First and foremost I have NOTHING to do with this but just noticed this over on AtariAge. I know some here are members there and some not so I wanted to be sure the news reached all of those who would appreciate the ROM to use in emulation or Harmony / Flashcart. 

PLEASE if you ARE a member over on AA be sure to stop by and give thanks to user Dutchman2000 😎🍻I am sure he will appreciate it,

Rom attached below or of course in the link to the original thread above, your choice to make it easy! 😜

Quick thoughts: 

  • The graphics are really nice
  • Sounds are fine.  I like the PP theme music.  Well done
  • Several screens!  And they are pretty varied in the gameplay.
  • Controls.  Well...it is a prototype I guess.  The jumping is very difficult to master.  They should have skipped the tail wag and made the button jump. 
  • Overall:  Fun!  It's so cool that this came to light after all these years.

Ah thanks Justin, sorry I honestly did not see Arenafoot's posting. DOH! Well, just shows we all want to make sure everyone is informed and aware! 

My understanding though just to update is it is NOT playable on a Harmony Cart? At least a couple people over on AA said it is a no go. Still, emulation 

is fine and cool to finally be able to experience a game most of us never would have otherwise. 🍻

Not a problem! You guys are posting great content and I'm grateful to have you guys here! 🙌 Sometimes we just need to tidy up a bit when we have duplicate threads on the same topic.

I guess I could have put it in the Atari 2600 forum instead of the homebrew forum, though its a prototype and not a homebrew. I'm just used to covering homebrews and hacks. 😉

You did great @Arenafoot! This overlap between Homebrew Forum and 2600 Form etc. has been a paradox that we've been trying to sort out for a while and make a change. When I put the site together I created the Homebrew Forum thinking this would be THE place where people go to talk about the Homebrew scene. A lot of people post to the 2600 Forum instead, (or whatever forum the system is that the homebrew is for.) I've considered making the Homebrew Forum exclusively for development, but that seems just as confusing. Your posts are fine either way, just needed to merge two great conversations into one.

Just seen this over on AA 🙄sadly my initial post suggested using the ROM in emulation OR Flash / Harmony cart but apparently it is NOT compatible with the HARMONY. 

To remedy this user Batari has provided a Harmony only version with custom back switched code added to the rom itself ( his words, I don't know what any of it means 😛 )

I have not seen anyone respond or confirm YET so take it as you will, I will give it a go when I have the time, likely not anytime soon but if you have a Harmony Cart and are

curious to try yourself the rom is attached OR see the link below for original thread should you wish to go thank batari yourself (or update if it works or not etc) 😎👍🍻
