Game Release: 8bit-Slicks Online Racer for Apple, Atari, C64

Mensajepor 8bit-Dude » 18 Dic 2018 03:06

It was 18 months in the making... but finally I am pleased to announce the release of 8bit-Slicks for the Apple//e, Atari XL, and C64, just in time for the Xmas holiday!

The game supports up-to 4 players, local or online (using the Uthernet, DragonCart or RR-Net). 13 games servers are available, and results are recorded for competitive Ranking. So make sure to download the game and join us for some racing fun this holiday season!

I am now porting the game to the Atmos and Electron (which are also 6502 computers). After that, I will also make ports for 6809 and Z80 computers, so keep tuned!

Cheers, Tony (aka 8bit-Dude)

P.S: Feel free to repost this news and spread the word, the more players online the merrrier!!!

Hi Web8bits!

I was rushing this morning trying to announce the game release on various forums, thus the lack of self introduction. Sorry for that!

So I am a regular of the AtariAge forum, where I got a lot of support throughout this project. I am French, but I live in Kyoto Japan, and love developping games for 8bit era computers. My first computer was a Thomson MO5, and I hope to port this game also to the MO5/TO7 (and other 6809 based computers).

Cheers,
Tony

¡Bienvenido al foro y gracias por hacernos saber de tu desarrollo!

Welcome to the forum and congrats for such an multiplatform effort!

Nice to hear about you being an old MO-5 user, the machine has been covered sometimes in the forum; but there's not a strong user base here. Speaking from myself, being a 6809 lover, I've most of the Thomson machines, I simply like them :-)

Hi 8bit-Dude!

First of all welcome to Retrowiki!
Congratulations for finally bringing to reality what some of us were hoping to become reality since long time ago: a multiplayer game with real cross-platform support.
I even though once to start a project like this, but being restricted to have minimum skills on AGD this seemed a titanic job for me although I knew that someday somebody will bring a solution like yours :)
I love the idea of having more developments like this 8-bit slicks with the tools you're developing (covering Z80,6502,6509 processors is simply amazing: wow!)

Félicitations!

If you check the download page, you will see a list of future platforms to which I plan to port the game.
Besides, I am also developping a universal ethernet adapter that plugs into any standard joystick port...

Oh my god... that can be fantastic, really!, its a very good idea.
On MSX computers, We've got 3 different ethernet cards, and only 1 online game, connect 4. Also, we've got those mini games available for symbos. With that universal ethernet adapter, this stuff must be muuuuuch easier!! :D
