In the past few weeks I've converted:

Chess
Crystal Castles
Jawbreaker
K-Star Patrol
Pastfinder
Tapper

Plus one game I cant mention yet. ;)

Any ideas for cart games from the XL that should have made it to the 5200?

David's Midnight Magic is one title I'd love to see ported over to the 5200 :D

Here are some others that come to mind:

Food Fight
Picnic Paranoia
Shamus
Gateway to Apshai

Pastfinder? Very nice.

How about The Bilestoad?

I'd like to see 5200 Tapper released on cart if it's good.

A question I have been waiting for:

1) Dark Chambers or Gauntlet (please!)

2) Orc Attack

3) Crossbow (lightgun support is a problem) Does a lightgun work with the Masterplay or 2600 Redemption controller?

4) Bounty Bob Strikes Back (so we can have a copy without shelling out big bucks)


P.S. I second Cavern of Mars, Food Fight and Shamus!!!

I would pay to have the Chess game on a cart. :-)

Anyone like Eastern Front? I could see where the joysticks could be a mess for this one, though...and your system relentlessly beeping at you & the message coming across for you to wait for the maltreuse (or whatever it's called) before entering orders, even though you THINK your stick is centered...heh heh.

Food Fight would rock on the 5200
Shamus is such a great game
Necromancer
Slime - control maybe?

Airball would be ncie but that would prob be a nightmare with control.

Wow you guys are full of good ideas :)

@Allen: I just finished Caverns of Mars, will test it on a real 5200 a little later.

@Chaz: Whats a reasonable cost for a reproduction cart with one game? I will have a multicart with all these on it pretty soon. If anyone is interested in one PM.

@Kepone: Tapper works pretty much perfectly. I would imagine it plays better with digital sticks than a regular 5200 stick since you have to go and and down so quickly to serve the beer :)

@NovaXPress: The Bilestoad? Never heard of it, you have a ATR image of that?

@jnice: Eastern Front is probably doable since its a 8k or 16k cart already. Isnt it a turn based game?

A version of Checkers please. :wink:

Now that I have the AV mod installed in my 5200, I can't easily pop the 2600 adaptor in to play video checkers !!!

Triad and Pooyan would also be very nice additions to the 5200 catalogue. :) [/b]

It'd be cool to have a "Best of Antic" cart with several of the original Antic type-in games. I loved JD Casten's games, especially Escape from Epsilon!

AFAIK, Bilestoad was announced but never released on the Atari. If you do have a copy, please dump it so it can be archived.

Unfortunately any programs written in Basic can't be translated unless they are compiled in a basic compiler first. Probably too much work.

Demon Attack
Fast Eddie
Food Fight
Lode Runner
Springer
Super Zaxxon
Up N' Down

You really couldn't do a multicart without including DK and DK Jr.

There are a lot of games that would be great to see on the 5200. I would be interested in purchasing a multicart with the 8 bit computer games converted to the 5200.

Did kenfused already do these two? Someone else mentioned DK/DKJr but I wasnt able to find any rom images in the forum.

I just did Atlantis, so I'll take a look at Demon Attack next. It should be a quick job since the games are likely to be very similar.

Hopefully soon there will be enough to fill up 128 slots including the regular multicart material. If there were 128 conversions eventually that would be pretty amazing.

Yes, Kenfused did working versions of Preppie, DK, DK Jr., Satan's Hollow, Tapper and Archon.

Do you have a link to DK/DKJr? I saw Preppie and Satans Hollow, both those worked ok on my 5200.

Archon didnt work for some reason, maybe hes updated that port. I'll check that thread again.

On edit:

Nevermind I just wasnt looking hard enough. ;) Major kudos to kenfused.. I tried Archon again and it works fine!
