I was trying to get a shot of the secret credits base or screen or whatever it is, but I keep missing it. Can't remember how I found it the first time ;)

I remember loving this game as a kid.  But I also remember how hard it is.  I am so bad.  For a long time I was forgetting to use the shield...  And once the shield goes out, you just have to die, it seems.  So very hard.

I love Major Havoc ... can't believe this game exists...  too bad all I have is the FlashROM 99 ...  looks like I'm out of luck since I have no way to make a floppy.

Do you have the ability to transfer files? An XB2.7 cart and an rs232 card would do it. :)

it has the RS232 card... I've got a copy of editor/assembler .. maybe PM me what I can do?  So I don't clutter up this thread? 

 

I'd love to play this game...  does it have the shooter levels as well?   If not, it still looks awesome.

It is fun... took me several sessions to "get it," so to speak... but I had no experience with the original game.

I'm working toward "E" now, but I am having a hard time determining when to use my shields on Platform D... You only get one, and there seem to be 2 impassable obstacles... One shield, 2 spots where a shield is needed... makes you think. :)

You can get files from the pc to the ti with a straight through serial cable just need a disk controller and a drive or a drive emu. I bet we can find you a controller from the mob here and a gotek drive emu is like 30 on eBay plus a small fee to make it lotherek compatible

Major tom just has the station part and Its very much in my top 10 games for the 99/4a.
