Coming along nicely! I am happy to report that 2600 Connection will be publishing this game on cartridge in 2015.

Great work, Chris. I am enjoying it and it reminds me of days long ago of having fun playing Pressure Cooker (by Activision) -- when I first got that cart many, many years ago.

Thanks. Here is a screenshot in case you aren't able to use an emulator right now.

This took several hours. The dumb computer was not cooperating with me. But I've added in the score and high score. So with all the things in place, unless there are any bugs, is make improvements. One thing I want to do is make the game go faster with time. But it's really hot in my room for some reason and I must leave it for a bit and cool down. Here is a bin and a pic.

Now I'm having problems. I put in some sounds, and now whenever the game ends and you press action, the tens digit in the high score (the pink group) becomes a 4. WHY?!??!?!?!??!?!  Cry

OK, I fixed it. New version, too. It took a while to find the perfect spot for both scores and the chart so they wouldn't run into each other and cause ickiness. If something doesn't fit on screen, let me know. I just checked with the Homer emulator and it doesn't show the chart, but it shows up on real hardware and o2em.

New version.
What's changed:
I moved the scores down at the bottom and moved the chart up to the near top. Chart now actual chart made with grids so it is more easily seen what is missing. I tested this on a real Odyssey 2. Still, let me know if you run into any problems.

I love the new design! Much easier to see what items you need. I like the current and high scores at the bottom, too. I noticed that the speed of the items dropping changed once on level 3. Can you change it so the speed increase is not so dramatic... maybe just a little faster on a gradual increase?
