Depths of Hell Another Atari 2600 Game



Depths of Hell is a new Atari2600 game that I am developing. I started it back in 1999, so obviously its a long term project. The game is a vertical scroller with gravity and enemies that you must avoid or shoot. The goal is to descend down a pit and land at the bottom without crashing into walls or an enemy.


I will try to have as many levels as memory will permit. Im already using bank switching techniques to work around the 4K limit of the Atari2600. The game will most likely be 32K in size when finished.


Here are some screen shots.

You start out hovering above the pit.


Demons make their way up the pit.


You can drop bombs on enemies.


If you touch a wall, you crash.
