Atomic W.A.R.

Postby oss003 » Sun Jul 02, 2017 11:14 am

Hi guys,

it's time to add my latest Atomic game conversion to the Acorn Atom Archive. This time it's a conversion of the BBC game: W.A.R.
The game includes two 4 scenes landscapes which can be choosen from the menu.

WAR isn't the best game but it has nice graphics and it is a lot faster than F14 Tomcat. Also the resolution already was 256x192 pixels monochrome and that's the ideal format for an Atom conversion. Probably the BBC version is a ZX Spectrum conversion. Another advantage for conversion is that the game uses a buffer where the game engine builds every frame and then the buffer is copied to the screen. This means that in fact the only thing to change for conversion is the buffer to screen copy routine. Well that's almost true :wink: ...... including some other small changes.

There is an AtoMMC version and a Tape version for Wouter Ras his emulator. Maybe later I'll add a Disk and CSW/UEF version because that need some game changes to get this working.

A preview can be watched at: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8l1atz28YWU
So for now, have fun with playing Atomic W.A.R. ..... 8)

Greetings
Kees
