Salvo, update #3. challenge accepted, humanoid saved

Posted by RevEng in dragging through the retro streets at dawn, 26 July 2014 · 11 views

For a while my time has been occupied with work and 7800basic updates, but in recently days I've managed to squeeze in some Salvo updates.

Gameplay additions include:
Humanoids to save. The enemies shots don't kill the humanoids, but if the enemies touch the humanoid it will die. By running over the humanoid he'll follow you for the rest of the level, so...

Wordmaster

Posted by atari2600land in atari2600land's Blog, 25 July 2014 · 46 views

Something I am not. Apparently. It's a DS game a lot like Jumble, but there's no cartoon and no hidden message, just words to unscramble with a hint. Sometimes the hint is awful. (i.e. "Politics" as the clue and "leaper" is the word. What?! Another odd one was the clue was "Health" and the word was "health.") I am not a word master because I didn't know a...

Moon Patrol

Posted by --- Ω --- in TI-99/4A Stuff, 25 July 2014 · 102 views

Moon Patrol MOON PATROL for the TI-99/4A is one of my all-time favorite games for the unit .
 
This is one of those classic games that one can 'zone-out' on when they have a few free moments to enjoy their Classic Computer hobby.
 
I like especially like these old games because you do not need to sit down and study a 2 inch book for a week to learn how to...

Centerset Bathroom Faucet Installed

Posted by Random Terrain in Random Terrain's Tetraternarium, 23 July 2014 · 49 views

I've wanted to have a centerset bathroom faucet for a long time, similar to the kind my family has had in our kitchens for decades, but it was always low on the list of things to buy. Well, the faucet in my bathroom has been dripping hot water for a while, so I just got a centerset bathroom faucet installed today. No more dripping and no more knobs. I can...

DIRPRINT.ACC - Print Disk directories from desktop

Diamond

This is the last accessory from the ones written pre-2000.  I was hoping that by this time I would have remembered how they had been created. Looks like the learning curve will start from the beginning again. It should take me about 10 min. to go over vast amount of literature about programming Diamond accessories.

Snowpiercer (?) - Spoiler-free review

Posted by Nathan Strum in (Insert stupid Blog name here), 22 July 2014 · 130 views
Movies

Yeah... I'd never heard of Snowpiercer before, either. This despite it having a fairly-star-studded cast including Chris Evans (Captain America), John Hurt and Ed Harris.

I think  this film is the reason for a bit of Avengers trivia. In The Avengers' shwarma end-credits scene, Evans is hiding his face with his hand. The reason being, he had grown a...

ATARI BLAST! demo July 2014

Posted by Paul Lay in Paul Lay's Blog, 18 July 2014 · 440 views


 
Since the last demo the enemy missiles are now multiplexed so there are more of them on screen but the main change is the addition of interaction with the background. There are currently 3 types of land objects:
Blocks - block your missiles and cannot be destroyed
Targets - block your missiles but are destro...

Here's my take on 20th Centrury Fox' Fall Guy (formerly known as Squish 'Em from Sirius Software). The label art was displayed on a promotional flyer, a bin is yet to be found.

After a longoff, back with another episode of 1.21GoG and today we are going to look at the five Mega Man games that came out on the Nintendo Gameboy and for amusement, the games are in their original green monochrome for realness purposes. Much like my mother Ice Queen X(treme)/Ice T. Gressa played Ninja Gaiden 3 in the previous episode as a special gues...

What I've been up to

Posted by mos6507 in mos6507's Blog, 24 June 2014 · 137 views

I hesitate to post a blog entry but I know a few people here have some interest in knowing what's going on in my life beyond classic gaming, so I'll offer this update.
 
Last summer I freaked out because Xtranormal went out of business and I thought that was my E-ticket ride to a career-change.  Well, here we are entering the following summer, a...

Divide by 40, Mod 40

I wrote a few routines, but this one really sticks out as a neat idea.;Divide by and Mod 40 combined;38 bytes, 45 cycles;Y = value to be dividedInterlacedMultiplyByFortyTable: lda #0 ; dummy load, #0 used in LUT l...

[#018] in Edgewater Mall (Biloxi, Mississipi) there is an awesome used game store called Just 4 Play that had bin full of PS1 games, individually priced from $6.95 and up. the highest price i found in the bin was for $29.95. There was a 3 for $10 deal on anything priced under $10. I ended up buying six games; Baldies, Blast Radius, Grid Runner, Pong, Robo...

First playable demo of "Ninja"

Posted by BioForceApe in Bio's Blog of Randomness, 09 June 2014 · 143 views

A lot of school time has passed through me in this month, so it took me really long to adapt ramcharmap to 16px after figuring out that there is no such thing as a playfield in the 7800. Other than that, little Ninja hasn't yet  received weapons, but he can walk on a 12-lined playfield now. Oh, I forgot that his sprites are totally gli...

Sharing a post I made to Livejournal just to potentially get more responses. I'm mostly just looking for suggestions and opinions at this stage, I'll be doing my own research throughout the summer anyway before I start trying to buy components likely 1/month.
