A high scoring game, loosely based on a never released prototype Atari 2600 game called "Aquaventure". You are a diver, collecting the treasure from the deep, trying to avoid the sea creatures. Made for the 24 hour competition at

Thumbs up for me! It's a great game :D I really like the old school look, and the sounds are great too :D The only downside is that the game is a bit hard, with the current fish speed. meh.

Very good, but something very similar was released for the Dragon 32, called something like shark attack...

I found that I often died when the screen scrolled down because it moved me into the path of an octopus. Also, what's with the crazy "Noname" stuff in the installer? Great graphics as usual, though.

Someone should really get rid of Chris' n00bie rating...

Someone should mention this was made for the 24-hour challenge at KM.

Which would those be?
Posted by Chris Och 16th September, 2004

Yep, I made it for the 24 hour comp, so don't expect that much from it :). I think the Atari 2600 games make a good template for a comp like that. I too love the simplicity, yet challenge of those games. Go to, and find "Aquaventure" to see what I found the inspiration from. Like I say, not much, but in 24 hours, I guess not too bad :).

Oh, and upon Andi's whipping..err request, I will add a high score table that you can upload your score on the Natomic site. As it stands, you have to write it down or something ;).

This game is fun yes, but it's a simple concept NICE but SIMPLE. The "menu" for any help doesn't exist, for this reason at last playig, i've lost a lot of lives.. frustrating.. -.- Hum.. Good graphic, like children's games.
Posted by Chris Och 16th September, 2004

Okay, it's on the Natomic site. I really did it so quickly, that nobody at Natomic knew about it, so I hosted it on my crappy site ;). Danjo, you made a game similar to this?
Posted by danjo 16th September, 2004

yes - exactly this game; well an unfinished version somewhere on a cd

I have also made an diving game called -> "Scupa Erkki". 800x640 resolution, with 16 mill. c. palette.

It's very rude to advertise in some else's game comments.

whatever Iglu86, just keep it away from the comments and all will be just fine...

Now that I've played the bugless version, I have to say this is keen. I still think that bubbling sound kills the retro mood somewhat though.

But Aquaventure was released. It got called Aquatak. I got it here in the office.There's also a illegal hack that was sold around Australia called Bi Bi. Damn I wish I had a digital camera!
Posted by Chris Och 21st September, 2004

Really? I will have to look for this. If you go to , they say that it was never released. Thanks, Dr Evil Face.
