Lady Bug & Conquest of Mars are Champ Games.

 

Just curious: Did you play Scramble with a sega pad or atari stick? :)

 

Lady Bug! I knew there was another game from them that I thought was really good. Now I want to play Conquest of Mars.

 

I played Scramble with a Tac 2 controller.

Lady Bug & Conquest of Mars are Champ Games.

And both are still using a stock Atari 2600 (without DPC or ARM support). Especially Lady Bug is a IMO a prime example of excellent game design and great attention to detail.

I also played Anguna for a little while. It's the adventure game I always wanted the 2600 to have. I was playing it on a 7800 so I didn't play long (since I couldn't toggle to the inventory/map screen).


I can toggle to the map screen on my 7800. Press one of the console buttons ... is it pause Perhaps? Try again, it should work.

Anniversary is coming up.  Being the geek that I am, I naturally asked for a bunch of homebrew games.  I can't wait to see what I get!

I'm intrigued by the Crystal Quest game.  It looks awesome.  Sadly, it appears that everyone has caught on to the need for "Ballblazer" carts and they are now hard to find for cheap.  Doesn't that just chap yer "Ballz"?  :-D
