Great video but what about the Colecovision? So many quality homebrews for that system from Collectorvision, Team Pixelboy and Opcode.

Funny, but I've never seen any Colecovision home-brews out in the wild. Maybe I'm just not looking hard enough... Thanks for the heads up!

I'll put more votes in for Toyshop Trouble and Juno First.

 

Lead only got mentioned once and it is also pretty amazing.  Man Goes Down would be my #1 if it was finished.

 

Dungeon is a little disappointing once you get the hang of it.  I wish there was a harder difficulty.

I don't think I've ever seen a single homebrew for sale in person.  If that is what you mean by "the wild." 

I only know about them from the internet.

I haven't played many, but Space Rocks and Stay Frosty 2 blew me away. Just wish I could afford physical copies of both!!!

I don't know why but I find Duck Attack extremely compelling. I'm also a huge fan of Super Cobra. Making us pick just two games is brutal. Some of these titles are like apples, oranges and bananas. Impossible to compare.

Duck Attack is far and away my favorite Adventure-style game. Top 10 game for sure.

https://www.amazon.com/dp/1981060898

 

Its the same book but done in color instead of black & white. I had several requests for a color version, so its the "Deluxe Edition". Be warned, its pricey due to Amazon's high color page pricing.

This is HARD because there are so many amazing homebrews

 

Ladybug & Thrust+ for me

 

SO hard to not mention any Stay Frosty, Oystron, Chetiry, Toyshop Trouble, Fall Down (best 2P experience on system IMO)
