Atomic Arena
Posted by Michael on 4 June 2005, 04:18 GMT

[Atomic Arena] This is one of those retroactive news articles that we post in times of a news drought. Today's program-that-somehow-slipped-past-being-featured-a-month-ago is Atomic Arena by Vincent Corfdir. Available in both English and French versions for the 89, 92+, and V200, this is a side scrolling game much like Mario featuring powerups, bonuses, and lots of enemies. The graphics are very impressive - have a look at some of the animated screenshots on the file information page.

If you have someone to play it with, this is a great game. However, there are a bunch of powerups that I don't know what they do...perhaps an on-calc reference would be handy? Plus, it's hard to play it on one calc because the screen always follows player 1, so player 2 can kinda be left in the dust...it's not exactly fair. Overall, though, way to go Vincent!

Vincent as in the news article poster, or the game creator? ;D

*sigh* This game only worked in French on my v200, and the AI was terrible. Graphics, on the other hand, were great. Didn't make sprites hard to see or anything...

Let me guess: at the next "news drought", we are going to talk about sumo wrestling.

Atomic is a very nice looking game. Great work Vincent!

I agree... Fisch did a very nice job on Sumo Wrestling. It deserves some recognition too.

Ya'll keep up the good work!

The article seems misleading. This is not a mario sidescroller. This is a mortal kombat style fighting game, which happens to have lots of powerups and side scrolling.

Well Mario always seemed like a fighting game to me. You stomp on your opponents like the WWF does...only your opponents are lovable little turtles.

Nah, this is more of a Super Smash Bros., with the falling powerups and all.

The graphics certainly are very impressive. I imagine it took a long time to make.

I don't think I've seen graphics that good on a calc before...

The Graphics ARE really cool.
But what about games like Chrono Fantasy or TEXAS Fighters? The only thing to say about the GFX of those games is: amazing.
