I'm really looking forward to getting Mappy, Space Game and Dungeon II! I hope boxed versions of these games will be made available online. 

 

Yes, they will be, sometime in November.

Xevious
Atari Jaguar
by Shamus Hammons
 

Xevious is a vertical scrolling shooter arcade game released by Namco in 1982, and distributed by Atari in North America.
 
In Xevious you pilot a combat aircraft called a Solvalou.  You will fly through a host of flying enemies and land-based obstacles that try to shoot you from the sky.  Your mission is to reclaim the enemy-occupied Earth by shooting and bombing the enemy into oblivion.  You must skillfully pilot your spacecraft through harder and harder encounters with the enemy.
 
The Jaguar version of Xevious was written from scratch by Shamus Hammons.  It’s a very faithful rendition of the arcade game, and even maintains the proper aspect ratio, which is why black bars  are visible on the left and right sides of the screen in the Jaguar version.

Robot Zed
Atari 2600
by Chris Spry (Sprybug)
 

One robot remains in the force and it's up to you rescue your fallen robot colleagues.  You control the last Robot, Robot Zed.  In this demo, you run through a rogue-like, horizontally scrolling base level to find and locate one of the fallen robots, to take back to your base for repairs, so you can use their abilities in future levels.  But to find your buddy, you must run through the base and battle the enemy's own robot force.  
 
There are four different robots in total.  The standard robot will sometimes supply you with energy when defeated.  The other three robots will give you their power once defeated.  After you gather their power you can change with down and jump to cycle through your collected powers to pick.  Be careful with how much you use them.  Every time you use a special power, it'll drain your power tank.  Once you run out, you will return back to normal power until you gather more power capsules from those three special enemies.  
 
Good luck in your quest and don't forget to have fun!

Chaotic Grill
Atari 2600
by Philip Blackman
 

Chaotic Grill is an attempt to bring a new version of the arcade classic BurgerTime to the Atari 2600.
 
With a grill in the midst of chaos, you control Pete the chef to build burgers for eagerly awaiting customers.  Sounds like an easy job, right?  Well it would be if it weren't for some other pesky ingredients trying to interfere with your burger assembly line.  It's chaos on the grill.  But you can manage, right?
