Ordered the 7800 titles, but likewise, I was wondering where Froggy was, but chose to order as I wanted a copy of BBCQ with POKEY.

Grr. Finding copies of Trailblazer that don't cost a small fortune will be an adventure for me. I want Crystal Quest and Super Circus!

Is there any way I can be told when the Crystal Quest game will be available with the Pokey chip installed, with a box.  I've been waiting to get this game for years, and doubt that a ballblazer will be heading my way anytime soon.

Hey Al, do you think you'll be at the PRGE this year? If so, I'll probably just buy them from you there.

I was wondering the same thing :)   Is it too early to start a PRGE 2017 thread in the events section?

What  a huge difference the NES-converted gamepad makes for Crystal Quest. tried it with the stock stick and it was almost unplayable. With the gamepad, it's a fast, fun platformer.

 

Panky Panda I didn't try with the stock stick, but it also works great with the NES gamepad and is arguably one of the best games of its kind on the 2600.

NES-converted gamepad?!? What is this you speak of?

 

I too have noticed this new golden age of home-brews to be difficult with original joysticks. I have a Genesis gamepad but it's still a little imprecise in turns. I'd love another alternative.

Can't agree with that one. I've played BBCQ for hours on the PainLine, and have to say that its controls are as tight and precise as you can get with those controllers. And I hate those controllers! It also makes use of both buttons in a way that is intuitive and natural to gameplay and in a manner that most others on the 7800 do not. But I'm sure that the 7800pad makes for a much more enjoyable experience. :)
