I made a title screen for a new Odyssey 2 game called Xybort. Xybort will be a 4k game. You can download the game and follow its progress on the official Xybort site. http://www.atari2600land.com/odyssey2/xybort.html Xybort will be a shooter in the vein of Xevious (hence the name.)

I'll be looking forward to what you can do in the Xevious vein.

I've been working on this the past few days. I put in custom sfx. I made an enemy ship. You can shoot at it.
When I work on this the next time (probably tomorrow), I will make the ship move randomly.

I downloaded it today, but everything I used to try and unzip it reported it as corrupted. Downloaded it twice, and tried multiple tools. I'll keep my eyes open for the next one.

Thanks again!

Xybort now has trees and a grassy plain where they are. Don't crash into the trees or the UFO. Stuff I plan to include later is:
- different levels (like a sea with boats to avoid)
- enemies that shoot at you (in later levels)
- boss fights at the end of levels
That is, if I can fit it all in! This may turn out to be 8k!

Tested it out on an Odyssey 2. It didn't work. Spent all night making it work. This is the result.

Made some changes to it. I plan on having multiple levels. Right now level 1 is endless, but I don't want it to stay that way. What I want to do is have a boss after a certain number of points. Hopefully this will give the player more incentive to shoot the enemies.

Nice Cool
You may not have noticed but there is a problem with symmetry in the white ship.

Level 1 completed.
Does Xevious have an ending?

Nice! Dodging the trees adds to the gameplay, and the boss is nicely done. Xevious-like with it's own personality. Will the boss move down into the playfield later, or are you planning on having it stay at the top? Looks like a winner.

The reason you die after beating the boss is because I haven't put in the second level yet.
And the boss will stay at the top and move left and right.
