RevEng Posted February 8 Share Posted February 8 I'm starting a new thread for this game, so I can update this first post with any roms, news, etc. For posterity, the original thread can be found here. The Demo Release__ Speaking of roms and news, the team and I are pleased to present the demo release of Attack of the PETSCI Robots. The demo release has 2 levels from the game (the full rom has 15) and you have to sit through a brief nag screen when you start the rom. Otherwise the demo is identical to the retail release. There are two flavours of demo zip here. Both zips include a demo-specific instruction manual, which you're encouraged to look over. The first zip is for Windows and has the a7800 emulator preconfigured, where you can launch the game by just double-clicking the included batch file. Attack of the PETSCII Robots Atari 7800 Demo.zip The second zip is for use with any emulator or flash cart that supports Bankset Bankswitching Roms, which at this time is a7800 emulator (PC: Windows, MacOS, Linux), a7800ds emulator (Nintendo DS), the MiSTer 7800 core (FPGA), Argon emulator (Android, Amazon, Chromebook, Pi), 7800GD (flash cart), and DragonFly (flash cart). Attack of the PETSCII Robots Demo Rom & Manual.zip Bear in mind that only one emulator (a7800ds) emulates the SNES2Atari adapter, so the other emulators will default to the single proline scheme. The retail release comes with the snes2atari adapter, and using snes2atari is the recommended way to experience the game. Enjoy! Attack of the PETSCII Robots Cartridge Release__ Attack of the PETSCII Robots for the Atari 7800 is now available in the AtariAge Store! https://atariage.com/store/index.php?l=product_detail&p=1282 Homebrew Award Nomination__ Attack of the PETSCII Robots 7800 has been nominated for the best homebrew conversion at the 5th Annual Atari Homebrew Awards Check out all the great entries (for Atari 2600, 7800, 8-Bit/5200, Lynx and Jaguar) and vote at the AtariAge forums: https://forums.atariage.com/forum/203-atari-homebrew-awards/ Once again thank you to David Murray for creating the original game and @NoelleAmelie for creating the fantastic pokey soundtrack for this conversion, and the many contributors that helped make this game a reality. Game Video__ @Trebor has put together a commentary-free play through of a few of the maps. It introduces the gameplay mechanics, but avoids too many spoilers... @ZeroPage Homebrew played the game on the ZPH livestream. If you like homebrew and cats, it's well worth checking out. @-^CrossBow^- has also played the game on his livestream a couple times in the past. Be advised he's an advanced player, having completed PETSCII Robots on a number of platforms, so you may see some spoilers. 18 4 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
