galactica Space Alert. Sometimes the saucers divide from 1 into 2, or slide off the side of the screen.


I have to say that the claim that Bambino licensed this game from Tomy has to be false. The gameplay is different (side-to-side descent vs. vertical fall) and the VFDs are quite different.


This YouTube video shows you the basics:
