thewiirocks: That's awesome, I made a Ballblazer demo myself about 10 years ago (referenced earlier in the thread) but it's great to see someone has surpassed it.

AdamTierneyWF: I really liked the concept of FadeOut but never got around to playing it when it was being discussed on [stella]. I'll have to pick up the final product and give it a try. Good to know that the concept evolved into what seems to be a great modern game, because so few 2600 concepts made it that far.

As someone who's done a good bit of 2600 programming and was active on the Stella mailing list (but doesn't have time to visit a web forum like AtariAge regularly), it's nice to see coders for modern systems trying to at least replicate the look of a 2600 game.... but there are at least three things in that screenshot that would not be possible on the VCS, mainly the number of color changes of the playfield.

Also, I found it a little insulting when wiiware-world informed me that my email domain doesn't exist when I went to sign up just now, since I get about 1100 emails a day to the address I gave. I had to use my fallback Yahoo account, which I check once every 6 to 8 weeks. You guys need better DNS or something.
