They left off an "H" on your "HALL OF FAME" ...

Looks great otherwise.

You are right. The text size was increased and the "H" goes out of the text area. Thank you!

What is the difference between these two box statements about standard and limited edition? Specifically, does "full page visual" simply mean it has the same pictures on the box as the standard, but with the different border/edge color or is this full page visual something extra?

 

Standard:Game box + wedge with professional printing, grooving and cut using a dedicated tool

Limited: Green/Brown Limited Edition game box with a *full page visual* (emphasis mine)

 

Thanks

This game looks really cool... I hope they release more than 20 copies:)

 

In fact, I wish all the games were made available on an ongoing basis. There are lots of people who simply weren't around for earlier releases and can never own some of the games without paying ridiculous prices on EBAY.

 

 

 

WOW! Can you imagine if this game had been coded and released in 1983, let's say? How far it would have set the bar in coding for the Colecovison back in the day!

The fact that it has been coded in only 32k is quite fascinating. Yes, folks there is still lots of life left in our 36-year-old Colecos.

The SGM is sort of a "cheat" as it lets programmers get a little more lazy in code optimization, fluff, bells and whistles etc. Sticking to only 32k truly keeps it real, and maintains 100% compatibility without the addition of an expensive add-on board.

 

Why 32k? Breaking the 32k barrier wouldn't be that big of a deal. Most of the cartridge systems had their rom size expanded during the time.

 

As far as I am concerned, if you can plug it in to the original system without needing any modifications, it's authentic.  Had the crash not happened, it's very likely it would have been broken.  There were Atari 2600 games released that used 4 times the cartridge limit, Pitfall II, superchip, ram plus and other schemes for using larger ROMs or adding RAM.

Yes , of course, i think they plan 30 copies.  As it match with the 30th anniversary of Rick Dangerous.  :-D  :-D

32k is more authentic for a game that could have been released  in the 82-84 range.   Of course, if the Colecovision would have a longer commercial life , Cartridge with bank switching would have appear.     and this game prove that you can do with 32k if you are not lazy :)   You don't need "super game module" and mega Rom to do good game. This game proves it , this  game IMHO surpasses  almost all (if not all)  SGM / mega Rom productions to date.  

 

Just imaging that the team behind that game could do  with an SGM and 128k ou 256k cartridge.  :)

Totaly stock machine, getting the best with no extra hardware, this is the whole beauty of making retro games.

IDK, it seems to me that by deliberately restricting software to what was typical in the very beginning (but not REALLY, given how modern programmers have tools they never had nor the vast quantities of documentation that exists today and an ability to leverage worldwide talent that could not have been done then) seems like a half measure and, in most cases, result in a less capable game. The idea is to release excellent games today for the old system.  If better games can be made on the same console, that should be what developers should be shooting for.

 

For a fairer result, maybe they should only use development systems that were available and in wide use back then. Also, work with nothing but whatever documentation was available back then.  If these limitations were adhered to, I doubt they could come up with much better.

May be... Back in 80's, when independant developpers made games with no time restriction before going to find an editor?

In this configuration, games like Another World or Prince of Persia was born. Same hardware, same languages, custom tools.

Sorry, i may not have explained correctly my point, i'm not an english native so it's sometimes not easy to be understood.Let's say we have been very influenced by demoscene too, my approach is not only for Colecovision but for writing retro games in general and can fit in a simple question 'why using extra hardware/memory when you are not already using fully the machine ?'

I've re-read this and either am missing it, or it's not there.

 

Are the limited editions sold out, not available for purchase, or what exactly?  Site just shows "wait".

 

 

 

Thanks
