There are at least 20 channels on Youtube called Rage Studios. Fortunately I recognized your Avatar. Your channel is called Sega Tron. I've subscribed to your channel, and want to thank you for subbing to mine. I verbally thanked you in my latest video on my Comic Book collection (#3). I'll be doing another gaming video soon. :)

Yes, Eagle Comics, It's been awhile since I looked at them. Formated the same way as 2000 A.D. Comics. I have issues of it too. What appeared in 2000 A.D. was often republished in the U.S., and it's the American reprints that I own the most issues of. Each series was usually given its own comic book. The earliest that I own were published here by Eagle Comics. Then they moved to Quality Comics, which eventually became Quality/Fleetway.

I know I own issues of the following (American reprints):

The Ballad of Halo Jones
Judge Dredd
Nemesis
Rogue Trooper
Strontium Dog(s)

Some of those books contained stories from other series, like Judge Anderson.

Hard to say. The funny thing is, I would frequently go from having 10 or more extra lives (X), down to 5 or 6, and then fight my way back up to having X. Today either I was getting tired, or reaching my current limit, as I hit no extra lives a few times, working my way back up to 5 or so, and then dropping back down to none. My primary concern was the weather. When it rained I feared a power outage.

Now that I have figured out how to post Exclusive videos to Patreon/Cessnaace, I'll be doing it more often. I currently have two polls going. The first is in the Cummunity section of Youtube/cessnaace. I asked which retro console should be my next. By an overwhealming percentage the Atari XE GS is leading both the Intellivision and the ColecoVision, which I find interesting. The other poll is at Patreon/Cessnaace, and has to do with my possibily adding AtariAge Discount Coupons and Gift Cards as reward options, but no one has particpated in that one, so I changed it from Patron Only to Public. If no one votes I may not do it. Al, at AtariAge, is ready to work with me if I decide to do it.

Draconian: Quadrant Gamma / Sector 1; Difficulty: Kids

I did not upload the video to my cessnaace Youtube account. I wanted to limit where I posted it to High Score and as Exclusive Content at https://www.patreon.com/Cessnaace

So, I uploaded it to an alternate account as a Public video, posted the URL at Patreon/Cessnaace and here, then changed video from Public to Unlisted. Neither Patreon nor High Score would accept the Unlisted URL as being valid, which is why I've done it this way. Bamse, of course, gets to see it twice. wink

I don't recall if I've mentioned this before, but I have some British comic books in my collection. I believe I have some issues of Dan Dare. I know I have a Corgi die-cast model van in my collection that has Dan Dare printed on it.

I agree. By-the-way I started playing a game of Draconian for the 2600 2 days ago. I still am. My 7800 has been on continusely for over 48 hours, either playing Draconian or having the game paused. I started a game in the Gamma Quadrant in Kids difficulty. I started with Sector 1, of course, and am now as far as Sector 371. I pause the game whenever my wife is asleep, or I am (or both, or both whatever). That 7800 is still cool to the touch. Of course it uses an external power supply, which helps.

Agreed/ Oh, and I double checked the manual. No mention of the Difficulty Switches, so I think that the seperate categories of b/Novice and A/Expert are a mistake.

Bomb on Pixel City; Atari 2600; Both Difficulty Switches set for b

I didn't notice anything in the manual regarding the Difficulty Switches. They were both set for b though.

One of 4 Atari 2600 home brews that I recently purchased from Good Deal Games. I posted two videos to my Youtube channel cessnaace regarding these 4 games. One was an unboxing video, the other a video where I reviewed them. Michael, of GDG, included a bonus not seen in the final photo, but I did show it in the unboxing video. A Disney/Square Enix Kingdom Hearts banner. :)

Games like this with names already on the Scoreboard I find interesting, as there's no telling what names you will find. With this one it appears to be members of the design team.

From what I've been able to find online a Spectrum port was planned, and even made it as far as the playable stage, when it was cancelled, primarily due to the poor sales of Solar Jetman on the NES, which I don't understand. It's a good game.

Well, I've never opened my 7800 up and don't intend to, but I can state for a fact that the 7800's Power Supply is external, and small.

What died in my Intellivision was the CPU, which fried itself, and I never left it on for extended periods of time. Since I now use my 7800 for all of my 2600 games, it gets alot of use.

Wasn't this game in the same series as the NES game Solar Jetman: The Hunt for the Golden Warship? I know that the NES game was the third entry in a series. At any rate I love Solar Jetman so much that I own two boxed copies, one of which I bought brand new when it was released.

Thanks Bamse!

I now own every Atari 2600 game from Champ Games. However, they will be releasing three more arcade-to-2600 ports this year. I got all the info straight from John W. Champeau, so I posted everything at Patreon/Cessnaace. I recently changed the URL for my account to Patreon/Cessnaace to make it easier to find.

I've worked out an agreement with Al at AtariAge to offer my Patrons AtariAge Discount Coupons, but I can't afford to do it yet as I'm losing money on Patreon as it is. I'm still working hard posting exclusive content every day. So far text articles, but in a few days I will receive 4 Atari 2600 Homebrews from Good Deal Games, including a copy of a Limited Run release (limited to 25 copies). I will record two videos, an un-boxing video, which will be available to Patreon supporters only (still just $1 per month), and then I will do another video for posting on Youtube.

Thanks for the vote! :)

Thanks. It took two days to play, as my wife went to bed while I still had an X  (10 or more extra lives), so I paused it and continued playing it the next afternoon. By the time I finished my console had been on for over 18 hours and it was barely warm went I touched the vents. The 7800 apprently doesn't overheat like the Intellivision. In fact I've owned the same one for over 25 years! Didn't you tell me that you were buying a 7800?

Thanks for the YES vote! :)

I need to do some new collection videos, as I've continued buying games eventhough I had stopped doing videos. Now I have alot of caching up to do. When I finally replace my Intellivision I doubt that I will ever find a replacement copy of Stadium Mud Buggies. Then again, I'm sure that there have been some homebrews released for the system. Let's face it, just about every retro console has homebrews these days. :)

Homebrew sequel to Alien Attack, itself a homebrew. Both purchased from Good Deal Games. This game has some elements of Space Zap. Photo 2 is of the game prior to starting

Display layout is as follows (Photo 1). Top Left: Timer. Top Right: Score. Bottom Left: Shields. Bottom Right: Level Optained: The score resets at the end of each Level. So, I reached Level 5 with a Score of 5.

Cool. I'd like to get a Spectrum, or Timex Sinclair, but first I have to replace my Intellivision, plus buy a Colecovision and an Atari XE GS. So many systems out there, with so many games, and not enough money (or space) for them all, but with over 30 systems in my collection I'm far from owning everything that I want. laugh

Meteor Defense for the 2600 is like that too. I can usually reach 20 extra lives, but once I get up around 75,000 points I go through them rather quickly. Meteor Defense, in fact, plays like a horizontal Astrosmash.

I've found that alot of people in the U.K. still love their Speccys. I don't think they sold well in the U.S., as Timex stopped releasing it. They just couldn't compete against the likes of Atari and Commadore. Although now Timex is still around, while the same can't be said of Atari or Commadore.

Yes, and sadly we are passed the prime for arcades. In the 80s they were everywhere, now you have to hunt for them. At least we have Dave & Busters, who probably buy more arcade games than anyone else. Fortuantely Jacksonville has a D & Bs. Disney has several arcades in their Walt Disney World Resorts in Orlando, but it's an expensive way to visit an arcade.

I've talked with the manager of the Jacksonville D & Bs, and he said that they had tried putting in Pinball machines, but it really wasn't worth it. They're expensive to maintain, and were earning roughly $300 per month. A typical redemption game takes in thousands of dollars, so to them they earn their floor space.

The one time I talked with Gary Stern I asked why D & Bs didn't have any Pinball machines in their Jacksonville location, and he said that they'd been trying hard to get them to place some on location, but so far have had no luck. That was in 2016, and even now D & Bs has no Pinball. Fortunately, according to Gary, Barcades are becoming a great avenue for Pinball machine sells.

