Robbo 5200 [work in progress]

This looks promising, but I'd suggest a gameplay video showing someone successfully playing the game.  It's really hard to tell what's going on when the robot just moves in a pattern over and over. 

 

I think you've got something special going.

I am still working :) i will post game play video and demo game image when all features will be done.

The game is my contribution to QB party 2016 - starting next week.

 

still there are few bugs in game logic routine - up-down bat doesn't move as should to move.

language picker is a piece of cake - i have now 4 language versions (polish, hungarian, english and german) maybe I put russian when i will have time for it.

 

i wanted only to show that it works :)

I fitted full 64kB XL/XE RAM code + 16kB of extra features in 32kB 5200 ROM image :P still 8kB free space left.

 

The source code will be used next for build Atari 7800 version :)

No, it is a copy party and game is an entry to game dev compo

ohh...because there's a homebrew 2600 game called "Qb" which is a better Q*bert for the VCS. I thought maybe it was a Qb for the 5200.
