Video Game Reviews

This.
 
This is what happens, when you don't review any games for over six years.

This is going to take some time. Your patience will be appreciated.

So these games would be removed from AtariAge if no one writes reviews?

Well, get crackin' man!  There aren't enough Atari homebrew reviews out there!

I'm looking forward to your review comparing the two versions of Starcastle!

Uh oh - I'm nervous...  I see 12 of my games in there, plus one that I did the sound on... Do you take bribes?  :D

At the moment, I'm still sorting through the order that I'll be reviewing them all. :roll:

Yes. Unfortunately, they don't impact the final review in any way. But I do take them. ;)

I'm splitting them up (roughly) into categories, so I don't have more than three or four games at a time. Even then, some categories will require multiple parts.

I write reviews only when I have the time and interest in playing the games sufficiently enough to properly review them. At the moment, I have neither.

Sorry, I should have added a icon_smile.gif.

Take all the time you need.

While you are at it, maybe you could have a look at the latest trackball hacks too. And because your store review of Marble Craze criticized some valid points, I tried to address some issues in my new trackball hack of Marble Craze with beginner's difficulty.

 

Before we put them on carts, it would be cool if you could check those (small) fixes. And maybe suggest further improvements.

I've been swamped over the last month, but may have some time in the coming weeks to dust off the 2600. I've ordered capacitor and voltage regulator kits, since I've got a weird issue that every time I press the fire button, the screen darkens. Plus, I'm still hoping to resurrect my original 2600 motherboard (the "repair" actually was a motherboard swap with a replacement from Best Electronics). So I'm hoping this will get my original one working again, and fix the darkening issue on the Best board (which I have other plans for... :ponder: ). Plus I'll fix up my four-switchers while I'm at it.

 

It'll be interesting to see if Marble Craze is playable now. I thought it was painfully un-fun when I originally played it. I might have plugged it in once since then.