But D & Bs does carry video arcade games, mostly from Global VR and Sega.

You can start eating the green fish once you hit 5 points. No need to wait until you hit 10. The electric eels will reverse course if you get behind them. This game supposedly has voice synthesis, but that requires the AtariVox and I down't own one. I also turn off the music, because it drives me nuts. Other than that it's a good game.

You might be interested to know that Space Instigators for the 2600 is in the system here. It is a better version of Space Invaders, with rows containing 9 aliens instead of just 6. I just ordered a copy from Atari Age (it's only $20). I've seen play videos of it. There is no flicker at all! :)

Centipede; Atari 7800/Emulation; Difficulty: Novice

My controller has taken a dislike to this game. My cannon will sometimes, for no reason, dart far right. Sometimes this causes my cannon to collide with something. It can't be the controller (Logitech Xbox 360) as it still works with every other game in EMU7800. I'm kinda getting use to it, but it's far easier for me to play on my actual 7800 console with a Sega Genesis Game Pad.

I saw a play video on Youtube of Millipede some weeks back, the arcade version, being played via emulation. They guy was obviously cheating because I noticed that the Spider and other baddies were passing right thru him and not killing him. You didn't cheat, of course. I wonder if this game has any difficulty modes the way the 7800 version of Centipede does. Millipede is just too frantic for me.

From what I understand the arcade release of Millipede wasn't quite the successs that Atari was expecting.

There must be about a million arcade games, as I keep getting exposed to ones that I had never heard of before. The Japan exclusives alone come to huge number. I saw a documentary the other day that mentioned that there was once a time when arcade games were made exlusively in the U.S. Even the earliest Japanese arcade games and consoles used American chips. Sega used chips by Texas Instruments for their first few consoles.

Prior to my uploading my lastest Youtube video, covering some Japanese releases for the PSP that I had picked up, I started a Patreon account tied to my Youtube channel. I checked tonight and I have my first Patreon Supporter. While I didn't create any tiers my one supporter has pledged $5 per month. I didn't realize when I set it up that Patreon Supporters can see a list of all of the channels that I support. So far I've onlt posted two text articles, which are exclusive to Patrons, but eventually I plan on posting some exclusive videos there as well, or maybe in advance of when they go Public on my channel. Still trying to figure all this still out. 

Thanks again for the votes, and for your interest in my channel.

Thanks, I appreciate that Bamse! I fully expected someone to comment on the Pinball Arcade cap that I wore in the video, but noone has. Anywho, I just watched a play video of Shark Shark and it's the same premise, except you never see other fish eating other fish. You only get 1 life in Go Fish!, so you have to be careful not to eat a fish even the slightest bit larger than you are, because if you do it means instant death. In Expert you start off as a larger fish, which makes it harder to move around. And in either difficulty you have to watch the electric eels carefully. If they sense you behind them they will reverse course. The one compliant that I have is the part about only getting the one life.

Pinball FX3: Safe Cracker; PC; Standard

I haven't put much time into this table. I've logged more time on it in The Pinball Arcade on Steam.

As you can see the next batch of Williams tables are near being released. On Steam anyway. They will be released May 28th. Speaking of Steam and Pinball FX3, word in the Steam forums has it that Zen Studios has aquired the Stern license, with just one more Stern table to be released for The Pinball Arcade (the new Elvira table). As Zen Studios spends 18 to 24 months working on each table, I don't know when we'll get the first Stern table in Pinball FX3, but as Stern Pinball also owns the rights to tables by Stern Electronics, Data East, and Sega, this is quite exciting if true.

Weird seeing the saucer suddenly explode like that. Your shots are only visiable some of the time, as we discussed before. I wish I were better at Space Invaders and its clones.

Go Fish!; Atari 2600; Difficulty Settings: A/A

Homebrew for the 2600. In photo 3 this score is listed 3rd. The top score was achieved in the Novice settings. 

This is a highly addictive game, although inexpensive. Just $25 at Atari Age. I had been playing it frequently until I switched to Draconian. Now I need to go back and play Go Fish! some more. :)

Dream Pinball 3D: Amber Moon; PC/DOSBox (GoG); Difficulty: Normal

This game was released via GoG 8 years ago. I'm not sure when I bought it though, as I also own it on Steam. However, the Steam version quit working several Driver Updates ago (Graphics Card), so it's a good thing that I'd also bought it on GoG. As can be seen in the final photo I've so far logged 4h 39m playing Dream Pinball 3D on GoG, and that was all logged playing the Amber Moon table in Easy and Normal difficulties.

A homebrew (or hack), I don't know which. Still cool though.

I have a homebrew for the 2600 that I can't submit scores for yet because the score disappears the second I die. It's either Alien Attack or Alien Revenge! (I own both).

It was about my next video, which will be shot using a new Web Camera (hasn't arrived yet, but should by Friday). That video will go up either late Friday or late Saturday, depending on when the camera arrives. I had to choose between 1080p and 30 fps (frames per second), or 780p and 60 fps, due to budgeting reasons. I, being a gamer, went with 780p and 60 fps. :)

Epic Pinball: African Safari; PC (GoG)/DOSBox

Accoring to GoG Galaxy I've spent 6h 12m playing Epic Pinball (see final photo). GoG is a great place to find games that aren't on Steam, such as the old DOS games that require DOSBox to run. It's real easy to use. Simply launch a game via GoG Galaxy. If the game requires DOSBox to run it will launch DOSBox, loading the game into it automatically. Even I can use it. :)

I accept friend requests on both Steam and GoG Galaxy. In fact, my user name is the same on both gaming portals, MarkMSH.

Centipede; Atari 7800; Difficulty: Novice

Controller: Sega Genesis Game Pad. This game is, of course, also compatible with the 7800 ProLine Controller. I believe that it also supports the Atari Trak-Ball Controller. However I don't own one so can't test this. I really need a Trak-Ball Controller, as Atari Age keeps releasing games re-coded for it as part of their Trak-Ball Series. Two of the games in that series are Centipede and Millipede for the 2600.

SpiceWare has informed me that while the maximum number of digits that can be displayed during game play is 7, the title screen can handle 8. So a maximum score of 99,999,999 is possible. Not likely in my case, but possible.

I think the manual was done by Nathan Strum. If you don't already own this game then you should consider buying a copy. Nothing in it for me, but it's a truely awesome game. The cartridge will work with NTSC, PAL, and SECAM systems. I thought that Champ Games was raising the bar on the 2600 with games like Caverns of Mars, Lady Bug, Super Cobra Arcade, and Mappy. Now SpiceWare is uping the game, so to speak, too. :)

Welcome to the club. No game currently offered by Atari Age will load into my emulator. Of course that may be explained by the fact that I downloaded it for FREE at the Microsoft Store. There were alot of homebrews for the 7800 already pre-loaded, but most of those are no longer available at Atari Age for purchase.

Draconian: Quadrant Delta / Sector 1; Atari 2600; Difficulty: Easy

Homebrew port of arcade game Bosconian (both versions, Midway and Namco). Includes digitized voices, and without the need of AtariVox. The game uses the Melody Board's CDF mode.

Your 'SMARTASS' (it's in the manual) says the following:

  • Blast Off!
  • Alert! Alert!
  • Battle Stations!
  • Spy Ship Sighted!
  • Condition Red!!

Condition Red means that the enemy is throwing everything it has left at you. So if there are 4 bases left, then all 4 will be lauching wave after wave of everything they've got!

I wish I had that mod, but none of my consoles have been modded. The closest thing to a mod that I have is a GameCube with a custom skin. I showed it on my channel right after I bought. It's not my original GameCube, although I still have it. The box too. It was a bundle sold by Radio Shack that included Metroid Prime as the pack-in game. I only have a few systems that I own multiples of.

  • Atari 2600 Jr.  x3 (2 dead; 1 rattles but works)
  • Commodore 64   x2 (Both given to me by an uncle, Boxed)
  • NES (Model 1)   x3 (2 dead. needing new pins; My original still has its box)
  • Nindendo GBA  X2 (1 Grey; 1 Blue)
  • Sega Genesis (Model 2)   My original still works, but I received a second one from a subscriber along with a Sega CD, which I needed. My original Genesis still has its box
  • SNES   x2. Both still work. My original still has its box

OLD SYSTEMS THAT I WANT

  • 3DO   My Goldstar still has its box, but this system has 3 motors, and one's dead.
  • Atari XE GS   Never had one; really want one.
  • ColecoVision   Never had one; really want one.
  • Intellivsion   I had a Model 1, but the CPU fried.

Centipede: Game 2; Atari 2600/Emulation.

Came close to rolling the score, and this was only my 2nd attempt at Game 2, which I didn't even know existed until ZilchSr. posted his score.

The final photo I submitted because I love Draconian (an awesome port of the arcade game Bosconian). I played in the Delta Quadrant today, which contains Sectors submitted by Atari Age members. Some really wierd Sector designs here. In fact I've even found massive bases which, once destroyed, revealed another base. I highly recommend this game!

I don't know what happened. Most of the FX2 tables are missing from the database. I don't think that this was always the case.

Sweater? OK! [Points]; PC (Steam).

First game in the Sweater? OK! series. Mixes the genres of the traditional snake game with that of a grid game. The game is very affordable on Steam. Currently .49 cents if bought seperately, but I bought it as part of a bundle that contains 5 games and 2 soundtracks for less than $5.

Me too. I started with the Alpha Quadrant in Normal, since that's currently all that's in the system. I'm playing the Quadrants in order, from Kids to Hard. I just finished the GAMMA Quadrant (what the Draconian programmers came up with) in Hard. Next up is the Delta Quadrant. I'm interested to see what the Atari Age members came up with, although the highest Sector that I've managed to reach in any Quadrant is Sector 34 (in Kids), so there's plenty more for me to see.

Pinball FX3; Rome; PC (Steam)

I've become painfully aware of just how rusty I've become on the older Pinball FX tables. Ever since the launch of Pinball FX3 I've been concentrating on the tables that are FX3 exclusives, as I've "been there, done that" on the 75 tables that I own in Pinball FX2. Many transfered over to FX3, but I spent so much time playing them in FX2 that I've since moved on to the FX3 exclusives.

I'm sure that I'm even rusty on the tables that are FX2 exclusives. I really like them though. Ms. Splosion Man is my favorite, but I also like the 2 South Park tables, Plants vs. Zombies, and Super League Football (Soccer) - I even own all 8 teams.

I need to put more time into these older tables.

While I've earned Table Mastery Rewards 1, 2 (Mist Demon), and 3 (Ghosts) that proves nothing. I've become rusty on this table. My High Score for Sorcerer's Lair in Pinball FX2 is over 199,000,000 points!!! I know because I just checked. While I'm ranked 112,477th in FX3 on this table, I'm ranked 50th in FX2. Depressing.

I've been playing this game everynight, either via Emulation, or on actual hardware. This is a game I own a complete boxed copy of. Although over the past few days I've been playing Draconian (for the 2600) alot too.

If you zoom into the final photo you will notice that this score was achieved at 4:47am. Time means nothing when in pursuit of a goal.

Draconian / Quadrant A (Alpha) / Sector 1; Difficulty: Normal.

This is a really good Homebrew port of the original. I removed my previous score because it was embarrisingly low.

This version features Speach synthesis (no AtariVox needed), and features everything from both Arcade releases (and more). The game contains a total of 5 Quadrants (I know, a Quadrant is technically a 4th of an area, but this game has 5).

  • A  ALPHA {Midway arcade levels}
  • B  BETA  {Namco arcade levels}
  • r  GAMMA {Draconian contributors}
  • ^  DELTA {Submitted by Atari Age members}
  • E  EPSILON {randomly generated}

I've submitted requests for the 4 Quadrants not yet in the system, and for all 4 Difficulty Modes. This game is highly addictive and still available from Atari Age. It matters not what TV standard your set uses. This game auto-detects if you are using NTSC, PAL, or SECAM (although if you experience problems you can manually select your TV standard from the menu. The game is $35 for the cartridge, manual, and poster. For an addition $15 you can get a box too, while supplies last. I did that. In fact I usually do the Box Upgrade when it's available.

I paid slightly less than the quoted prices because I have an Annual Atari Age Subscription, which includes many perks, including 5% off of all Atari Age Store purchases. That adds up to quite the deal with my spending habbits. :)

I just submitted requests for all 5 Qudrants (a Quadrant, from a scientific point of view, is made up of 4 sections, hence the 'Quad' part), but with this game there are 5, plus 4 Difficulty Modes. So, if my math is correct, I submitted 19 requests. Those make up the ones that are missing.

More Sweater? OK!; PC (Steam); Time (Longest). The Time Column is on the Far Ride side of the Leaderboard.

The title screen disappears before the Screenshot command can kick in. All that's left is what you see in Screenshot #2.

This is the follow-up to Sweater? OK! It has additional aspects to it. For example, in the final Screeenshot you can see the Love Case. I didn't figure out that you click on with your mouse for the game to stop on a random Power-Up until after I had to abort a much higher scoring game to get off this screen.

Sweater? OK!; PC (Steam); Time (Longest). Far Right Column.

Final Screenshot: Taken while the game was still in action. I'm the green square sitting on the red x, upper left on Grid.

I submitted 2 requests for this game. One for Points (Highest), and one for Time (Longest). I was told that the Points chart was processed, but I've only been able to find the one for Time.

This is a very inexpensive (.49 cents), yet highly addictive, Snake type game played on a Grid. The Snakes are made up of buttons. If you can get to them fast enough, while they're forming, you can eat them. At all other times you cannot eat the buttons, in fact their touch is deadly.

When I first started playing this game it was with a Keyboard. I was barely surviving over a minute. But I discovered that it does have Controller support (Steam and XBox 360), I had to flip the Compatibility Switch from # to O (on the back of the Controller) to get it to work though. Doing that made the Xbox 360 Controller work with this game. I did have to switch it back to # for it to work with EMU7800.

Oh, and I received a 'boat load' of games yesterday from Atari Age, which was mainly made up of Homebrews for the 2600 and 7800. But it did contain 3 Atari 2600 Custom Reproductions, which included River Patrol.

River Patrol; Atari 2600

I've read a scan of the manual for this game several times at Atari Mania. No mention is made of the Difficulty Switches, and there seems to be no difference in the way the game plays in A or b. But if you're curious, I achieved this score with both switches set for b.

Sadly, just four more Remake tables left to be released. As it is though Zaccaria Pinball has over 100 tables.

I just received a home brew for the 7800 ProSystem that I bought via eBay. It's called Lava Lamps & 8-Track Theatre. It was self-published by the programmer, Clark Otto, Jr. last year. It's apprently based on an actual radio show. Anywho, I've only seen it pop up on eBay. Rainbow Invaders can be purchased at Atari Age for $20.

On Steam this game is called Pinball Deluxe: Reloaded, and this table is called Treasure Hunter (I think). The Steam version for this game is close to getting another table added to it. The last table they added was free, so I'm hoping the next one will be too.

HINT: You don't have to enter a gas station to get gas. You just have to nudge it. 

HINT: If the worms are too close and it looks like you're not going to get them, hug a side wall and speed-up slightly until you're past them.

HINT: If you get desperate, with worms closing in and you are blocked in by the blocks, shooting the gas station will destroy them all. You won't get points doing this. Save it for when you're desperate.

HINT: Shoot every block you possibly can.

Most of these tips are in the Manual. :)

Atari Age offers quite a few homebrew, and homebrew ports, for the Colecovision, but not this one. I noticed that it has a copyright date of 2010, so maybe they did sell it at one point but no longer do. That happens sometimes. At any rate, I really like this version. If I ever manage to get a Colecovision this is a game that I'd want to own.

In the photos showing my console you can see two home brew shooters for the 2600, Alien Attack and its follow-up Alien Revenge!. Actually, they were released in 2018 along with a third game from the same programmer, Edward Smith. The third game being Pickle, which is still available at Good Deal Games.

Speaking of Good Deal Games, Michael Thomasson of GDG is trying to secure publishing deals for Sega Master System home brew games, which up to now have had no or very limited physical releases. He has asked for my help in this endevour, as he's been wanting to add SMS home brews at Good Deal Games for quite some time. If you, or someone that you know, has programmed an SMS home brew please contact Michael Thomasson. I've posted about this in the forums at SMS Power!

The 7800 is a system that deserved a far better fate than it had, although I must say that it wasn't the first system that I got.

New, my early systems I purchased (at full price) in the following order:

  • Atari VCS (Babbages I think)
  • Sega Master System (Toy 'R Us)
  • Nintendo Entertainment System (Toys 'R Us)
  • Sega Genesis (Wal-Mart)
  • Super NES (Toy's 'R Us)

Easrly systems I bought new, but heavily discounted:

  • Sega 32X ($19.95; Toy 'R Us; Additional games $7 each)
  • Atari 7800 ProSystem ($79.95; Outlets Mall; 20 Sealed 2600 games and 20 Sealed 7800 games came with it)
  • Atari Jaguar ($39.95; K.B. Toys; Additional game $7 each)

No, I haven't played the PS4 version, however I own The Pinball Arcade for Android and on Steam. FarSight, the company behind The Pinball Arcade, has lost the rights to see all Bally/Williams tables, but I already own this one so they can't take it away. Zen Studios, the company behind the Pinball FX series on Steam owns the rights to Bally/Williams tables now. They have been releasing them across several platforms, including Steam as DLC for Pinball FX3. The first table was, and still is, FREE. They have since released 3 Williams Table Packs as DLC (3 tables per packl $9.99 per pack). Pinball Arcade was charging that much per table!

Also, I go to Pinball Expos when I can and I have actually played this one, although it's tough to get on as it's popular. Elvira had a deal with Bally, which is why the two Elvira tables (the other being "Elvira and the Party Monsters") were made by Bally. Since then Bally and Midway merged together, then bought by Williams, who ceased making Pinball machines in 1999, the same year Sega sold their Pinball division to Gary Stern. Elvira herself announced that Stern is making a new Elvira table.

That looks like a good version of Centipede, but I noticed some differences between it and the 7800 version. The spider looks different for a start. Secondly, Easy Mode on the Colecovision runs at about the same speed that the 7800 version does in Standard. Novice Mode on the 7800 runs a little slower than this. And then I noticed that you earn an Extra Live every 10,000 points, where it's every 12,000 on the 7800.

Spitfire Attack; Atari 2600; Difficulty Setting: b/b.

Milton Bradley released 2 games for the 2600, both shooters. MB sold a gun (seen in last photo) that was made to be used for both games. I took the photo of it of a photo at Atari Mania. I suppose that they both work with a Joystick, as Spitfire Attack works with a Sega Genesis Game Pad.

I once saw a video of a Spectrum game (I think from Ocean) called Wimpy Burger, themed around a then fastfood place in England called Wimby Boy (I think). Anyway, at some point in the game it turns into BurgerTime.

Thanks for the vote Bamse. The 7800 is a great console, with PAL territories getting a much better controller than Americans. Be advised on two points though. 1) The RF signal is weak, and won't trigger most automatic TV/Game RF switch boxes. I don't even use a switch box in my set-up anyway. 2) The end of the Power Adapter that plugs into the 7800 is proprietary, meaning that only a 7800 Power Adapter will work, so make sure that the 7800 that you buy still has a working Power Adapter.

Centipede; Atari 7800; Difficulty: Novice.

The final photo shows two home brews that I received today from Good Deal Games. Both are for the 2600. Alien Attack is a vertical shooter. Alien Revenge! is a sequal, and plays very much like Cosmic Ark. You have to defend your base in space from attack from all sides. Neither is in the system here so I submitted requests for them. :)

My pleasure. You're either close to my age or you went to some arcades as a kid that kept games a long time. Periscope was a big hit. Big enough in fact to entice Gulf & Western, Paramount's parent company, to buy Sega. Gulf & Western had only owned Paramount for a short period of time when they bought both Sega and Desilu (formerly known as RKO Radio Pictures). It made sense as both studios were right next to each other, so they knocked down some walls and renamed Paramount Paramount Studios. Mel Brooks made fun of Gulf & Western in his film "Silent Movie." The plot has a company called Engulf & Devour buying up studios that were on hard times.

I think they sold Sega in the early 80s.

Chetiry: Sprint 25; Atari 2600; Difficulty Setting b/b.

Score improvement. :)

Chetiry is a very good home brew conversion of Tetris. When playing Sprint 25 you can select which level to play. This is displayed on the far-right of the scoreboard. With this game I played Level 7. With Sprint 25 you try to score as many points as possible while clearing 25 blocks (or as the manual describes them, 'Soviet Blocs.' The cartridge has internal Flash Memory, so it remembers scores. My previous best is in there somewhere.

I'm old. I remember playing this one in the arcades when it first came out. Then again I remember playing Sega's EM arcade hit Periscope back in the late 60s. If you've never played it it's very simular to the arcade game series Sea Wolf.

The 2600 has quite a few great games, plus a very active home brew scene. In fact, Atari Age alone releases more home brews than I can keep up with (try as I might), and they aren't the only ones release them.

Well done Bamse! I believe you made it to Level 7. I can't make it past Level 5.

I currently own a few repros for the 2600.

Alligator People (Prototype)
Demolition Herby (Custom Repro)
Turbo (Prototype)

Alligator People was finished by 20th Century Fox, so is unchanged. Demolition Herby was a custom repro. Atari Age dosen't alter the game program in any way on their custom repros. Turbo was an unfinished prototype by Sega. The cartridge includes that version, plus an enhanced/finished version with better graphics and sound, plus it was tweaked to make it more closely resemble the original Sega arcade game.

I have more Custom Repros coming from Atari Age, but I will, of course, be ordering more.

Gas Hog
River Patrol

I DO own more repros though for other systems, mostly of un-released protos. For example (partial list):

  • Airball (NES)
  • Escape from Atlantis (Color Dreams)
  • Mike Tyson's Intergalactic Power Punch (NES)
  • Penn & Teller's Smoke & Mirrors (Sega CD)
  • Sara Parker's Pool Challenge (NES)
  • Secret Ties (NES)
  • Sonic Edusoft (Sega Master System)

This table was just released on Steam a couple of days ago. There is also the original Devil Riders table (in the EM category) and a Devil Riders Retro table (r. 2017 I believe). Magic Pixel has fininished releasing everything EXCEPT the Remakes. There are 5 more to go, although someone on the development team said that there may be more Award tables to come.

Atari Age will create a Custom Reproduction of a home brew game, but they require you to link to permission from the game's creator to do so. So far one game designer has commented to one of my Atari Age Blog entries, and that's John W. Champeau of Champ Games, and I believe all of his games are still available at Atari Age.

  • Legit Rating (Overall): 97.5%
  • Top High Score Members; Current Month: Ranked 4th
  • Overall User Rank: 22nd
  • Top Users by First Trophies - Currently ranked 19th with 585
  • If you want to show the Administrators link, showing which systems are administered by who, here's the link for that. It should show me as the Primary for the Sega SG-1000 and Game Gear; Back-up for the Sega Mk. III / Master System: http://highscore.com/scoreboard/catadmins.php
  • Additionally, you could cover my Youtube channel as I covered yours. If you do please mention that I'm gearing-up for a channel overhaul. This will include a new web camera, our youngest daughter's expensive mic. She uses to record audtions for voice-over work. She was recently picked to voice a character in a home brew video game. At any rate that microphone was bought with the understanding that I could use it when needed. I also plan to record play videos.
  • You could also cover my Blog at Atari Age in your review http://atariage.com/forums/blog/760-cessnaaces-blog/

I'll quote RetroRob on this matter:

[The trophy cases are generally not publicly shown from black belt upwards! The reason being the vast amount of trophies accumulated by the most prolific users slowing the site down when they're all on public display. That's why this feature was removed. I remember I previously read this somewhere in the discussion area of this site!]

