WILDLIFE! for the Odyssey2



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 Wildlife!, the latest Odyssey2/Videopac game from Rafael Cardoso. 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 following Odyssey2 games:  Sea Rescue, Hot Love, Piggyback Planet, and High Water Patrol.  Scott Stilphen handled the production of cartridges and Tim Duarte handled 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! were made available in the Odyssey2-style. These quickly sold out. In December of 2014, An agreement was made with Marc Verraes (www.videopac.fr) so that another version of Wildlife! could be available for sale for those folks in Europe who happen to own a Videopac system that can display "plus" graphics. A limited run of 50 game cartridges were made and it is called Wildlife+. In exchange, Marc allowed 2600 Connection to sell and distribute an "unlimited edition" of Fatso!, the first game for the Odyssey2 that was programmed by our friend Chris Read.

We are now happy to release the "unlimited edition" of Wildlife!. It does not have a serial number and no box is included - it is just the game cartridge and the color manual. Wildlife!  "unlimited edition" also has another difference: the Green aquarium has replaced the white and light blue aquarium. See below.


Your adventure starts here!



A whole world awaits just below the surface...



... for those who know how to swim!

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
