Revival Studios has just released its first game for the Videopac and Odyssey 2 game systems, called: AstroDodge.

In this game you are controlling a nice multicolored spaceship, having to dodge the hordes of asteroids coming towards you.
The game is playable on all Videopac, Videopac+ and Magnavox Odyssey2 systems, but also includes additional support for high resolution backgrounds on Videopac+ systems, and digitized speech through the voice module.

More than that, players could also submit their highscores and achievements online through the use of a code, something has not been seen in any videopac/Odyssey2 game before.

Check out the trailer here:  
YouTube: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hWOKFMLnlek

Game features:
- Playable on Videopac and Odyssey2 consoles
- High resolution background on Videopac+ consoles
- Digitized speech using The voice add-on
- Animated multicolor sprites
- Internet highscore uploading
- Online rewards system
- Hidden gameplay mode

The game is now available on cartridge. Price is 39 euros.
You can now order your copy by PM'ing me or mailing to sales@revival-studios.com

And it was displayed in full RGB on the modded G7400   Tongue
  
BTW that G7400 is 'signed' by me at the bottom so it will be a collectable in the future  Cheesy  

I have been playing Astrododge on my LCD G7400 and it is indeed very nice.

Also scored an Odyssey2 with Voice and a Vectrex at Apeldoorn
Too bad the TI99 I bought had a bad keyboard but the seller took it back without problems.
All in all a good day.

I hooked up the Voice module to a standard G7000 and tried Astrododge on that combo:

After reset the voice module is quiet until the Revivalstudios logo appears and then it emits some noise and a continous 'Vectrex like buzz' until I press the Fire button after that it nicely says 'Action' until I get hit and it says 'Game Over'
Is this correct ? (I seem to recall it said 'RevivalStudios' at the demo in Steenwijk)

I have not tried it on the Odyssey2 as the power adapter that was included does not belong to the Odyssey2.

Here is a photo of the final manual, cartridge and index-card.


A higher resolution version of this photo is available at the astrododge page on the astrododge for videopac and odyssey 2 game page

Please note that while i do try to ship the game in a box/case, that these boxes are not part of the package, but for shipment purposes only, and therefore will greatly vary in condition.

If you are planning on ordering, but really want/need a crackless box because you don't have any spares (i can imagine some US folks not having loads of spares), please PM me and i will supply one free of charge.

I took the G7000 to commanderf's house today and a friend of us got hold of the joystick and played the high-score to smithereens.. Check out the score at http://www.revival-studios.com/highscores/?consoleid=4&gameid=1

I've received my copy of ASTRODODGE today !

However a few "improvements" have been made since Steenwijk: THE SHIP NOW HAS GRAVITY TO LEFT & RIGHT !!!!
It's a pity for playing !!!  Evil  Evil
For me the game looses 50% of its interest !  Shocked
I'm really disappointed !!   Cry

What do you think about this?  Huh?

The gravity was added by request from the beta-testers and i feel it is really an improvement for the game. Maybe it is a bit more difficult for those that played the game without it, but just keep playing, you'll get used to it in no time.
To each its own ofcourse, but the game has gained more depth by adding this feature, as you can now do 'last second saves' by quickly moving from one side of the screen to the other side.
