I am "porting" my never-released-but-just-finished-work-on Atari 2600 game "I Hate Vegetables" to the Odyssey 2. I think I don't need this to be 4k. Basically what you do is celery falls from the sky and once it lands on the ground it moves off screen. The way the celery slants is a clue to which direction it will go. The guy cannot jump, so what he needs to do is avoid the celery. Once he goes off the screen, he reappears at the other side, while the celery doesn't. I went mad trying to do just this because garbage characters filled the left or right hand side of the screen. What I needed to do to fix it (if I was a better programmer, I would have saved lots of space than I did), was make individual celery 1, 2 and 3 x AND y positions, then move the celery Y position off screen once it goes off screen to avoid garbage on either side of the screen. But anyway, the point of the game is to get points by getting cookies, which always fall and stay at the center of the screen. Cookies aren't implemented yet, and neither is death. I am quitting for today, though, because I don't like being angry.

There´s a king of cheating on this game. Player just need to wait at the ends and in accordance with the vegetables that fall he only needs to change the side. I do not know if I was clear?

I know. I am going to introduce a cookie at random that falls and stays at the center of the screen. This should get the player at the center of the screen.

Added cookie. Cookie stays at the center of the screen, which should lure the player into a more dangerous position.
