Is this just an announcement or a pre-order  ?I am in for 3 copies NTSC, and 3 copies CBS if available.  Lowest numbers if numbered.

I sure hope the serial number game has run its course, to be honest. Is a sticker with a different number worth more? :P

 

Showing my ignorance... is the title a reference to another ... more widely recognized game?

A quick google search on 4XV shows that is the name for a Yamaha bike.  Only connection I can see is the game programmer likes that bike (maybe)!

Wow, looks fun.  Over/under on the number of posts treating this announcement thread as a pre-order thread is 50.... :D

Looks promising, but I'm glad it's not happening for a while.  I need to do other Intellivision stuff for a while.  Like many have said before, I can't believe I'm complaining about too much new stuff coming out, but it's a lot to take in.  Ahem, Rev.  I said, "I can't believe I'm complaining about too much new stuff coming out, but it's a lot to take in!"   :rolling:

Looking very much forward to this game. This seems like a phantastic release. Can't wait, Winter 2015/2015 is NOT an option  ;)

Looks boring, hopefully it gets huge graphical improvements. Honestly, I get the feeling, that the average quality of homebrews sinks. Its really time for a new DZ Jay game, he seems to see more than just fast money in this community. Well, maybe I will be surprised, but I cant feel very happy with tons of game which seem to be okay, but not more.

I'm not with you on this opinion. I smell great playability and addictivity. Also, when winter 2014 is set for a release, we both know that this preview won't possibly be the final word on graphical issues.

Will follow thread and support when available. I'm also glad not ready for a while - too much product at once gets really expensive. Good luck with game.

I'll definitely be in for a copy when the game is finished.  I'm surprised by the ship sprite being identical (?) to the 2600 version of Asteroids.  While that sprite is decently iconic, I never thought it was all that great.

It's a CollectorVision ''in-house'' programmer :)

Winter of 2015? At least from the animated GIF it looks like it's missing some game-play elements, like enemies or additional challenges, for instance. This would make sense if still has over a year of development to go.

I do question, however, why it's being announced with such furor this early, if indeed we won't see how it will actually look or play until much later. There are already plenty of announced "coming soon" games this year. Oh well.

Good luck, though, it looks like it has potential. :)
