Been playing a lot of Missile Command, Pac-Man (Yes THAT Pac-Man! Lol!), Alien and Solar Fox. I've been trying to break 2,000 points on Pac-Man, and it hasn't been coming very easily. Just achieved a personal best on Alien, though. 40,748 points. Prior to that game, I don't think I've ever even made it to the 6th maze. Must have gotten lucky!

Just recently dusted off the ol' Heavy Sixer because I had a hankering to play the homebrew Raster Fahndung. It is so difficult!

Don't you just love the laser cannon of DOOOOM!!? Fairly addicting game that brings back great memories of when I was a kid!

My 5 year old son has been playing 2600 pacman lately which in turn makes me play it too, however I've never had a problem with 2600 pacman. I like it for what it is, and regardless of accuracy, it's still fun. To my son, pacman is pacman so he enjoys it, and he also likes the arcade (my dad has the cab), just as I did at his age.

 

Here is a pic of him playing, I couldn't resist taking a picture.

Very inspiring to see the next generation of gamers playing something other than an iPad game!
 

After reading this brilliant post: http://atariage.com/...ames/?p=2962334

I've been playing a lot of Star Ship.  What an awesome reminder that our own imagination is often what makes the game.

 

Other much-played titles of late: Night Driver, Superman, ET and Slot Machine.  For a while I was playing Home Run, until I came within one out of a perfect game.  I allowed a weird-angled hit that I managed to field, but was just a hair late tagging first. Man, did that HURT.

Glad to know I'm not the only one.  I have even tried the children's level in Super Breakout, where the ball doesn't speed up, and I still fail.  Once the ball starts going at those forced bizarre angles, I'm toast.

Tutankham, it's a fun little game. I just recently got it in a lot off eBay and hadn't played it before.

Action Man: Action Force. It's one of those games that become really enjoyable once you master the controls and weird physics. I also enjoy shooting the cobra's and watching them explode, which looks very violent for 2600 standards.
