James Bond ?-??-84

This is a late WIP version of James Bond for the Atari 400/800.  The game is pretty much the same as the final version at this point (not surprising since it was originally developed on the 5200 and ported to the 400/800), but there are some minor differences.  The biggest of these is that there is a level select so the player can choose any of the four scenarios to play.  This was most likely done so playtesters didn't have to keep playing through the game to try out the later scenarios.  Speaking of the scenarios, they're in an entirely different order in this prototype which makes things a little more difficult.  The scenarios will play in order however depending on which one you choose to start with, so picking Diamonds Are Forever as a starting point will follow the released versions scenario order.

The scenario order of the prototype is: Moonraker, For Your Eyes Only, The Spy Who Loved Me, and Diamonds Are Forever, while in the final version it's almost reversed: Diamonds Are Forever, The Spy Who Loved Me, Moonraker, For Your Eyes Only.


Prototype Differences
The title screen shows the current selected scenario at the bottom of the screen above the copyright
You can change your starting scenario with the fire button
You cannot skip the scenario intros with the fire button
The scenario order is different: Moonraker, For Your Eyes Only, The Spy Who Loved Me, and Diamonds Are Forever
The ground area in Diamonds Are Forever doesn't constantly flash red
The missile launch sound in The Spy Who Loved Me is different and there's no sound for when the mushroom mines drop down
The satellite sound is Moonraker is different


Notice the scenario name


No flashing red light for the craters


The stars still almost spell BOND like in the 5200 prototype


So what is the sunken ship resting on?
