Sometimes I take stuff from other stuff I've done, like comic books and home movies, and turn them into video games. Such is the case with this one. Even Number Man is a game I've just begun work on. Even Number Man will be a lot like Defender, but in a setting akin to Superman for the Atari 2600. Even Number Man is going to go around and shoot odd numbers that are trying to take over the city. It's been a while since I programmed for the Odyssey 2, so I thought I'd take a stab at converting an old game I started work on and converting it to Even Number Man. All I have done so far is the title screen. I haven't designed the sprite(s?) for Even Number Man himself yet. But what I do have works great.

Even Number Man can now move left and right, but that's all I have done right now. Press ACTION to start the game.

Interesting idea. Are you considering zero an even number? How about infinity?

0 is neither odd nor even. Same with infinity. Both will not appear in the game.

Even Number Man can jump. Press Up to jump. I made it this way so that the Action button fires a laser (which is not in the game yet.)