I've attained Master rank, so that explains that.

It could well be the HD TV that is in our bedroom, as it has problems with some PAL Sega Master System games that the HD TV we had in there before didn't have (quite noticeable on Xenon 2: Mega Blast). That set is now in the living room, because that's where the PlayStation 4 is. While it handled Composite SMS PAL games better than the newer one in our room, our bedroom set has built-in wi-fi and the old one doesn't (but the PS4 does, hence why it's in the living room).

I achieved an even higher score on Centipede (Novice) today, but I'll save posting it for after this one goes Legit. It will evenually, eventhough I have the same Troll that you do. What this being fails to realize is that all a score needs is 25 votes (YES or NO), and an average Legit of 75% on the score.

I think Astrosmash was one of several games that I had that I didn't get to play. My Intellivision died shortly after I got it, but as I'm sure you remember I had a rather decent number of games for it.

Thanks for the YES vote, as always.

I believe you said that, like me, you are planning to buy an Intellivision Amico when it comes out next year. Well, I'm also planning on buying a Sega Genesis Mini when it comes out. The awesome news is that Sega has pulled their liscensing agreement with AtGames, and are doing everything in-house. They seem to be doing everthing possible to make the Genesis Mini and Mega Drive Minis must-haves.

Oh. I just wanted to check and see if there's a patch available for this game. The new 2600 Home Brew Astronomer has a patch that can be earned, for a limited time.

I received an Invoice from Packrat Video Games for my Boxed Limited Edition of Astronomer, and also Explosive Diarrhea. They are supposed to ship in the next few days. I also heard from Al at Atari Age. All 5 of the orders that I've been waiting on will be shipped together this week. And, I just placed an order for two Home Brew shooters for the 2600 from Good Deal Games. Alien Attack and its sequel Alien Revenge! So alot of gaming goodness is heading my way. :)

Centipede; Atari 7800; Difficulty: Novice.

I achieved a better score today, and since someone voted no on my previous score I had little incentive to keep it up. So I removed it and posted this higher score.

I discovered something that I'm calling 'The Centipede Effect.' I recently bought a PAL exclusive for the 2600 called "Meteor Defense." It normally plays in black & white, but if I turn my 7800 off, remove the "Meteor Defense" cartridge, insert the 7800 cartridge of "Centipede" into the system, making sure to play it for an hour or so, then turning the console off, removing the "Centipede" cartridge from the console, then re-insert the "Meteor Defense" cartridge and turn the console back on, and the game then plays in color. I have no idea why this works, but it does.

Thanks Omar. I could have gone higher but you know how this game is. The moment you loose your last ship the game resets the score to 0 and starts playing by itself (and badly I might add), so I grabbed my Smart Phone with 3 lives left and just managed to grab two photos, one of which was blurry.

The ProLine controllers are often referred to by those that have used them as PainLine controllers for good reason. With this game it's not so bad, but it's a clumsy thing to use regardless of the pain. The Sega Genesis controllers are more comfortable, plus they are more responsive than the ProLines. Also, Genesis controllers are everwhere here. My ProLines are still like-new because I almost never use them.

Parachute; Atari 2600/Emulation

PAL Exclusive The Atari 2600 Rarity Guide doesn't have a rarity rating for this one (listed as 'undetermined'), but recent searches on eBay show but 2 copies for sale. One for $282.79 (seller in Spain), the other is listed at $339.41 (seller in Italy). Both are for the cartridge only. No box or manual. Strangely, the lower priced cartridge looks to be in the nicest condition. Someone who is both here and at Atari Age offered to look for any PAL games that I'm looling for. I assume (for me) to buy, and not to gift to me. laugh

This game is like River Patrol (another expensive game for the 2600), in that it has music throughout. I've seen a couple of play videos for this game, some in color, and some in black & white.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mLS1rOWZq-A

EMU7800 can't make up it's mind. Some screens display in color, some in black & white, and some it will display in color and in black & white, depending on the whim of either the game or the emulator. This is why I only review games that I own physical copies of. instead of having only played them via emulation. I am, of course, speaking of my Blog at Atari Age (lastnight I posted my 8th game review). I also started a new series called PAL Atari Log, where I report on NTSC compatibility with the PAL games that I own. Right now it's focusing on PAL games for the 2600.

Home Brew for the 7800. Like the classic memory game Simon, you must correctly repeat back the sequences in the proper order. I made it as high as 14 sequences.

So it starts off with 1 character (Snowman, Santa, Christmas Tree, or Reindeer) moving and making their sound. Then it adds a second. Then a third, etc. What am I doing? Everyone's played Simon, or some form of it. Actually, I surprised myself even getting this high. laugh

Last night I tried another game for the 7800. A shooter called Plutos (thankfully in the system here). When I searched the Atari Age Atari 7800 Rarity Guide I discovered that it is a prototype, so I'll have to look into ordering a Custom Reproduction.

It should be in the same place as yours is on your page. Just beneath you avitar image. It does, of course, show only the first few trophies. Click on the link that says more... which should be just beneath the first trophy, or in my case badge, as I have two Activision badges. This is unless a score is voted Legit before I can re-organize my case (I check daily to see if it needs doing). I keep it organized by Special first, followed by World, National, State, City, and First.

Oh, the game play. Each Level has 6 enemy Space Stations that you must destroy. There are 6 levels. Once you complete all 6 levels the game continues with level 1, etc. With this game I completed all 6 levels twice, then died during my third pass with level 1. So a minimum of 36 enemy stations destroyed. After you destroy all 6 stations on a level you earn an extra ship, but you can only have 6 ships. The one that you are playing with and 5 in reserve. So if you have 6 and then complete a level no extra ship for you.

Wasp!; Atari 7800/Emulation

This version of EMU7800 came pre-loaded with alot of 7800 home brews, including these four from Mark Ball. I can't speak for other control methods, but playing this game with an Xbox 360 Game Pad is a painful experience. The D-pad is too slugish, which leaves the Thumb-stick. That's were the pain comes in. I'd rather play this using a Sega Genesis controller, but don't own a physical copy of this game. It's a good game, I just can play it (well) currently.

I just started playing Planet Smashers tonight through emulation. I love this game, although I'm still learning how to play it myself. It has a rarity rating of 5, so I'm going to try and hunt down a cartridge of it. As you posted this 4 years ago you've probably looked at Atari Age's Rarity Guide for the 7800. It has scans of the manual.

Thanks Rob. I checked the Rarity Guide at Atari Age and the games from Tigervision range between 5 and 7 on the scale. Only River Patrol, at 9, goes above 7 on the scale. 5s to 7s should be doable as I recently scored a near mint (cartridge only) Demolition Herby, handle cartridge version. It's a 7. At any rate, here is the Tigervision page of the Rarity Guide:

TIPS:

  • Once you spot the worms near you you have three options. 1) Hug a side wall tightly. They can't get you there (but you can't trigger the appearance of Gas Stations if you stay there forever). 2) Speed up. If I'm near a wall I hug the wall and speed up slightly, keeping a close eye on the flickering image of the worms. Once I am past them I move away from the wall and give shooting them another try. I can usually pull off speeding past them without hugging a side wall unless they are too close. 3) Shoot the Gas Station. It will restart the wave, hoever it will also destroy all of the blocks on the playfield.
  • Shoot every block in sight, as long as you have time to speed up enough to fill up on the maxium amount of Gas allowable. 1 unit to 12 units. The faster you move thru the Gas Station, the more fuel you get (up to the maximum of 12 units). But this requires some judgement. It depends on how many block are on screen, how much fuel you need, and how boxed in you are by the blocks (and the worms of course). It makes no sense to rush into a Gas Station at top speed when I have enough fuel onboard and there are blocks too shoot. So I don't rush it unless I have to. Those blocks may only be worth 5 points each, but it adds up when you have a screen full of them to shoot.
  • You don't technically have to enter a Gas Station to receive fuel from it. Say what? Mearly glancing it is enough. So if you've cleared out a row of blocks, but still can't enter the Gas Station through the entrance, I speed up and give it a slight nick to the side (hey, it's even in the manual). 
  • If you feel yourself getting nausous playing Game 3, then STOP!

