Defend your Castle
My first game written for the Atari 2600/VCS.
The game is free to use for personal usage.
(Released 24-december-2016)

"Battle for the Kingdom"
(funny and fast 2 player game)


(Featuring "Castle Liverpool" )

You are operating the catapult, defender of your castle.
Your goal is to destroy the opponents’ castle before he destroys yours.....

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

The immortal John  Hancock did a very nice review of my game :-)
Affordable Homebrew: Defend Your Castle 2600

 

If you want a physical game instead of the free download, you can order a D.I.Y-kit !

Set at a budget price of:
"15 euro including shipping, worldwide"
There will be NO limited production, I build and ship on demand.
"Numbered game PCB, 2 stickers and postage"

(You need a ATARI text/picture/silver/red-label cartridge, so NO 3rd party cartridges).
You end up with something like this:

-yeah-


This is what you get:
-PCB fits perfectly
in an Atari-made cartridge.

 -2 labels, top and front, printed on quality sticker-paper.

-Standard shipping in a small bubble envelop, no tracking.

NO cartridge
(use one of your spare/doubles/defective).
NO box, NO printed manual.
(You have to print, cut and fold it yourself, it's included in the download above.)

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.
