A little "remake" of one of my favourite games from the 80's.   O'Riley's Mine on the Atari 800 was a cracking little game and one that I've brought back to life here in a strange sort of way.


Alien Spelunking Showdown came about as part of a small RetroRemakes competition: http://lounge.punchingrobots.club/viewtopic.php?f=2&t=1062  

The name had to be chosen from a random game name generator, and some of the graphics (ok, quite a lot of) had to be from some random sprite generators.

After some playing around with ideas this game started to take form.  The black and white aesthetic is a throwback to my early days when all I had to play games on was a black and white TV. 

I've made it available on itch.io for anybody to play, but I would encourage you to try the original Atari 8bit game.

If enough people request it then I'll add a "Colour TV" mode to the game but otherwise, this is it.  Enjoy :)