Worm War I: Game 1; Atari 2600/Emulation; Difficulty Setting: b/b.

I played this variation several times lastnight. After achieving this new best score I played it several times today with the actual cartridge on my 7800. I've made a breakthru it seems.

This variation is not for those who are made nasous or suffer from seizers due to constant flashing. In this variation the screen flashes at a regular rate, with the worms only visiable at those times, and even then the worms appear black, the same color as the playfield.

River Patrol; Atari 2600/Emulation; Difficulty Switches: b/b.

Port of the arcade game of the same name. This game is quite rare (Rarity Rating 9 = Extremely Rare), so I've ordered a Custom Reproduction from Atari Age. The manual scan at Atari Age makes no mention of the Difficulty Switches, so I assume the A/Expert category is in the system erroniously. 

This game is unusual for a 2600/VCS game of the era in that it has music throughout.

But wouldn't a PAL console output a PAL signal? I am feeding the RF output of the 7800 to an RF input on an old VCR, then taking the composite output of the VCR and sending that signal to a composit switcher, which feeds the HD TV. Not the best solution perhaps, but it works. The problem is that the VCR, like the 7800, is NTSC. Then there's the difference in power requirements. A PAL console would most likely require between 220-240 volts. A power converter would solve that problem of course.

I am mearly the Administrator for game requests for the Sega 8-bit family of systems (Sega SG-1000, Sega Master System, Sega Game Gear). So if someone requests a game for one of those systems, I process the request by either adding it to the database, sending it back to the person who made the request for clarification, or outright rejecting it. I've never had to do the latter. I usually process all requests winthin' 12 to 24 hours of them being made.

You might try S.BAZ. He's a top Administrator here. However I'm not sure he can do anything about it either. That would probably have to be handled by the site's owner, Serious. However he's hard to get hold of these days.

Ok, my 2-in-1 arrived today from Germany. It is labeled as a 2 PAK SPECIAL. The games on it are Planet Patrol / Wall Defender. It runs but in black & white. I already own the U.S. release of Planet Patrol, but I'm still missing the U.S. release of Wall Defender. I primarily ordered this cart to see how my set-up handles PAL carts. I've seen a play video on the site here for a PAL game where the user who posted it lives in the U.S. In that case the picture had a vertical rolling bar, but was otherwise fine. I believe the game was Meteor Defense (a PAL exclusive).

Cool site, Atari Compendium. Lists High Scores and their achievers for most Atari 2600 games, including prototypes and home brews (including some I've requested be added here). They list a World Record for this game (Game I: B/Novice) of slightly over a million points. Something to aim for I guess. I tracked the score back to Twin Galaxies.

I can already beat their posted score for Demolition Herby, however they fail to list which game was played (Game 1, Game 2, or Game 3), nor is their a link to a screenshot or playvideo.

Worm War I: Game I; Difficulty Setting: b/b.

I still have my work cut out for me. The current High Score for Worm War I is listed at Atari Compednium is 1,003,525. This site appears to cull together High Score achieved for the Atari 2600/VCS from High Score; Twin Galaxies, and it appear the Atari Age High Score Club. Our very own nads and S.BAZ are listed there.

http://www.ataricompendium.com/game_library/high_scores/high_scores.html

The link attached to the score for Worm War I leads to Twin Galaxies if you're at all curious. While Atari Compednium doesn't specify the Difficulty Setting, Twin Galaxies does. Game 1; Dificulty b/Novice. That still leaves out the Right Difficulty Switch, or perhaps Twin Galaxies lumps b scores in with b/b, as we do here.

I was stunned myself. The last time I performed a search for Demolition Herby the prices ranged from between $50 to $75 for a loose cart, and the carts were in terriable condition.

Ok, after further research I found mention of one of our users accused of using "save states" and of editing their videos (I tried to use a gender neutral pronoun; went with 'their'). If so it would explain some truely amazing scores. I even subscribe to their Youtube channel and exchanged a few messages with them at Atari Age.

The site I found lists known World Records, and their status. At the bottom was a list of suspected offenders, where I found this person listed. I found it interesting that they don't consider a PAL game and an NSTC game to be inter-changable. I've always indicated that I played a PAL ROM with my emulator on the rare occassions that I've done so. In fact only once with a game not a PAL Exclusive, and that's Spectravision's Planet Patrol. EMU7800 runs the NTSC version glitchy, so I had to import the PAL version into it. I mentioned it at the time. It's a game that I happen to own on cartridge (NTSC).

I also found it interesting that they don't consider pausing a game to be problematic. There are some games that have a built-in pause feature. Demolition Herby and Squeeze Box for example. Both pause at the start of a new level. You have to hit the Fire button to start that level. And of course many emulators, like EMU7800, have a pause feature.

@ZilchSr:

I post alot of scores for the 2600, some via emulation (always clearly identified as such), and some on actual Atari hardware (usually my 7800 ProSystem). I don't have nearly the collection that you do, so I have to rely on emulation for some games. The only emulator that I use is EMU7800, which emulates games for both the 2600 and the 7800 (obviously). WIth games played on my 7800, I generally use a Sega 3-button controller. It's hardware compatible and alot easier on my hands. With EMU7800 I use to use a keyboard, but now only use a Logitech Xbox 360 controller. I'm quite up-front about this.

Tonight I found a really nice looking Demolition Herby handle cartridge w/color label. It looks legit to me, so I've purchased it.

I just performed the same Google search that you did, and the same name kept cropping up (as did the Activision game "Dragster"). I already knew that this person had been exposed as a cheater. I don't know what Username they used, or if they were ever here, but I hope that they are no longer here. We don't need the kind of negative press that Twin Galxies has received.

@nads:

Thanks nads. You are the 2600 champ I hear. :)

To get a score this high requires playing it for many hours. Unlike Space Jockey, which I play conservatively, I play Demolition Herby: Game 1 very aggressively. In other words, I do alot of ramming. That earns points faster, and you can complete each round faster, because if you manage to bump all of the other cars off the track you can lay down red paint while in turbo. Of course ramming is what did me in (either that or I was too tired and my timing was off). In Game 1 I ONLY use turbo when all of the other vehicles are off the grid. For one thing it uses alot of fuel.

Thanks Bamse. Of course I do play games in the more difficulty settings. I've recently had most of my scores still up for a vote given 1, and sometimes 2 no votes. One because there is no play video, and the second no reason given at all.

You know me. I usually will skip voting on a score with poor or questionable evidence, but I will tell the submitter the reason(s) why. I only vote no outright if it is a case of rick-rolling, or I've given the submitter amble requests for better evidence and have been ignored, with them continuing to post no proof that they are the one who actually achieved the score.

I rarely require a play video of someone, but I do take my role as an Administrator seriously.

If you want to play Demolition Herby there are three options.

  • Buy a used cartridge on eBay. I just checked and there are several loose cartridges for $25 to $60. I went ahead and bought a really nice looking U.S. cartridge (handle cartridge with color label) for $25 including FREE shipping.

https://www.ebay.com/sch/i.html?_from=R40&_trksid=m570.l1313&_nkw=Demolition+Herby&_sacat=1249

  • Buy a Custom Reproduction from Atari Age. $25 for the cartridge but doesn't include shipping. I had one made for me which is what I own now. At the time I couldn't find any actual Telesys Demolition Herby carts for sale on eBay for less than $75,
  • Download the ROM from either Atari Age or Atari Mania and import it into your emulator of choice.

