The Mating Of The Colorworms - An Atari 2600 VCS Demo

Release: Nordlicht 2019, 3rd place in 512 bytes compo.

View in emulator running in web-browser: Stellerator (PAL), Stellerator (NTSC)



code, music


Just load, lean back and enjoy. Pulling the B/W switch will not advance the effect. A version with a menu is included: you can choose between the PAL and NTSC version. The NTSC version has 20% faster music and is only a rough port with number of lines and colors adjusted. The menu runs on 60Hz with coloring that works with both PAL and NTSC.

The online version does not feature the menu, but only different versions for PAL and NTSC.

The code has been slightly updated since a few bugs were found and fixed during the creation of "Gar Nix".

Note: This demo is not SuperCharger compatible, since the SuperCharger does not support CommaVid RAM. A separate SuperCharger version is included inside the archive. This version will break the 512 bytes limit, though: the PAL version is about 550 bytes, not counting the padding and tape header.
