How can we make this happen? Maybe a patch contest or a tournament? :)

 

It's not going to happen in the short-term, as I have too much on my plate at the moment.  Down the road, though...

Question for the homebrew fans: What do you think about ebivision? Are there any must-haves?

Allia Quest is a pretty good shooter and Pesco is a decent enough Pac-Man clone (that started out as a Pac-Man port). Not sure if either is really a "must have," but Merlin's Walls is definitely a "must avoid."

I reviewed the Ebivision games here.

 

My big gripes with Allia Quest are that you can't start a game with the fire button and there is no "remaining lives" indicator. But it's a good shooter otherwise.

 

I since downgraded Power Off! to a 4/5, but it's still a solid game.

 

Pesco and Alfred Challenge are both "meh".

 

Merlin's Walls is little more than a tech demo.

Hi!

 

I just wanted to say that my first order of homebrews from the AA store arrived today. The shipping was fast to Canada, the games were well packed, and the production quality is amazing! I am now the proud owner of Haunted Adventure & Seawolf. Now for my next order - I'm thinking Cave In plus another game... Thanks, Al!

Those are great games to start with and Cave In is an excellent next choice!