The 7800 has a pause feature, but only for the games that support it. With games for the 2600 they have to be programmed to use it. A few do (home brews). This game is like Squeeze Box (also for the 2600) in that it pauses before each round. You have to hit the Fire button to start the next round (or level). I did take a break to eat, but that was it. 7 1/2 hours was how much play time it took. I was tired though as you can probably tell from the sound of my voice. If someone requires a play video for this they're nuts. My phone can only record videos of no more than 15 minutes, due to all of the evidence photos for requested games that haven't been processed yet (i.e. added). No way can I record for over 7 hours!

The SMS port awards points for taking out the enemy craft, such as the tanks. It's the only port that I've tried that lets you save some rescued prisoners after your helicopter has been hit. You have to be fast, but if you repeatedly hit the left button (as I remember it. It might be the right button) as the helicopter falls to the ground some of them will parachute out and can be rescued later.

Demolition Herby: Game 1: Difficulty: B/Novice.

This game took 7.5 hours to play. 

If you're curious, as I was, this handily beats the World Record posted at Twin Galaxies for Demolition Herby; Game 1; B/Novice.

https://www.twingalaxies.com/showthread.php/168067-atari-2600-vcs-demolition-herby-ntsc-game-1-difficulty-b-6-062-john-mcallister

Game 1 is the default game. Game 2 is harder (but not in the system here), and Game 3 is hardest of all (it IS in the system here).

Yes, it's a PAL exclusive. Many PAL games run fine on my emulator, and in color. The only other PAL exclusive to give my emulator problems is Acid Drop. I've bought some PAL 2600 games on eBay (including this one) to see if they will run on my NTSC 7800. On the one hand the TV is HD, so it may not care. However, I'm using an old VHS VCR as a pass-through device, and it might care. I'll just have to wait and see.

Tapeworm: Game 1; Atari 2600; Difficulty Setting: A/A.

I just got this game the other day. Quite fun, until you get to Stage 3, where the screen goes dark until you eat a bean. It then is lit again, but for about a second (until you eat the next bean). I've found that if you hit the Fire button it lights up the screen (also for about a second). Doing it more than a few times costs you a life though.

Oh, I've posted my first new video on Youtube in years to my cessnaace channel. :)

I've never played any of those on the Intellivision. I have played Pitfall on the 2600. Oh, tonight I posted a score for Tapeworm for the 2600. I just got that game today. Anywho, no one has voted on it yet (HINT). The only snake like games that I owned already are both home brews. Worms! for the 7800, and NESnake 2 for the NES (kinda obvious from the title which system it's for). I bought it from RetroUSB. Unfornuately the original NESnake has been discontinued. Were there snake type games released for the Intellivision?

My pleasure. I've never actually run into this game before. It would be more understandable if this had been released by a Japanase company, as they've released so many obscure arcade games. But this was released by Bally/Midway, an American company, yet I've never run into it in arcades or even at expos.

Well, I like the 2600 version. Although I don't think that I've ever actually played the Intellivision version. It's been so long now since I had an Intellivision that I really don't remember if I even owned it are not. I know that the Intellivision Amico will have 'reimagined' games from some companies, one of which is Activision. Activision has owned the Imagic game library since the late 90s. I'm personally hoping for versions of Demon Attack (Imagic) and River Raid (Activision).

Tapeworm; Atari 2600; Difficulty Setting: b/b.

This was one of 3 games that arrived today from sellers on eBay. I'm still waiting on a 2-in-1 that I ordered from a seller in Germany. I hope that it will work being that it is PAL and my console is NTSC. I'm also awaiting on several orders from Atari Age and Pack Rat Video Games. In the meantime, I was in such a hurry trying them out that when I got to Tapeworm (and got hooked on it) I went and forgot to take a photo showing the face label and the difficulty settings. I didn't even know that this game used any, but the console was set for b/b.

I'll have to download and import the ROM .bin file into my emulator. I generally don't like the Worm style of games. I guess that's why I've only bought two Worm style homebrews. lol. I own Worms! for the 7800 and NESnake 2 for the NES.

The Byte Before Christmas: Naughty List; Atari 2600

Notes: Played on my Atari 7800 ProSystem (hardware compatible with games for the 2600). I was surprised that only Bell Hopper and Naughty List were in the system here, so I've submitted a request for Santa's Scabs. I was set to submit a score for it. Oh well. In the meantime I will (hopefully) improve.

The Byte Before Christmas was Atari Age's Holiday Cart for 2011. I've just posted my review for Naughty List within' my Blog at Atari Age.

Thanks Bamse! I'm dying to make a video playing this game, because I've watched so many videos where the players don't seem aware of how to maximize points while playing it. I put some tips in my review of Worm War I within' my cessnaace blog at Atari Age.

Tonight I posted my 5th Atari 2600 Game Review. A homebrew title this time. I started the blog on March 21st, and have already posted 9 entries with a total of 595 views. I think that's pretty good considering that I basically just starting this blog. I have 2 series going within' my blog. Game Reviews (currently focusing on the 2600) and Feeding My Atari (covering recent game adds for my Atari systems). I've got more games coming. In fact several should arrive as soon as tommorow. So Feeding My Atari #3 should be my next entry. :)

Notes: I knew that my wife was behind me. I also knew that she had picked up my smart phone. What I didn't know was that she was preparing to take a photo of me. It was fairly late in the same, so I already had over 200,000 points at that point.

Notes: I achieved this score tonight. My previous best b/b score for this game was still being voted on (just 2 votes to go) but I just removed it so that I could post this score. This score is over twice as high, so I'm rather pleased with myself.

I've reviewed this game in my Atari Age Blog (Game Review #3). As I believe I mentioned in my review I play this game alot. So it's good to be making progress. :)

I own Choplifter for both the 7800 and the SMS. The SMS version is by far the better version. I have no idea how the Intellivision port plays, but the 7800 port only has the first stage, where the SMS version has them all. Plus I can usually save a few people when my chopper is hit by having them parachute out. I've never been able to do that with the 7800 version.

The second series is simply called Game Reviews. I am currently rating and ranking games that I own for the Atari 2600. I've done 3 so far (one each night). The games covered so far are Demolition Herby, Alligator People, and Worm War I.

Demolition Herby; Game 1; Atari 2600

I know I just submitted a score for this game, but I've just removed it because this score in approx. twice as high.

Game 1 is the easiest. Game 2 is harder than Game 1. Game 3 is very difficult. Only Game 3 has it's own entry here at High Score. Usually Game 1 is the default for a game. I don't know why Game 2 isn't in the system. I checked several scores already voted legit here and no mention was made as to if they played Game 1 or 2. 

This game is quite rare. With a standard cartridge w/ a black & white face label this game has a rarity rating at Atari Age of 6 (Rare+). With a handle cartridge w/ color label it is a 7 (Very Rare). This cartridge is neither. It is a Custom Reproduction that I ordered from Atari Age. I didn't sepecify which label to use but glad that they didn't use the black & whilte label, as they didn't print "Reproduction Cartridge" anywhere. Just know that if anyone offers a cartridge for sale on eBay or elsewhere with the game in a standard cartridge but with a color label it should automatically be considered a Reproduction.

Maybe so, but it looks interesting. If anyone could pull off porting it to the 2600, it would be Champ Games. They've already released, thru Atari Age, Caverns of Mars (own it), Lady Bug (wishlisted), Scramble (wishlisted), Super Cobra Arcade (own it), and Mappy (own it). They are about to release Wizard of Wor Arcade (looking forward to it). Their games look like they are played on a far more powerful system than the 2600, but that seems to be their console of choice. Mappy has 99 rounds (levels), and music throughout. An amazing port.

Demolition Herby; Atari 2600.

Sorry for the poor lighting. My 7800 (hardware compatible with games for the 2600) is in our bedroom, and my wife went to bed while I was playing, so all lights were off. I can make out Mark (MSH) in the second photo though.

This is the first Custom Reproduction Cartridge that I've ordered from Atari Age. I've already got two more coming.

If you are curious, I've posted my first game review within' my blog at Atari Age, and this is the game that I chose to review. I tried to mention High Score within' the review as much as I could. I included some play videos in the review, both for this game and for various other Amidar style games (not Spiderdroid though, as everyone knows that game). Hopefully no one will mind that I used their video.

