saxmeister Posted January 24, 2022 Share Posted January 24, 2022 (edited) I finally was able to complete coding a (very simple) game on the 7800 as a way of learning the ins-and-outs of the system and 7800BASIC. The game is an extremely simple card game and it's based on an old Commodore 64 type-in game from COMPUTE!'s Gazette way back in the day! This is not impressive in any way, but it was a way of learning things the console way. My main goals were: developing game logic learning the ins-and-outs of graphics on the 7800 learning how to produce better random numbers in 7800BASIC Working in 320A mode more As a noob in game development (except for programming VIC-20 games back in the day) this is my first step. I've worked out how to create graphics and display them, but nothing advanced yet. I'm looking forward to the journey. Thanks to all who have been there-done that and have been decent enough to share their thoughts and experiences with us. Hoping to contribute something to the community. As per @gambler172 I have added links to the binaries. They are rough and they don't actually prompt you to press fire yet and it's almost hard to tell anything has happened. I'll fix that in a later iteration. Don't miss out! Play the game that atari7800forever.com said was "...a game with great graphics that you knew you never needed." (Gee, thanks! It's my first program on the 7800! Ha ha ha!)
