Atari 2600 homebrew author Bob Montgomery, whose previous 2600 creations include Go Fish!
and Reindeer Rescue
has created his third 2600 homebrew game--Elevators Amiss!
In Elevators Amiss
you are a maid working in a hotel gone crazy! Normally the night shift is pretty uneventful, but tonight the hotel's elevators have taken on a life of their own! You need to get to the top of the hotel, but the elevators are simply not an option. To get to the top floor you will need to race along each floor of the building to the stairs while avoiding the out-of-control elevators! And when you do reach the top, you're work isn't done as you need to tackle the next hotel, also suffering the same problem!
Darkness. Your head aches. Where are you? What happened to you? Then you remember the steady beep of a technical device. You start groping for the source of the tone and find a PDA laying near your legs. You grab it and watch its display.
You stare at the screen and can't tell what the numbers stand for. You stand up and move a step to the right and come to know that the small dot on the screen represents your position. You continue walking, but a wall abruptly stops your movement. You are in a giant maze and the PDA screen shows the map of this big dark surrounding!
While examining the electronic device in your hands you find a button and a small stick. Your curiosity and raising panic results in pushing the button instantly. You are still standing in complete darkness, but the screen shows something like a spotlight. It seems to be produced by a radar spot scanning the caves. Moving the small stick while the button is pressed moves the spotlight around the maze on screen. You spot ways and walls on screen and decide to follow the lanes and hope to find an exit somewhere... unfortunately you come to know that the numbers in the top right corner of the screen are counting down and you feel that it can't be any good if this timer reaches zero.
You are a submarine driver in search of sunken treasure off the coast of Cape Chammawingiwakauguflidplitargoknotz. Your job: Get the treasure chests and be rich! But there are dangers: it seems the treasures are well protected because there's walls. Don't hit the walls!
GoSub is a new Atari 2600 homebrew game by Chris Read. You pilot a submarine and must navigate a perilous maze to reach the exit. Touching the walls will destroy your submarine, so you must pilot your craft with great skill! And as if the narrow passages were not enough danger, in the maze lurks a monser octopus determined to crush your sub with its mighty grip! Can you escape with your life and your wits?
GoSub also features a GoSub 500
game that pits two players in a counter-clockwise submarine race!
