bluswimmer Posted June 26, 2020 Share Posted June 26, 2020 (edited) Over the past couple of days I got bored and made one of those stacking games for the Atari 2600. If you've ever seen a stacker arcade machine, you probably already know how this works. Essentially, all you need to do is time your button presses to stack the "blocks" as high as possible. The block platform gradually shrinks if you don't time your button presses perfectly, so accuracy is key. When making this I made a conscious effort to stay below one kilobyte. As of now, there are 45 unused bytes of ROM, and 58 bytes of unused RAM (including the call stack). I don't think this game is particularly interesting or original (it wouldn't surprise me if someone already made a 2600 version of this kind of game), but I hope you find it amusing regardless. As per usual, download is below, and you can watch gameplay footage here. stackgame.bin stackgame.zip Edited June 28, 2020 by bluswimmer 13 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
