Our "Let's Pong!" contest @ Karoshi Corporation forums is goin' on with some interesting updates:

- For now there are 3 finished entries that you can download here and there are more to come. (note:jltursan's entry link seems to be broken, hope it will be fixed soon)
- The deadline has been extended to the 1st of September

You have enough time to make a cool 1Kb Pong clone!. Give it a try!. A cool ROM will be created with all Pongs submitted! ;)

Right after I opened my page on lyxit.com they disappeared without trace. Yes, the page indeed was ugly; but I never think of such a bad feeling by the server! Tongue
I'm homeless now and finishing a new page with more info about the rest of my projects. I'll upload it soon...
Meanwhile, I can try to host only the binary. Sorry for the inconveniences. Sad

As the contest rules state, they are binary files that can be loaded from BASIC with BLOAD¨CAS:",r

I really like your initiative. really like to see the results. I do hope that you guys create a rom-file for those games. TR doesn't work to well with cas-games.

Or is there some util for cas-games to be loaded on turbo-r?

Mine is "XPong" and I've tested it on my TR without problems. You only need to copy the binary on a floppy and execute it with bload. The game is only 1Kb; but anyway I can't recommend the use of tape to store it! Tongue
