Now at only about 500 bytes left. I wonder if I can fit the elf in...

Usually I go to Atariage to check if there´s someone talking bad about your beloved Odyssey Smiley

Well, I founded some interesting things theres, one is a game called Castle of Doom  Wink, it seems a good thing to work in an Odyssey. Other, since I´m Mortal Kombat fan since the first arcade came, I founded a MK themed game. I just decided to check it, play other games is every a good exercicie for ideas. But what I founded more interesting on this is the 8th post on it:
http://atariage.com/forums/topic/216430-mortal-kombat-netherrealm-journey-platformer/
I love Select Game screen since it was the first thing I saw when I received my Ody, I think it´s also the first openning screen in VG history, and later inspired Intellivision and mainly Colecoviosion, just my thoughs. In other side, nothing against Oppening screen, but my sugestion is if you have to choose between an opening screen and a enemy or a X-mas song, choose the second option..

I'm back working on this and need help.
Suppose I want the value #00dh (sprite 3's x position) to be the same as #011h (character 1's x position). How would I do this? I've tried and can't do it.

Make sure the VDC is off (call 011ch if it isn't off yet), then:
mov r0,#011h
movx a,@r0
mov r0,#00dh
movx @r0,a

If you've written something to The Voice or ExtRam before, first select the VDC with call 00e7h.

I worked on this stupid thing for like, I don't know, at least 12 or so hours during the past few days. And FINALLY I think I got everything right (for now.) I got the elf in. He's just a stick figure for now, so if anyone wants to design a 1 color elf for me, please do so. Things I have to do later are:
- make it so the elf doesn't move to the row you're currently on.
- add collision detection for the elf.
But I've used up 1,932 bytes, so I don't know if I can cram the rest of the code in 2,048. But for now, I'm basking in the glory that I'm finished working on this for now because I'm burned out.

I'm going to call the game "Nice Ice." It is a lot better than "Reindeer."  Smiley

In my opinion, I still think you should call the game REINDEER! 
After all, that is the goal here, right? You're trying to save that stranded reindeer on the other side of the ice.


Also I don't want to see you to get burned out by programming this game and working on it all hours on end and driving yourself crazy .

I suggest to plan for holiday / Christmas season release - in like early December 2014. That's a year away. Gives yourself plenty of time
so you can relax and the pressure is off.

What program do you use to create / draw the elf? I may give it a try... is there a sprite editor / creator program you use?

As for sprite editors, I just use the eraser (squares) in good old MS Paint.
Now you made me unsure if I want to change the name. If I do, this is what it would look like. I changed the title screen colors to match an ice theme and fixed the bug where you could go up once you get on the reindeer. I think the ice describes what the center of the screen is all about. I don't know, I just thought Reindeer was too bland of a name.
Yeah, I got too wound up and drove myself crazy over this game, mostly because I thought it would be easy to do, but it turned out that wasn't the case. I'll take a break from it now and begin work again after the holidays are over.

There's a homebrew Atari 2600 game called "Reindeer Rescue". http://atariage.com/software_page.html?SoftwareLabelID=2757

I'm not into other consoles so good that you are, but a good game name doesn't have to take very long,
just apply the spirit of the 80's... Smiley

I think Nice Ice is nice Smiley
Really sounds like a name of a game.
All in all, the reindeer is just a supporting char on the game. New colors looks better, too.
