Laser Blast X cartridge new game for Atari 8-bit now available $39.95 from Video 61

Recommended Posts


Laser Blast is now available for sale for the Atari 8-bit computer. This is a port of the Activision 2600 game. Requires 16K of RAM so it will run on any stock Atari 8-bit computer.


I did my own version from scratch and Instead of just doing an exact port of a 2600 game, I wanted something that will take advantage of the Atari 8-bit features like having 4 independent player sprites on a line and higher multicolored resolution for the ground, mountains, and star back ground. This does a parallax effect with back ground and foreground scrolling at different rates giving a nice 3D effect when scrolling between each level. Several variants you will be able to play include 3, 4, or 6 tanks on the ground, alien fighter crafts are also flying above the tanks, and enemies can either shoot lasers or "little bolts" up at your ship.



The release date is Monday, November 28, 2016 that is CyberMonday in the United States.


The game is available here.
