Wildlife! for the Odyssey2/Videopac

 

SOLD OUT

 


 

Somewhere in the middle of the Brazilian jungle, Josué Jorge is lost and nearly at his wit's end,
 but the thought of finding the Holy Grail keeps him going.
  
 His quest will not be easy, for many dangers await him -
Wild natives, killer crabs, abandoned bonfires...
 and the deadliest of them all - "The Aquarium"  - a secret underwater series of passage ways.
 

Hold your breath and swim fast, but do not touch the walls of the underwater passage ways.
 You can do this! But beware... lethal clown fish protecting something shining there in the depths below.
 Could it be the Holy Grail?


 Stay focused! There is time, but you must be quick and you must be careful.
Good luck on your quest for the Holy Grail, Josué Jorge! You'll need it!

 

2600 Connection is proud to offer the latest Odyssey2/Videopac game from Rafael Cardoso - Wildlife! 

Wildlife! features a "jungle adventure" style of gameplay that has never been available in the library of Odyssey2 / VIDEOPAC videogames.  The inspiration for Wildlife! comes from the famous Atari VCS/2600 games Pitfall! (by Activision) and Adventure (by Atari).  First, you'll need to obtain a key from a wild native.  Next, you'll have to swim through an underwater maze to find the Holy Grail that's locked away in a chest.  But there's more than 1 chest...

Wildlife! is an 8K game cartridge for the Odyssey2/Videopac systems, designed and programmed by Rafael Cardoso.  Rafael is previously known for the Odyssey2 games Sea Rescue, Hot Love, Piggyback Planet, and High Water Patrol.  Scott Stilphen is handling the production of carts and Tim Duarte is handling production of the manuals and boxes. Artwork for the manual and box was created by Rafael Cardoso & Alessandro Marcelo Verdério.  A limited run of 100 boxed copies of Wildlife! are being made available in the Odyssey2-style.

Here's what people are saying about Wildlife! ...
 

"In my opinion, WILDLIFE! is your best game [Rafael]. The game looks very, very professional. Makes a lot of fun to play. Thank you very much for this great game. This is a "must have" in a collection."       -Thomas Becker

"I finally had time to play WILDLIFE! and it's awesome! It belongs to the category of jump 'n run (and dive) games which were always my favorite. It reminds me of the gambling halls in the 1980s where I spent many hours and most of my pocket money for such games."      -partyicebear on videopac.nl/forum

"I got WILDLIFE! from you, it was my first homebrew for any system. I have to say, I like it a lot. Maybe if you were programming back then, [ in the 1980s ] this system might have had more longevity." -Andrew Lesko

Release date planned for March 17, 2014!

March 1, 2014: I am happy to give an update on the progress of WILDLIFE for the Odyssey2.

Cartridges are currently being made and Rafael has approved the manual so those are being printed as well. If all goes as planned, I am hoping to release and start accepting orders on Monday, March 17. (That is St. Patrick's Day here in the USA.)

I am not accepting reservations at this time. This will be a release of 100 cartridges and box, so I do not expect there to be a shortage. Everyone should be able to purchase and obtain a game.

Once the game is ready and I have them "in hand" and "ready to go", I will post an update here.
Look for that post on March 17.
