So how long does anyone have to play the game? Couple of weeks, 1 month?

"Have to" for what?

 

IMO you have to play the game for years! :)

That's what I get when I've just woken up.

 

Glad I got my own game and I can play it for infinity....and beyond!

The Loaner cart is on its way to Cedar Hills, Utah.

Terrific, thanks! Looking forward to playing and reviewing!

This is how the travel map looks like (25,187 miles).

Very interesting! Now I understand why you wanted to know where in Utah - sorry for being so vague. :)

It came today! It was great to read the history of its creation. And I've already spent some time playing it. Very impressive! And harder than I remembered. :)

Any update? Did you have time to play it already?

My son and I have been playing it. He was disappointed that a 2 player game didn't mean co-op. :) I'll try to get some pictures taken this weekend and start writing my review.

How does a little comparison video sound for a review?

Sounds good. :thumbsup:

 

Please have a look at the C64 version too, because the color scheme is similar to that version.

I would like to move this along now. Could we please have a review and get the item to auction soon.

Sorry it's been taking so long for my review. My wife decided that we need to remodel my sons' rooms, and I've been spending all my free time on them.

 

Is there anything you'll need me to do for the auction besides shipping to the buyer? How much are you expecting to get for it?

I'll have a chat to Al about the auction. I expect doing it with AtariAge promotion would get the best price.

I expect it will bring a couple of hundred bucks I hope.

I'm kind of tempted to offer to buy it outright.

Well, that's kind of up to CPUWIZ... if he wants to entertain an outright purchase, that's fine.

Once your review is up, we should start the sale/auction.

IMO an auction, prominently featured by AtariAge (e.g. on the homepage) would give the best result for CPUWIZ. And: The sooner, the better!

OK, I finally had the time tonight to make the promised video review. It's pretty amateurish (it's actually the first YouTube video I've made), but hopefully it's interesting. And I am so sorry for the delay.

And here are the pictures. I took a drive up Provo Canyon (Utah, USA) during lunch today.

@InfoMan - I really liked the video and how you showed both 2600 and 800 versions at the same time.  Nice job.

@InfoMan can you please get in touch with Albert - he'll be handling the auction and possibly making sure that the poster and box are as good as can be for the buyer.  I expect you will need to arrange for the item to be sent to him in Texas - or wherever he might be these days.