Ok, after you finish laughing at my pitiful score please vote yes. 

I received 7 games today. While I proved to be lousy at Flappy I proved to be good at Galactopus. It's not in the system here so I've submitted requests for it, with all 4 difficulty options. b/b; b/A; A/b; A/A. Galactopus makes me think of Name This Game. I wonder why. :)

Astrowar; Atari 2600/Emulation; Difficulty Switches: b/b.

This game plays like a vertical Meteor Defense, except this is harder for some reason. I did manage to get up to 11 Extra bases (lives) at one point, with a score that was over 5,000 points. But this game subtracts quite abit off the score whenever you let something thru. Meteor Defense does too, but it's not as noticable until you get well over 50,000 points. With Astrowar you notice it right away.

Hopefully the XEGS has better build quality than the 5200. I have a friend in England with 3 and he was kind of asking me if I wanted one. It would probably be PAL, requiring 220-240 volts. I'm not even sure a 5200 would survive the trip from the U.K. to the U.S. I hear that they are rather fragile. I've had my 7800 for over 25 years and it's a survivor. Of course I take care of it. 

My wife thinks it's funny that I pronounce XEGS X eggs.

It could well be that you lose points in Meteor Defense whenever UFOs slip past you, but then once you get anywhere near 100,000 points the game starts throwing UFOs at you, especially once one slips past you (which costs a life). I've had as many as 20 extra lives and lost 10 or more in short order because the game is throwing UFOs at the top, bottom, and center of the screen at the same time. The ship you fly isn't anywhere near fast enough for that.

Unforunately, there is no manual scan that I can find. I checked both Atari Age and Atari Mania, looking under every known title for this game. While there are cartridge scans, box scans, ad scans, and catalog scans (especially at Atari Mania) there is no manual scan available.

Every time I see your XEGS in a photo it reminds me how much I want one. My wife probably would draw the line at another console since we have over 30. She DID ok the PlayStation 3, and the PlayStation 4, but they were actually bought for our daughters. Now my wife did shock me once when she called to ask me if it was ok for her to buy a wii. Like I'd say no to a games console.

This is the hardest possible game type for Plaque Attack. The manual indicates that Game 1 is for Advanced players, while Game 3 is for Beginners.

http://www.atarimania.com/game-atari-2600-vcs-plaque-attack_7755.html

Game 3 is not in the system for the 2600, yet Game 3B IS in the system for this game for various Activision compilations for iOS, Android, GBA, PSP, etc. I've requested Game 3B be added for the 2600, but as it is my requests are backed up a mile, so there's no telling when it will be added.

No, I don't have deep pockets. I did find 1 copy on eBay going for hundreds of dollars. I checked the Atari 2600 Rarity Guide at Atari Age, and it turns out that it has a rarity rating of R9 (Extremely Rare). So, I ordered a custom reproduction from Atari Age. With my Atari Age Annual Subscriber discount (5% off) it is costing me barely over $20. They are still working on my previous custom repro, Demolition Herby. Plus I ordered another boxed homebrew for the 2600, Draconian. I currently have 5 orders being processed at Atari Age, and 2 at Packrat Video Games. I could NOT pass on any game called Explosive Diarrhea, although I actually went to Packrat's site to order Astronomer, which I did).

As I mentioned in my Insane or Crazy post in the forums, I broke down and bought a copy of Wall Defender on eBay. As the NTSC release has a rarity rating if R9 (Extremely Rare) and so the few copies that come up are hundreds of dollars, I bought a 2-in-1 PAL cartridge from a seller in Germany. The other game on the cartridge is Planet Patrol, which I already own the NTSC release of.  This PAL 2-in-1 was a bargin, so I took a chance that it will work on my NTSC 7800 ProSystem.

Last week I had Atari Age begin making me a custom reproduction of Demolition Herby (R6/R7 (depends on the cartridge style). Tonight I ordered a custom reproduction of River Patrol (a port of the arcade game of the same name), another 2600 game with an R9 rarity rating. These custom repros barely cost over $20 each after my Atari Age subscriber discount. So, if the PAL Wall Defender doesn't run on my system I guess I'll have to make it the next custom 2600 reproduction that I order.

This is a port of an arcade game, and I like it. I'm going to have to hunt down a copy of this one. And if I'm going to play King Kong (from the same company) I'll have to buy a copy of it as well as the ROM .bin file fails to import into EMU7800. I don't know what the issue is. Eventhough Tigervision payed a lisencing fee to Universal Studios it was later proven in court that Universal didn't even own a copyright on the 'character' (Universal vs. Nintendo).

Wall Defender; Atari 2600/Emulation

Notes: I've watched several play videos of this game and this game isn't running correctly for me. In every play video that I've seen after the screen flashes several times a wall is lost. It can then be regained if you play well with the remaining walls. Not with me it doesn't. The screen flashes several times, and it's then game over! I had imported the .bin file from Atari Mania. I then deleted it and imported the .bin file from Atari Age. Same issue. So either I'm doing something wrong, or my emulator doesn't handle this game properly. I'm going to have to buy a copy on cartridge I think.

Secondly, I read through the manual scan and no mention is made of the difficulty switches. I played a few games with both set for A. No difference.

No problem, although I left one out. Purely an oversight, as I've ordered from them as well:

Songbird Productions sells homebrew / after-market games for the Atari Jaguar/Jaguar CD, and the Lynx. In fact they currently have a limited number of copies of the Lynx after-market release Zaku ($70 dollars though). It was originally available from Super Fighter Team (for less, which is where I bought my copy), but has since been discontinued.

My pleasure. Glad to see that someone is making new games for the Intellivision. I buy quite a large number of homebrew / after-market releases, and deal with the following sources for such games:

Atari Age releases new games for the 2600, 5200, 7800, Atari 8-bit Computers, Lynx, Jaguar/Jaguar CD, and the ColecoVision.

Packrat Video Games releases new games for the 2600, the Odyssey 2 / Videopac, and the Vectrex.

RetroUSB is a good souce for NES homebrews.

Sega Power is a great source for Master System homebrews (Game Gear and SG-1000 too). Most of the games there are available for download. 

Super Fighter Team provides after-market releases for the Sega Genesis/Mega Drive, SNES / Super Famicom, and the Lynx (plus games for DOS/Windows, Android, etc.).

Red Spot Games is a good source for after-market releases for the Dreamcast. They are based in Germany and have produced some excellent Dreamcast games.

[Anyone else here who has read all this and knows of another source for after-market / homebrew / hacks, etc. then please let me know].

They can get the 2600 to do some amazing things. Mappy even uses MIDI files for the music. I never thought that I'd see MIDI files used on an Atari 2600 game.

Gas Hog; Atari 2600/Emulation; Difficulty Setting: Expert/A. Both Difficulty Switches set for A..

I'm not totally sure the difficulty switches make a difference. The game seemed to be running slightly faster in A/A, but I can't be sure. I went onto Atari Mania's website and read through their scan of the manual. It makes no mention of the difficulty switches at all. I did find that this game was released under other names in PAL territories:

  • Black Pirate
  • Pirate Negro
  • Piraten Schiff
  • Space Trip

Weird game. You drive on two levels. You drive forwards on the upper level and backwards on the lower level. It took me a couple of tries before I got use to it (kind of).

Thunderground; Atari 2600/Emulation.

This is a port of the Sega arcade game Borderline. I own a copy of the Sega SG-1000 port. I posted a score for it some time ago.

Try Super Cobra Arcade for the 2600. It was recently published by Atari Age, developed by Champ Games. It's the best port that I've played of the arcade original (never played the Intellivision version though).

This setting makes you a much larger target. This is exactly what one of the power-downs does in the 2600 homebrew Space Game.

I spent hours trying to beat my High Score on Pepsie Invaders / Coke Wins. I finally gave up and switched to Space Invaders.

With the way prices of retro games keep rising I wouldn't wait too long. I want a copt of Tapper for the 2600 but it's too expensive for me.
