Defend your Castle, standard version
Defend your Castle, NTSC with PAL-colors
Box, manual and labels, with nice 1970's artwork included.
Featuring "Castle Liverpool" on the box.

 

If you have no harmony-cartridge or any other emulation-device to play this game:
I have decided to produce PCB's with the game on it for the real hardware.

To save on costs and to keep the price down, I decided for the following:
"game PCB, 2 stickers and postage"
NO cartridge, use one of your own, any ATARI-MADE cartridge will do fine.

Set at a price of:
"15 euro including shipping, worldwide"
There will be NO limited production, I build and ship on demand.

What do you get:
-PCB fits
in an Atari-made cartridge. Any Silver, red, picture or text-label will do fine.

 -2 labels, top and front, printed on quality sticker-paper, to be cut out by yourself.

-Standard shipping in a small bubble envelop, no tracking.
-No box, No manual. You have to print, cut and fold it yourself, it's included in the download above.

How to get it:
Step 1:
-Send me an email. mr-atari @ mr-atari . com (remove the spaces)
-Specify STANDARD or NTSC-hack (see pictures below).

The STANDARD game can be used on PAL and NTSC systems.
PAL systems select COLOR-mode, while NTSC systems select BW-mode.
Supporting PAL and NTSC frame-rates, results in some color difference between both systems.


Standard game on PAL system


Standard game on NTSC system

 

For those NTSC users who like the PAL- colors better, there is a hacked NTSC-only version.
