+Muddyfunster Posted November 13, 2021 Share Posted November 13, 2021 2048 - Atari 7800 Edition This is my take on a 2048 number tile game for the 7800. I started this as a bit of a side-project / experiment as I'd never really tried anything like a puzzle game before. It took shape quite quickly and with a bit of polishing turned into a playable game. There is no sound or music, I wanted the game to be quite minimalistic in approach (to be honest, sfx playing each time you make a move would probably drive most people crazy). Unless some bugs are found and need fixing, I'd call this done. 2048 is Couch Compliant! Enjoy! Objective & Playing Make a 2048 tile! The game is played on a 4 x 4 board and the player starts with two number 2 tiles. Each turn where the player makes a valid move, another number 2 tile is added to the game board (a valid move is moving the tiles, or combining tiles). If you try to move in such a way that no move is completed, a turn is not registered and no new number "2" is added to the board. You make new tiles by combining the tiles already on the board. Combine 2 and 2 to make a 4, combine 4 and 4 to make an 8 and so on, combine a 1024 and 1024 to make a 2048. Game over occurs when the board is full and you no longer have a valid move available (ie no way to move or combine tiles). It sounds way more complex that it is. Controls Up, Down, Left & Right will move all of the tiles on the board in the direction you select. example Scoring Score points by smashing tiles together. Score = the sum of the tiles you smash together - create an 8 tile - you score 8, create a 32 tile, you score 32 and so on. Greedy moves are not allowed (no mega-combines - A tile can only combine once per turn). Release Candidate ROM The RC2 rom supports NTSC and PAL as well as AV/Save key for hiscores. The RC2 rom should work fine on Dragonfly, Concerto and most emulators. BUP might get upset with the hiscore code, I'll add a "BUP Friendly" version over the weekend. Thanks @Trebor @ZeroPage Homebrew @sramirez2008 for doing a bit of testing and for valuable feedback! 2048_RC1a.a78 13 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
