I spent some time the last few days converting Petscii Robots over to the X16. It's now more or less fully functional. Well, you can play the game from beginning to end, anyway.. But it still lacks sound, and it is using the default font, which I hope to change soon to the PET font, which will make it look nicer. It also lacks a lot of effects like screen-shake, EMP flash, etc. I'll be working to add those in over the next few days. Also, since the game is designed for 40x25 screen, there is some black area at the bottom.
That being said, once I get this version completed, I'll slowly begin the transition to a custom graphic version for the X16 as originally promised, which should fill the whole screen.

Looks great! 🙂

X-mas wish; would it be possible for you to do an Apple II GS version of the game?

He doesn't do most of the ports himself. He's very involved in the process, but other teams tackle the coding. Someone was working on the Apple IIgs, but they've gone radio silent last I'd heard. It's unknown when or if they'll get back to it.

Ahh. Thanks for the update.

Very unfortunate!

I noticed this thread got outdated. On August 30, 2021, there was a video by The 8 Bit Guy, showing progress made in X16 port of The Petscii Robots.

Here is a link to video, notice it already has start time for the X16 part:

Also here is a few screenshots of the game from this video:
