Absolutely. And all of 2 sprite registers to work with, 2 missiles, and a ball. 

 

Maybe it's generational.  People who just grew up playing at home only seem to see only an imperfect copy of a cabinet version and think "why bother?" They generally played at one level of technology at a time.

 

We played games in two distinct places at two different levels of technology: arcades and home. And we tended to measure the home games by the arcade's standards. So we get excited over "arcade" hacks or homebrews or prototypes--especially a good one like this that shows what was possible on the home consoles.

Hey just stumbled across this, tried out the fixed Pal on the harmony cart. Wow. This is just stunning, thanks so much to the people who found it, fixed it and converted it!

I was just wondering (sorry if this has already been covered somewhere) I noticed there's about 8 different game variations, some of them are definitely two player options (a turn based style like Yars revenge where each player uses a different joystick), has anyone figured out what some of the other variations do?

Bumping...

Did this version of Xevious have the hidden 1-Up flags and the citadels?
