Everyone Knows That Owning a Copy of Air Raid is Every 2600 Collectors Dream!

 

Vidiot Games is checking interest in producing reproduction Air Raid Cartridges. They will obviously be Atari black carts because of the cost involved in making Air Raid Shells. It will have new (and better looking IMO) Art work! Our First Run will be 20 Cartridges. Go ahead and throw any questions at us if you would like. Message us if you would like to reserve a copy and you will be put on the list.

 

 

Thanks

 

The Vidiot Games Team!!

$30 for a loose cart, plus shipping? I'll sell anyone a high-quality reproduction for $20 plus $3 for shipping in the US, with the game shipped in a box. I spent some time to clean up the box artwork and used that as the basis for the label:

Don't confuse "game shipped in a box" with "boxed game" as in "CIB = Complete In Box."

Yes, I updated my post to say "game shipped in a box" so that would be clearer. :)

I assumed by the "Air Raid shells" mentioned in the first post that Vidiot Games meant actual T handle replicas.

 

Vidiot Games - Can you confirm?

He made it pretty clear in the first post they will be regular, black Atari shells,

"They will obviously be Atari black carts because of the cost involved in making Air Raid Shells."

Yep you're right.  I read it too quickly and it seems my wishful thinking read what I wanted to read.   :(  Thanks for pointing that out.

 

Sadly that removes me from the list...I only wanted it when I thought it had a T handle.

I'd take one if you can repo the t-handle case.

I think it is fair to say at this point Al has the Air Raid reproductions cornered, so we will not be moving forward with this. We have some other (more unique) reproduction projects under development however, so we will post when those are a little further along.
