is an original, fast-paced homebrew game released back in 2001 by Joe Grand of Pixels Past
. In SCSIcide
you play the role of a hard drive read head. As the different colored bits scroll by on the hard drive platter, you need to quickly read them in the correct order before you suffer a buffer underflow. As you complete each level, the data scrolls by more and more quickly! How far can you go? If you're a fan of Activision's Kaboom!
, then you'll love SCSIcide
Joe Grand has spent some time recently updating SCSIcide
and has released a new version of the game titled Ultra SCSIcide
. This latest version of the game contains many improvements over the original, such as joystick support (the original version only supports paddles), gameplay improvements, a new PAL version, and more. To help commemorate this new version of the game, Joe Grand and AtariAge have teamed up to create a new label and manual forUltra SCSIcide
. To that end we are holding an Ultra SCSIcide Label Design Contest
to create original label artwork that will grace all copies of Ultra SCSIcide
that are sold through the AtariAge Store after the contest. This artwork will also be featured on the cover of the manual created for Ultra SCSIcide.
The contest runs through February 6th, 2005
and the winner will receive a copy of Ultra SCSIcide
, a Stelladaptor 2600 to USB Interface, and a $25 Gift Certificate in the AtariAge Store.
February 9th, 2005 - Winner Selected!
We are pleased to announce that Nathan Strum
is the winner of the Ultra SCSIcide Label Contest
! Nathan's vision of an exploding hard drive
captures the frenetic pace of Ultra SCSIcide
and what we imagine happens to your data after you finally succumb to the ever increasing speed of the game! It was a tough decision for Joe Grand to make, as many fantastic entries
were submitted for this contest. For his efforts, Nathan will receive a copy of Ultra SCSIcide
, labeled with his winning label design, a Stelladaptor 2600 to USB Interface
and a $25 gift certificate in the AtariAge Store.
Once again, congratulations to Nathan Strum (who has won several recent label contests) and to everyone who took the time to submit the many great labels we received for this contest! It's always a pleasure to witness the artistic talent present in the classic gaming community and we look forward to more such contests in the future!
