Astroclash

I got sucked into the whole Amico drama. It was very entertaining.

I’ve never been a big fan of original Intellivision. Although I do have a couple of those systems and a ton of boxed games. They were easy to come by in the 90s and crazy cheap.

However I am a big fan of Keith Robinson the people who made the games. Blue Sky Rangers. The original web site still exists but it’s now stained with Amico garbage.

I’m a sucker for the stories of the people behind the games and their process. Documentaries like Howard Scott Warshaw’s Once Upon Atari are my jam.

As a fan of old games. I thought I’d try and make my own re-imagined versions of some of the Intellivision title. At least one anyway.

Start off with an Intellivision classic.

Breakdown the mechanics. Make it even simpler.

One button. Shoot rocks. A bomb.

Then there is name of the game.

Saw this on Howard Scott Warshaw’s Once Upon Atari documentary. It’s just a list of titles for games the Atari marketing department wanted.
