Bubsy for the Atari 400/800/XL/XE


Recommended Posts



A lot of people think Bubsy started on Atari (really the SNES and then Genesis) so .... sure... why not! Here we have it folks...


BUBSY : Kitt'N Kaboodle




This fun hack of Fast Eddie was made possible by Hack-O-Matic 3 and some coloring by KevinMos3 who has already made many good color hacks for Atari 2600 games.


The Woolies are at it again stealing Bubsy's stuff and this time they stole EVERYTHING and stored it on the planet Kaboodle!!! Bubsy will need to JUMP OVER the Woolies to get it all back. In the game you'll see objects Bubsy needs to collect on based on items he collected in...


Bubsy: Claws Encounters of the Furred Kind.

Bubsy 2

Bubsy Fractured Furry Tales

Bubsy 3D

Bubsy 3D: Bubsy Visits the James Turrell Respective


And even the newest which came out recently that I'm enjoying...


Bubsy: Woolies Strike Back.


This was originally started on the Atari VCS/2600 and since the code for Fast Eddie for the 2600 and 400/800 were very similar I converted the sprites over.


First stage with all the graphical work done on the 2600 is was easy to convert over the sprites for the characters (Bubsy, Woolies), the prize sprites, and number fonts. The background code for the ladders is different so for now the ladders are the same.

oh sure let's all torture the bubster!


Hahah... yeh, been doing a lot of that lately. :)


So a new version with an updated title...



And I changed the icon for the remaining men from an exclamation point to Bubsy faces...



Apparently in this copy of Fast Eddie I used the number character to the far left has a glitch. Does anyone have another version of Fast Eddie without this glitch?


New binary attached...

Here were the original pictures just for comparison.




Also, here is one good for an end label if you ever make a cartridge for yourself. *




The disclaimer that you think we wouldn't need but here goes...

* Definitely not encouraging selling these. All this has been a fun fan project to have my favorite character on the earlier Atari systems and maybe drum up some interest in the new Bubsy game. All the above is for personal enjoyment and not for sell. However if Accolade wants to make some retro cartridges using the above and sell them here on Atariage, I'd probably buy them just to have an official retro release. :D

Same game, same cat, new hat and trimmings for the Christmas season.

But that's just a Christmas hack of a fan hack (kinda a Christmas tradition here on Atariage), the REAL holiday special is the newest (official) Bubsy game is half off on Steam, and nearly half off for the PS4 version till early January 2018.

Fairly recently I made a image for the Nuon of Bubsy for the Atari 800 on the Atari800 emulator.




The controls had Bubsy always jumping for some reason, so the game is next to unplayable. However...


To make this possible I needed a bootable disk image so the version used as actually a different version than the binary version. Attached is the disk image of Fast Eddie hacked to the Bubsy graphics.
