A look at Venture for Atari 7800 - Work in Progress


Recommended Posts

Here are some work in progress screen shots for Venture on the Atari 7800 I have the first 3 map screens put together. I am planning to make this more like the arcade verses the 2600, Coleco, Intellivision, or even my 8-bit/5200 version. It may have several modes, default being arcade, other modes being home console, 8-bit challenger mode, and 7800 challenger mode. The issue I had with the 8-bit version was I could only dedicate 6 sprites for the enemies inside of each room. 7800 that can be extended to 8 or 10 maybe, or have something else like flames or energy bolts bouncing between walls. Many ideals are being considered.

That looks awesome!  Will this version have the animation as you enter the rooms and exit?  That is missing from all home versions, as far as I know. Is that doable on the 7800?

We are looking at doing something different than the home versions. we will see what we can do with the 7800.

Here is my work in progress so far for Venture. Right now I am figuring out how to make one of my games work with the 7800 and use it as a template for the rest of the games that I am looking to port over later. Also get one game out on cartridge to see how it sells before deciding on more games. The other games on the list include Delta Space Arena, Laser Blast X, Tile Smashers, Putt 18 Miniature Golf, Animal Keeper, and Secretum Labyrinth.
