Homebrew developers Ricky Hunter and Chad Schoettle have released MONSTER MANAGEMENT SECURITY BUREAU OF CINCINNATI 2 (or M.M.S.B.C. II), an Atari 2600 game built to promote a comic featured at the upcoming Louisville Arcade Expo. An alternate download link is here.

M.M.S.B.C. II is a cooperative side-scrolling shooter that features multiple difficulty levels, enemy types, and boss encounters. 2600 enthusiasts can marvel at the game's technical achievements, which include parallax scrolling (!) and the assigning of unique colors for all on-screen objects.

If you don't have a flash cartridge, it's recommended that you play the game using the Atari 2600 emulator Stella.
