    Looks good!

    When you think you are a tough avenger, switch the difficulty to A, and then try Ultimate Yars!

    I hate to say this, but a close friend of mine knows the guy doing this. He scammed my friend and a bunch of other folks out of a lot of money on various business ventures. The guy is shady, don't hold your breath for this. I hope it comes out and I'd love to see 2600 Star Castle, but I'm not giving him a penny.
    If you can't do it with 8 bits, you don't need to do it.

    Damnit Well I still wish the project the very best... I know I want a copy but I will hold my cash for now. Thanks for the heads up.

    At least the game program itself is finished, and has been for some time (or so the guy claims—hard to tell, because he’s been treating it as though Atari 2600 Star Castle is a matter of national security). I think the money would just be used to cover the fancy cartridge, packaging, etc.

    There is a long thread on this over at AtariAge, and frankly, whenever the programmer posts a message I get a douche chill and have to reach for my jacket.

    In what could only be called a masterstroke of self-aggrandizing dumbfuckery, he originally claimed that the only way he’d part with the game would be if somebody paid him $32,000. Predictably, this nonsense was largely met with the ire of the AtariAge community, which is accustomed to a more open “for the love of the game” ethos when it comes to homebrewing on archaic platforms.

    Things got interesting when a more populist homebrewer stepped up to make a version of the game and share it with everybody—the “people’s Star Castle” if you will. As soon as that project gained traction, the tallywacker that programmed the $32k version changed his tune and did the kickstart thing. What a coincidence!

    I’m with Bydo on this one, that guy ain’t getting a red cent from me.

    Sound like the Marble man story but with a happier ending
